I was called by Trip.COM over the phone (1-866-221-5609) to sell my time-share. They were trying to buy my time-share by offering me hefty price. They called me for 2-3 months before I agreed to sell my share. I got numerous email exchanges with this company along with so called lawyer, Nathan Rogers' of 'Law Office of Steven Haligas' (407-205-0003) to sign a contract. Once everything is finalized, I got a call from my resort office, probably a fraud one from 800-884-5265 to let me know that they got a transfer offer from the law office.
I need to pay 10% of transfer fee to proceed further. They guy provided me with all the neccessary banking information to send wire for 10% of the amount. I called TRIP.COM and after negotiation, they hiked the price by another 10%. Then I got a call from the lawyer that he received instructions to send updated form with new price and asked me to sign which I did. Then next day, I got a call from Mathew Myers of IBFC Bank 917-341-2082 that I have 2 incoming wires from Scotia Bank of Mexico. He asked me if I recognize these. I said yes. He said I should reecived money in the afternoon in my account.
After 2-3 hours, I got another call from him telling me that Mexico government put hold on these wires as I didn't pay capital gains tax while transferring money. In the meantime, I got an email from SEGOB (firstname.lastname@example.org) to inform me that I have to pay taxes from my account which TRIP.COM is trying to pay. Per law, Mexico SAT department does not accept money from the buyer and it's the seller's responsibility to pay capital gain. They also informed me that I don't have to file 1040 in my country. I checked over the internet and found it a genuine government department.
I wired the money to that account and got the confirmattion that they received it and the hold will be released. This happened on late Friday. On Monday morning, I got another call from TRIP.COM to pay brokerage fee of 5%. I called the law office again and Nathan told me to pay to get money released and I paid that also. As of now, I didn't receive any money in my account THIS IS A FRAUD CALL. All NUMBERS ARE REAL and ARE ATTENED BY THE REAL PEOPLE BUT TO SCAM YOU AND NOT TO BUY ANY OF THE TIMESHARE. THEY WILL GLADLY TAKE YOUR CALL AND HANDLE THOSE PROFESSIONALLY.
