Has anyone done business with Woodland Properties and Limite Equity Properties? They wanted to buy my timeshare. The buyer has already deposited the funds from the sale contract in an account that I signed to open at CitiBanamex, but yesterday I called many times and the phone number provided in the back account contract is not valid.
It was a scam

I have talked to sales broker George Micheals and Amanda Gill senior Broker, of Master International Company, 1090 3rd Ave #9B, New York, NY 10065 and Richard Shore Head Escrow Officer of Management Group International, 132 Columbus Ave, New York, NY 10023 for the last 2 months. In that time they all very nice and answered all my questions, encourage me to check them out. I was very apprehensive because it was too good to be true and seemed quite simple. Letter of Intent, Sales aggrandizement and Citibanamex’s trust application were sent to me, I was told at the beginning we would not have to send any money or pay any fees. (which didn’t sound right to me) I went along with everything as long as we did not have to put our Social Security information or have to pay any money. When the senior broker, Amanda Gill called and went over Sales Contract and explained that we need to pay $1570.00 for a Temporary Naturalization (90day) and $550.00 for a Tax Identification number because our timeshare was in Mexico. She reassured me that $2120.00 would be reimburse by buyer and that the buyer set up a Notary in Mexico to take care of the process. Or we could go do the process ourselves through the Mexico Consul ( Which they know that isn’t that easy). Every step of the way I did my research, which was not easy because there was really not much information on the Companies. But I did find out that there is no such thing as 90 day Mexico Temporary Naturalization, and you can start the process in USA but you must finish it in Mexico to get it, and it is for 6mos or longer.

Based on information in our files, the BBB has reason to believe this company is not legitimate. As of January 22, 2020, we have been unable to confirm if they are operating out of Minnesota. The address listed on their website is a virtual office. BBB was able to find information from a timeshare association linking this business to fraudulent activity.

We have been contacted by Consolidated Financial Management Inc. out of Colorado Springs. The person is offering to rent our timeshare for 10 weeks at about what it would cost us to rent it. Has anyone been contacted by them in regard to renting out their timeshare weeks. I was just contacted by Consolidated Financial Management Inc. as well. It’s definitely a scam. They asked me questions about my UVC membership and I gave them phony answers. They didn’t even bother to validate and sent me an offer for $22k. The Rental Offer I received is very simple and provides no official language about the terms of the sale.
My “agent” is David Garcia out of Colorado Springs, CO. I asked him if there were any upfront costs to this sale. His response was “No, you do not have to pay anything. We are legit.” The moment he said “We are legit,” I knew he was full of sh*t.

New here, but I will get to the point. I purchased points via a spot in Mexico for 9k around 4 years ago. I posted to sell it 2 years ago on couple sites, but nothing came of it.
Fast forward to last week. Got a call from all services travel saying they want to make me an offer and that there’s a client that is buying up points for this area (this was after I gave them the hotel and amount of points). They say no wire transfer, no money upfront. They will wire me the money once deal is made and then after they start the transfer of points.
I have yet to get a contract, but I am not dumb and won’t send them any money obviously. Anyone dealt with anything like this? I doubt it’s legit, but nothing they said has seemed off.
Thanks! I found the website allservicestravel.com. They go by the name All Travel Services which doesn’t match their website name. Their website is full of nonsense wording. They claim to be in business “with the same clients” for 25 years yet their website is 1.5 years old. They are 100% scam. This is…

A reader reported that they received an unsolicited “offer” to rent their timeshare ownership with the Grand Mayan resorts located in Mexico. As is common with the fraudulent schemes targeting consumers who own timeshares located in Mexico, the “offer” includes a monetary amount that is simply far from any realistic rental value.
When consumers accept the bait, they are then told that government taxes and certificates must be purchased before funds can be released to them. The offer appears to come from a brokerage located in New York City using the name MB Realty LLC, but no brokerage using that names shows as registered with the state.
The Better Business Bureau does have a listing, which shows two consumers posted complaints claiming the business is operating as a timeshare related scam.

Timeshare Resale Scams are ever present. Slick sales people with no scruples make promises they cannot nor intend to keep. They ask for money to perform services that are bogus. The net result is the well meaning consumer pays money expecting to get more…but it never comes.

This scam company filed fraudulent paperwork with the state of Iowa to re-register a real company that had previously gone out of business. They are using an address of a real local property management company.
They claim to have a buyer, and eventually request the seller wire money to Mexico to cover non existent fees such as “Title Insurance” (Mexican Timeshares are non deeded properties), “Temporary Naturalization Certificate to open bank account”, “International Capital Gains Taxes”, “International Notary Fees”, etc.
This is a fraudulent scam.

This is a recent scam, with reports beginning in early 2018. They are offering making purchase offers, unsolicited, via phone for Mexican properties. Of course you must wire money for fees, (between 3-7K) and here is where the scam starts. Using multiple alias. None of the names shown have profiles on the website and no professional profiles of these individuals can be found anywhere on the web. One reports claims they want to use “American Finance” for escrow, but there is no record of this company online.
