Type of a scam Travel/Vacations
This company called and offered twice as much money than we paid for the timeshare that we own. Said his client needed to purchase 30 units before the year ended for a corporate tax write-off. Very legitimate stating no money is due (for realtor fee) until after settlement. Listed all steps in the whole process. Called 2 days later stating the our resort requires a $3000+ transfer fee up front. When I stated that it sounded too much like a scam, the salesman started yelling at me until I shut him down and told him to send me his real estate license. Have not heard back from him in over 2 weeks. I called our timeshare company to confirm the transfer fee. They stated that it is nowhere near $3000.

Type of a scam Rental
Real Estate Pro agent Daniel Corwin told me that a buyer was interested in acquiring a group of timeshares at Paradise Village, Puerto Vallarta, to use for convention rentals, and would like to buy mine. My transfer would be protected by an escrow account held at ACC Holdings LLC, 1057 Veterans Memorial Blvd, Kenner, La, 70062. and that my sale and receipt of funds was guaranted. All of this was accompanied by paperwork, supporting these statements. I have been defrauded by Real Estate Pro and ACC Holding of upfront fees and taxes amounting to $7147.10 plus wire charges of $90.00, by being solicited for a scam involving a purported buyer for my timeshare at Paradise Village, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, and induced to wire a processing transfer fee of 2190.00 on Sept 13, 2016, and a 19% Mexican tax liability fee of $4, 957.10.
