Mr. Casey, if you insist on an upfront fee then your business is a scam .... actually upfront fee companies are merely selling advertisement, not timeshares .... get your fee at closing and you'll gain respect in the resale industry.

I've never seen even one verified proven sale that an upfront free company has completed and I've been reading and posting on timeshare forums for almost 10 years .... all they want is that upfront fee, period.

So JJ Timeshare forums are the only source of true information? You must be kidding me, you use this "experience" to discredit businesses you have never heard of?

SHILL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Someday all of you will look back at this and kick yourself for taking this idiots advice. What happens if you listen to him like I did? It will cost you thousands of dollars! I'm sure there is a liability issue here. Take his advice and you are stuck, some timeshares can be transferred out of your name, some can't. When you pay the stupid thing off it is yours forever.

Remember who gave you the bad advice....JJ @ RedWeek. SUE HIM SILLY!

Hey JJ, let's see your proof of anything you have done for anyone,sales rentals ect.

Redweek is a timeshare ad site, nothing more, nothing less. Do you pay your local newspaper to place an ad in their classified ads section .... of course you do, however Redweek nor newspapers charge in the hundreds to thousands of dollars for their service .... they charge a set rate minimal fee unlike upfront fee resale companies and scam charities.

YES, I am a SHILL for all timeshare owners and all people that are interested in timeshares by educating them on all scams related to the subject of timeshare. You can't sue someone for giving advice on a timeshare forum .... goes to show how ignorant you are.

BTW, jayjay is not a him .... jayjay is a her.

Beware Scam Companies: Platinum Realty Exchange and American Title Escrow Services

Beware, these guys are slick with words, quick with answers and professional with inciting your involvement. Documents they supply look and feel real. Got called requesting whether I wanted to rent my timeshare in Mexico. No upfront fees by the contract agent. When the escrow company comes into the picture, they have a combination of fees as you progress closer towards getting our money. As they add fees for you to put up front, they incite you by saying that the purchaser has been contacted and deposited the equivalent amount of money so that you will get it back. They explain that it's all about the purchaser looking for tax savings that he is willing to pay the large rental fees and all other outlays. I was approached to pay Mexican government taxes and, transfer fees. Yet, they sent all documents that looked like real government documents, true deposits in escrow accounts from the purchaser and even investigating in the internet, they seem to be on the ball. Discussions by the escrow company and contract agent seemed to difficult to not believe it is all legitimate. Stay away from the contract agent who solicits you with a rental and/or purchase contract called Platinum Realty Exchange and the title escrow company called American Title Escrow Services. They baited me for thousands of dollars. Funny thing is now there is another company calling me telling me that they can pay me a high price for the selling of my timeshare. Yet when they sent me the contract, customer service guarantee and transfer process, the documents were almost word for word identical between the two different companies. The details of the companies that scammed me and I recommend you avoid are:

American Title Escrow Services 309 West Washington Street Chicago, Illinois, 60606 312-379-8735 & 312-379-8736 Toll free number (USA customers only) 866-978-4611 Fax number: 773-654-4896 www.americantitlees.com Names involved: Anthony Smith, Stephen Edwards, Brian Jones, Andrew Walsh, Amy Fuentes, Anthony Franco

Platinum Realty Exchange 6429 Richmond Avenue #130 Houston, Texas, 77057 Toll Free: (866) 978-0539 Direct Line: (713) 568-9630 (713) 568-9631 Fax: (713) 929-2098 customer@platinumrealtyexchange.com info@platinumrealtyexchange.com www.platinumrealtyexchange.com Names involved: George Kennedy, Michael Hernandez, David Lopez

It's none of your or my business what Redweek netted from memberships last year. Redweek is a legitimate internet timeshare ad site that charges a fee for their services like you would pay a fee to a newspaper to list ads in their classifieds.

I have been successful contacting the resorts I own at. Both of my timeshares have agreed to my deeding back my timeshare. One is charging me $400 for that privilege (to cover title search) and the other is not charging anything. I would definitely start with contacting your company to see if they will accept a deed back. They will not pay you anything, and will certainly cost less than one of these get you out quick companies.

Call now! It is so hard to know if people are legit or not, but I checked with my attorney and he said don't pay upfront, especially when it's thousands of dollars. I have been successful contacting the resorts I own at. Both of my timeshares have agreed to my deeding back my timeshare. One is charging me $400 for that privilege (to cover title search) and the other is not charging anything.

RE. Reliability of timeshare rental company called "Timeshare by owner" out of Florida

Have been contacted by agent from "Timeshare by Owner" out of Florida. They say they will guarantee double income from rentals to cover the fee for their advertizing expenses which we pay. Does anyone out there know of this company and if they are reputable? We do need to rent our timeshare so we do not lose the points and are considering RedWeek. However Red Week seems much more complicated than letting a rental company do it. Thanks for any help with this helene113

If you were contacted by a company telling you they will rent your timeshare for a big price it's a SCAM.

There is NO guarantee that ANY timeshare can be rented .... the fact they stated this is proof that they're a scam. As far as advertising your rental on Redweek it's very EASY but you must be competitive in pricing (depending on supply and demand of your resort and time owned) in this economy.

Also, any entity (socalled company) that cold calls you out of the blue is more than likely a scam.

Timeshare By Owner is one of the best known scammers with thousands of complaints against them. The Florida Attorney General filed a lawsuit against them July 2010 for deceptive and unfair practices. Stay away from them. Hope that helps.

I work for Timesharsbegone. We acquire timeshares. I charge $985-1285. (depending on what the transfers cost me) to acquire your timeshare. I can email you several deeds I have gotten in the last few weeks to show you I do what I say. You pay NOTHING in advance, nothing upfront. You don't pay until the timeshare is out of your name. On the web at: Timesharesbegonellc.com

I don't get it. Last year, you were posting here saying how Timesharesbegone took over ownership of your timeshare in Tennessee for $985-1285. You even provided the details of the "sale". Now, you're referring to Timesharesbegone in the first person like you own it or work for it.

Which is it? Are you a customer or a proprietor? Or, like those old Schick razor commercials, is it a matter of "I was so impressed that I bought the company"?

I'm not accusing you of doing anything illegal. I'm just wondering why last year you came on these boards hailing the praises of this company who "bought" your timeshare from you and now you tell us that you work for that company.

So you were so impressed by what that company did that you decided to go work for them?

I believe it is a service sorely needed by some who don't wish to or cannot travel anymore. What are they supposed to do? I got an 85 year old woman out of a timeshare in Tennessee. She lived in Arizona. Hadn't been there for 15 years. No family (That wanted the timeshare). Told me her finances were barely getting her by. I know she is relieved not to be burdened with a property that is a liability. The resort had told her it was an asset-Ha. The resort had the audacity to insist she pay them $299. to transfer the property on their books (even though it had already been legally deeded away from her at the Cumberland County Courthouse). No way she had to pay, she asked the resort for a copy of the contract stating where she would pay them a transfer fee and they could not produce one. Just trying to scare an older person into paying them more money.

Yes I do work there. I believe I can get 99 percent of people out of their timeshares.
