FRAUD/SCAM

Complaint Rating:  96 % with 325 votes
Contact information:
Innovative International Resorts Inc.
United States
Today I got a call from a Sienna James from a company called Innovative Resorts International Inc. and she proceeded with the typical timeshare sales spiel “ I have a buyer ready to close on your unit….with some outrageous asking price and so on….she kept going on about how she could sell my property and so on. Well I told her I would have to call her back and she told me well if you are going to do this you have to do it today within the hour….so I said “I will call you back!!” Little does Sienna know that I am in the legal field and I know how to do some digging on these timeshare companies and came to find out that they are a very, very new company only open for about a week and also they are not licensed, which therefore tells me that this is a FRAUDULENT COMPANY/ A SCAM! I urge all timeshare owners to stay away from this company and not give them your credit cards! Also Sienna told me that her company is out of New York but then told me she was working in Florida and gave me a Florida number and when I asked her for the new York number for her company she said no you will have to call my Florida number …Definitely some sort of scam here!

I've been dealing with a guy who originally said he was with C.V.S. When I told him that C.V.S. has a F rating with BBB, bad rep, etc., he told me today that they were merging with Innovative Resorts International. He said IRI has an A+ rating with BBB. I couldn't even find them under New York BBB or Florida. I was given a customer number with 631 area code. My gut keeps telling me that this is just another scam. I sure wish these companies would all just get put out of business.

I got a call from innovative resort internationl about 3 mo. ago. A man buy thr name of jack bell, he is a rep. jack told me that he had 3 buyer for my timeshare at the Bonaventture @ Miami FL. It was hard to think this is true. After jack told me the process on how timeshares are sold, i felt alot better. To make a long story short, i went ahead and paid them 2, 899.00 for a deposit. they told me i will get this back . It took only 62 day for innovative resort international to sell my timeshare. I HAVE A CHECK IN MY HAND FOR 32, 700.00


THANK YOU INNOVATIVE RESORT INTERNATIONAL !

Hi, my name is Joseph Alterado, and i received the same phone call from Innovative Resorts International. They promised as long as my deed and title search would come back clear i would have no real out of pocket costs. Being very skeptical i researched their company on the BBB and found they had a A plus. Maybe you should check your spelling a little more carefully. Being stubborn this did not convince me yet, and i wanted a gaurantee which no other company will give you. So the rep i was speaking with, Robert, sent me a blank contract through to my fax machine. As soon as i looked at the contract i knew i was in. I let them charge my discover card for $1999. A few weeks after i noticed the charge had been released back onto my card so i called customer service to see if there was a problem. They explained to me that my deed and title search came back clear and they would call me with a closing date. About a month later i received a call from customer service explaining that we had a closing date in 2 weeks. After those two weeks went by i started to get anxious hoping this was the last time i would have to deal with this. not even two weeks later i received a call from a "courier service" attempting to set up a meeting place. I met with the gentleman the next day and he handed me a check for $42, 500. Thank you very much innovative i will be calling you very soon in hopes of selling my Westgate resort.

For those of you reading complaints on this discussion board. Member Legal101, is the owner of a scam company. They have an F rating, and have been raided by the authorities several times. She is not a credible witness in any of the business practices of Innovative Resorts International Inc. She owns a scam operation with her brother. She has also been charged with organized crime, fraud, and money laundering. She is complaining on this discussion board, because she would rather scam you than have you deal with a REAL company! Please feel free to check her out!

In response to member "the TRUTH about legal 101": I actually dont have any affiliation with any of these companies. I am just an unfortunate person that gets sucked into scams like this with the promise of finally selling my timeshare, Vacation Village at Bonaventure. I have been duped by a few of these companies now so I am just a little more educated about these things today and can speak out about these companies. Also, this shows that this company Innovative is a scam, come on why else would they get defensive and try to throw some other company and/or person under the bus on this board. Not getting duped again! I rest my case.

INNOVATIVE RESORTS INTERNATIONAL is in fact a DEFINATE SCAM!!! They call victims, saying that they used to work for one of the few real time share companies and tell the victim that the company they were dealing with went out of business and that they are taking over the contract BUT the catch is ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS SEND THEM MORE MONEY. IF YOU ARE DUMB ENOUGH TO GIVE THESE JOKERS MONEY...YOU DESERVE IT. I know for a fact that they have no license and that they are really located in South Florida and that the NY address on their ONE PAGE website is just a virtual office in NY. WHAT A JOKE. PLEASE JUST KEEP HANGING UP ON THEM BECAUSE THEY WILL CALL YOU BACK CONSTANTLY. Do yourself a favor and DO NOT ACCEPT blocked calls at your home or don't pick-up restricted numbers on your cell phone. If they contact you please call the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services @ 850-488-3022 to let them know that an unlicensed tekemarketing company contacted you to try to con you into giving them your credit card by creating false hope and while your at it contact the attorney general @ 850-414-3300 to tell them the same thing. If you are an unfortunate victim, make sure you call your contract company and dispute the charge on your credit card. Usually you have 30 days to dispute a charge on most credit cards and if they say that they have a contract signed by you (the cardholder), make sure you tell them that it's NOT EVEN A LEGAL CONTRACT (according to a lawyer) and that so called recording they do at the end of the transaction ISN'T EVEN RECORDED HALF THE TIME and they coach you thru the whole thing!! What a joke. Make sure you pick a company to actually sell your timeshare carefully. I hope at least some people are educated by this.

Hello my name is earnest, and i got a call from a representative a couple months back. They explained to me the sales processing and what i was responsible for. I received a contract and was called once a week from their inventory manager, keeping me updated with the sale. I recently received a check from them and am completely satisfied.

Could someone please help me? I have been looking all day for Innovative Resorts International Inc. from Jericho, NY online all day. They called me and had someone to buy two of my timeshares for $30, 000.00. I would just have to pay $4, 000 on a credit card, however I would get it back after the sale. I was on vacation and he said I had to do it right then and there but I had no information and I was not giving out a credit card number. My dad tried to pay another company called APEX and give them his timeshares and we backed out and this is how they got my contact number. Please help, I don't want to lead my dad on a bad track. I did look up www. sunbiz.org and the only thing I got out of it was that it was filed for on 09/17/09 and they have two listings. One if New York however it is listed as Mellville, NY and another in FL. Thanks, Just lost

sbf815 ... I have done a little digging of my own on this company. I wouldnt suggest doing business with this company unless you are willing to lose a good amount of money! Trust me the reason you cant find anything yet is because they are brand new and they are fraudulent. I got a call from them as well and decided not to do business after I did some research. Good luck, and I hope you make the right decision

Oct, 15th 09,
I just got a call this week. I talked to a lady Josephine Walker that said she had a buyer and all I had to pay was the title search. When they ask for upfront money all this does is cause one to believe they are dealing with a scam artist. I would be glad to do business with the person that has a buyer. However I will not pay any out of pocket expenses until the closing of the deal. I would then be happy to pay them a finders fee that is agreed upon prior to the sell. There are so many scams today that one does have to guard themselves. If this is a real company with honorable intentions then why ask for upfront money. Unfortionaly if it is for real we all loose.

I think that this company is scamming people. I went to apply for a sales job with them and they are paying HUGE commissions to people which was a red flag. They are promising people that they can make thousands of dollars per week and they even showed me how much the sales people there made the previous week. It sounded too good to be true so I asked lots of questions and they were very cagey with their answers. I wouldn't advise anyone to do business with them.
