Blue Bay Advisors / False Claim

Phone: 407-472-3340

Back in April 2008 a guy by the name of Anthony Ramos called me and told me that he could rent my time share at orange lake and country club for a lifetime membership of $1600 to cover all future maintenance fees. He send me the contract and ask me to sign it. He said he would rent the timeshare in May 2008 for a week but he never did it and failed to deliver his promise. Blue Bay Advisors in the mean time charged my Amex for $1600. Later I get another call from Anthony Ramos saying that he is not working for Blue Bay Advisors anymore as they never paid his salary and they were a riff off company. He told me to call Amex and get mu $1600 back. So I did my Amex decided to favor the company as they had my signed contract. Then Anthony Ramos told me that he can help me get my money back if I sign up with his new company in Florida. But I was not going to trust him again. I keep calling them but they never get back to me. They made a false claim and ripped me off for $1600 and I want that money back. How can you help me? Their website is also down and they claim that they are maintaining it. What a bunch of liars. They should all be fined by the government for this. I am sure may people have fallen into their traps.

    They are at it again as Nationwide Properties Int.

    I was contacted by someone calling themself Henry Scott in an effort to sell my timeshare for me. Identifying himself as being from Nationwide Properties. I went through all the information and allowed them to try to sell the property and was contacted the very next day with a very high offer- Thats when my investigation began.

    I had trouble finding their website, no wonder it had been up for less than a month. www.nationwideproperties.biz The registrar's name was Joe Esposito:
    Esposito, Joe jesp076@aol.com
    Nationwide Properties International
    205 East Central Blvd
    Suite 302
    Orlando, Florida 32801
    United States
    (407) 797-5208

    When I called and asked for their physical address, this is the one they gave me after some hesitation and shuffling around on the phone:
    189 S. Orange Ave. Suite 1520 Orlando, FL 32801

    The website was the cincher for me. After I had tracked Joe Esposito to Blue Bay Advisors, which was taking people's money to sell their timeshare but never performing any services. On their "ABOUT" page it mentioned Bluebayadvisors.com. They had obviously just copy and pasted the information from their old website without even proofreading it!
    The website's "ABOUT" page from 7/21/09 is pasted below:

    I told the lady that called I was not interested in doing business with anyone connected with Joe Esposito or Blue Bay Advisors. I then got a call back from a "supervisor" he explained to me that Joe Esposito was fired a long time ago, when I asked how long ago? he said years. (but Joe Esposito was the registrar of their website less than a month previous- remember) They also claimed to have nothing to do with Blue Bay Advisors- but there it was right on their website.

    These guys are a RIP OFF- they'll just shut down and start operating under a different name though. But at least I didn't get taken!

    FYI- Do your research before you give anyone money to sell your timeshare. Don't get caught up in the fantastic profit you could make or let greed be your guide, use common sense. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

    I unfortunately was taken by this company...and went to the end of the earth to get my money back to no avail. I went to the BBB, and filed numerous reports. Every time I contacted Blue Bay in regards to my contract or the status of my timeshare...they would give me a voice mail or they gave me a new agent who had to locate my file and new nothing about it. I can give a list of names of all the "agents" I dealt with, but never heard from again after the initial conversation...Joe Esposito was one of them. They always claimed the prior agent was no longer working there, no longer on my account, or "fired" because of his performance...they continued by making more empty promises to try to rectify the lack of service. The receptionist wouldn't even give me her name as she was afraid of being documented. They lied to me on all counts, and once they knew I was aware of what they were doing and wanted my money back, they stopped taking my calls altogether. Every complaint the BBB sent them on my behalf...was ignored, however they told the Bureau that they either had already handled it or that they were going to contact me and rectify the situation, but never did.

    Too bad these reports weren't out about Blue Bay prior to my dealings with them...it would have saved me a lot of stress and the money I lost. Not a good feeling. I am glad it is out now and if I can keep someone from going through this same ordeal, then that can be some consolation to me.

    If you or anyone reading this knows of any action I can take or any opportunity that may exist to help me recover any of the money I lost to this scam, please advise!

    I got taken for $775 which was supposed to be the fee for the estoppel letter and title search. They are a marketing company and are working with Timeshare Goldline. I just found this out because I didn't know how Timeshare Goldline knew I was selling my timeshare. Now Timeshare Goldline is feeding me the same line but this time the upfront costs are $1900.

    In 2 years, Blue Bay Advisors did absolutely nothing. I filed several complaints with the BBB to no avail. Everyone I have talked to in the past no longer works there and the number I had for them has been disconnected. I did send in all the info. I had to the DA's office in Florida because they should be stopped from scamming people.

    Back in 2007 Blue Bay Advisors scammed me out of $645. I didn’t know better and certainly didn’t know anything about real estate. In the real estate business, money is not exchanged until the property is sold. Mr. Enrique Melendez stated that I needed to send $295 for the estoppel letter and $350 for the title search. This is not the process if they’re a reputable real estate business. Never pay up front... this is something they would do, which is why they get a percentage of the sale price. They cashed the check and didn’t hear anything from them. I made a BBB complaint but they claimed that the heck bounced. It didn’t bounce... I had a copy of the cashed check with their signature on it.

    As for the employees, look over your right shoulder and do the right thing. If you know they’re scamming fellow employees and clients, report them or don’t work with or for them.
