Innovative Resorts International / Timeshare sales/SCAM
I was contacted by "Charles" at "Innovative Resorts International" who stated that his company had a buyer for the timeshare I own. This was a total surprise to me - I had not previously contacted this company. Charles advised that if I did not have a "Title Insurance" policy in effect I'd have to buy one in order to complete the sale. This is an immediate red-flag, as Title Insurance is issued by an excrow company to insure that the deed to your property is free of all liens or claims. It remains in effect for a period of time and covers the time prior to your purchase - it does not insure against future claims. After being transferred to the "supervisor", "Jim Brown", I was advised that I would need to submit a "deposit" for $1995 with a credit card in order to provide for the title search at the resort and the county offices. Since the resort is in Hawaii, this immediately raised another red-flag, as it is NOT necessary to physically travel to the actual resort to confirm records. When I advised "Jim" that I would not be paying out any money to sell the property, he became arrogant and dismissive, as if I was the one with a problem.
After reviewing the internet for information about the company, I found other websites advising that this company is indeed a scam. Please do your research carefully and don't believe everything you hear.
Be advised - as many people have said, don't pay an up-front fee to sell your timeshare. Most likely you won't ever see the money again.
