Resort Equity Solutions / Fees
In Cabo San Lucas we traded our 2 timeshare for a Vacation plan with Raintree. One is in Canada and one in Mexico. Our timeshares have been given to Resort Equity Solutions for trade. They started with a phone call to usesaying the wanted cred card to charge for the search of tile etc. for $349+Tax US and wanted a copy of proof we own them and that they had sent us an email. We found out later that they would have charged that twice to us. We did not give them a cred card at this time and there was no email. I looked up thier website and sent them the proof of ownership and then we reccieved a threathening email saying if we did not complete the transfer of the timeshares within 30 days they would ruin our credit among other things.
The next phone call from them they started with wanting $795 US by the end of the conversation they wanted a second $795 and a credit card number and we pay all of the transfer fee the timeshares required. At this point we are over $3000.00 Cdn.
I had called both timeshares and got the information required for transfer. We then received an email stating they wanted Power of attorney. We stated we would not give them Power of attorney. The forms we signed say the office is in Florida. They say the timeshare will be transferred to their corporation in Mexico and we need to pay the corporate transfer fees pluse $495+tax(18%)US. We get phone calls from California and Texas. The last call from Texas the fellow said he was in Cancun. I cannot find any where that they are a Coropation. At this point we have given them nothing because they are refusing to give us a name to transfer the timeshare to.
We are at a point not know what to do. We are not refusing to give them the timeshares we are not prepared to pay over $3, 000.00 Cdn
