Resorts International Unlimited / Scam billing

1 United States Review updated:
Contact information:

I'm really upset for what this so called company has done with me. Bobby promise a lot of things but as soon I agree and deposit the money on my credit card I never heard of Bobby again. They robbed more than $1000 from me, but what makes me more mad is that they continue to do this with others. How can we stop them? and how can we recover our money? I'm very radical at this point because I don't want them to get away with my money.

This is not the way of doing business. I'm sure that Resorts international will have to paid for what they do with us in court.

    I had the same problem with Bobby. He tells you you will sell or sell your property and that you are garrantee to get your money back. It is been six months now. I called the customer service and they don't want to give my money back. Never give them money.

    Clayton and Liz, your descriptions sound so much like the experience I'm having right now. I just called Resorts International Back and discussed how this would all work with them. they gave me the exact same description... cost about 1300 bucks for an advertising fee. They sent me to their "finance department" to see about helping with the advertising fee because I said I don't think I have it now. they would lower it to $1000 with a "Florida Resident" discount, by using their own address as they're based in Florida. Does that say red flag all over it?! I paid 5K for my time-share. How could I sell all the bonus weeks for more than double that during a year? It sounded too good to be true. Oh well.

    Thank you sooo much for contributing to this thread so I'd find it on google search guys!

    A legitimate timeshare sales/rental company shouldn't ask for any money up front. RIU method of advertising is to assign an Ad ID, listing an entry for the timeshare in a database. RIU posts links to their website at various other sites for access to this database. Therefore, the specific timeshare is not really advertised directly to the public. I'm sure it only takes about a minute to add new entries to the database, never having to actually post any new ads. Operating like this, a specific timeshare may never be selected.

    Resorts International Unlimited - no results
    United States

    I as others have been scammed by Resorts International Unlimited. I screwed up & gave them $1370 to rent my 'bonus weeks' for a nice amount. I guess I'm more gullible than I thought.

    An expensive lesson. Pay only after results on ANYTHING!!

THEY SUCKERED ME TO ON A TIME SHARE IN KISSEMMEE FL. 3 MIN.FROM DISNEY WORLD. I CALLED THE RESORT 13 BUILDINGS 9 STORIES TALL IN FEBRUARY THE PLACE WAS FULL BUT 1 ROOM FOR THE WHOLE MONTH. BUT NO RENTAL WK FOR ME AS PROMISED AND IT HAS BEEN 1 YEAR. THERE EXCUSE WAS THE ECONOMY IS WEAK NOW. I TOLD THEM IT NOT MY PROBELM I HELD UP TO MY PART OF THE BARGAIN DO YOUR PART.THEY SAY MONEY CAN'T BE REFUNDED. I WENT TO PORTA VALLARTA IN JAN. THIS YR. TO RESORT I HAVE TIME SHARE AT. THIS PLACE IS BEAUTIFUL AND I LOVE IT. I TALKED TO A MAN THAT WAS STAYING THERE FROM COLARADO HE BOUGHT A TIME SHARE THERE BECAUSE DURING THE SELL HE WAS TOLD THAT A COMPANY FROM MIAMI FL. WOULD RENT OUT EXTRA WEEKS .SO THE MAN PAID OUT THE EXTRA $1100 . HE TOLD ME HE DONE IT AS A INVESTMENT OF HIS MONEY. NOTHING WAS HAPPENING SO DECIDED TO CALL THEM. THERE NUMBERS WHERE NOT WORKING AND OUT OF ORDER. WHILE HE WAS IN MEXICO THIS YEAR WHILE I WAS THERE HE COMPLAINED TO THE RESORT AND [censor]ED AND RAVED. THE RESORT GAVE HIM BACK $700. SO THERE IS A LITTLE SUNSHINE FOR US PEOPLE WHO HAVE GOT SCREWED. FOR ME I HAVE BEEN CALLING RIU ALL DAY LONG AND GOT NOTHING BUT BUSY SIGNAL.

    Do you guys not have any consumer rights to stop Resorts International Unlimited from keep coning people.

    This Bobby contcted me regarding my time share back in March 2009. He told me that he would be able to provide rental income of $2000.00 per quarter. That was 15 months ago and I've recievied nothing.

    They tell you all this and take your money then they do nothing, when you complain to them again they do nothing. They are in breach of contract by tell people what they know you want to hear, then providing no such service.

    Can't people in the US claim off their credit card companies because Resorts International Unlimited have sold them a service which they have not provided, it's called Resorts International Unlimited . In the UK this is covered by Section 75 of the consumer credit act, and holds the credit card compamies also at fault for Resorts International lese and deception against the consumer.

    They are still at it in 2010. I have been fighting with them for a year now and no action on their part. There are no return phone calls or sales. Why haven't they been stopped with a law suit or the legal system shutting them down? Is there a case pending? How do we stop them?

    I've been hit as well for $899 exactly one year ago. And in this tight economy and trying times, who can afford to just give this company from h*ll their hard earned money. I know I can't. Is there anyone out there that has any means of starting a class action suit against these PIGS before they shut down and go out of business and "country" with our money. I sure hope so. No one deserves to be conned out of their money with the promise and GUARANTEE to rent or sell their timeshares. I even filed a complaint with the Better Busines Bureau with no results. I think its a shame a company can have this many complaints filed against them and nothing done about. They just get away with it. Well I sure wish everyone luck that we will get some kind of redemption from this company for all our loss money, mental pain, anquish and suffering.

    Hi all. I've been scammed/conned too by these people and from your past experience, it seems like there is nothing that can be done. Doesn't their breaking of a promise provide legal grounds for fraud? They promised something the knew they could NOT deliver. That's a breech in contract and I'm not too well versed on the law but shouldn't we be able to have some kind of class action suit against them? If we all chipped in for a good lawyer we might be able to get our money back. I'm in a worse situation than most of you. I got taken for almost $2300 over a year ago. So I'm willing to take this to the courts. Anyone else with me?

    We just need to agree to an option and unitedly take a stand with it. I tried the BBB http://orlando.app.bbb.org complaint section and although all of us know Resorts Unscrupulous are con artists, but we have to LEGALLY present something that the authorities can work with. It can't be just about explaining how they are dogs for ripping honest hardworking people off. We need a strategy.
    Let us all use this form then go from there.

    I've been informed that the contracts we signed with them are not legal. They don't have valid license numbers and RIU is not bonded - which they need to be in order to sell or rent timeshares. Our illegal "contracts" are the needed proof. Has anyone tried calling them lately? I've not been able to get in touch with them. They may have gone out of business - which means getting our money back will prove difficult.

    Hello, I too feel that I was scammed by this company. I have been calling their number and sending emails and I get no response. Has anyone been able to get in contact with them? Has anyone been able to recoup their funds and if so how? I hate to say it but I am glad to know I'm not the only one. I hate that we are all in the crazy situation. Please help!!!

    Resorts International Unlimited are con artists. I signed with them in 2007 after being given their unconditional guarantee that
    my timeshares in Orlando and Las Vegas would be rented without the slightest difficulty. Bobby Oyinlade personally guaranteed it,
    during his numerous phone calls. He was extremely persistent. I was so convinced that I paid the $1300 requested.
    To date I have one rental and made the princely sum of $50 (fifty dollars). They are unreachable by phone or email.

    Well it's 2012 and Bobby Oyinlade, Chris Collins & Kristen Harmon are the ones running the scam now for RNI - Resorts International. They do not answer calls or emails. Seems the whole of RNI are in the scam -telephone operator screens calls and says all the exts are busy, she takes your contact no and says they will call you. I did not even get my 'contract". I was a fool. Bobby gives his fake license # TP4874 - each day it's a different number. Why can't the authorities do something about this?

    I reported them to Better Business Bureau to no avail. Once they got my money I never heard from them again. Boby Oyinlade is a criminal.
