Timeshare task force LLC / FRAUD FRAUD FRAUD

1 FL, United States Review updated:

My mom was contacted by this company TIMESHARE TASK FORCE LLC and she was led to believe that they could help her get money back from the timeshare company that stole her money. An up front fee was charged and they never answered the phone after her credit card was charged. My mother is 89 years old and these people should be hung by the nearest tree. I have contacted the State of Florida Attorney's Generals office as well as the Dept. of Agriculture who suppossely monitors fraudulent companies such as these.

    My 87 year old mother was contacted by this ripoff company and told that for a fee she could get money returned to her numerous resale time share transactions that were perpetrated against her credit cards over the past 2 years. The company after taking the charge card info has not answered the phone or called back!!! She was charged $1200 dollars and we probably won't get it back.

    Don't do business with them

    I have contacted the Forida State Attorney General's office and the Dept of Agriculture as well. Perhaps they will repsond if enough people will complain.

    My mom is elderly and has Alzheimer's they should be hung from the nearest tree.

    BEWARE THIS IS THE SAME COMPANY THAT TOOK PEOPLE'S MONEY IN THE FIRST PLACE. THEY ARE THE SAME TELEMARKETERS THAT WERE CALLING YOU TO RESELL YOUR TIMESHARE. THATS NOW PLAYED OUT AND THEY ARE CAUGHT SO NOW THEY ARE SWITCHING THEIR GAME UP AND SCAMMING ONCE AGAIN BY DOING FEE RECOVERY. DO NOT FALL FOR IT. ALL THEY WANT IS YOUR CREDIT CARD NUMBER. IF ANYONE CALLS FROM TIMESHARE TASK FORCE OR TS LUXURY GROUP, HANG UP!!! GO TO YOUR OWN LOCAL ATTORNEY IF YOU NEED HELP GETTING YOUR MONEY BACK FROM THESE SCAMMERS OR JOIN A CLASS ACTION LAW SUIT. WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT GIVE THESE PEOPLE YOUR CREDIT CARD!

    wow, . well the second comment on here bout being the same people.. that's just slander. the first comment though is totally false.. you might be thinking of timeshare taskforce alliance, but timeshare taskforce is a very good company, when they did get my money back, unlike t.t. alliance.. it didn't get chargebacked again and taken off my card once it was put back on, once they got my money back it stayed.. and i was with no hesitation ready to give 25 percent to them, i got sucked into t.t. alliance though, and my money was put back on my card, but the credit card company disputed and was taken back off, and the company had already taken their 30 percent i believe it was, or 50 percent.. so be careful. timeshare taskforce does it right, timeshare taskforce alliance is not the one to deal with, as well as national recovery i believe.. they do the same thing.. it gets put back on your card, but then the company disputes it and it's debited off your card again, just as it originally was. and the person who made the second comment.. i did my research, which you prolly already know and are just tryin to give that company bad complaints cause you're prolly out of a job from whatever you did, prolly worked with one of the companies or still do that is scamming people still saying they have a buyer for their timeshare.. so to the rest out there.. listen people. there is nobody that is financed or has an esgro account ready. no one has cash out. the companies do not do in house financing. there are no buyers.. in face people are trying to sell their deed on ebay for one dollar and can't even do that... who wants to pay mnt fees for somethin they don't use and never will use pretty much. another good thing i did with timeshare taskforce was had them extricate me from my contract with the resort.. i still owed a little bit on it too.. but they had their people negotiate with the resort and make them realize what was going on and things, and right around two months or so.. i was finally rid of my timeshare, it didn't get sold, in fact i paid to have it extricated.. which was well worth it. i thought about how many more years would i have it and paying the mnt fees that kept going up on me anyway.. compared to what i paid to have timeshare taskforce extricate it for me... i was more then willing to do so.. so i'm one of the lucky ones, which hopefully more will follow what i did, but let these guys get you money back, at least most of it, and have them make the resort take the deed back. i'm very happy that i'm rid of it.. and no more hassels and tons of phone calls every day saying there's buyer and all the rest of the [censor] i've heard. still be careful of the other ones.. because "timeshare taskforce alliance" is the one that doesnt' work, and it seems "timeshare taskforce" is gettin all the heat... but i did business with them early in the year, and after seeing these last two comments.. i don't want any other t.s. owners like myself, falling into another scam. thanks

    I have received repeated daily phone calls from Timeshare task force, always area code 561. They never leave a message, usual sign of a scam telemarketer from Florida.

    I answered once and got this pitch about how their lawyers are going to recover my money, I am starting to hear this more and more on different timeshare forums, seems like they have found a new scam. Just like the others, he made big promises but details were quite vague once I started asking more questions.

    I doubt there is any "timeshare fraud recovery task forces" out there. Its about as legit as people who call and say they have a buy standing right here who wants your timeshare! If they were legit, then they wouldn't be hunting you down, unsolicited, to help you get your fees back.

    THANK YOU TIMESHARE TASKFORCE!!! I'm a bit embarrassed to say it but, i was $20, 000 in debt do to resale companies promising me they had a buyer for my timeshare. When in reality all they were doing was stealing my money. I felt foolish and stupid for my mistakes. The people at Timeshare Taskforce helped me clean up the mess I had created. They made me realize I was not at fault, but that I had been a victim of some despicable people. I have thus far recovered $16000 and we are working on the remaining $4000. I must say I thought the money was lost forever. When I recieved the call with the news that all was not lost and that there was help out there I was extremely relieved. Although I was a bit skeptical at first I felt like it was my only option to trust that someone was actually out there helping people. The staff has been extremely helpful and considerate of my situation. The fraud investigators and consumer rights people seemed to work magic in the recovery of the money that i had been defrauded out of. I also signed on for the extrication from my contract with the resort I own at. We seem to be making good progress with that as well. As far as the comments claiming that this company is hurting people simply can't be true. I have had an absolutely pleasant experience with them and would recommend their service to anybody who has been victimized by the timeshare scammers.

    Jason and Caroline,

    Wow, timeshare task force sure does sound great, did they ask for a credit card number upfront?

    Also, I would assume these folks are licensed attorneys, can I please have their names so i can confirm there licenses with the state bar association?

    by the way, I noticed you mentioned "consumer right people". can you please specify which consumer right agency they work for?

    Thanks!

    ROFL...JASON AND CAROLINE. YOU WORK FOR THE COMPANY. NO ONE AND I MEAN NO ONE HAD EVER BEEN SWINDLED OUT OF 15000.00 JASON. PERHAPS THAT IS HOW MUCH YOU MADE OFF OF THE SCAM IN A FEW WEEKS. YOU ARE SORRY [censor] ADDICTS THAT SWEAR THAT YOU ARE TRYING TO GET YOUR LIVES TURNED AROUND, BUT TRUTHFULLY ARE JUST WAITING FOR YOUR NEXT FIX. WHY CAN'T THE GROUP OF YOU JUST O.D. ALREADY? ESPECIALLY BRIAN MORRIS, RICKY SHEA, JENNIFER KIRK, VERA CONDEM, JESSICA CRUZ-TORRES, THOMAS FORD, JEFF FIELDS, JEFF PARRISH, NICOLE VECCHIO, RYAN BRAZEL, RALPH JOHNSON, BIG-MIKE...THE ENTIRE LOT OF YOU...JUST O.D. AND LEAVE THESE POOR PEOPLE ALONE. YOU HAVE TAKEN ENOUGH FROM THEM. THEIR MONEY AND THEIR SENSE OF SECURITY. JUST DROP DEAD. AND YEAH, THEY ARE ALL THE SAME COMPANIES, CAUSE I HAVE WORKED FOR BOTH, NO ONE CAN GET LICENSED IN FLORIDA ANYMORE (DOA FINALLY GOT SMART) SO THEY ARE CHECK ONLY OR CHECK BY PHONE - USUALLY. STAY VERY FAR AWAY FROM THESE PEOPLE AND ALWAYS CHECK THEM OUT WITH THE LOCAL POLICE DEPT AND THE LOCAL STATE ATTORNEY TO SEE IF THERE ARE PENDING COMPLAINTS.

    I have done business with this company. I received a call from a 561 area code. I usually do not answer calls from this area code because I have unfortunately learned that calls form this area code are usually a scam of some sort. I have been taken for over $50, 000 from companies that claim to have a buyer or can sell my timeshare. I spoke to a representative from this company who said they could recover my money that I was scammed out of. They did say that they would receive a 25% "recovery fee" . I thought 25% was a fair amount for money that I had given up on as a loss. I told the gentleman to call me back in a few days at a particular time. He called at the exact time I requested. I did some research on the company before I decided to go forward with them. They are set up as a LLC ( I went to SUNBIZ.org..you can go here to check on Florida Companies' status.. ) and were incorporated by an Attorney on 9/14/2009. The attorneys name is on the sunbiz.org website. http://sunbiz.org/scripts/cordet.exe?action=DETFIL&inq_doc_number=L09000088572&inq_came_from=NAMFWD&cor_web_names_seq_number=0000&names_name_ind=N&names_cor_number=&names_name_seq=&names_name_ind=&names_comp_name=TIMESHARETASKFORCE&names_filing_type= They did recover most of my money and were rather professional. No hard selling and the gentleman I spoke with was well spoken and business like. They sent me documentation that I had to sign, we spoke to my Credit card company and I got money back the same day. I can say that in my own experience, The Timeshare Taskforce is a legitimate business and do what they say they will do. Out of the 37, 500 that I am looking to get back (50000-25%+37500) I have received back to date 26, 428.33. It did take a few weeks to receive that much back, but I am glad I answered the phone that day. If The Timeshare Taskforce calls you, listen to what they have to say and make your own decisions. I am glad I did and my wife and I are going on a vacation with the monies we got back.

    Dont be fooled people. I am telling you Taskforce LLC is a FRAUD... They are in fact the same company that stole your money to begin with... I have talked with Flordia's States Attorney's Office... They are working this case very hard and are trying to shut them down...Please do not give them any of their money... If you go to their website and click the contact us button it will list an address. If you search that address you will see a "Virtual Office" which is infact a mail box.. The last time I talked to them I told them I wanted to know the physical address where the telemartketer was so that could send the local police to that location and verify that they were a lagitamate business. I was told that I would have to hold so that he could go outside and check the address. After 15 minutes on hold the phone went dead and the number has been unavailable everysinnce...

    FRAUD FRAUD FRAUD... Do not be sucked into their ploys for your money...

    As late as twenty min. ago some guy who represented him self as CHESTER VIGGIANO Head of the, Time Share Task Force, Gave me a pitch that all the Past SCAM Time Share c ompanies had been caught and arrested. He stated that he had to hurry to submit a claim for me to recover the monies I had spent to try and sell my Time share. he set an appointment to call me back and to get all the information he needed. I was very very suspicious of this guy so i played along. I gave him some correct names of companies that scammed me in the past along with some false credit card number from which I was scamed. He put me on hold to verify that he could still help me, came back and said we were all set. I them knew he was another scammer???? I told him I wasn't paying any more money to do anything with my time share. That if he wanted to send me checks for all the money I would gladly accept them!!! He said good bye and hung up!! WATCH OUT THIS SCAMIS STILL OUT THEIR AND THEY ARE AFTER THE SAME PEOPLE WHO THEY ORIGINALLY WOUNDED!!!

    My Mom (89 years old) just got ANOTHER call from this same "Chester Viggiano" that Riky talks about and I was in the room and so I asked her about him. Same pitch about his company recovering $$$$ that people have shelled out to sell their timeshares. Something about a sting operation that just took place a couple months ago and now they are going to be able to recover some of the money...yeah right, i thought.
    I then find out that my Mom has given at least 6 different companies over a 4 year period a bunch of $$$. Aaaaaahhhhh. How do these people sleep at night?
    I noticed on the multiple pages of info and contracts and even a "consummer Contract Form" to file a complaint with the Attorney Generals Office in Florida that on the contract it says that she has to pay a retainer fee of $1094 as compensation for their services...sounds like the same rip-off that got her into the mess she is in now!

    I notice tha several of the complaints/comments above say that it is a GOOD company, while others says the opposite ! Does anyone know who I can call or contact that can tell me the truth? Can you call the Attorneys Office in Florida or the Better Business bureau??????
    HELP, PLEASE

    If you look them up on www.sunbiz.org, Timeshare Taskforce and Timeshare Taskforce Alliance are both owned by Richard Shea, so it is in fact the same owner for both companies. What's worse is that he was also the owner of Creative Vacations, Inc.

    Pieces of human garbage!!!
