Universal Marketing Solutions / Fraudsters and cheaters

1 United States
Contact information:

In Aug and Sep of 2008, I was contacted on several occasions by a John Egan of Universal Marketing Solutions telling me he had a buyer confirmed waiting to purchase my timeshare. On 24 Sep 2008, I paid them $1125 via credit card as requested to continue with the sale of the property. I later told that a credit check on the buyers was in progress and would take about 30 days. After 30 days I contacted a Mr. Jay Dixon [protected]). He informed me that they had extended the buyer's time period three weeks.

I was even contacted by someone claiming to be from Fidelity Title and some Finance Company 'by mistake' to con me into thinking there was progress being made on the sale. Then in Nov 2008, I was contacted by Jay Dixon telling me the buyer's wanted the (3) banked weeks also so they could look at the property before the purchase. However, I would need to pay Universal Marketing Solution $897.00 for a rental contract before they could proceed. I agreed and paid them the requested amount on 19 Nov 2008.

I have since contacted them every week requesting status. They either don't answer the phone or, when they do, they tell me they have extended the buyer's timeline to secure funds another three weeks. This has happened three times. So here it is six months later and still no confirmation of a sale or even a rental. These people are absolute thieves and should be prosecuted for fraud at the highest level.
