Amanda crawford called me numerous times to sell my timeshare at krystal cancun with them. After about the 6th call, I listed with timeshare solutions for $699. Clean title, no money owed or liens, etc. Listed about 4 months ago. She no longer works there, will not return messages I have left on her personel cell number. I have called customer service numerous times to check on the status of my sale. I have even dropped the asking price to any amount considered. Still no sale. Can there be any legit timeshare selling companies out there?
We paid $199.00 in sept of 2006 for fairfield resales to resell our fairfield timeshares. We never heard from them until 9 months had elapsed. We were off and on with them until they called in august of 2007 with the name now changed to timeshare solutions. The deal was that our timeshare would be put into a corporation buy out plan. We and 2 other couples spent another $900.00 to start the process of this sale. We have now been trying to get them by phone and all lines have been disconnected. We contacted the web site but could not find telephone numbers. If anyone else has this problem we'd like to hear from you. Does anyone have any idea how to stop these people?
Paid $300 to start the process of selling our timeshare to a corporation that buys them for company meetings. Assured us that they had enough to meet the demand of the corporation. Then sent $700 to transfer the deed. Was assured that if the sale was not completed in 9 months a full refund would be guaranteed at 100%. Have been unable to contact this scam group by phone or e-mail.
Bill Elis of Timeshare Solutions called and offered to sell my timeshare for a $99 upfront fee which was returnable if he failed to sell it within one year. An additional fee was to be paid when the timeshare sold. About three months later Bill Elis called and said the timeshare was sold to Ciba and another $425 was due to handle processing. I called in February to see why I hadn't heard anything since November and was advised by a female that everything was proceeding and the sale was to take place in March.
I called in April and found the mailbox for the toll free line was full. Calls to the local number [protected]) resulted in a message indicating the line was disconnected.
Like the rest of you, we got caught, too!!! Some minor differences in the story about the name change from fairfield resales to timeshare solutions (said wyndham made them do it). Said they had a buyer for our grand desert timeshare but need to pay half the closing costs. The only time I got a call back from them was because I threatened to make my next communication with the bbb and clark co sheriff's dept to file fraud charges. That got a return call from bob downey (one of the rudest "customer service supervisor" I have ever spoken to). It's cost us a total of $699.00 with this company. If anyone ever comes up with some helpful suggestions to get these folks out of business, let us know. Thanks.
Thanks to your complaint website and blog, I was "only" out my $99 that I paid over a year ago. The "very nice" salesperson jim bradey who later on told me to eat yourself #, comment after I told him that I was not interested. The offer was to sell my timehare to sprint and for me to pay half of the closing costs of $800. Fortunately I had read your blog. I would love to be included in a lawsuit against these ripoff artists.
This company offered to sell my timeshares for Cypress Palms in FL. They charged me $799 to list my deed...
This company contacted us Jan 2007 to sell our timeshare. We paid the $99 to them. After the 9 month contract was over we had never heard from them, so I called. Bill Elis then said I know your contract is up, but the thing is I've sold your timeshare, but need $475 for closing costs tonight to get the deal going right away. We sold your timeshare to a company named CIBA in a group lot and you will be receiving your money by the beginning of January. I called back the middle of January, as had heard nothing, and was then called back by a Bob Downey, who was yelling at me saying sometimes timeshares take 4mnths. to close, what are you worried about you'll get your money! You will get your money by the beginning of March. Called again in March only to find out he phone numbers had been disconnected! What a rip-off, we are some angry people right now looking for some answers! If anyone who is also in this same situation has any answers, please e-mail us! Thank You!

I received a call from Bill Elis of Timeshare Solutions stating they took over the Fairfield Resales company and that his company was targeting owners with VIP status. He said he had a corporation buying these timeshares for their corporate use and said it would only be a one time charge of $400.00 from me, as this corporation will pay him commission.in a gullible, trusting move, I agreed to pay the fee and he promised the sale would be closed within 6 weeks of our agreement. This was August of 2006 and then the nightmare began when there was no communication from him afterwards and when I did call, the excuses began. I was told there was a delay because one of the owners defaulted in their timeshare which set back the deal for me and the group of other owners. Then when I called in October, I was told everything was being handled by Bob as Mr. Elis had terminated his employment with the company. This guy Bob with whom I spoke to all of one time, told me to be patient because they found another owner to make up for the one that defaulted and they would be closing the deal within 2 weeks. Of course 2 weeks came and went and then I spoke with yet another representative of this company named Michelle and she said she would do follow up with Bob. Fed up, I had a letter sent from my attorney addressing the issue and the response I got back from Bill Elis (who was still there), was that I was well aware they were a marketing and advertising company, not a real estate company and the one time processing fee was to list my timeshare only, per the agreement signed. The vague agreement stated it was a for sale by owner company but not one mention that they are a marketing and advertising company only. Mr. Elis never mentioned one iota of his promises he made to seal the deal and believing his sincerity, I convinced a personal friend who had VIP status also, to call and get in on this great opportunity. He too was given the exact same lies and now I am ashamed to face this person who paid even more money than I did. I wrote email to Mr. Elis about his unscrupulous sales tactics (not that I know he even cares) and noted the company should change the name to Timeshare Solutions befitting the stench of their business conduct.
I was contacted by Timeshare Solutions by phone to advertise my timeshare for sale. I payed $99.00 for this around 2/2007. I was contacted by Bill Elis of Timeshare Solutions on 9/14/2007. He stated he had sold my timeshare to CIBA for $20160.00. He said that they would pay half the closing costs of $1600.00 and I would need to pay my half to get the deal sealed. I agreed but wanted it in writing so they emailed me a sheet to sign stating that I agreed to sell for $20160.00 and agreed to pay $800.00 for closing costs. I paid this with my Discover card. I was told by Bill Elis that in 30-45 days I would have my money. I contacted Bill Elis after this time and he said I would have my money by 11/23/2007. When that passed I called again and was given to Bob Downey. He said that everything was ok and that I would have my money by the end of December. This also passed. Once again I contacted Bob Downey and he gave me a date of 1/3/2008. Still no money, I contacted Bob Downey again on 1/2/2008 and he said that one of the people that were selling to CIBA lied on the app and they had to get one more timeshare to close the deal. He said not to worry that I would have my money in 2 weeks. I contacted CIBA on 1/31/2008 and talked to Kathryn Scott, Financial Controls Officer, for CIBA and ask about their buying timeshares for their employees to use. She stated that they have not and will not be buying timeshares and have never had contact with Timeshare Solutions. Now at this point their phone number and fax are no longer good.
