Problems with this Company

----------

His Company turned for the worst! Placed transfers without the right POA (Power of Attorney) docs. Also without usage or points and only now we are stuck with HIGH MF FEES after being paid by sellers to dump their responsibility. Over 200+ Deeds over the last 2 Years, and the last 13 of 17 Had no 2012 usage after we had a contract and emails to prove it! Can I share them here??? His Boss Robert Bob Rob Regan/Reagan, I Had some cocktails with him in West Palm Beach, even he is guilty of paperwork issues and forged signitures for us in Public Records for Johnson Family Trust. More to come with facts.. They may go BK someday but the AG of Florida is looking into this right now. Also the BBB has been contacted. BE CAREFUL WITH Global Resort Transfer Scam and Fraudulent inducement...

He does not send Original Deeds to the Buyers/Or is it the mix use resellers like us? Did anybody get ORIGINAL Deeds?

Global Resort Transfer ineffective and costly to transfer timeshare
Global Resort Complaint



We bought a membership to Palace Resorts in January, 2011 based on their agreement to take ownership of our timeshare week?. Palace Resorts contracted with Global Resort Transfer to take our timeshare week at Mountainside Lodge|. The past 14 months have been a nightmare attempting to complete the transfer.. Global Resort Transfer rarely responds to emails or phone calls..

Their neglect has now resulted in my responsibility to pay 2012 maintenance fees/. They owe me $873:. They have refused to pay the fees, instead blaming Mountainside Lodge,. I've been copying member services at Palace Resorts hoping they will intervene..

Fraud in general and specifically of timeshare are the order of the day. Customers should be cautious and not be fooled by false promises about investment returns, timeshare resales or anything that sounds too good to be true.

There are good articles on how to use timeshares properly:

I am also having problems with Global Resort Transfer...they very quickly took my transfer money however then put my transaction into a pending status without informing me. After many attempts to reach them they are saying that I owe another $100 to reactivate my file and complete the transaction. AND I have been paying the maintenance fees on the property that was supposed to transfer to them months ago. They now say that I owe the maintenance fees for the rest of the year.

Has anyone made any headway with this company?

Is the company really being shut down?

A timeshare sales agreement is the contract that you get at the moment you purchase a fractional ownership. Most timeshare companies make them long and difficult to understand, so the buyer doesn’t know well what he is getting into, and the terms and conditions are especially made to benefit the resort, but not the owner.

The timeshare sales agreement gives you the right to use the resort, during a certain number of years, for a specific number of weeks. That means that the developer still owns the resort, so your interest would not be considered as real estate. Also, it is very likely that most of the verbal promises told during the presentation are not in the contract, and many of the agreements have no cancellation policy:

On this struggling economy, it’s almost impossible to have a timeshare and to be up to date with the yearly payments. Before buying a timeshare, calculate the total purchase price, including the timeshare fees and the cost of travel. Then, compare these costs with other vacation packages to the same destination where your timeshare is. Keep in mind that if you try to resell your timeshare it is very unlike that you recover the amount of money that you paid for it. http://www.timesharescam.com/

This company is a nightmare. They dont return your calls. They take no responsibility for what they have said. They offered the new owner a free week (the 2014 maintenance fee I paid) as an incentive and sent that to me in an email telling me I was responsible to pay it. So besides selling my timeshare to the company from hell and buying at the Palace I paid my 2014 fees on a time share that was sold to someone else on 12-3 an I didnt even mail my maintenance fee till December 20th. Beware of how the contract reads and how they do business. I accused them of dragging out the process which Mimi there denied. I upgraded at the Palace in March, all paperwork was complete and they had cashed my transfer check the end of July and now they say since it was not 180 days from the billed maintenance fee I am responsible. I say close them down. SCAMMING INNOCENT PEOPLE. I think the timeshare companies should be more aware of what they are promoting. Since this has happened to us twice, with the same outcome both times... I was even assured by Barry from the Palace the new company is much easier to work with and now the Palace representatives say they are doubting this as well when I called to discuss the issue with them

Funny that name "Mimi" comes up. We have had a timeshare and money tied up for almost 2 years now. Mimi is very vague in he responses and will avoid the topic at all costs. It's a scam and hope they get what's due to them. I don't know how Mimi goes home and sleeps at night.

Connie, what company are you referring to that you say is a nightmare? Is it Global Resort Transfer? I'm currently having an issue with them as well. I too accused Mimi of dragging her feet, although my words were a little less kind, I accused her of not doing her job in an email and then shortly after received an email from Laura who I guess is the superviser stating that they would never ever, ever transfer my ownership. I'm basically left in the dark as to what step to take next!

We sold a timeshare through Palace resort, as part of our membership deal with Palace in 2009. They used this company =-Global Transfers Inc! We are now received a court demand to stump 5 years worth of maintenance fees as they have not been paid, because the transfer documents were not completed properly! We live in the UK and Trusted that Palace Premier Resort would, as a reputable hotel chain, be doing the correct paperwork! Be warned!!!

NEVER DO BUSINESS WITH THIS GROUP - I bought a timeshare on Ebay in March 2014 and sent $3065 to Global Resort Transfer. They started processing the transaction and then stopped processing with no communication to me. Finally in August 2014 I contacted Global Resort Transfer and they said that the Timeshare company bought back the shares that I had won on Ebay. I said OK but I wanted to see the documentation that they resort actually bought back the shares - they would not give me any documentation. If this really did happen I do not see why they would not share this information with me. I think that something happened and they sold it to someone else. I would never do business with this group again. They did refund my money 5 months later but did not communicate with me or supply the documentation supporting their claim that the shares were bought back by the resort.

Thousands of International travelers, particularly from the US and Canada, have fallen victims of timeshare fraud while vacationing. Resort developers hire skilled salesmen to represent their timeshares as many different attractive packages, such as financial investments, deeded properties, or vacation clubs, just to increase their sales. There are good articles in how to use timeshare propertly: http://www.timesharescam.com/

I recently rented two time shares . One in Hialeah and the other in Sweetwater . I wanted to get the full experience of corrupt third world politicians and police and what better way to do that than spend time in Miami Cuban controlled towns .

Either way I rented from a co called "Two Little Indios" and it turns out they ripped me off .

I know the owners are Jose and Cherokee but I cant track them down .

Since the Miami Cuban DA is up for sale and a disaster I am at a loss.

Any advice?

The timeshare industry has been into the lion’s mouth for the last couple of years, and it has generated lots of controversy and discussions in many forums and blogs on the web. However, since we’re living an economic downturn, anyone would expect that the timeshare sales collapse, but instead of that the sales seem to be increasing… but this comes with a trap: timeshare scams are increasing too. That leads us to the question: then, why keep people investing on timeshares? http://www.timesharescam.com/
