"... I was contacted by Coastal Vacation to sell my time shares in Mexico and I signed a contract with them. They Escrow Holdings contacted me and I have been working with them and paid them transfer fees, lawyer fees, and finally insurance to cover the transfer of money to me. All a scam. They are unavailable by phone and of course no money has been given..."
The original company that contacted me was Coastal Vacation at 74 Broad St, Charleston, SC 24901. Then I got a call from Escrow Holdings at 29 W. Paces Ferry Rd. NW, Atlanta, GA,30305 and they were supposed to handle the escrow. I spoke to a Manny Zimerman many times and he seemed reputable and personable. These guys are good at what they do. They charged me a transfer fee and then asked for lawyer fees to deal with Mayan Palace who was charging me 10 maintenance fees to release the property and they supposedly got out of paying that. Then they wanted more money to cover insurance costs to wire the money to me. What a scam. I feel so foolish to have fallen for it, but I hope to prevent other people from getting in the same position.
