"...The Better Business Bureau is warning timeshare owners who are trying to sell or rent their timeshares to beware of an escrow service called Premiere Escrow Services. In addition to being named in customer complaints, the business uses a fictitious address in Dallas and a phony City of Dallas license. When BBB representatives tried to go to Premiere Escrow Services at 306 N. Akard Street, Dallas, they found the address doesn’t exist. Also, the business furnished one customer with a “City of Dallas License Certificate” signed “Richard M. Daley, Mayor” -- not the mayor of Dallas, but the mayor of Chicago...."
Timeshare owners claim that they have received calls from a company called International Properties and Resorts, Inc which told them that the company had a buyer willing to pay a ridiculously high price for their timeshare week. The sellers are then told that they must wire money to the "escrow" agent for the sale, a company identified as Premier Escrow Services. After wiring money, often stated to be fake government taxes allegedly required to sell Mexican resorts.
If you have been approached by one of these companies, or feel that you have been the victim of timeshare related scams or consumer fraud- take the time to report the crime to your state attorney general and the attorney general of the state where the scam business claims to be located.
