He states that he paid another upfront fee to Dead Equity Solutions to transfer the timeshare out of his name and also to get his other upfront fees refunded. However, he states that all they did was use his own credit card information to file a charge back request for the fees he had paid. When his credit card company gave him a temporary credit pending the investigation, his rep, Leandro, claimed that the temporary credit was sufficient for the company to earn its "fee". The reader believes that the chargebacks will be reversed since the original charges were from more than a year ago.
The reader states that he has filed a complaint with the Florida Attorney General for timeshare related fraud and identity theft (since they used his personal information to file the chargeback requests).
As always, please take all reader submitted scam alerts with a grain of salt and understand that the allegation of fraud does not mean that any fraud actually occurred. Upfront fee scams are one of the most commonly reported consumer frauds reported to the Florida Attorney General year after year. Never pay any type of upfront fee for any timeshare liquidation process.
If you believe that you have also been a victim of consumer fraud perpetrated by Dead Equity Solutions, please take the time to report the crime to the Florida Attorney General at http://myfloridalegal.com/timeshares
