..."The Better Business Bureau (BBB) wants to alert consumers to a time-share resale scam operated by Legacy Closing Services, claiming to be located at 3200 West End Ave, Nashville, TN., and Accent Event Management claiming to be located at 5909 Expressway, Oklahoma City, OK. BBB files contain a serious pattern of complaint alleging consumers were duped out of thousands of dollars in a timeshare resale scam.Specifically, complaints allege consumers were contacted by Accent Event Management claiming interest in buying the consumer’s timeshare property in Mexico..."
The scam follows the same scenario where a timeshare owner receives a cold call promising a buyer for their unwanted timeshare. The timeshare owner is then contacted by a representative from the "closing company" who demands "closing fees" before the promised sale proceeds can be released. After paying the advance fee, the promised sale does not occur and the timeshare owner is unable to obtain a refund for the monies paid.
If you believe that you have been the victim of consumer fraud perpetrated by either of these companies, please take the time to report the crime to the attorneys general in your home state, in the state where the timeshare property is located, and also in the states where the "selling and closing" agents claim to be located.
