    As was pointed out above, the fact that they are asking for money upfront is the biggest red flag. But what are they asking the money for (other than to line their pockets) and what are you hoping they do for you?

    purchase my two time shares for corporations, part of NAFTA. Put TS in an escrow/trust account, and upon receipt of the funds they have asked for (transfer fees, escrow fees, etc) they will provide me with the sum of cash offered, which was ALOT. They did not mention wiring money to MEXICO until after I had return the first contact, then was contacted by Cantor Financial International, who was to handle the trust lot, wire transfer to a National bank in Mexico That is when I balked. Now they are hounding me as I have stalled in returning documents, or I will owe them $8,000.00 in penalty fees

    This is one of the most well known scams. They are thieves and will try anything to extract money from you including threatening to sue for "breach of contract". Block their number and that will be the last of it.

    A Google search of the "company" reveals nothing but this TUG thread. This means that the scammers created their bogus website within the last week or so and have started cold calling potential victims. Congrats for getting cold feet and not sending any money. Unfortunately too many people end up wiring cash and that keeps the scammers coming back for more.

    You don't owe them anything - they are scammers and they are in Mexico. Tell them to take a hike and cut off communications with them. Block their emails and phone calls.

    Hi Brydonk
    Welcome to TUG. We are very happy you found us in time.
    It doesn't matter what the company's (fake) name is. These scammers change the name of the company as soon as they receive your money, and then they move on to their next victim.

    There is no buyer. They pretend that there is a buyer who wants to pay a lot of money for your timeshare. How did they even know you had a timeshare? Wouldn't it be cheaper and easier for the buyer to search the thousands of timeshares in Mexico on ebay for $1?

    Very few timeshares in Mexico have a resale value. To determine whether your does, search ebay to see if there are any completed sales at your resort.
