Total money lost $5,203
Type of a scam Travel/Vacations

Received a call that Beach Property Management has a buyer for my time share in Mexico. Said the buyer was the Modelo Group( Modelo that produces many beers in Mexico). Modelo was buying a number of timeshares at my resort the Grand Luxxe to hold conventions and take clients on vacation. I was offered a fair price for my timeshare and was told that I would have to pay a commission of 6% but I did not have to pay the commission until after I was wired the money into my bank account or send a cashiers check and it had cleared my bank. The closing was scheduled with the Santander Bank in Mexico City with Luis Antonio Macias Lemus an escrow officer at the bank. At the closing I was told that I would have to pay the Mexican government the sales taxes due the government in the amount of $5,203 and it had to be wired to the government account at the bank. I was sent letters and information showing that the taxes would have to be paid in Mexico and that I would not then have to pay any taxes for the sale in the USA. I wired the money and was then sent a receipt from the SAT which I am told is the government agency that collects taxes in Mexico. I was even sent to to the SAT web site to verify that it was the government agency. I wire transferred the taxes due in the amount of $5,203 and was told that the liquidation process would begin to transfer the sales money to me. Several days later I received a call from both Gary McCarter and Luis Lemus at the bank that they had learned that I would have to pay the state of Jalisco where the property is located in Mexico an additional $6,070 for the state taxes but I would be reimbursed this at the time of the transfer sale to me and I would receive this money back. I did not pay the additional $6,070 and told Beach Property Management that that had issued me a guarantee letter and that they would assume any liability if the sale did not go through if I paid the $5,203 in taxes which I did. Since that time I have not heard from Beach Property Management but did her from the suppose escrow officer at Santander Bank that they would pay half the money if I paid the other half and I said absolutely not. I have reported this to the local FBI office in my area. These individuals are very good at what they do and are very convincing and have the answers to all your questions so beware.

They offered to buy our timeshare from my Wife for a large figure, $38,960. They listed a buyer and an escrow person, also. The signed agreement will end in 60days. We have not responded at this time...

Explained that a Mexican company wanted my timeshare for Corp events and was offering 24k for a timeshare I paid 7k for.

I was approached by this company with an unsolicited offer to buy a timeshare I own in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. They offered me over $38,000 on a timeshare that is probably worth about $4,000 on the timeshare resell market. So the offer immediately smelled funny. I then started doing research on the company. In the meantime, I received 5-10 follow-up emails from them, asking if I had any questions and could I please sign and return the agreement.

- You can’t find the company or its website on any Google or other search. Seems odd for a company buying and selling and renting vacation properties.

o Their response when I challenged them – “We rely on referrals and word of mouth. Here is our website: www.beach-propertymanagement.com.”

o They also gave me their Washington SOS corporate number and a link to its website. They are registered since 2008 at 480 Pike St in Seattle.

- The offer is WAY over market value.

o Their response – “this is being pursued by executives at Grupo Modelo who want to use it for corporate events.”

- I asked for client references.

o Their response – due to privacy, we only share those after you sign an agreement.

- The names/principals named on the documents or on the SOS website don’t exist anywhere on LinkedIn and other searches. I assume they are actually fake names.

o Andy Rios

o Gary McCarter

- On Google Maps and with street view, I could not find the address listed on the contract and their website:

o 101 Spring St. Suite 206, Seattle, WA

o On SOS website, as mentioned above, they also list 480 Pike St., Seattle, WA

So I decided to send a friend of mine who works in downtown Seattle on a mission.

- He went to 101 Spring St. – no such address.

- Then he went to 480 Pike St. – no such address. How does the WA SOS office register companies in the State of Washington without confirming a valid USPS address that they’re registering with. Seems simple enough.

Anyway, this company is out there simply to try to defraud innocent property owners in signing over ownership of vacation properties and/or run off with broker commissions. I sent a long note to them after my friend checked the addresses, calling them out on their scam. Radio silence since then.

I would ask that you formally investigate this company, its principals, and prevent other citizens from being scammed out of property. I assume they probably target non-Washington residents who wouldn’t know better to check the addresses, etc. I would expect that at least you would void their state license so that they can’t send potential targets to your website and see that they’re listed in good standing with you.

I have received numerous emails and phone calls since 12/29/17 with a purchase offer for my time share. Thankfully, I have ignored all communications as I received similar communications in the past from another company. Now that I look on the ScamPulse.com site I see that it is a true scam, as I suspected, thanks to posts from others.

Dear Ms. W,

Please review the Purchase Offer and let us know if the offer is acceptable or if any changes are required.

Please send us a confirmation e-mail as soon as possible so that we can issue you a sales agreement after accepting the offer.

Thank you for your attention,

Sincerely,

ANDY RIOS

They sound legit, but the offer was way over the value. David Vargas is the man on the phone and he said that Companies will buy these as tax write-offs at the end of the year. The Escrow paperwork had a license # that was closed a few years back. The whole experience seemed to good to be true, and after reading the BBB reviews I found that it was a scam. Beware.
