Phone call received with offer to purchase our timeshare in Mexico with a confirmation of acceptance on 3/22/19. A request for funds to be wired to Mexico for a legal representative to obtain a Mexican tax identification number and was sent on 4/23/19. A tax number was assigned and received. Then a request for capital gain tax was requested to be wired to pay 32% tax in Mexico instead of in the United States and was wired on 5/7/19. On 5/16/19 we received an additional document stating that the state of Nayarit was requesting us to pay an additional state tax. Thomas Geantil Real Estate said they were working on trying to get that requested voided. Now after research, it appears this is all a scam.

I received a call from someone identifying themselves as associated with Thomas Geantil Real Estate and looking to buy my vacation contract. I told them I was interested to see the offer. They asked for my email and then sent me an offer letter and asked that we sign and send it back. It only asked for signatures, no other information at the time. I responded and let them know we were not 100% ready to sell because we plan to use it next year. They called again and said that we would have right to use whatever point we still have and that it would all be written into the contract. At that point I was enticed. Everything looked legit, I checked out their website but didn't do too much more research at that time. I asked why they were trying to acquire these contracts and they claimed that a co-owner of the resort was buying them out to gain an interest in the property. I gave them more more accurate information about how many points I have annually and the yearly fees. They said with the new information they could get a better offer. A couple days later they emailed a new offer for more money. My husband and I ended up signing the proposal (literally just a signature) and sending them proof of ownership. They then said they were going to open an escrow account and that an escrow company would be contacting us. I was also told was told via phone I would need to obtain a RFC number in order to transfer funds to me. A day or so later, a company identiying themselves as Charter Title Insurance Corporation contacted me via email with a welcome letter and trust account application. They called within an hour of the email. I told them I had no reviewed the information. At this point I was still skeptical and decided to do more research. I never responded to the email. I noticed the companies websites were unsecure. I also found a scam alert on ScamPulse.com indicating a similar situation with the same companies. At that time, I called my residence club to inform them of the details and they said it is a scam.That this is very common. I filed a scam report with my resort.

We were contacted by Thomas Geantil Real Estate unsoliticed regarding a sale of a time share in Mexico. A complaint has been filed by another party with the BBB Northwest that reflects much of our experience. An apparent escrow account was set up through Charter Title Insurance Corporation, which also appears to be questionable. PLEASE DO NOT WASTE ANY TIME WITH THESE GUYS. The business practices are not to a US standard in terms of communication frequency and content. Trust your instincts. I wish we had!
