BBB is receiving a number of customer comments reporting that Beikman Group offers to purchase timeshares at attractive prices. Some reports indicate that after appraisal and purchase agreements are completed, they are referred to Concord Title (concordtitle.com) who then requests thousands of dollars for an escrow deposit or escrow fees. At least one potential client informed us that the escrow company does not exist.
As of October 24, 2012, we have been unable to verify that any license for Title or Escrow exists for Concord Title.
On October 3, 2012, we verified that this company does not have a Department of Real Estate license, which is required of any company in the state of California soliciting buyers or sellers to timeshare interests.
The company's contact information as of October 24, 2012, indicates 223 Lathrop Way, Sacramento, CA. We could not verify the existence of the address with the United States Postal Service.
In November 2012, The Beikman Group allegedly provided a copy of a City of Sacramento Business License to a consumer. As of November 26, 2012, Better Business Bureau has been unable to verify the validity of this business license and has been unable to locate any registration with the city of Sacramento.
The Better Business Bureau recommends never wiring money to an unknown company or individual.
It is our understanding that this company does not have an up-to-date state regulatory license as generally needed for this industry. When we receive information that the company's license is current and in good standing, or it is determined that a license is not needed, our report will be updated accordingly.
