Mr. Larry Hayden has informed the BBB of an ongoing operation targeting consumers seeking to sell their timeshare. This operation has taken on various forms. Previously, timeshare owners nationwide were being solicited via telephone by persons falsely representing themselves as being from Vacation Realty International. These callers were feigning employment with Vacation Realty International, directing consumers to the Vacation Realty International/Timeshare Resales Worldwide BBB report at www.Alltimeshare.com and subsequently collecting non-refundable upfront fees ($1500- $2100). The callers were corresponding with consumers via email sent from VacationRESALESInternational@gmail.com. As of late October, timeshare owners are now being contacted by a company purporting to be Timeshare Resales Worldwide. This company is cold calling consumers in order to elicit business from them. This company is also sending out a fraudulent contract using Timeshare Resales Worldwide’s business name, logo and website. The following contact information was provided to these timeshare owners: Phone: 770-347-7681 and 760-560-3884 Toll Free: 855-816-9497 Email: email@example.com The BBB is encouraging anyone who is contacted by a "representative" claiming affiliation with VRI, Vacation Resales International, or Timeshare Resales Worldwide to contact Mr. Larry Hayden directly via email firstname.lastname@example.org, and include copies of any paperwork received, prior to providing any form of payment to the caller. Canadian citizens are now being targeted to send money via Moneygram to the upfront fee perpetrator, specifically Occidental resort owners. The imposters are now using the name "Larry Hayden" in order to solicit money from unsuspecting consumers. Per Mr. Hayden, the scams have been discovered to originate from the Dominican Republic, and consumers should refer to the following websites to seek assistance in recovering funds: http://santodomingo.usembassy.gov/fpu-e.html http://www.fbi.gov/contact-us
