Has anyone heard of Superior Vacations Title Company?

Thinking to bid on eBay on an item listed by a seller with zero feedback, who claims the closing will be handled by Superior Vacations. Has anyone heard of this title company?

Never heard of 'em....

With a seller with the zero feedback cited (no known track record whatsoever) I would personally insist upon selecting and using an independent closing company of my choice as buyer. Someone with no selling history at all is hardly in a position to be dictating a particular closing company. That's just nuts...

Payment of closing closts (whether by buyer, by seller or other shared mutual agreement) can be negotiable, but unilateral selection of a closing company by a eBay seller with zero feedback has far more potential for legal and financial mishap than I would personally care to take on. YMMV.

A google search shows nothing for them - I'd be very suspicious. Ask for their physical address, website, and business license.

I was looking at his eBay listing for a Royal Sands week 47 annual usage - it went for $3,000. I found them under the BBB with A- rating, and gave the guy a call at the number listed on the eBay ad. He was not very educated in the way he talked e.g. he kept saying "Ya know what I'm sayin mam" - he sounded like a rapper. However that doesn't mean they are not legit, or coming through with the sale, but for me it just did not inspire enough trust to bid on the property.

I just found on eBay that the company selling this timeshare now has a negative rating from the buyer for the sold timeshare in question.

Yeah, that was me. Shortly after the auction ended I received an email asking for payment through PayPal. I replied asking for the Royal Resorts contract number and the name of the current owner so I could verify the details before sending payment. That information would be on the sales contract for the new transfer so I wasn't asking for anything out of the ordinary.

I didn't receive any response to my first message sent through eBay, or a follow up email sent directly to the seller's email address. I did speak to somebody at the "closing company" and left a message for the seller but never received a return call. The other phone number listed in the auction never answered and the voicemail box was full.
