    Agree that it is suspect. I think their true business is as an upfront fee exit company. From their Mission.

    With a proven track record for sucessfull release of inventory from our clients.”

    Some observations of their website:
    • They state on their website “For more than 5 years our team of experts assures highest quality of service”. FACT - their website was created just over six months ago.
    • Their physical address is a mail drop.
    • They charge $1995 for a “trade-in”.
    • When I click”shop” all is I see is an agreement for the $1995 equity transfer agreement. If they are selling other properties, where are those?
    • Poorly designed and written website.
    • What is with their “2023” copyright at the bottom of the page?
    My guess is that one pays $1995 and finds out months later they still own the timeshare. Buyer beware.

    Seems this "Brad" and "Cabo Trade Company" are still listing on the site.

    They have for sale listings with obvious mistakes regarding number of baths and maintenance fees for a particular resort in Las Vegas.
    "Brad" couldn't answer why the mistakes were there however, he would like to offer access to, "to the fastest growing and newest timeshare platform--unlimited weeks and not more trading".

    I only checked Las Vegas listings but, my advice would be to avoid any listing with a contact number of "7034639295". :rolleyes:

    Re-reading my post and wanted to clarify that the misspelling of the word successful in their mission statement is not my misspelling but rather a copy/paste direct from their website.

    I saw a bunch of ads in Marketplace with this phrase on each. Apparently more focus on trying to get names into this new system than actually selling an existing TS. I have skipped every ad he places because this makes me very cautious. Is there something that can be done to remove him from the marketplace?

    I agree, get rid of every one of their listings.

    I dealt with them a few days ago and nothing has changed. They are a shady group.

    I responded to one of their for sale ads on TUG, paid, and the timeshare transfer is supposedly now in process. This was a very good deal. Let's see how it goes and if it actually transfers. I was not offered any "trial membership".

    they specifically said they would not sign up folks again without permission per the previous thread. if this happens again I wont issue any future warnings and will indeed remove the ads.

    please let me know if anyone else has a similar (or poor ) experience thru a marketplace ad.

    as with all ads anywhere online (including the TUG marketplace)....if you do not feel comfortable with a transaction or how the communication is going...we always suggest moving on to another ad.

    and should something be misrepresented or a dispute arise thru a marketplace ad, please email us at tug@tug2.net with information so we can look into it further.

    Hello Echino... I'll thank you share with us the result of your process with cabotradecompany.com , they're listing a timeshare that seems like a good deal with Pueblo Bonito, but have not found any reviews about their work... Hope everything goes nice with you.

    My experience with "Brad" was not the best. When I asked him about the postings from others and requested further information about the company, he wouldn't offer any help. I tried to explain that some just didn't know the company his reply was, "I don't know you either".

    Not the best way to run a business I think. :ponder:
