    Ladies and Gentlemen, we have received a purchase offer of our Occidental / Allegro timeshare, by the company AMG International (Acquisition Marketing Group International Inc.) of Norwalk, Virginia; here is also involved in, a company that will perform the escrow and closing (Escrow & Title Consulting, LLC.) of Denver, CO. We want to know if someone else has had contact with these entities and if there has been any problem with them

    Let me guess, they contacted you with great offer on your Mexican Timeshare. I gave a quick whois look at AMG and their website creation date is July 16th of this year. Pretty new for a company claiming to be in business for 20 years. Their website is pretty vague. They list that they set up "Fully Escorted Tours," but don't list what any of the perks are. The address they give in Virginia is a fountain, at least that's what Google Maps street view is.

    I would not have any contact with them.

    It's a common scam.

    Here's how it works:

    -After they have you completely hooked, they are going to charge you a bogus fee, and tell you that the fee will go into escrow until the close of the sale and then you will get it back.

    -However, the fee will really go into their foreign bank account - not escrow.

    -If they think you are really gullible, there may be several fees - we've seen people pay thousands of dollars in scammer fees.

    -Eventually, they will disappear, and steal your money, and you won't be able to contact them.

    There is no sale.
    There is no buyer.
    It's a scam.

    Denise, I already enter a complaint on FBI IC3, thank God, we never wire any money, but we don't want that anybody gets trapped with these scammers
