    Company in Bentonville, Arkansas contacted me. Any one familiar with them? Any one had specific dealings with them?

    Scam. The #1 reason is that it is a scam is that they contacted you.

    They will ask you for money at some point -- a "title search", a "refundable escrow fee", or whatever.

    When they have your money, they will disappear.

    Here's the red flag. THEY CALLED YOU! Nobody is going to call you to give you money. They can't do anything you can't do yourself. For FREE. 99.9% of these upfront fee outfits are scams. We haven't looked into the rest of them. They take your money, then what incentive do they have to do any more toward finding a new owner? There are NO MAGIC WORDS to 'get out' of a timeshare. You own it until YOU find a new owner or are able to return the deed to the resort. Many TUGgers have contacted the HOA and been shown how to deed it back. This is often the surest and cheapest way out.

    Good Luck!

    Try to your timeshare away. Read DeniseM link she provided. I have found new homes for many of my timeshares I could not use gifting them to other tuggers or lookers in the tug marketplace. There are many other places to offer it too. Instead of paying a scammer offer some incentives, pay all closing costs, pay a year of maintenance fees, even two if you need to.

    More info on Real Travel,LLC

    • LLC created a short time ago - June 2018
    • Website very vague, difficult to tell what they do although my guess is a worthless vacation club
    • Officers are Bart Bowe and Brian Scroggs
      • Both are related to The Transfer Group started in 2014 with an F rating with the BBB.
      • Brian Scroggs is related to Vacation Consulting Services, which appears to an upfront liquidation company that started in 2014. They have an F rating with the BBB along with an alert that this business has a pattern of complaints. The website is “under maintenance” and not active.
    Bottom line, any money paid to them is at risk of being lost forever.

    Here is one TUG thread about The Transfer Group - https://tugbbs.com/forums/index.php?threads/ebay-seller-thetransfergroup.252716/

    They also talked up RCI True Points, which I understand may be a scam.
    Comments?
