I got something in the mail today from a group called SBA Legal. They claim that although they are not a law firm, they provide licensed attorneys who specialize in the cancellation of misrepresented timeshare contracts and seek reimbursement of all payments made by such timeshare clients. The address listed for them on the mailer is 2200 Pennsylvania Ave NW, 4th Floor, in Washington, DC, with a telephone number 1-888-557-1173. What's most interesting is that the US Postage permit, for Standard Presorted Mail, lists as Permit 1297, out of Sacramento, California. Equally curious is that they spelled my name wrong (my last name is also listed as my first name).

Anyone have any experience with these guys? I smell scam here.

I smell scam too. Nothing on the web for SBA Legal (no website or any postings about the company) Their phone number has ZERO hits in Google. Reverse lookup for their phone number comes up with nothing. As far as the internet is concerned, THEY SIMPLY DO NOT EXIST. Who in this day and age can run a successful, and legit, business WITHOUT an internet presence?

My guess? They JUST started their scam operation and are so eager to start stealing money that they got going before they made up their fake website, fake testimonials, etc...

I would send a copy to the Attorney General in your state (hopefully Florida or one of the other aggressive states!).

I think that SBA Legal can now officially be called a SCAM. Virtual office, Voice over Internet Phone, nothing on the web. This company, I believe, intentionally took the name "SBA" Legal because they knew a search would bring in so many "Small Business Administration" links that anything related to their company would simply be lost in jumble.

I received a mailer from this same permit imprint #1297. But it was for an extended warranty for our car.....
