You should always check a company out before doing business with them, Although I did do business with Platinum Property Exchange and waited and waited for atleast 3 months before they sold my timeshare at Vistana Orlando for 28k. These timeshares are a waste of hard earned money and I will never buy one again.
I was just contacted by John Goldstein Las Vegas NV, they e-mailed me the business lic. dated Dec 2008 but he told me they had been in business for 4 years, and were Christian owned. He promised he could sell my (bi annual) timeshare in Cabo for $28900. I asked him how he could do that when we paid under $13000, he said they market to millionaires who want them as a business tax write off and every conversation ends with " would you like to put that on visa or MasterCard?" the fee they want is $299.00 and John calls me every day even Sundays, I keep blowing him off while I check them out. The BBB in vegas gives them a c+ rating because they don't have enough info on them. They already sound fishy enough for me not to give them my money just from what I have read here.
I listed my property through Timeshares R Us and they took my money. Then I listed my timeshare with Bronze property liquidaters and once again I was fleeced. I never wanted to list my week for sale again with anyone. Then the heavens parted and Platypus Property Exchange appeared to me.
Platypus Property Exchange got my upfront money back from Timeshares R Us with interest, they got me a million dollars from Bronze property liquidators, they made the developer refund the original sale price to me even though I purchased resale, then they sold my blue week studio in a non rated resort for more than my house cost me, they redecorated my house, gave me a makeover, and they filed my taxes and got me a big refund.
If only I was smart enough to have found them on my first post like others did..........
I read on this list that someone thought they were the same operation as ESCAPE TO PARADISE in California, which happens to one of the companies that tried to rip me off. A quick business entity search of both companies on the Nevada/California Secretary of state websites reveals that they are owned and operated by the SAME PERSON, even though they claimed to have never heard of Escape to Paradise! Beware!
