Complaint / review text:
I'm a former employee of I. B. D. Marketing. This is a company that takes people's money for "marketing" timeshare property. The company claims to have "virtual tours" every Saturday at their office in Pompano Beach. There are NO tours at all. I. B. D. Marketing basically creates an ad on their website (ibd-marketing.com) for customers and that's it.
There is no department at I. B. D. Marketing that matches sellers with buyers. Basically, you have salespeople that lie to get your credit card number so they can receive a paycheck. The sales people get paid by commission, but they tell customers that they get nothing from the marketing fee.
How much does it cost to cut and paste pictures and descriptions of properties to create an ad? The "advertised hits" that customer service talks about is a number that they type in themselves! If people would go to the IBD website, they will notice that the very last ad is #100003. The newer numbers (109300) are the most current.
If they are successful in havng properties sold, why do they have ads on their website so old? The reason is because they create an ad for all of their customers, and that's it! What you see on the website, is all of the customers that have been scammed.
They have an unsatisfactory rating with the B. B. B. I contacted the B. B. B. Myself and the State Attorney's Office two weeks ago. They are being investigated.
