Complaint / review text:
This supposed investment opportunity-to own land or purchase homes/condominiums is a RIPOFF. I toured the property in May 2007- and everything seemed fine. I put down a deposit and was told it would be a few months before pricing was established and a "priority list" started. (you know the line-get in early when the deal is better). I was told the deposit was fully refundable but needed to get on the priority list.
It has now been over 17 months and I have not heard from them. Tried to e-mail a couple of times and received no respnse. Finally sent a demand for the return of the deposit. Their response was - the deposit is only refundable if they could not provide clear title to the land. Soooooo - they are saying I'm stuck with purchasing the property-at whatever price it may be-or I forfeit the deposit!
Since that time I did some checking on the charachters-Mr. Chris Canzano and Evonne Eckenroth. Seems they have been and are now in Federal litigation for Securities Fraud. So they may not be the best people you want to do business with. This is a warning to anyone looking at this development in Costa Rica! I'd like to hear from any others who may have similar expereince with this group.
