Complaint / review text:
On approximately the 12th of November, 2011, we were contacted by First Capital Financial, and they wanted to know if we would be interested in selling our Timeshare. We had just recently recieved the billing on our Maintainance Fees t hat were coming due.
We decided to try and sell it, and thru a few phone calls, and emails, were told that First Capital Financial had a confirmed buyer for our Timeshare. Of course, the catch, we had to send them a Certified Check in the amount of $ 2276.00 to cover the " Sellers Processing Costs.
We have been loading up their answering machines, as there is no one to answer the phones. But any communications from them are surely few and far between, especially after they had the check in their hand. We even recieved a contract, that looked very legal.
After over a month of no return phone calls, out of the blue, today we recieved yet another phone call from a person calling himself Daniel Myers, stating that he was a Loan Officer from First Capital Financial, and he informed us that our timeshare had been sold, and they were ready to send us a check for the Sale amount.
Of course, then another catch... We were told that we now have to pay a "Documental Stamp Tax" before the sale can be completed, and then we recieve our check from the sale.
He then informed us that we were to send a certified check, from Bank of America in the amount of $ 2683.16 to a Company called Direct Specialists Corporation, even giving an Account # for the check to be deposited into.
