Everyone who goes to Mexico and stays at a resort gets the pitch. Buy into our beautiful resort come and stay every year. What they fail to tell you are all the little hooks they have in their contracts. One favorite is the exchange of your current timeshare. Even though it is most likely worthless, they will tell you, purchase this and we will give you x amount for it… Or exchange it for a one time fee. True they charge you a one time deed search fee then they charge you for the transfer thousands of dollars extra. Most of the time they just cancel the contacts on your timeshare they don’t want to get saddled with the yearly maintenance fees. I have bought and been treated fairly and I have been conned and ripped off for thousands. Read your contract make sure it says what you are buying. Make sure everything they say is in writing. If their lips are moving its a lie. In Mexico you have 5 days to cancel any contract…. use it……
We are still trying to get our money back. They have another hearing scheduled for May 2nd. The Cabo ripoffs just keep changing the name of the company and location. Hopefully we will get them to court. Just beware and have nothing to do with signature time shares….
This site was created to try to help victims of this fraud. We also hope to try to warn others about these con men and try to save others from being victims. We sincerely hope you will use this as a forum to share your stories. I know my wife and I were ashamed that we allow ourselves to be taken advantage of. We are very intelligent people, but these people are pros at what they do. They are nothing but liars and thieves.
Don’t ever give up, they just want to steal your money.

Yesterday, I get a call from a timeshare property transfer company. They want to transfer our timeshares to these rip-offs… I tell them no way it was a total fraud. These people lie and cheat then try to intimidate you.. Well small victory, We have wow with Visa and got our $1,000 dollars we put down back. Thank you VISA!!! Now we are out $9325.00, I sent them in a cashiers check. I wish I had put that on the Visa. We are still trying to recover the $9325 thru the Perfeco. I don’t know if we will get it back, but these Con-men are still in business. In the USA they would be in Jail cells. If you have been ripped off by these people don’t give up. Share your story, anything you share can help others..sooner or later these people will be brought to justice..
In Mach 2014 we went to the presentation at CaboViejo. We liked the property and decided t buy a partial “fractional”.
Joe, our salesman, told us the would take our Cabo Villas timeshare in as a credit and all we would have to pay would be
$15,600 for 2 weeks every year at Cabo Viejo and 4 Leisure Weeksth rough Signature Integrated Travel System anywhere in the world at a reduced rate.
So we bought into Cabo Viejo and paid them $15,600 on our Visa Credit Card and signed a certificate that we would give them our Cabo Villas Timeshare within one year (they gave us a credit of $30,000) for it. We thought we bought 2 weeks a year at Cabo Viejo and would receive 4 leisure weeks.
We got a phone call about their option to buyback after 10 years and it opened some doors that now we realize we were totally frauded.
They told us we only bought one week, every other year and 3 Leisure weeks every other year. This is not what we bought. We looked at our paperwork and it appears that it
was doctored somehow when they returned it to us after we did all the signing. We’d have to be insane to pay $46,000 for a week every other year.
Anyway, we have spoken with member services at Cabo Viejo and they’re willing to “right the wrong”. Only problem is we’ll only get one week not two weeks.
We are going to Cabo to see whoever is in charge at Cabo Viejo in the next couple of days. To try to get this worked out and we get what we bought.
Any additional information you can give us regarding your situation, it sounds like our situation except you didn’t put so much cash upfront.
I don’t know if we’have any recourse or whether our credit card company will consider it fraud or not. Once we go down
there and talk to someone in charge we hope that this all works
out in our favor. We’re talking a timeshare worth$30,000 plus our cash of $16,000.00. We can’t afford to lose $46,000 to these scammers.
Did you lose your other timeshares or were you able to stop the transaction once you found out you were scammed.
I hope to hear back from you asap as we’re headed to Cabo
Thanks for any information anyone can give us.
I am opening this website to try to warn others of the Evil men who who lie and steal as a way of life. Signature integrated travel systems, Signature travel, whatever name they go under are thieves… Our Story, On Oct 31, 2013 we went to a presentation at Cabo Viejo in Cabo San Lucas we were fed breakfast and were shown the property by our salesman Eric Scott. Then they made their pitch. We were told that this was not a timeshare but partial ownership and we would be buying 4 weeks” a year, ours to use at Cabo Viejo. We were told that the weeks we did not use we would be paid $2,000.00 per week per year. Then they show us the CDS website which would be part of the deal. We were told that they basically eliminate the middle man so the price were dirt cheap. Eric our salesman, showed us a website for all kinds of timeshares and hotel rooms at great prices 1/3 to1/2 of the usually prices. We were told that when we stayed we would have our own chef 3 days out of the week. I told them we couldn’t afford the $61,000.00 price tag. That’s when they introduce us to Remy. Remy said they would buy 3 of our timeshares for almost $50,000.00. Remy sold the deal, they were very smooth. What a deal we could unload some of our timeshares and stop paying so much in maintenance fees. We put $1,000.00 on our Visa card and signed a note that we would pay $9,0325.00 within 30 days. We left Cabo thinking we had made a good deal.. I wired them the $9325.00. They wanted us to transfer our property within one year. We did not get our membership info till Feb 12. When we did get on the web site it was totally different not the same. We did not want to believe we got scammed. But now we know, we just did not want to admit we were lied to and we felt like fools. Now when I read on the internet about how these same people have ripped off others, many others. I am getting mad. I am filing a complaint with the Mexican consumer protection bureau (Perfecto). I feel like a fool but this was a fraud, a bait and switch… I will post story’s of others who have deal with these criminals. I am going to open my own website about these people and hope that I can warn other of their activities. The same people do this then change the name of their company and location and do it again. We are starting out by asking Visa to please investigate this and to please get our ($l,000.00) money back. I know we have waited but it wasn’t until the beginning of April. That I knew we had been robbed. PS Visa send us a letter saying they were going to return our $1,000.00. Please feel free to send your story of your dealings with Eric, Kevin, Joe, Remy.. Whatever alias they are using.
