    1. Also look into Vacation Getaways in the Cabo marina above Sr. frogs. This scam came all the way from La Jolla Mazatlan/Punta Pacifico.

Another victim

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
next week.

Thanks for any information anyone can give us.

Do not transfer any property to them! The sale was a fraud, the contact should not be valid and is not valid in the US. They will say that you canceled and you loose all the money you put down.  Thats where I am. They have no office here. It is a virtual office all phone calls and mail are just sent down to Cabo. These People are pros at stealing. I am still fighting with Visa, to try to get my 1,000.00 down that I put on a visa card back. Your only recourse is thru the Prefeco. Its a Mexican consumer protection agency. You should not go there( Cabo Viejo) . They will not make it right.   This link is to a group trying to fight Mexican timeshare fraud. We so got taken to the cleaners. Go to Visa, there is no time limit on fraud. Send the Docs and see if you can get your money back. Do not give them (Signature) any properties…These same people just change location and business name and keep doing the same scam. Many nights I lie in bed burning up inside…their nothing but thieves…. I feel so sorry for you. My wife and I feel so stupid for letting them screw us..  Art
