Discount for paying off loan

  • Print

Bought a timeshare in Mexico. Scammers, Patricia and Chris, got a hold of contract information. Received a call with the pitch: "the developer says if you payoff your loan by end of week, they'll give a 20% discount. I'll send you the wire transfer instructions." Received the wire transfer instructions which looked like the money was going to a bank in Mexico, then onto a JP Morgan Chase account in Florida.

I called development up and asked about promotion and they informed me there was none, and this must be a scam. I commend the development, for 15 minutes after I called them, they sent an email out to all owners warning them of scam.

I actually have names, phone number and wire instructions of this event.
