HAVING MAJOR PROBLEM WITH SCAMMING COMPANY, "CONTINENTIL VACATION SERVICES" ALSO OPERATING IN CONNECTION WITH DMR MARKETING, INC. OUT OF ORMON BEACH, FL AND BOCA RATON, FL.

THEY CLAIM TO BE TIME SHARE RESELLRRS BUT THEY ONLY TAKE YOUR MONEY AND WHEN YOU ATTEMPT TO CANCEL ALL AGREEMENTS WITHIN SEVEN DAYS PER THEIR CONTRACT, THEY SUDDENLY BECOME YOUR WORST NIGHTMARES. THEY TAKE YOUR CREDIT CARD NUMBER ON A RECORDED LINE AND PROCESS IT IMMEDIATELY. THE CREDIT CARD MERCHANT IS DIRECTED TO FORWARD THE FUNDS OUT OF THE COUNTRY TO THE U.K.

THEY ARE SLICK AND TRICKY AND GOT ME FOR $3,998.00 and I'M TRYING TO FIGHT THEM FOR A REFUND.

I'd report them to every blog I could find, every timeshare group that would let me post, every regulatory agency that will listen. I think they are the lowest of the low. CVS got me for $999 back in March 2010. They kept me hanging on for 7 months with ongoing details about the issues they were having with the 'buyer' for my timeshare sale. I was quite aggrevated by the delays all summer, but figured they were just idiot buyers and didn't have a clue how things should be done. It wasn't until I called in on Aug. 6 that CVS told me the buyer bailed, citing loss of income, and when I nearly fell apart at the news, the woman I was speaking with seemed genuinely sorry. They had always answered their phone, always updated me when I called, were always pleasant, seemed to be concerned that things were not going well with the sale and told me they'd continue to work on my behalf until this was done.

Last week I called for another update and things got weird. They were very formal, saying they were continuing to 'market my timeshare as per our contract', something they'd never said to me before. They denied having any information about the many, many conversations I'd had with them about the buyers during the prior 7 months, all of which I'd documented of course! I said I wanted to cancel and they got nasty, refusing my refund 'per our contract' that states my refund is only valid upon closing. I know now that my sale will never close and that's how they get away with it.

I turned them (and copies of all my notes and their slick presentation materials) over to my credit card company just last week, the day after they got nasty with me, but as stated above, usually that must be done within 60 days. Maybe that's why they kept the charade going....but 7 months seems like overkill. It's going to be hit or miss if my bank can do anything at this late date, but I am hopeful. The Florida Attorney General is my next stop....
