I’m posting these details for the greater good. This should be indexed on Google within 24 hours.
My mother just got an offer from RCI Financial Title. They said they have a ‘corporate buyer’ for her three timeshares. The e-mail contained a poorly formatted, pseudo-contract offering $50,000 for her timeshare. They request a “Doc stamp fee” of $3500.
The kicker is, the properties are only worth $15,000 and this is “too good to be true”.
NOTE – RCI Financial Title is NOT associated with RCI (rci.com), the timeshare exchange company. My mother called to confirm.
Details about the scam:
E-mail came from a Hotmail address – firstname.lastname@example.org
Address used in the document (below) appears to be a UPS box (I love Google Maps!). There is no company with the name “RCI Financial Title” that shows up at the address in the e-mail. I did some research and have the real company address below (based on 2010 business tax records).
It’s also odd that the name in the document (Jack Phillips) is different from the e-mail address (Phillip Harris) doesn’t match the name within the e-mail (Jack Phillips).
Financial/Title Office: 8815 Conroy-Windermere Rd. Suite 113, Orlando, Fl 32835 (407)243-7512 Jack Phillips
The company web site (www.rcifinancialtitle.com) is a cheesy, basic web site. There is no e-mail associated with the domain, and the phone number for the company doesn’t match the phone number in the e-mail.
