Type of a scam Travel/Vacations
person (man) contacted by phone indicating he was interested in selling our timeshares (2) for us and named a large amount. After deciding to do this, he gave his phone number, name and address of company (?) and said to call if any questions…after talking to him several times, he finally said the paperwork was ready to be signed and would be signed on Jan. 2nd, 2018 and our checks would be mailed to us…When the number we were given was called on Jan. 5th, 2018 it was answered by the Children’s Welfare Dept.!!! The lady had no clue what I was talking about. I then called the first number given to us… it had an announcement … " the number you are calling has restrictions preventing your call"… so I want to turn this person in to BBB. I am filing this complaint for my friend who was the person scammed. She put up the money from her credit card. The bad thing about this is she has Alzheimer’s and thought this was a legal transaction… I told the person (Brian Johnson) she had Alzheimer’s and he had better not be messing her around. (She lives in Texas and I live in OK)..we are co-owners of the timeshares.
I am reporting this for my friend… my name is listed below in the information as the person scammed because she has Alzheimer’s and has no clue how to do this so I am doing it for her…
