Type of a scam Investment
This business offered to sell a timeshare in Mexico. They provided a contract supposedly signed by an official at Interjet airlines to buy this timeshare and showed paperwork from the airlines, Santander bank and payment guarantees.They required advance payment for commission, taxes, good faith and insurance. When we realized this was a scam(we were told this by the property, Mayan Palace, in Mexico) we tried to back out and were threatened very strongly with litigation. They were using the stolen name and real estate license of a real person in Houston, Tx,
I used identity theft as the type of scam, but it also involved bank wire transfers.
I am sending an example of what I received, although I have much more paperwork if needed.
