    Global Event Specialists

    We were approached by Global Event Specialists (GES) to act as an agent to sell our timeshare property in Missouri to a business man in Mexico. They told us that Mexican business men were buying timeshare properties so that they could get a visa for the US. We were offered a very good price (twice what we paid for it). Initially they asked for a payment of $995 into an 'Escrow' account. We unfortunately paid this. Then, they asked for $5,500 to cover 'Mexican taxes'. At this point we got suspicious and hired a private investigator to check out their address in San Diego. It turns out that this is just a PO box and the phone number is not listed. Aslo GES does not have a San Diego business license. GES is clearly operating a sophisticated SCAM so BEWARE!

    On further investigation, including checking with our personal lawyer, it appears that the documents provided by Global Event Specialists are valid real estate documents. based on this assurance, we have decided to proceed with the terms of the sale. The closing date is today (17 November). I will post a further update concerning the outcome of this sale.

    There has been some delay in handling the transaction concerning the sale of our timeshare property by Global Event Specialists (GES) from the Mexican side of the transaction. I will post a notice when the sale goes through. At this point, I am satisfied that GES seems to be handling the sale in a satisfactory manner.

    no, sorry, something is wrong here. when somebody "buys" they pay. when you "sell" you get paid. mexican taxes are for mexicans to pay. this smells real bad no matter what anybody says.
