Ultimate Vacation Network - Ultimation Vacation Network and Premier Escrow Services

Seattle, Washington 17 comments

Ultimate Vacation Network (UVN) is a timeshare scam.My experience with them has been the same as other complaints.

They promise the sale of your timeshares, but continually request monies to be paid upfront, which they tell you will be reimbursed once the timeshares are sold. They never fulfilled the agreement, provided no services, and refused to refund a portion of monies.

UVN is located in Troy Michigan, Premier Escrow Services, which apparently operates under other names is supposedly located in Florida. Contacts at UVN are Rich Nelson, Mathew Stevens, Monica Clark (who may no longer be there but was the person who always answered the phone).

The merchant in Mexico is Integra Asecores Merc (Puerto Vallatra), whose back is Banco Santander, located in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Through my credit card bank, Chase,I disputed and redisputed the charge over several months. The merchant/bank refused to reverse the charge. This is the same mode of operation that others have complained about.

Everyone needs to file a complaint with the Attorney General's of Michigan and Florida, as well as the Better Business Bureau of both states.See other comments for details.

I have learned that registering complaints does nothing to get your money back.But, it can't hurt.

The FBI, Federal Trade Commission, and other entities have sites to register complaints. If you used a credit card, you may be able to file a dispute with the bank.

There are about 4 other threads regarding Ultimate Vacactions, with a lot of information that coud be of use.Also, do not use your full name to comment on these sites.

We are supposedly selling our Grande Luxxe timeshare through Mecca Management and Liberty Escrow Services.We signed a contract after our Purchasing Agent Scott Case guaranteed they have a purchaser.

We also gave them additionally funds so this deal would complete. We were promised to receive our funds and of course we have not received anything and cannot get Scott Case at Mecca Management or Catherine Lucas and Barbara Gray at Liberty Escrow Toledo, Ohio to return our calls. There is also a Craig Popvich listed as Senior Director of Liberty Escrow.

We live in Canada and don't how to register a U.S.complaint.

I was contacted by a company call International Events Coordinators who promised to give me money for 9 weeks at my Bliss resort property.Now a company called Resort Escrow Exchange is involved telling me to wire 992.00 to a bank in Mexico.

After i wire money they will wire me a large amount of money of send a certified check to me in 3 weeks.

I also can send them the money by credit card.Anybody have any input on what I should do?

gcbtc, First, do not send any more monies.Can you provide more detail?

This may not be the same company as Ultimate (correction to Ultimation) Vacation Network (Troy Michigan), which is also operating under Luxury Resorts Resale out of Boston, MA. UVN seems to have "moved on" as their website is no longer active, nor is their tele #. There are those who have been scammed to the tune of $45,000 or more. Names, contact information (website, telephone number, address - legitimate or not) are of use.

If you charged the amount to a credit card, dispute immediately. If you have a "merchant name" or a some information as to where you sent money, that would be useful. There are also other avenues to pursue (FBI, FinCen), but they only register complaints. We are trying to catch up with some very unscrupulous characters.

Any information useful. Check the other threads of complaints against UVN (there are 3 in English). Follow "Did not return monies after deal never went thru." There is useful information there.

Also, a good summary of exactly how UVN scams can be found on www.complaintsboard.com.Most comments are on this site.

Help, we are being scammed right now, by Property Experts Management.$1,595.00.

Oscar Vilas is at it again. St. Louis, MO is where they are operating now. I have the Attorney General of MO looking into them.

Also, they are no longer at telephone no., because I reported them as scammers to their land line co.

Guys beware Luxury Resorts Resale (www.luxuryresortsresale.com). They bait you to think that you don't have to pay upfront fees and that they will sell your timeshare for a really appealing amount. The scam is that you have to wire a so-called "tax" amount to some individual in Mexico (if your timeshare was purchased there) before you can receive proceeds from the sale. In my case it was around $2500. What alerted me to it being another scam is that the timeshare resort I have stated that there are NO taxes to be paid. Plus, on top of the fact that the "tax" amount is fraudulent, if they are the agent and are handling the sale why would I have to pay upfront taxes when they could deduct from the proceeds?

Don't let these guys take your hard earned money!

Also they are like three people who use the monikers "Rich Nelson", "Julie Morgan" and "Steven Green". If you receive calls from them RUN.

In reading all your post I believe UVN has changed the name of their operation to LUXURY RESORTS RESALE.Rick Nelson is the head guy.

Instead of credit cards they are now using bank wires to get the money to Mexico.

I'm in the process of contacting the FBI.If I make any progress I will post the info

About a month ago I was scammed by Luxury Resales Resort.Rick Nelson is the main person, along with Steven Greene & Julie Morgan.

If there are others I would be interested in getting an appointment and going to the FBI office in person.If they see a face maybe they would be more willing to get involved.

Beware!!UVC is now moving on.

I was one of the ones who originally got scammed. I just received a call from a so-called company operating under the name Property Experts Marketing. It is kikely the same people running the same scam. They wanted to know if I was interested in selling some of my weeks.

I played dumb and said sure. I thing I will string them along for awhile. They are supposed to be out of Missouri. Their website is very similar to UVN's.

Very vague.

I wonder how long they have been doing this under many different name.Once fooled, twice, down right dumb.

Ultimate Vacation Network - more information that may be useful.The website that is printed on their Credit Card Authorization Form is a different website that seems to have nothing to do with UVN.

Their direct website address is ultimatevacationnet.com.The site's contact number is the same for UVN It is NOT ultimatevacationnetwork.net, whih appears to be a mix of services that may include any of the words, ulitmate, vacation,network.

I too am having the same issues with this company.

I get absolutely no response from UVN or Premuir Escrow Co.

This does indeed appear to be a major scam. I would advise all to file a dispute with their credit card companiesans a complaint with the Michigan Attorney General's Office

http://www.michigan.gov/ag.

Please post if anmyone has any other ideas or has had any resolution to their issue.

The individual I have delt with are Alex Nava, Matthew Stevens, Jennifer Donelly at Premuier Escrow.

I feel like taking a trip out to Troy Michigan and paying them a personal visit.

Thank you.

It would be interesting to know how many people have been burned by UVN and Premier Escrow.

I did pay a visit to the Troy Mi location in September (2010).Their suite number on stationary said #706 but the building at 3310 Big Beaver Rd.

was only a 5 story building.The office directory in the lobby did not have any company listed as Ultimate Vacation Network.

The perps at both locations seemed to have gone dark sometime after March 15 according to my experience.

My wife and I are now victims of Mecca Management Consultants and Liberty Escrow Services.We gave them monies to complete a timeshare transfer and they defaulted on the contract they fraudulently got us to agree to and sign.

We had so many problems with communication with them that we wondered if this was a scam. The way it appears to us it is a scam, a fraud, a total rip off. We gave them monies to satisfy the contract and what they told us we would receive back from the sale of our timeshare.

We are PISSED with them and don't know what to do.We live in Canada.

IF you paid by credit card, you should dispute the charges with the credit card company (event if the dispute deadline passed, if you're persistent you may be able to get them to reimburse you.

You can also contact the state's attorney general and file a complaint as well as the state realty board.

I did this for Mecca Management (luckily I did not sign any contract or send them any money). They're pretty slick though and lie outright about being in Omaha, NE. It's a scam.

Hey everyone, I posted a complaint on this site but also replying to the comments here as well. Luxury Resorts Resale (www.luxuryresortsresale.com) is nothing but yet another scam to pop up in the never-ending string of rip-offs! They bait you by saying that you don't have to pay upfront fees, and would only have to pay a 5% commision of the sale price. Once they have lured you in they then say that you can't receive proceeds from the sale until you wire an upfront tax amount ( $2,000 - $3,000) to some individual to Mexico.

For one thing there are no taxes you have to pay for your timeshare when selling it, and if you wire the money to their cohorts in Mexico you will never hear from them again and you not get your $$$ back. They direct you to web pages and Mexican sites/forms and try to make you think it is legitimate but don't fall for it! If they were a legitimate "selling agent" AND being taxed on the timeshare was a valid transaction why wouldn't they just take out the amount from the proceeds of the sale? Because they want you to get excited about selling your timeshare so as to steal your money by having you wire this fraudulent tax amount to Mexico.

They also claim to have been in business over 16 years, but there is no information on them whatsoever. The Better Business Bureau has them listed as C- but only because they don't have any information on the company, which is the standard rating for unknown/new companies that don't have any info....

The main point is don't wire/send/mail any money to them or to anyone in Mexico - you will not get it back!

Hope I helped someone out there before they made a regrettable decision

Luxury Resorts Resale. (Rich Nelson)

Rich Nelson is nothing but a thief and swine. He is a scam artist and needs to be in jail.

Think about this for a moment if these people are legitimate then why are they asking for

The money to be wired or charged in a foreign country (Mexico). They claimed that they are based in the USA

So then the money should be deposited in the US. The reason that they do not want that to happen is that it would

Identify them and they do not want to be indentified because their whole scheme is a fraud. They have no buyers

And all they are doing is trying to fool the timeshare owners.

They also know once the money is Mexico it is out of the US jurisdiction (at least this is what they think) but we have

Investigators looking into this whole scam in Mexico the banks are red flagged and their compliance department are on the lookout

For funds wired for this kind of transaction.

Luxury Resorts Resale would open up as another company with a different name and continue this type of scamming.

They use a phone number that is affiliated with the address they are using giving the impression that they

Are located at that address but many people are not aware that you can have a US phone number and it could ring in another country

Skype and Lojack are some of the system that they can use. They can even have a toll free number also.

THE KEY IS NOT...

Tell them that you would pay to a US Account Only.

Beside there should be no payment before closing this is their trap to get your money.

These dogs needed to be exterminated….

A letter was sent to the Office of Attorney General in Boston also the FBI, The Federal trade Commission in Washington DC 20580 and FICEN have been all been notified.

Also in Puerto Vallarta the US Consulate,PROFECO, BANAMEX Compliance and Legal Department, and the police department. This company is a total scam and rip off artist.

The number provided by BG goes to the "night security" in New York, New York, USA.They do not have an international directory.

The US office is for security transactions only. They may nave a fraud department, but I, and others, have never been get throught. You have to go the website for Banco Santardo, which is an international bank, that I believe is headquarted in Spain. Google it.

If anyone is able to find a direct contact office, it would be much appreciated. I am trying to dispute my charge through CHASE/JPMorgan who would has not been of much help. Sorry, late night. NED.

ALSO, google, Complaints Board.com. There are many others who have been/are being scammed by Ultimate Vacation Network. UVN processes credit cards through Integra Asesores Merc (Puerto Vallar), and possibly others. This organizaion is not mentioned in any of the contracts/agreements/emails/.

If you did not approve a credit charge with Integra, nor a foreign transaction, there may be hope, but you have to continue to dispute and redispute through your credit card.

Check the other other sites, there are Embassy, Attorney General, and other web sites to file complaints for Michigan, Florida, and the FTC.For ever that's worth.

Anonymous
#126256

All who feel that they have been scammed please write the Attorney General of Michigan and the state that the Escrow Service is in. The more letters written the more light would be shown on them and show their true colors.

I asked Carol Davis for a copy of a sign contract from the buyer and this is what she send.

The Buyers are entitled to confidentiality just as the Owners are, and this is covered in the corresponding contracts.

It is our policy not to put the Buyers and Owners in contact with each other, as we get paid to handle the transaction without the Owner and Buyer having to deal with each other. Also, we do not want to be cut out of a sale! That is especially true in this case, while the Owner is in Breach of Contract. Therefore, we will not send you a copy of the Buyer’s Contract, nor give you contact information for the Buyer.

Now this is what I asked her let us see what would be her reply.

Carol,

Please get in touch with the Attorney General Office they are trying to contact you and Ultimate Vacation Network to resolve this and other complaints. As you claimed that you have a buyer, please provide a sworn Affidavit from Premier Escrow Service Mr Sean Williams as to the amount that was deposited with them and the date. It must also be notarised this must be provided with documentation such as bank wire or any description showing that the funds were sent from Mexico.

We were also dupped by ultimate vacations operating as Vaction Network Solutions and dealing with Mathew Stevans as well as Diamond Escrow services. Just wondering if anyone else was contacted by them after paying their HSI dues.

I wrote to the Attorney General in Michigan and Florida this morning and I spoke to the Mexican Consulate.They would track down these 2 places in Puerto Vallarta and prosecute them once the investigation is finished.

If anyone credit cardhas been charged by any other company please provide it to this site. They process the charges in small amounts not to exceed the $10,000.00 thresholds.

Because this would raise a red flag with the US Government.Treasury Dept.

Looks like they are using more than one company in Mexico to run the credit card charges through. Yours was intergra asesories merc.puerto Vallarta mexico.

Mine was Club Vacation Deals in Puerto Vallarta. Mexico.

I intend to provide this info to the Mexican Consulate in New York for them to investigate these 2 and if anyone have a charge please provide it to this site so that I can take it too. I work not too far from them.

Also UVN and Premier would not answer your calls they have caller ID and they know that they got your money.

Ultimate Vacation Network (UVN). Modus operandi.

THIS IS A HUGE SCAM THEY ALL NEED TO BE IN PRISON I INTENDED TO SLAY THIS MULTI HEADED MONSTER.

This is how they operate.

First UVN calls you telling you that they have a buyer for your timeshare but they chose not to disclose the buyer name all they will tell you he is Mexican or some foreigner who they are not allowed to give out that info.Scam one)

Second they tell you that you needed to pay the

Mexican taxes and other charges. The buyer will reimburse you that the buy will reimburse you on closing, Sounds very good.(scam two)

Thirdly they would ask you how they would ask you how would like to settle this payment.You might want to pay by Credit Card or Check.(scam three)

If you pay by check you have a very poor chance of seeing your money but if you pay pay by credit card you stand a very good chance of getting your money providing you file a dispute within 60 days of your credit card account being charged.The credit card company has leverage and most likely would credit back your account.

They would threaten you that you breach the contract but if you read on I would explain.(Scam four)

Fourth. They would give you a closing date. Sounds good but as that date get closer they would find an excuse as the buyer has not wire in his funds as yet so closing would have to be reschedule,now time is on their side by stalling you, because there is no buyer...

They would then say that the closing is being reschedule for a new date 2 weeks more to make sure that the deal closes with no problem. Sounds good. But what they are really doing is stalling for time so the 6 weeks window would run out for your credit card to reimburse you.

When the second closing time comes around they would come up with another excuse that the Mexican Govt has not issue the tax receipt for the sales and until they get that they cannot close the deal any they are very sorry for this but hopefully it would be resolved soon. Another 2 weeks would go by as I said they are just stalling for that 6 weeks window to close on you with your credit card.In the meantime they are acting you are their best fried and they are helping you to sell tour timeshare.

(wolves in sheep clothing)

Now if you are smart by now you can see right through this.You should by this time call your credit card and file a dispute ASAP.

They would then threaten to take you to court and that you have sign a contract that did not give a closing date and by disputing the charge you are in breach of the contract.THAT IS A LOAD OF BULL)

You had fulfill your part from the very beginning and they are the ones who are stalling so that the 6 weeks window on your credit card would expire and then it would be too late to file a dispute with them.

This would not stand up in any court of law once you explain to a judge they would leave you alone or if you pay by check they would hopefully refund your money but not before they find some other person to fall for this scam.

They Would then use that person money to pay you and now that person has to go thought this vicious cycle in trying to get back their money.

This is a PONZI SCHEME and these people need to go to jail.These people is in cahoots with Premier Escrow Service in Melbourne Fla.

The people I had the unfortunate experience is Carol Davis at Ultimate Vacation Destinations in Troy Michigan.

Tel 1-248-242 5591

and Sean Williams at Premier Escrow Services In Melbourne. Fla Tel 1 321-250-1962.

They would tell you that they had a certify check in their hands now just lift the dispute.

Tell them that you are will to close and you would put new money in a neutral escrow acct not Premier. An account that they have no control over and see how quick they would run away because they had no buyer in the first place.

They would say that the buyer got another timeshare to buy and is not interested in yours anymore.

Besides no taxes and fees needed to be paid pre closing that is the ruse they use to get hold of your money.

Some people does not bother to pursue them for their money so they split it up among themselves in Troy,Michigan, Melbourne Florida and their partners in Puerto Vallarta in Mexico where the credit card charges are being processed.

All of us need to take a stand and put these people in jail so they cannot do this to hard working

American or as a matter of fact to anyone.

Write to the better business bureau and Gov General and district Attorneys in Fla and Michagan

On December 17th 2009 I received a called from Carol Davis who works for Ultimate Vacation Network, 3310 W. Big Beaver Rd, Troy, Michigan, 48084. Phone number 248-242-5591 stating that she has a buyer for my property that I owned at the Bliss Resorts.

We agreed on a price of $110,000.00,

She said that all the taxes, maintenance fees and closing fees would be reimbursed by the buyer (which she stated in an email).

The total amount of $45,272.00 was paid with 3 of my credit cards the first week in January 2010, ($992.00 Escrow fee,$14,580.00 Assignment fee,$18,700.00 which is 17% Mexican Tax,$11,000.00 Excess Income Tax which is 10% ) which be repaid by the buyer.

On Jan 7th I receive an email stating that all my funds were processed with no problem, and that closing will be Jan 20th 2010.

On 1/14/2010 I got an email from Carol Davis stating that the buyer did not make the wire transfer to Premier Escrow Services for closing on Jan 20th and that the closing has to be rescheduling for another date. I got an email saying that there was a tax issue and they are working to resolve it.

On Jan 27th I got an email stating that the tax issue is still unresolved.

On Feb 11th got email stating that closing is now for Feb 17th, and that I would be receiving a certified check from Sean Williams at Premier Escrow Services, 1819 Riverview Dr, Melbourne, Fla, 32901. Phone number 321-821-0216.

They said there is a problem and...

No check was sent and they did not inform me that I would not receive my check. I wasted a day. I am now beginning to think this is a scam.

They then promise to wire me my funds on Feb 26th. I asked Sean Williams to email a copy of the wire and called me to let me know that everything is fine. He did neither.

I was not having my doubt that I would ever see my money so on March 5th I called my credit card to dispute the chares because I think this is a fraud I have honour my part since the first week of January and here we are in March and I cannot see my funds. In the mean time I am paying interest on my credit card at 17% on $45,272.00.

On 3/09/10 I received an email from Carol Davis to with draw every dispute immediately. I told her that it would only be done if she could guarantee a closing in 2 weeks and provide me with receipts for the taxes they claimed that they paid in Mexico. (I know that they could not produce any because they cannot pay taxes until the closing)

So at present this is where we are I have email to substantiate all my information available on request.

Cuando hice el primer comentario en esta página, inmediatamente me llego un correo de Jeremy Bennet de UVN comentando que los pagos que se solicitaron eran los que estaban en el contrato y que queria terminar la "penosa situación" a la brevedad.Despues en varias ocasiones me habló Jesus Reyes para hacer el pago de los impuestos dandome la "tranquilidad" de que él era de contabilidad y el mismo haría el trámite del cheque, además de comentar de que Sandra Fong que fué el agente original ya la estaban investigando por conductas sospechosas.

Tontamente realice el pago y casualmente no me volvieron a hablar, ya no existen sus cuentas de correo y si en algún momento me logro comunicar, se corta o nunca llego a hablar *** alguien.

Es una realidad que estas personas estan bien organizadas para robar el dinero y durante varios meses insisten hasta lograr el fraude.Los depositos los hice a Premier Leisure Network, S.A de C.V aquí en México y ya he reportado a esta empresa en algunas instancias.

Well, still no money, but another call from Matthew Stevens, who by the way sounds exactly like Sean Williams from Premier Escrow services.but according to Mr.

Stevens they do not have any contact. As well, I did call my property managers and they have never heard of this company nor do they have any dealings with them. I found that very suspicious. I brought this up to Stevens and he replied the customer would do the dealings.

Well, I know that in order for them to rent out our weeks, we have to contact them or they need some sort of signed document stating whoever would be staying at the resort in our place. I wish we would have investigated more thoroughly before losing over $6,000 dollars. As well, Stevens called and was very forceful in wanting me to contact my credit card company end the dispute over the large sum of money. He said after that, he would release the cheque he had in his hands, which was apparently previously in Sean williams hands about 3 weeks previous.

Please know this is a huge scam.please contact the better business bureau for the city this so called company resides in and hopefully if enough people pull together and do this, they can be stopped.

We've had a similar negative experience with Ultimate Vacation Network (UVN).In December 2009, we were contacted by UVN and subsequently contracted with UVN to sell three weeks of our timeshare in Mexico.

We paid approximately $2700 in advance "taxes to the Mexican government" and received an alleged official document for the paid taxes. We were promised that we would receive full payment on January 13th by certified check delivered by courier service. When that did not happen, we contacted our sales consultant Carlos Diaz, who began to explain that additional taxes were due to complete the transaction. We refused and were transferred to his supervisor, a certain Matthew Stevens.

UVN continued to refuse to abide by the terms of the contract. After the expiration of the 45 day contractual window for perfomance, we contacted a local law firm who happens to share neighboring space with UVN in Troy, Michigan. An initial demand letter has been sent by the attorney to UVN.

Not sure how this saga will end...hopefully not in full civil litigation.

I left some time believing that maybe i could get my money back.but sadly I realized that i was a victim of this fraud too.

like others, once you make the payments it becomming almost imposible to communicate with them, and when they answer is always a different person telling me that they will review my case or giving me different payment dates.In my case i talk with differents persons like: Sandra Fong, Jeremy Bennet, Jaime Reyes and others.

I´ve been reporting this to different entities here in México, and i will share my case in other messages trying to stop them continue stealing people.

Well, you are all right, they are a huge fraud.they got 1000.00 US and another 4500.00 US and an unexplained 250.00US.

They Matthew Stevens, Michael Santini and Sean Williams are all in cohouts to get money (large sums) from people to line their pockets. Funny, we tried to call and cancel the funds with them but their phone was either dead, busy, or we got an answering service. My husband and I reviewed more closely the so called "contract" and they were many discrepancies..in other words this would never stand up in court. I lodged a complaint through my credit card and they have contacted Mr.

Stevens. Suddenly he called yesterday claiming to have the cheque in hand for us. Funny, we were told by Mr. Williams in January that he had the cheque in hand.

Nothing makes sense. Mr Stevens spoke with me and my husband yesterday and was very urgent that I cancel the bank discrepancy so he could send us the cheque. He was very urgent and defensive when we suggested his business to be a scam. He also claimed that Ultimate is not affiliated with Escrow, and he is not aware of the extra monies taken from the account.

These guys are big, BIG, BIG scam artists and need to be taken down.

I suggest you all contact your credit card companies and have them investigate the charges and company.As well file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau...hopefully they can get to the bottom of this scam and put them out of the business of stealing...

Shar,

I am new customer of UVN.

So I am writing this for continued due diligence.

TodayI got a call back from Mr Stevens and he said they need another $3690 to pay for the Mexican govt closing fees for the transaction.

I previously paid $2890 in other taxes on the amount they say is in escrow.

I am trying to trust them that they have what they will deliver. I spoke with the person they say is purchasing my Mayan Resort Timeshare weeks. Mr. Stevens states he will transfer the money as soon as possible. Any more thoughts or changes from your situation. I surely dont want my money taken fraudulantly etc.

thanks.
