is clyde trails financials resale a scam
Hello, Jacustomer,The timeshare resale and rental industry is heavily riddled with fraudsters. Times are bad and far too many people are looking to give up their timeshares. It's almost impossible to unload them, except at a loss, and all kind of dishonest and outright fraudulent resale/rental agencies are cold-calling people and offering them very attractive deals. That almost always means scam. If they are telling you as well they want an up front fee, that is another big warning sign that the company may not be on the level. In a real estate transaction it is not necessary for any money to change hands before the closing. Even if they promise that they will refund it if they don't deliver, you that promise may not be worth a thing, if the company is not legitimate in the first place.So the best thing you can do for yourself is to make sure that whoever you deal with has some kind of track record in the industry other than what they say about themselves. Their site registration shows that this webiste is only 2 months old. (See whois) Its registration is private so you cannot see who is behind the company and where it is. That's a bad sign too, as most companies have no real reason to want to hide from the public it wishes to serve.However, the Better Business Bureau does give it an A- minus rating on their scale from A to F, and the company is duly registered with the Florida Secretary of state and is listed as an active corporation in Tampa Florida. I have linked you to the BBB review.So since the results seem a bit contradictory, if you want to contact another independent source that has no commercial interest in endorsing any one business over another, contact the Florida Secretary of State and inquire about ClydeTrail's business practices and history, because this is the agency to which people turn to file a formal complaint when they are ripped off by a Florida business. If there is a problem, they ought to know about it. The Federal Trade Commission has been warning consumers about timeshare resellers. They have a very helpful article where they help you ask the right questions and know when you're getting the right answers, when you are evaluating a company of this type. If you read this and familiarize yourself with what you have to know and do first before you contract with a timeshare reseller, you should be well-armed not to get hurt . (see link for article) Despite the very fine review by the BBB, the BBB has only been aware of this company for 2 months, which may not be a good enough sample. So make sure that all of your questions are answered before you contract. It may be too late afterwards.
I knew what you told me. I thought you could give me a better answer.
Hello,Sorry to only be able to confirm what you tell me you already know. I cannot invent other information. I'm limited to what's there, which isn't all that much. I see a big inconsistency between the BBB review and what I couldn't find and should have been able to. This place has almost no visible record other than what it says about itself and the BBB rating. You really do need to call the State Attorney General before you contract with this, or for that matter, with any timeshare reseller. Right now, I can neither recommend this company nor pronounce it a scam. Again, sorry that there's nothing more available. If there were, I'd have been happy to have found it for you.Best of luck, whichever way you go.
