I own a timeshare near Cancun, Mexico that I don't really

I own a timeshare near Cancun, Mexico that I don't really want. (Surprise) I have been contacted by Liesure Life Travel, LLC of Shreveport, LA and they say they have a buyer (a Mexican corporation) who has already deposited the money in escrow with Ability Funding Group, LLC near Atlanta. This group has a A+ rating by the BBB. They say I need to pay 11% to a Mexican notario publico to start the process and the buyer will then reimburse me at closing. They say it is guaranteed because the money is already there, and their good reputation is at stake. It sounds too good to be true, so it probably is, but how do I get at the truth. I would love to sell it, but not lose $6000 instead. Can you help me?

I purchased a Tracker Bass Boat from the Bass Pros Shop, in

I purchased a Tracker Bass Boat from the Bass Pros Shop, in Manteca CA. in May of 2016, In June I notified them I was having problems with the vinyl flooring peeling loose from the sides. In July I had to finally complain to the corporate office before I finally got anyone to address my problem, within a few days they had me bring the boat in and after about a week, I contacted them and they stated they would have the boat repaired in a few days. I picked up the boat and the siding appeared to have been glued back, but I also noticed that the vinyl floor had stains on it. About 2 weeks later I discovered that the glue had come undone and the sides had started peeling again. I have been back and forth with them and the corporate office, each claiming that they are waiting for a response from the other. My latest call was today to the corporate office, and they stated that the techs are waiting for photos to be sent to them from the dealership,(Manteca Bass Pro Shop). What options would you recommend. I am totally getting frustrated with them and need to seek other avenues to get this resolved. Any help or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

I am trying to stop a predatory payday loan collector from

I am trying to stop a predatory payday loan collector from calling relatives and friends and me. After being constantly threatened with lawsuits, service, etc., I asked the collector to provide me with written documentation of what he claims I owe and he said his company does not have to abide by the Fair Debt Collection Act. I asked to speak with his attorney, what court the alleged lawsuit was filed in and invited him to come serve me, ( I really don't want this to happen as my credit is fairly good) but am frustrated with the continuous calls upsetting elderly relatives, etc. He claims the debt is a pay day loan from 2008, before they became illegal in Arizona, and I believe I paid the debt but am not certain, am researching my records. Any advice?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: ArizonaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Have been a civil litigation paralegal for 22 years so much of what this collector says doesn't sound right.

I received a call from Inside Global Services who claims

I received a call from Inside Global Services who claims that I owe a payday loan with a payday loan company called JD Marketing over six year ago. They informed me that I failed to repay a loan back in 2010 and it went into default in 2011. I questioned that and asked why did JD Marketing wait over six years to contact me and I was told numerous letters and emails was sent to me unanswered. Now I knew something was wrong right then and there. I have lived at the same address for the past 27 years, I just recently moved in 2015. I also question why haven't this shown up on my credit report, I was given that explanation that JD Marketing is giving me a chance to settle this debt. Inside Global Services is the third collection services that have called me with the same situation and with the same account number that the funds were transferred into. So I checked back with the bank I use to have an account with and it was verified that the account number that Inside Global is accusing me of receiving funds with was not me account. Now that I have this information, how do I proceed with this situation with Inside Global.
