I'm not sure what category this question falls under...Here's the situation. My husband and I purchased a timeshare property a number of years ago and were seeking to get rid of it. We came across a company who "promised" to take the property off our hands for a fee. We paid the fee and the "Agreement" we signed indicated that from there on, we would not be responsible for any additional maintenance fees or other charges. We signed this agreement back in February 2012 and we are still the legal owners of the property. The company did pay our maintenance fee in 2013 but they did not do so in 2014. We received a notice from the timeshare company threatening legal action if we did not pay our maintenance fees. Upon contacting the company, they said they refused to pay any more money to the timeshare company due to them not following through with the transfer of the property. I told them that was all well and good but in the meantime, the timeshare company is coming after me for the maintenance fees. Long story short, I went ahead and paid the maintenance fees (approximately $1900) and am asking for my money back from the company with which I signed the agreement. As you can imagine, they are not returning my calls, emails or other efforts to contact them. I'm ready to go after them to get my money back. Do I have a case? How should I proceed? Hope this makes sense. Carol *****@******.***
