BCF & Associates Timeshare Closing Reseller Scam Riverdale, Georgia
29th of May, 2011 by User195605
I own a timeshare, and in the past have advertised it for sale with an online company. I began receiving calls from an Erica Baryani in early April 2011, who left several messages in regards to having a buyer for my property and that she was the Senior Closing Agent for her company and needed to reach me urgently. I returned her calls, she explained her company only handles closings between buyers and sellers in regards to time share properties. She further suggested she had buyers who wanted my time share for just over $19,000 which is unbelievable given the economy and the value of time share properties. All I had to do is wire the $700 closing closts the buyer was short, but I would be reimbursed at the closing. I asked for paperwork via email. On 4/19/2011 Erica sent a fairly lengthy legal looking document via email with all the details she described by phone. I had a lawyer review the documents, and was told buyers always pay closing closts at the closing and there is never anything upfront paid by the sellers.... I was told to ignore future correspondance, phone calls and naturally not to wire any money. This is simply a heads up for anyone receiving calls from this company or others like it, to beware of the scam.

I'm sure that you believe what your saying. But if you did't even use the company how can you feel good about yourself while trashing them? I used them for my closing and I'm very pleased. I put my $1499.00 into the escrow and received my check, paperwork and closing costs back in 12days!! I sold my Bluegreen points for $33, 600. I'm one happy camper. THANK YOU BCF ASSOCIATES!!!

Wow!! Only in America can someone post a complaint for services they didn't even utilize! I in fact did utilize BCF Associates for my closing. Everything was smooth and I received my proceeds check very quickly. It's really too bad that someone can trash a company's good name without any merit. I say Thank You BCF Associates...you did a GREAT job for me!!

I wired BCF my closing costs on June 3, 2011, so it's taken longer than the 14 days Erica said it would take. I still believe that BCF is making progress to towards the closing. At least, they return my calls and provide periodic updates. I will post another comment when/if I get my check and the paperwork. Hopefully, I will be able to provide comments similar to the above two individuals.

I've worked with 5 different companies since 2007 trying to sell my timeshare. Some of them have gone out of business after scamming and outright lying to me. So I can understand how the originator feels. Anything the has to do with "timeshare resale" should raise a red flag.

As far as I'm concerned, the jurys is still out on BCF, though. If they do as promised, I'll be happy to give them credit.

I began using BCF Associates early in June and at first, was quite concerned that it was a scam because of the above post. However I spoke with Alice Wilson on a number of occasions and, unlike the person here, did not choose to let a lawyer review the paperwork. Alice was very reassuring and pointed out that this person didn't even use the service, as some of these comments were saying. I went ahead and wired my $928 to PNC Bank and was told that I would be receiving a check by Fed Ex within 10 - 14 business days. I waited and waited and waited. I emailed Alice several times and occasionally received a response that the lawyer was reviewing the paperwork at the time. Then on July 22, after sending yet another email, I received a notice that the email was undeliverable. I also emailed her "secretary", and that was also returned. Then I tried calling her cell phone, which had been disconnected. I tried 3 times, just in case, and indeed, it had been disconnected. I don't know about any of you, but $928 was way more than I could afford to give to a scam artist at this time in my life. I really hope this keeps anyone else for falling for this scam ever again.

SCAM!!! They had called me saying there was a buyer ready to buy my timeshare and had already put a down payment. Sent me a sales agreement in microsoft word. Overly excited thinking it was real, I over saw the bad comments said about this company on this and other sites. Wired $724 into the PNC bank that was in Pennsylvania and their company was located in Riverdale by Atlanta. Jason Holden was the man who had contacted me. Talked to me and reassuring me that it was ok and people always pass it up because they cant afford the $724 at the moment or they are just too late. So I wired the money because i didnt want to miss out on this opportunity to finally sell my timeshare. He called back sayin the payment went through and said there will be a title company calling me the next week. NOPE!! No one called. I tried calling Jason back which goes straight to the machine, emailed him with no email back. All i can say is do not trust BCF Associates and do not ever EVER EVER pay an upfront fee. EVER!!

8/11/11 we were informed of the sale of our timeshare on June 8th. so far i think we have been scammed, as Alice Wilson seems to have dropped off the face of the earth and her email and phone number no longer work. i was surprised BCS still has a phone line open, however you can only seem to leave messages, no real people there??? it would be nice to hear from someone who recently has had any success with them, but then can you trust the "good" feedback mentioned above, as anyone could be writing it? it is a sad day for those honest folks out there to have scammers like this. Karma will get them in the end. any happy news let me know. BCF surprise us and show your face!!
