Marina Grand Resorts Reviews
My husband and I attended a timeshare presentation in Mazatlan Mexico at the Marina Grand Resort In January 2015. We purchased 100 weeks and paid $14,000.00 Down. Marina Grand (through the use of APA of California) agreed to sell another timeshare we owned for $49,000.00 so that we could pay an additional $15,000 For the Marina Grand timeshare.
The closing on our current timeshare was set for February 20, 2015 at Nicollet Mall in Mpls at 3:15 p.m. As it drew close to that time, we tried to contact Marina Grand via Tony Lopez, and APA of California to get an exact location for the closing. All of a sudden, they wanted to do the closing through the mail and on the Internet. To proceed with the sale of our current timeshare, we needed to send APA $13,000.00 for income taxes.
They wanted us us to send it by bank wire. This is when we knew we had been scammed. There are no taxes on timeshares in Mexico and money sent by wire transfer cannot be traced. We tried repeatedly to get back our $14,000.00 since our contract stated, "if the closing did not take place all monies would be refunded." Tony Lopez is the head scammer and has refused to refund our money as promised.
