I am interested in purchasing your timeshare. Let me know if it is still available.


#4 , or Patricia Grooms, is at it still - thankfully I am enough of a skeptic to have researched the email and name and just wrote "her" back to get a life, hopefully in prison. Although the internet provides fodder for these thieves, it also provides sources to enable people to be warned about them. There is a legitimate Patricia Grooms in Nevada/California (linkedin) - I think I will warn her her name is being used for crime.

real estate scam

I am a broker in Beaver Creek Colorado. Luckily my client forwarded her emails to me from this Patricia Groom who said she was interested in buying my his $60,000 timeshare. Would assume she would present him with what looked like a certified bank check while at the same time he would sign a Quit Claim deed to transfer the deed into her name. It would take about 10 days for the bank to figure out that the "certified check" is not valid.

Usually the check doesn't clear escrow. They aren't after real estate although maybe that's in the future. At the moment they just want to put a hot check into someone's hands to steal some cash.

Real estate theft may be in the future but it will be harder to make it stick in court. It has already been tried. There was a case in Australia.
