Rakuten Travel Review

Received a random call from "Rakuten Travel" stating that they were looking to purchase Villa Group membership to obtain a major share hold and if I was interested in selling. I played along. I was informed that I wouldn’t be out of pocket any money until I received the purchase price at which point 5% was to be given to the sales person. Since I had nothing to loose I went along to see how far it would go. The offer came, too good to be true, still leery but no money had been requested I continued. Signed the offer, then was called from their "attorneys" office (Law offices of Andrew Crocker Smith) to make sure all parties would follow through. Signed their contract after making some amendments. Instantly upon receiving the signed document I received a call again stating the money from the buyer had been secured I just needed to process documents through the transfer department. Received a call from the transfer department verifying I wanted to sell my membership and then they emailed me the transfer release forms where they requested 10% of the sale price be wired to the "resort". I questioned this since my resort had stated a $250 transfer fee, no where close to a 10% of sale price which was several thousands. This is as far as I went. Checked the ScamPulse.com site and found 2 similar claims. As the saying goes, if it is too good to be true, it probably is.

Yes it is. Based on the user review published on NO-SCAM.com, it is strongly advised to avoid Rakuten Travel Review in any dealing and transaction.
Not really. In spite of the review published here, there has been no response from Rakuten Travel Review. Lack of accountability is a major factor in determining trust.
Because unlike No-Scam.com, other websites get paid to remove negative reviews and replace them with fake positive ones.
Rakuten Travel Review is rated 1 out of 5 based on the reviews submitted by our users and is marked as POOR.
Never trust websites which offer a shady ‘advocacy package’ to businesses. Search for relevant reviews on Ripoff Report and Pissed Consumer to see more unbiased reviews.
