TSF Recovery/Timeshare Financial Recovery/Dana Gayoso

I worked for this sleazy outfit and Dana Gayoso is a liar, a thief and an adultress. She and her band of scam artists have been taking money from timeshare owners for two years now promising to get refunds that never come. I was paid high commissions to rob people and Dana Gayoso kept the rest of the upfront fees collected. Her office is a disgrace, there are no accurate records kept, no real taxes being paid, no refunds--EVER, convicted felons working there. Dana Gayoso herself was arrested for grand theft!! The Attorney General and the Dept of Agriculture are saps for not clamping down on her by now. In Florida you can get a renwable license to steal. Stop by here office and see for yourself.

look below to see these statements were not posted by a consumer!!!

Beware Ripoff/Scam Fee Recovery Liars

Consumer Collection Advocates Complaint by Lynchmob

Updates to the review posted by author:

Lychmob also refers to Myron banks, and any other name below saying derogatory statements about CCA,were written by myself in a friendship "lovers quarrel" if you will. The comments about Michael Ettus and all sub complaints are in fact false statements. Michael and I have known each other for many years. I recently visited the headquarters of Michael's current business, Consumer Collection Advocates Corp. and they are running a very successful and extremely honest business helping those who were scammed retrieve their monies in ways I was not aware of. Mikey is actually a good guy. We ran into a few bumps in past years, but I have now cleaned up my life, and we have made amends. I am very sorry to Michael, his staff and those potential customers who may have checked these posts and were deferred from doing business with CCA. While visiting the office, I was able to review examples from the collections department. These guys REALLY do get money back from fraudulent transactions made by fraudulent scams. I highly recommend using their firm to help you. Try them, you will not be disappointed.

Please do not put any credence to any of these libel statements as they are false. This individual is upset that we refused to hire him, and has been posting this nonsense ever since!

We follow strict compliance policies within our company. I urge any consumer reading this to do your own independent research prior to putting any stock into these claims as they are egregious, slanderous and libelous in nature. We have every intention of pursuing this legally. These defamatory comments made as an attempt to berate our company and cause negative internet exposure without just cause is being investigated.

We are fully licensed with the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, and we also hold a license with the Department of Financial Services. We perform EVERY service that is offered to our clients.

Lynch Mob we know who you are and you are hereby ordered to cease and desist to prevent any further legal action to take place against you. To any consumer that wishes to speak with me, please do not hesitate to call the office.

I am doing the research you said I should do and I want to know in what way you "pursued" these so call wrongful statements.

Thanks.

This is nothing but libel statements, again made by timeshare resale scammers, trying to give me a bad reputation! We've been open since April 2010.

Why would we still be established if we were defrauding consumers!

Please just move on with your lives and leave me alone! Our attorney will be filing charges against both of you and whoever is hosting this IP address...

@PissedConsumer521327

Again this is posted in 2012. Can you post the suits you filed so I can check the truthfulness of these statements.

#521100

I concur wholeheartedly with the fact that TSF Recovery and Dana Gayoso are dirtbags of the highest order. I know because I was the office manager there until she fired me for having too many scruples. The company is a scam and they are thieves.

Timeshare Fraud

My 92 year old mother has been defrauded of more than $30,000 by unethical people promising to sell her timeshares. She is now being constantly harassed by people promising to help her get her money back. Of course, she just has to send them more than $1,000 advance...you can guess the rest. I have been in touch with the Office of the Attorney General of Florida but they seem reluctant to take action to shut these people down. Instead, they send emails that cannot be replied to. Extremely frsutrating. Is anyone intersted in pursuing a class action suit against some of these people and shutting them down once and for all? It is difficult to imagine how much many more people have been defrauded by these people.

Timeshare Advocacy International is the leader in timeshare contract resolutions!

If you have been a victim of deceptive sales practices during your purchase or upgrade of your timeshare we have the solution. We are the only advocacy group in the U.S. that focuses on deceptive sales practices within the timeshare industry that is accredited with the BBB.

Additionally, we are the only company to win in court against the biggest timeshare company in the U.S.

Timeshare Advocacy International Wins Lawsuit against World’s Largest Resort.

In November of 2010 TAI was sued by the largest timeshare developer in the world for assisting timeshare owners out of their contracts with their resort. The charges ranged from violating the Tennessee Uniformed Secrets Act, Tennessee Consumer Rights Act, unauthorized practice of law, intentional interference with business relationships, civil conspiracy, breach of contract, unfair competition, procurement of breach of contract, and unjust enrichment. On July 19, 2012 it took a jury less than 45 minutes to deliberate and return a verdict of Not Guilty on all charges.

We are excited to finally have this decision behind us so we can now focus on one thing, and that is our clients. During the last 2 years they have been trying to do one thing and that is to shut us up and bankrupt us through the court system. We always felt that at the end of the day a jury would see that TAI is in the business to help people. If the timeshare industry would stop lying and sell their product honestly we would be out of business, said Sean Austin.

The jury’s verdict represents a victory for free speech and free enterprise, and against corporate bullying, said Austin’s attorney, Greg Oakley of DHPM PC in a press release.

Timeshare Advocacy International is headquartered in Mount Juliet, TN and currently has a staff of 19 that do nothing but consult, coach, and mentor timeshare owners who have been deceived during their purchase or upgrade of their timeshares. We specialize in helping timeshare owners not only get out of their timeshare contracts if they were lied to, but we also help them understand what happened and how they were scammed so this hopefully will not happen again!

Timeshare Financial Recovery screwed me out of money

Do your homework on this scam outfit. They have internet exposure but they are just as dirty as a *** site. DO NOT SEND THEM MONEY Read all the details of the different Google references to this company, especially that there are upfront fees that are cautioned against by all reputable reporting entities, there are not guarantees, they are a rehashed timeshare resale company and they do not get any significant money refunded. They are currently under investigation by the Attorney General and the FTC. This company operates a boiler room, not a financial assistance office. Do not be *** again.

Timeshare Financial Recovery Scammed Me For More Upfront Money

Timeshare Financial Recovery is a telemarketing company that calls timeshare owners and tells them if they paid a company to sell their timeshare and got scammed, they can get their money refunded. WRONG!! Timeshare Financial Recovery is made up of former timeshare resale scammers in a timeshare resale scam office in Hollywood, Florida. They say for a 20% upfront fee and a 20% share later, they will maybe get some money back. WRONG! They will keep the upfront fee, period. Go into their office and see. NASTY. You must send them a check, too! No credit card capabilities. Buyer Beware!

I worked for Dana Gayoso,this evil, thieving woman and Yes, we scammed everyone out of their fees. I was the top salesman and I quit because Dana Gayoso cheated ME out of money!!

:grin

There is NO recovering of money, just profit for her and her husband.

Their office is trash dump and the sales people that are left look like a bunch of guys from skid row. She should be put in jail.

#534294

There has been a refund resale scam law passed bypamela boundy just in the state of florida that states a company can not charge a fee for there service till seven days after recovering any money because of all the scams that go on by this compant tsf which has already shut down once because of the. Number of compalints against it and reopened with the name changed and a new adress!

HMMMMM intersting if it is suppose to be legit. Then whyy is it breaking the law in florida where it is absolutely against the law to ask for an up front fee! And the employess are definately old employees of the fraudulent timeshare resale company's.

How do you justify breaking the law period. This company ripped off a few different people I have talked to personaly.

#530956

I worked for Dana Gayoso at TSF Recovery until it became undeniably clear that she was a thief and a liar. Look at the only favorable posts here, they are ALL from Fort Lauderdale--when that company calls all over the country--EXCEPT Fort Lauderdale where they would be sitting ducks for a raid on her office! I would like to think the dummies at the Dept of Agriculture will not re-new her telemarketing license to steal

#528335

I have personally worked with this company and continue to work with them. They are ethical and fight for the rights of the client.

They work hard. The claims of the negative comments are unfounded.

Freedom of speech and opinion can not be stricken from the internet, but it is clear that the negative comments are not from a client, but from a person who has a personal and immaturity Issue with the company and the owner. In my opinion.

#524525

Come on Dana Gayoso, you are such an ***. The only postings here that do not expose your BS company are all sent from Ft. Lauderdale--where you nest of snakes reside.

Hmmm, I see you have avoided answering all the questions. And for the record, I was never associated with a scam timeshare operation, but even if I was, What does that have to do with the illegal actions of your company. What you are doing clearly violates federal law, whether you are aware of that or not.

I also find it quite concerning about your denial of being arrested. The evidence of your felony arrest is a matter of public record. Your mugshot does not lie.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, to charge upfront fees for your service is illegal. As a matter of fact, just requesting the money upfront is considered to be illegal according to the Federal Telemarketing Statutes. DanielG even admits to being charged an upfront fee. I really do not understand why the concept of "illegal" is so hard for DanaG to grasp, but then again, she has shown that she is quite adept at perpetrating frauds.

#321590

I really don't want to continue to feed into this, but I MUST clarify that I am not a convicted felon! I have NEVER been convicted of anything!! All of this nonsense really needs to stop!! We are a reputable, legitimate business and we get the work done! We didn't just open our doors a few months ago; we have been in business since April of 2010.

After reading a lot of these comments I can definitely say they are not being posted by any past or current clients! These posts are not valid and are nothing but libel statements!!!

Anyone that really reads these remarks should know these are being made by crooked ex timeshare scammers, which we are NOT!!!

It’s sad to say that someone would stoop this low trying to discredit our business. Honestly, everyone that brings you to this site to show you the facts, are they asking you for money? They want to charge you, lie to you, promise to recover your lost money and then defraud you! Honestly think about it, these comments really have nothing to do with the services we want to provide to you? All of the libel comments are directed against me!! Which again are NOT TRUE, I AM NOT A CONVICTED FELON!!

When the post was 1st made last year everyone can clearly see it wasn't valid!

But again we are not dealing with a regulatory agency; we are dealing with Rip off report that never removes anything that's posted on its site... Even if it’s completely false!!!

Now, what I am going to do is contact a lot of my clients and re direct them to this site, and ask them to post positive comments about the services we have provided to them.

#312623

To all that write good or wrong here are my words: This company did a great job in recovering scammed fees for me. I did pay them 20% upfront, my banks contacted me several weeks later on behalf of documentation they received from Timeshare Financial Recovery, I corraborated all facts, and I was permanently credited back almost all my money, little over $ 14.800.

Forget the two other charges they could not recover for me as they were too old to pursue. Great job Timeshare Fiancial.

And thank you again !!!!!! Daniel.
