First a company named Happy Day Vacations called and claimed to have a buyer for my timeshare. They said their buyer was willing to pay X number of dollars. They emailed a \'contract\' for us to sign, which we did. Then they handed us off to the \'escrow agent\', Harry A. Ferguson, Jr, of City Group Holdings. In the contract we agreed to pay 8% commission. They want us to send them the commission in order to receive the X number of dollars paid by the purchaser.

So far, it sounds the same as above. We have a contract that I forwarded to a lawyer for review. I talked to Mayan who warned me of the scan from other customers who have been burned. I sent a message to Happy Days yesterday stating, I would not transfer any money until money was in my account with a 3 day wait period to confirm funding. I have not heard back from them.....
