Alert – Potential Fraud Involving Mexico Timeshares
Evercore has identified a recent pattern of “spoofing” impersonation attempts relating to an apparent advance fee fraud scheme involving historic, private investments in Mexican vacation clubs / timeshares. Through a series of targeted and coordinated phone and email contacts, persons impersonating various financial services firms and individuals, including Evercore and its employees, appear to be applying high-pressure sales tactics to existing investors in Mexican timeshares, offering to help them liquidate (sell) such investments through the opening of various accounts, such as “Basic Liquidity Accounts,” at Evercore. Evercore does not offer such accounts or engage in such services. If you believe that you have been targeted by this scheme, please contact your local law enforcement office.
