Agreed International– related to timeshare sales in Mexico

Apr 8, 2014

The California Department of Business Oversight has been notified that Agreed International appears to be misleadingly using the name of a company that is licensed by the Department, Agreed Escrow (formerly Aftermarket Escrow) to offer escrow services.  

Agreed International is offering escrow services to consumers in connection with the sale of timeshares in Mexico with a phone number of (310) 693-4443 and website address of www.agreedinternational.com and is claiming to be Agreed Escrow. Agreed International is not licensed to conduct escrow activity by the California Department of Business Oversight. Agreed Escrow is a licensed escrow company but does not have a phone number of (310) 693-4443 and is not involved in the solicitations being made to consumers by Agreed International.

The Department advises consumers that using a licensed escrow company affords protections under state law related to disclosures, fees and protection of funds, and provides recourse should there be a dispute with the escrow company.

California consumers should contact the Department of Business Oversight to check on the licensing of companies, investments or other financial services they are considering by visiting the financial services licensee listing or calling the Department’s toll-free Consumer Services Office at (866) 275-2677.
