Teachers are assaulting students at record numbers. Many of these convicted teachers are either sentenced to No Jail time or very little jail time. Even Teachers merely accused of sexual assault are retaining their positions.
Mission of the Student Victim Fund
Unfortunately, there is no legal requirement for schools or courts to help the students that were victimized. Oftentimes, students who were traumatized or victimized must hire expensive attorneys or either just settle for being a victim.
The mission of this fund is to raise funds for victims, raise awareness of this crisis, and reward students, and parents, and others, who help expose teacher predators. Students and parents should be empowered to Take Back the Classroom!
Suspicious SPM Resorts Relationship to BlueBeards Timeshares
Suspicious SPM Resorts Relationship to BlueBeards Timeshares. According to a signed **statemment (that was not signed under penalty of perjury) and provided by Paul D. Goodrich, an alleged employee of SPM Resorts, Inc., the clients of SPM Resorts, Inc. are the individual time-share associations. He states that BlueBeards's is not a client of SPM Resorts, Inc.
Timeshares, time-share associations, and the management of time-shares can be confusing to many. That's how scam time-share operatoers want to keep it. As discussed further below, when a consumer makes one statement, the time-share players resort to the tactic of blaming an entity with a confusingly similar name, or claiming that the entity was sold, or the name was changed, or in some cases, perhaps the whole person does not even exist.
How to Decipher the Relationship between SPM Resorts, Inc., BlueBeard's Castle Hilltop Villas III, Fairfield Resorts, and OthersAlthough difficult to reach, we tracked down SPM Resorts, Inc. employee Paul Goodrich and forced him to answer detailed questions in regards to the operations and management of SPM Resorts, Inc. We also directed correspondence to an attorney claiming to represent SPM Resorts, Inc. Finger-print records on postal receipts also suggest Paul Goodrich was responsible for or knew the person handling certain mailed matter regarding SPM Resorts, Inc.
We take seriously consumer complaints detailed by little persons against large companies with extreme influence. SPM Resorts, Inc DOES NOT PRINT OR POST A COMPLETE HIERARCHICAL diagram that explicity outlines the various functions and purposes of interelated groups, and time-share associations. To keep consumers confused, it is common for timeshare management companies to create confusingly similar names, and trade associations. We requested that Paul Goodrich provide to us a omplete list of fictitious DBA names associated with SPM Resorts, Inc, and its various clients, and the relation of SPM Resorts, Inc with Fairfield Resorts.
It is difficult and confusing for the typical consumer, government agencies, and others to decipher the complex web of the various groups interconnected to the development, management, and sale, and re-sale of time shares. Many of these groups have very similar names, change their names, buy out their affiliates, but retain their old name, and many are associated with several ficitious names.
Re-Direct Consumers to a Different Timeshare Entity
Most timeshare owners do not know the difference between BlueBeard's Castle Hilltop Villas III, BlueBeards's Castle Inc, BlueBeard Resort Developers. Time-share owners who complain about one entity are often told that the entity they are complaining about is either not responsible for the alleged grievance, and then instructed to somehow figure out the chess pieces on their own.
Confused consumer protection agencies, especially those in the uneducated regions of South Carolina, have not a clue about who, what, and where, and how many of these different or similar companies and departments operate. Unless the consumer is a well-connected citizen of the state, the Department of Consumer Affairs will simply not prosectute, review, or even assist the consumer in the matter.Whereas in areas on the East coast, prosecutors have skilled and educated teams from Ivy league schools that may often deal with complex issues of securities fraud, stock option fraud, etc. In South Carolina, where many time-share operators operate, it is not uncommon for persons employed by consumer protection agencies to be barely literate. In keeping with the tradition of the South, one can imagine that these same persons may be reluctant to investigate the employers of their wives, husbands, boy-friends, lovers, neighbors, and friends.
Time-Share Sells at Virgin Islands Equated to Use-Car Sales
What keeps time-share scams opertaing is the refusal of state consuer protection agencies to police deceptive practics. No matter how persuasive the facts, the South Carolina Department of Consumer Affairs is a running comedy. The Real Estate Commission and Appraisal Board, of Columbia, SC, led by Ms. Barbara Feagin, is a Flintstone drama.

Based upon the personal experience of this Publisher, from the moment you disembark from your airplane, tourists who visit the Caribbean islands of St. Thomas Virgin Islands, St. John's, St Kitts, and nearby islands are often targeted by over-zealous salespersons hawking scam time-shares. This is not to say that SPM Resorts is behind this conduct of selling time-share scams; according to unverified statements made by Paul D. Goodrch that were not signed under penalty of perjury, and that were not witnessed by NAAS DEIA agents, he claims that all SPM Management Inc does is manage various time-share properties after the sale.My visit to these islands was similar to visiting a used car lot. Instead of cars being the commodity, hard-to-sale time-shares were being hawked.
Selling Time-Shares Remains a Lucrative Scam
Selling timeshare shares can be a lucrative business and a lucrative scam. Consider an article posted by Tony on the Topix network, he claims that
To 'bait' these tourists, they are often asked to complete guest-cards to be eligible for free or reduced price excursions to the various night-spots and entertainment hubs on the islands. These cards require listing their name, mailing address, and phone number. Unbeknownst to these tourists, however, is that this information can subject them to fraudulent practices of identity-theft, and misrepresentation of their name on a real estate deed for property in the U.S. Virgin Islands that they do not own and have never seen.
Although the mechanics of the scams vary, the bottom line is that many tourists are baited into 'deals' they are not aware of until they have left the island. As for the excited tourists who really believe they have legally bought a time-share unit, it is often the case they later find out their unit either does not exist, was demolished, is owned by another person, or that the developer who claims ownership of the unit was not the legal owner after-all, and therefore had no legal right to sale something it did not own in the first place. In some cases, phony or barely legal real-estate deeds are prepared and recorded in the taxation office of the Virgin Islands.
Rarely, is there a happy and satisfied owner of time-shares.
The time-share industry is full of crooks, scams, and determined thieves whose number one objective is separating the consumer from his/her pocket book, sticking the consumer with so-called maintenance fees, and then using corrupt tactics to enforce its will upon the consumer.
*Public Service Annoucement Against SPM Resorts Inc., and the Time-Share Industry
This ia a public service announcement that details scams by time-share companies, time-share management companies, and the key players in the time-share industry in general. One of the principal time-share management companies in the U.S.A. is Southern Property Management, Inc., a/k/a/ SPM Resorts, Inc.
SPM Resorts, Inc. is based out of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Public information indicates that this company is responsible for the management of numerous time-share properties throughout the United States, as well as the U.S. Virgin Islands. When using the name SPM Resorts, Inc., this company is responsible for invoicing alleged time-share owners specific annual dues or maintenance fees that that the management company claims are "owners" of the certain time-share condominium interval units.
However, as this reports reveals, we have evidence that this company ALSO bills persons that disputes ownership. A consumer alleges that SPM Resorts manufactured an illigitimate and unilateral real-esate deed that was never authorized, or agreed to by a consumer. The consumer also claims that SPM Resorts, Inc. refused, and failed to produce an original bill of sale, time-dated, and agreed to by the consumer when requested and demanded by a consumer. Despite this lack of evidence, SPM Resorts, as alleged by the consumer to a South Carolina consumer protection agency, continues to invoice the consumer. Records indicate that the consumer refuses to pay what he consuders is a fraudulent invoice. Collection agencies recruited by SPM Resorts, Inc. have been alerted to this apparent scheme, but accept fees from SPM Resorts, Inc. to ignore the non-existence evidence of a debt falsely claimed to be owed by the consumer.
