@lancec13 : could you please recommend any company / or person who will accept donation of the Manhattan Club Unit? The Manhattan Club fess $2000-2500. Thank you

Have you tried asking the MC if it will take the unit back? Try explaining your situation.

Also, try listing it for sale or, more feasibly, for giveaway. Offer to pay closing costs and the next maintenance fee for whoever takes it. Timeshare Users Group (aka "TUG"; tugbbs.com) has a Bargain Deals section where you can advertise that you want to give your timeshare away to a willing taker. RedWeek also has a Bargain Basement section.

Just be careful about some companies who offer to take it for "little" money (say, under $1200) because they are likely running what's commonly called in timeshare circles a "Viking Ship" operation which is fraught with dangers and legal implications.

the only way you can REALLY help us innocents, if to share the name of the company so we don't get scammed by them. Are you able to share the name? I just signed up a few days ago with TimeShares to Rent by Owner - I'm hoping it's not them but surely want to know if it is! THX - your story touched me.

Names of scam companies can be shared but it does little good. When these scam operations get identified or caught, they just change names.

The best way to tell if it's a scam is to look for some key components. They usually include an unexpected telemarketing call and an offer that's too good to be true. Also, if anytime they ask you to send funds to supposedly complete a deal, then it's a scam.

What is 'TimeShares to Rent by Owner's' website URL? We would have to see what their criteria is. As Lance stated if they ask for any sort of upfront fee then they're a scam.

maryw, stay far away from any time share having the word "manhattan" in its name, i e, THE MANHATTAN CLUB. this one is a fraudulent scam timeshare in litigation vs the NEW YORK STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL who has had a court order issued to THE MANHATTAN CLUB to cease all sales and promotions while litigation is taking place.

caveat emptor.................LET THE BUYER BEWARE.....BE SO AWARE THAT YOU DO NOT FALL FOR ANYTHING THAT SOUNDS TOO GOOD OR THAT THEIR SALES STAFF TELLS YOU THAT YOU MUST MAKE THE DEAL "TODAY............."

whoever you are, "I WORKED AT A TIMESHARE SCAM.....i want to tell you about it"..............you haven't told us a word about your experience (s) at said timeshare scam. tell us owners and the NYS ATTORNEY GENERAL of your timeshare scam work experience. also name the timeshare scam that your worked for, even though it might have had a name change. there's always a way to find out the former name of a company.

don't leave us hanging with incomplete information. of course, you needn't divulge your real identity, simply the scam timeshare that your worked for.

it's truly a puzzlement as to why the

...............why the UNITED STATES ATTORNEY GENERAL HASN'T LAUNCHED A VIGOROUS INVESTIGATION OF THE ENTIRE TIMESHARE INDUSTRY IN THE UNITED STATES. IT'S POCK-MARKED WITH FRAUD, SCAMS, LIES AND MANY OUTRIGHT ILLEGAL AND PUNISHABLE ACTIVITIES. THIS WIDESPREAD INDUSTRY (ALTHOUGH NOT QUITE A PONZI SCHEME) IS TANTAMOUNT TO A BERNIE MADOFF ESCAPADE, AND IT MUST BE THOROUGHLY INVESTIGATED AND REGULATED...............AND THIS ACTION MUST BEGIN IMMEDIATELY BEFORE SO MANY MORE UNSUSPECTING PURCHASERS ARE SCAMMED, DEFRAUDED AND EFFECTIVELY ROBBED IN THE GUISE OF A REAL ESTATE TRANSACTION REGARDING OWNERSHIP OF A TIMESHARE.
