@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............."
