Resale Scam Alert

Summary: if you're called by someone claiming to be from RedWeek and saying they have a buyer for your timeshare, it's a scam. Do not send them any funds and contact us immediately at

We have become aware of a phone scam. The perpetrators are cold calling timeshare owners, claiming to be associated with and saying they have a buyer for your timeshare. They ask you to send money, claiming it's needed for some aspect of the sale (e.g., closing costs, foreign taxes, transfer fees, etc.).

The scam itself is nothing new (one example), but it's the first time we're aware of thieves impersonating RedWeek; they encourage potential victims to visit the site and read reviews of the service in order to assuage any fears. Unfortunately, those fears are justified, since RedWeek has no connection with these groups.

RedWeek is a by-owner posting service for rentals and resales. We will never make cold calls or ask for large up-front payments. We also encourage members to use a reputable, independent escrow service to hold any funds. If you think a purchase offer is "too good to be true," it probably is. Always feel free to contact us directly at with any questions or concerns.

If you believe you've been contacted by these scammers, please send any information you have to If you have sent money to one of these scammers, please alert your local law enforcement.
