    I am new to this.....
    Is it just me, or has anyone else posted a FREE For Sale ad on Tug and received 2 immediate enquiries, and then nothing.... until it's time to renew?? It has happened to me twice. Both times I have replied immediately with details, but no further response.
    Coincidence? Or "let us sell your timeshare scammers?" replying to my ads?

    It's normal for a new Ad to generate interest. To keep the interest going (on the Bargain Deals Forum), you can add pictures and additional info about the resort once a week or so - this will bump your Ad to the top of the page.

    It is possible to sign up for alerts when new ads are posted on TUG, so new ads may generate interest due to those alerts.

    note that ANYONE can contact you thru your ad. not just TUG members.

    it is however possible as mentioned above that some members have set up alerts to notifiy them when new ads or reviews are posted for a specific resort and they wanted more info.

    also be sure you are replying to the email address they provide in the contact message, replying directly to the notification email TUG sends will send the reply back to TUG instead =)

    just looking at your recent messages, they both look legitimate to me. one is even from a very long time ad broker who seems interested in both of your weeks.

    I would suggest checking your spam or junk folder as msn/live/hotmail emails are notorious for intercepting legitimate email vs delivering it to your inbox.

    any replies to your reply will come DIRECTLY from those individuals emails, not from TUG.
