    rci rents whatever weeks they want to. Their rule is you can't rent any weeks you obtain from them. It isn't rci calling. It is a company that wants you to pay them to rent your weeks. They don't even try to rent your weeks and they don't even get access to any of your weeks. They just say that if you send them money, they will send you more money back later. Later never comes.

    It's a scam - RCI does NOT permit members to rent any RCI products.

    Why would a company call you to rent out something they basically own?
