    Hello so I just got off the phone with Resort Access Network based in Orlando, FL. The guy said they are a timeshare marketing agency that will rent out my unlimited RCI rental weeks to corporations and give me a cut of the profit. Sounded like a great deal since it seemed like free additional income. But then came the catch - I just needed to pay a low one time fee of $1399.

    Obviously seems like its too good to be true, but figured I'd run it by here in case anybody has worked these people before or heard anything about them. I'm sure I'm not the first timeshare owner they have contacted lol.

    Their website is http://resortaccessnetwork.com/

    Thanks!

    Please do not pay anything upfront for rental or resale services ever!

    You don't have unlimited RCL rental weeks and corporations don't rent timeshares for corporations.

    To boot, their website was created April 2018.

    You cannot rent out RCI or II exchanges. Only your home week. Your RCI account could get shut down. And renters could be denied access to the unit ruining their vacay.

    Google them. They are a scam.

    Just took three more minutes looking at this.

    This is an upfront fee advertising company who has to lie to get people to give them money under false pretenses. They will not rent out weeks to corporations and give you a cut of the profit,as they told you.

    I mentioned previously that there is a related website for Easy Business Travel and that their website is almost identical to Resort Access Network, right down to the “avoid scams” link. However, Resort Access Network’s link for “avoid scams” is not yet active. From the other website it states:

    “Easy Business Travel will never state that we have a buyer or renter waiting for your timeshare property, period.” as well as “We don’t have companies waiting to rent or buy”. Finally, they state “Easy Business Travel is a for sale by owner and for rent by owner marketing and advertising company.”

    This company or some variant contacted me about a year ago. They claimed that they are affiliated with HGVC which is not true. Somehow they have stolen or got a hold of contact info of HGVC owners

    Even the bogus A rating certification medallion on their site for online better business was listed as F by the BBB.

    I was just contacted by them under the name Resort Access Network. They say they can resell your getaway weeks if you pay the base price of $399 AND you must buy 2. They guarantee anywhere between 1800-2100 return for the rent, but say it can go as high as $6k. Depends on the event and availability. Glad to know ahead of time that this is likely a scam. Other than reading something here, how would one find out for sure?

    Its simple, RCI does not allow rental of getaway weeks, so there is nothing for them to rent. Its all a big smoke and mirrors sham, they set up a web site with all these phony rentals at resorts but there is no rental business.

    I received a voice mail last week from Resort Access Network but didn't know who made the call until I dialed their number. I was advised by my time share (Orange Lake in Kissimee, FL) that this industry is rife with fraudsters who get your personal information from the state of Florida because it's considered publicly available information! And then they give you the pitch that you have get away weeks from your resort or from RCI that you can rent, otherwise you risk losing them by a certain date. THOSE BENEFITS DO NOT EXIST! I spoke to representatives from Orange Lake and RCI and they confirmed this. Bottom line is, if you want to make some rental income, do it yourself, but be advised that you must book the reservation in your name and you are responsible for any damage that occurs when a third party stays in your unit.

    I won't dial any number I do not recognize without doing a reverse # look-up on a website like www.whitepages.com. If it was important, they'd leave a VM and ID themselves; otherwise, no call back.
