    Has anyone dealt with Bill Cani of Gold Key Development?

    He is offering to "buy" our timeshares for $1 -- which is fine, because we are attempting to give them away. As sellers, we choose the closing company, pay all closing costs and when the deal is finalized, we pay him $500. So instead of paying the next years' maintenance fees (which are $960)...
