Received a solicitation from Best Day Travel aka Best Day Cancun to buy my timeshare week at what seems to be an inflated price. Has anyone heard of this company before? They aren't asking for any upfront fees at this time, but the price they are offering me is outrageous in my opinion.

has all of the red flags of being a scam...

they all need to set the hook before attempting to extract money from you.

No one will ever cold call you to give you more than anything is worth. Especially when there are hundreds of Mexican timeshares on eBay for $1 or less.

You already knew it was a scam.

I only read your title, but my response is it's a scam.

Whenever I get something like this, I tell them to hold on a minute while I buy 10 more on eBay for $1 and then offer to resell them to the clowns for half of their initial offer for mine. For some reason, they hang up and don't call back. :hysterical:

Cheers
