Has anyone heard of rental company called Guest member services gmsoffers.com. I got a call from them saying if I do a getaway for 399 with II they work with them to rent it for 1600-1800. That it take ps a few months to get paper work done. That I can do up to 12 of these a year. Sounds like a scam. Has anyone done this with this company

I received a call from a different company, but same concept. They claimed that you can rent out getaways or "extra weeks" when I told them renting units received in a trade is against II's policies. I believe they are lying and doing so could result in II cancelling your membership. Sounds like a scam to me.

It's a scam. They do have a website that looks semi legit, but it has only been in existence since August 2023. You aren't allow to rent weeks obtained through Interval anway, so that solves that.

I said about that also and they said you can rent getaways. They have corporations that will rent the weeks. That they make there money by renting out week and people go on timeshare presentation and if they buy week they get a percentage

You can't rent getaways. Scammers are prone to lie.

Why would they need you if it works so well? Too good to be true.
Exactly. They would have their own people buy cheap timeshares just to get 12 getaways a year and keep the $14,400 each person they were going to gift to OP for themselves. This is so silly it is absurd.
