Has anyone stopped paying maintenance fees to Dikhololo?

I would like to know if anyone has stopped paying the annual maintenance fees to Dikhololo in the last couple years. I rarely have a chance to do RCI trades for my 3 weeks and would like to deed back the weeks to the resort. Unfortunately, the new management does not want to take the weeks back. Also, I had a very hard time last year trying to get them to deposit my weeks into RCI. It took 5 or 6 weeks of hounding them after I paid to get it done.

Also, does anyone know if they have the ability to report non payment of maintenance fes to a USA credit bureau? From what I have read it looks like they would have a hard time doing this.

I would be willing to give these weeks away to anyone interested?

I stopped paying, and I was no longer a member/owner. They're different. Instead of being a deed owner, you're a share holder. It's like you own stock. If you don't pay the maintenance fee, they'll just absorb your stock. I don't even think they go through any sort of foreclosure proceedings.
