If I ran an exchange company, I also would love member's deposits.

I have only owned a timeshare for 2 years, and thought I was doing a great thing for our family. I am so dishearted by what I read about RCI. I have to believe it's true, because I paid my MF well over ayear in advance and requested an exchange well in advance and still nothing for Aug. 2006. Was I just another fool taken advantage of?

Did you buy to use or buy to trade? What promises do you have in writing about exchange guarantees?

The sad thing is that RCI was a great exchange company and very consumer oriented and mindful of its impact on timesharing in general before the Cendant takeover. Now it is a rogue elephant.

The best thing for timesharing would be if they rethink the splitup of Cendant and spin off RCI as a seperate company. Even better, they could clean house of the current management, and bring back RCI founder Christel deHaan as a consultant to put things right. Then they could bring up people from the ranks who understand timeshare consumers, like Bootleg, to take their places. If Bootleg or someone like him were CEO, then RCI would be a consumer friendly company again.
