I am trying to help my parents sell their timeshare as they no longer use it. Has anyone heard of US Time share management from Florida? They seem legit but they want $300 up front and from everything I have read here that is a no-no. Any clues on the best way to sell?
Thanks, Becky

Here's the thing: These cretins will take your money, ask you for a power of attorney, leaving title+MF's in your name, and then do nothing for you. Its not worth what they say it is (or what you think it is). However, they may find a buyer (maybe someone with whom they're in cahoots) to whom they'll let it go (using the POA) for the grand sum of $1.

IOW, those who insist on money upfront are not legit. Do not deal with anyone who wants money upfront. Instead, you can and should sell it yourself by listing it on reputable websites (costs less than $300). Look at the "Buying, Selling, Renting" forum and read the sticky note at the top entitled "How to Sell your TS."

You are right--that's a big no-no. There is some helpful information about selling here.
