It's new to me at least.

So I received in the mail an official looking envelope who's return address was Resort Owners Assoc with an Orlando Address (we don't own an Orlando Resort. Clue #1). The very basic letter inside was a "courtesy notice" that for a limited time, this program may eliminate MF's for timeshare owners.

I was encouraged to call.

So now they're sending out letters to get you to call them. I don't plan on calling since it's obvious to me it's not from any HOA of a timeshare I own. I suppose this is one way to get around the DNC list and establish a "business" relationship so that they could bug the snot out of me by cranking up the phone solicitations.

If you get such a letter, I'd encourage you to run it thru the shredder rather than letting the scammer get you to call them.
