However, when I visited the website for that company I did not see anything that appeared to be outright fraud- just what appears to be a very expensive online classified for timeshare! It is not illegal for a consumer to pay for an online classified, so it is simply up to the consumer to make a smart decision as to the value of that service.
One report stated Vacations Digest charges $1,299. for an online classified ad- which consumers can obtain for free on a number of respected venues and pay no more than $50. on other popular websites such as Redweek.com and MyResortNetwork.com.
The website does provide the proper disclosure which informs timeshare owners that they are ONLY paying for advertising services and that "...Vacations Digest, LLC does not provide or engage in real estate broker services. Because Vacations Digest, LLC does not provide real estate services, Vacations Digest, LLC has itself sold zero (0) timeshare Properties..."
As a general rule, consumers should never pay any type of large upfront fee to sell or rent a timeshare- and should always HANG UP when a telemarketer calls you to offer resale or rental services.
