FYI, today in the Miami Herald:

Timeshare resales run into trouble
It's hardly paradise for people selling their timeshares as complaints about resale companies are increasing.

excerpt:
"Consumer protection agencies say Newman's experience is becoming all too common. In 2009, complaints about timeshare resale companies overtook the former No. 1 complaint -- mortgage-related concerns -- reported to the Florida attorney general.

``Something needs to be done to these people,'' said Newman, 56. ``It's just a mess.''

The number of complaints in 2009 -- some 2,719 -- is more than double the number filed in 2008.

That has led Florida, along with several other states, to declare war on the timeshare resale industry. The Florida attorney general's office said it is investigating 17 companies, has sued three others and reached settlements with seven more for about $1.6 million in customer refunds. The office expects to investigate more companies this year."
