    I just read the investor conference call transcript for WYN.. Steve Holmes mentioned that they are still dealing with the interference from 3rd parties who are in the timeshare exit business. One of the defenses to this attack has been to establish the "Wyndham Cares" website, where owners can call in if they no longer wish to keep their timeshare. This is NOT Ovation. The timeshare does not have to be paid in full to get help or advice.

    I don't know if this site could help anybody in distress, but it seems to be a major change in Wyndham's attitude on ownership. I give them credit for that.:clap:

    Let's see how Wyndham is helping the owner:

    Distress ownership and getting it back without paying for a lawyer to foreclose on it. Wyndham WINS.
    Getting back points FASTER to resell again to a new smuck. Wyndham WINS.
    Getting less bad press on suing a family due to lost of job or a life changing disablilty. Wyndham WINS.

    Wyndham should just set up a program where 'an owner' just RENTS an amount yearly of timeshare points for 5 years .. paying the MFs per the club. And after the initial 5 years, they can RENEW the agreement for 3 year for FREE ... paying the same ratio of MFs to points held ..... everyone wins.

    It would be a club membership ... but with a finite time limit AND suit the needs of most families.

    I also assume the Wyndham cares program is designed to limit the amount of supply heading into the resale market instead of being resold as developers, as eluded to in the first reply. Probably part of the reason supply seems to be slowing down on tug and eBay.

    I'm in the process of using Wyndham Cares due to financial hardship .. IE loss of income. So far I've been transferred to the financial division, and I'm waiting for the "next" available service rep. Stay posted...
