I don't own at LaVista but I still got that notice. Nothing was mentioned of my home resort Flamingo as I recall but then I didn't pay much attention to that. Just trashed it.

Andrea at LaVista has responded to my email. She says that only two LaVista owners have been contacted, both by different parties. She said that these contacts usually come from people listing their units for sale and their contact information is available that way. She just wanted to make sure as many people as possible were aware of the scam so that no one would fall victim.

As a real estate attorney, I would indicate that some timeshares are "deeded" timeshares, which you would find on record in the Recorder's office. Other timeshares, like the one we own at Divi, are contractual timeshares, which are not recorded at the Recorder's office, and which are somewhat easier to transfer.

Nope, gave them up a long time ago. I don't trade with any trade group except internally with Flamingo.

We received this notification last week. Tossed it in the garbage but made us wonder how they got our address. I could see some falling for this scam, my father in law would:-(

Good Luck trying to sell time share on SXM. We basically wound up forfeiting our 2 weeks at the Sapphire over 3 yrs ago. The first in 2010 and 2012 after a maintenance + supplement chg of $1,000.00 sent via a virus ridden e-mail last yr. We got out in the black, it owes us nothing and traded while a gold crown RCI. Cut our losses best thing we could humanely do thanks to no consumer protection under Dutch laws in reference to t/s ownership. It has seen it's day. First bought in 1993. Different island back then. Not the St. Maarten I know anymore. Will still visit again someday
