Default Re: a new note to those renting units

Here's another version of a scam that the webmaster had posted on the CDM bulletin board last summer:

One of our members has reported what appears to be a variation on a scam widely used on sites where users buy & sell items.

You offer your timeshare for sale or rent and get a response from an interested party. The party agrees to send a payment to you but makes a "mistake", sending a check for more than the agreed amount.

They then notify you that it is ok to deposit the check and send them a check back for the overpayment.

A week or so later your bank notifies you the original check is no good but you have already sent the "change" back to them.

You will never hear from them again and you have made their day.
