MyResortNetwork.com is a highly trusted company. We do not make unsolicited calls or do any telemarketing to timeshare owners. If someone is calling you saying that they are MyResortNetwork.com they are scamming you. Our name has been used by scammers in the past because of our excellent reputation.
Scam 1: NEVER open an attachment from a renter that takes you to your e-mail login page.
Scammers have been targeting owners with rental ads with a trick to access your e-mail.
How the scam works:
- They say they want to rent your timeshare, and during the negotiations you receive an e-mail with a link or an attachment that takes you to a legitimate-looking e-mail login page (Google, Yahoo, Hotmail, AOL, etc.).
- You enter your login information for your account and click submit.
- The scammers capture this information and now has access to your e-mail.
- They then take control of other accounts by using the forgot password function. The password is mailed back to you but they have access to your e-mail and can see your password.
Scam 2: The person acts as though they want to rent your timeshare and then will overpay with either a counterfeit check or a stolen credit card and then tell you to forward the overpayment to a shipper - who is the scammer and there will be some story as to why it needs to be wired to them. So the scammer gets your money and runs. Then the bank will bounce the entire amount out of your account once they discover it is counterfeit.
Don't accept overpayments and don't wire money to anyone for any reason when doing business online.
