People don't like to publicly admit to being doped.

Another scam signature I just realized. In the email from DVC, it always says "Welcome home, DVC MEMBER NAME" regardless of whose name is actually on the reservation. In the forwarded reservation email I got, my name was listed in this spot. Tricky!

Thank you for that tidbit. That is something that I've never seen before!

Yup, good call. I just checked the confirmation email that was forwarded to me by another DVC member who made a reservation for me and their name is the welcome name, while my name is the one listed under guest.

I am glad you didn't lose your money. This is very scary that someone can take your DVC info and scam you.

As far as rentals, I am sure you have learned some valuable lessons. IMO, it is always best to look to active or longtime MO members for rentals or suggestions on whom to rent from. Many of us are always willing to to offer advice.

One of my "key" points in renting DVC reservations.



We have "distant" family that have like DVC stays, but do not own. We were renting them points, but lately I am point poor. Referred them to several sites, including MO. They listen and ended up renting from a long time poster and renter on MO. They paid a little more per point then some of their initial inquires, but now they have peace of mind.
