This guy named Mr. Martin was calling me for months, saying that they sell timeshares face to face, the way I bought mine. I told him I listed my properties with two other timeshare resellers with not even a call back. He swore up and down that he GMAC Timeshare was different because they had buyers from companies coming in and that he could get rentals done if not the sales done almost ASAP. Of course, he and his manager stopped answering phones and Mr. Martin said he was sick and out of the office after I called so many times.
Don't waste money listing with any of these timeshare resellers. I've tried three of them and they haven't presented ANY offers. If they want money up front to LIST, tell them screw themselves.
By the way, after listing with Timeshare GMAC, I received two phone calls from other resellers. THIS IS A SCAM IN FLORIDA.

    Just a thought, we bought several timeshare from GMAC, if you really want your timeshare SOLD, you would think that you would POST positive thoughts, your property info and a link to their site. You are damaging yourself and a reputable company. Spend some time promoting your property online and link them to the gmac so they can handle the negotiations... Remember savvy shoppers like myself search for the BEST deals online and are attracted to good reviews... not complaints.. Just my 2 cents. Good luck though, it might atke some time in this economy but if it is priced right an offer will come!

    They wanted $1000 from me, up front. Scam artists. The first two comments above are so obviously placed by someone at GMAC real estate, it's embarrassing. Simple economics: if a timeshare was worth X when you bought it, and now (years later) it's worth 1/2X, and GMAC is promising to get it sold for 3X (FOR ONLY $1000 UP FRONT) you can bet the equation doesn't add up.

    This is a scam and I don't believe that they received an award. I haven't received one call for my timeshare to rent. I had 3 weeks last year and I've had one week to rent this year.

    Stay away from these con artists and put your money in the bank.

    This is definately a SCAM. I had 3 weeks to rent last year and nothing happened. I have had one week this year to rent and nothing yet. I asked for my money back and all they say is "YOU SIGNED A CONTRACT". I asked for upper Management and the Manager a Customer Service says that he is the ony one there, he has no Manager.

    Don't get involved with GMAC TIMESHARES DIVISION. BIG RIP-OFF.

    I joined GMAC Timeshare Div and it was the best thing that ever happen to me. They rent my property in the first month, that was 5 years ago they even explain me how to buy x-tra weeks and now I'm making about 9000.00 xtra each year by renting those weeks. Thank you GMAC Timeshare Div. Happy Customer from PR

    When a company presents itself as a sales organization they should follow up with actual sales. I believe that all of these "positive comments" are employees of the company trying to drown out the negative ones. This is another example of a corporate scam. Think ENRON.

    I paid to have my property listed by GMAC TimeShare Division on 7/31 after being called numerous time Chris Peck. After I paid I had to call a number of times to get the contract. I finally received a contract by email on 8/19. My name was wrong, my address was wrong, and the name of the timeshare was wrong.

    I called the supervisor, Frankie Martinez, to get a refund becausd they were obviously not marketing my timeshare. He told me I could not get a refund because the contract I received on 8/19 said I had 7 days to ask for a refund. He also told me that he had been marketing my timeshare which is impossible because he did not have the correct name for the timeshare or even my correct name on the contract.

    I WILL be filing a complaint with the BBB, the Chamber of Commerce and Ebay, which was how I paid. If there is a whistleblower TV Station in Florida I will call them too. I'm also calling an attorney.

    As far as I'm concerned THIS IS DEFINITELY A SCAM.

    You are all crazy! I don't work for GMAC and this is not a fake testimonial. I do believe in GMAC as far as marketing my timeshare goes. I paid the fee of $1599 for my three timeshares with Wyndham. I was very successful at renting because I took it upon myself to book big events coming to certain areas ie.. I booked the Daytona 500 wk for the past 2 yrs and it rented out no problem. If you have the resort booked yourself then GMAC would be the most successful at renting it. Take it upon yourself and book time at popular locations and it is a guarantee that GMAC will be able to rent it out. This year they actually partnered up with Travelocity which is another great thing. HELLO!! do you really think they would have such a great partnership if they were a scam?

    Sincerely, M. Hayden

    Us too! After many solicitations from all the resales companies we were contacted by GMAC. They talked a great game. They're in Orlando, the timeshare mecca. They go to all the events, they are the biggest in the world, they wouldn't jeopardize GMAC's name, bla bla, bla. We were finally CONvinced after many calls from one of their associates, (BTW, the price dropped each time thay called us back), so we pulled the trigger. Within 10 minutes of paying by credit card, my bank's fraud department called me to notify me of the transaction in an amount nearly $350 more than our agreed price for them to market/rent our points.
    Much to my dismay I immediately called GMAC back. They apologized and said it was an error by the person inputting our info. Yeah right. We stopped the transaction.
    The next day I received numerous calls from customer service managers and the sales director profusely apologizing and wanting to do anything to earn our business.
    After a couple of days of difficult pondering, (we really want to rent our points) I called back and restarted the deal. Well, at least they got the price right the second time.
    All of this was in late August. We had 95, 000 points to rent remaining this year, and have not received one call or offer. We did receive one insulting offer for a week in 2010, which we aren't even marketing with tem at this time.

    I had a similar experience with GMAC. I have not yet called to get my money back, for several reasons. It is somewhat comforting to know that I am not alone. Does anyone know of a FLA law intended to combat these scams? My GMAC salesman actually told me about this law, after I told him about another company (REM) that had taken $1300 from me last year.

    Yes, so I see there are many people who agree.
    By the way, those people who disagree and say that GMAC Timeshares Division has helped them, WHAT ARE YOU DOING LOOKING AT THE COMPLAINTS BOARD?
    Every time I call GMAC Timeshares and ask them what's going on, I get the same crap anser.

    If anyone is still not sure what to do when contacted by GMAC Timeshares Division in regards to having them resell your timeshare, you need a smack.
    DO NOT DEAL WITH THEM.

    Budda52307, as a person who has an autistic son, I really resent the use of the word "retarted."

    By the way, I think your comments would hold more weight if you checked your spelling and your word usage... seems like you're not educated.

    NEVER PAY UP FRONT FRONT FOR ANYONE TO RENT YOUR PROPERTY! No matter how good the sales scam is - you don't need to!

    A legit rental company or a legit Realtor will take a commission or a fee on what they sell at the time of sell or signing, based upon the legal contract that you sign that enables them to transfer the property for the period agreed.

    Contrary to to the fast talking GMAC sales hawks, THERE IS NO FLORIDA LAW that makes it illegal for them to conduct business in a normal legitimate manner. If you pay them up front and they have your money, there is no incentive for them to do anything for you - even answer your phone calls!

    If and when you pay, for any timeshare services like these, always pay on a Credit Card (not Debit Card) so you can dispute the charge within the 30 or 60 days if the service promised does not meet your expectations.

    If the State Florida didn't make so much money out of the huge timeshare scam that largely finances the State, the legislators there might actually pass a law to regulate the industry! Till then, just hang up on the corruption!

    I signed my contract on February 25, 2009. Ten months later not an offer, nibble on either the rental or sale. As my sale price stands right now at "any offer considered" and in 2 month not a single offer. GMAC has done nothing for me that I would consider valuable.
