Another Fake RCI Meeting

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to stop.  Here is the latest information that RCI has sent out about fake RCI meetings taking place in the Bradenton, Florida area:


RCI has learned that a third party has invited certain RCI subscribing members residing in the Bradenton, Florida area to an "RCI update" meeting at a local Perkins restaurant some time this week.  RCI has not arranged for these meetings or contracted with any party to provide an update at such meetings on RCI's behalf.  Please exercise caution if you are contacted by anyone claiming to be related to RCI and call RCI directly at 1-877-968-7476 (RCI Points Members) or 1-800-338-7777 (RCI Weeks Members) with any questions.

RCI values its members and supports efforts by the American Resort Development Association Resort Owners'  Coalition (ARDA-ROC) to help timeshare owners navigate through the secondary market.  While some entities are legitimate resellers or rental agents of timeshare inventory, others are not.  For additional information, RCI members may wish to consult with their club or resort or visit ARDA-ROC's Timeshare Resale Resource Center at

PLEASE be wary of these fake RCI meetings.  RCI doesn't have meetings, at least outside of an affiliated resort.
If you know of any other instances, please pass them along to me.


  1. Lisa, What do you know about Festiva Development Group? Do they still use II or did they drop them?


  2. Last I heard, Festiva is now affiliated with RCI although some of their resorts may be dual affiliated.
