Anybody remember back from 2009 an company calling itself My Favorite Vacations? The person running the outfit would accept reservations and money for timeshares here in the Williamsburg area, and also in Florida, but never pass along the reservations and money to the timeshares. Vacationers would turn up at the timeshare, who knew nothing about their "reservation." Well, the woman responsible, Maria Rosso, was arrested in Florida in late 2009. More recently, she was indicted in James City County.
"A woman arrested more than a year ago in Florida on charges of selling fake vacation packages in the Williamsburg area as well as other states was indicted on two felony counts by a local grand jury on Wednesday."

Just a cautionary tale, I guess. You have to be careful about who you are dealing with. Fortunately, we haven't heard of similar scams in this area for a while. May it ever be so!
