Has any Wyndham Vacation Owner been contacted recently by the Vacation Ownership (VO) group to 'settle' your debt with Bank of America (BOA) because of your debt with Wyndham Vacation Resorts?

I have and it 'sounds too good to be true'.... The VO group claims to be working on behalf of BOA to 'settle the debts' of disinfrancised Wyndham Vacation Owners. More specifically it is to 'avoid a class-action lawsuit' because - as we see in this blog many of us were told incorrect information about our ownership. The 'settlement' is a significant reduction to the amount of $$ owed to BOA (for the Wyndham purchase)with an option to reduce the amount of points you own. -- However the points can not go to 0.

If so - will you please post what you know?

Thanks!

:( :x

Purchased FairField deed in 2001. Now Wyndham. Last month I called to get a "pay off" amount so that I could just get the balance out of the way and go on with life. I am getting robbed by the "maintenance" fees.... the day after I sent said "paid in full" check to Wyndham I closed out the auto-debit at my bank thinking all is done and said. NOT

I called to verify that they had indeed taken care of my debt (after I received the signed signature returned green card from the USPS). They stated I STILL owed $106.82. I stated that I HAD indeed paid everything off but needed to catch up on the maintenance fees.

Now they claim I owe them 107.94 as a balance on the debt.

Not to mention that they say I owe over $550 for 2011 maintenance fees and $497 for 2012. This CANT BE... I had been paying them money every month in 2011 for maintenance fees... there's NO WAY I owe them that much!!

Now what?????

It's just a classic example of how people come on here *** about the most ridiculous *** and expect people to only see their side.

Come on don't bash her. While this letter is most likely fake at least she is not claiming she had to beat her children out of anger because the candy machine she bought did not work. She is not claiming her mother is a white nurse and should be treated like royalty because she makes so much money. Just let her have her fun. It is not offensive nor hurting anyone.

I have to agree with you, that other random person may have been first slapped by your mother, however two wrongs don't make a right. So while it is acceptable for your mother to slap the man first(next time tell her to kick him in the balls) it is not right for the other lady to copy her...

SECONDLY about the candy bar, please explain how it is Pick n Saves fault for your precious mom not reading what the *** is in the candy bar before opening. So she found out there weren't any nuts...she would still have to pay for it!!! Than if she wanted she would have to contact the manufacturer of the candy bar. THIRD yes an employee is going to ask if she was going to pay for it...but for some reason that deserves for him to be slapped??? A random lady saw this and slapped your mom...that is the only part of your complaint that actually makes sense!!!! FOURTH you can go ahead and sue Pick n Save but letting you know now that you don't have a chance in winning. Most likely the end result will be tons of footage from previous shopping experiences your mom has had there while she sampled without paying and will end in lots of charges being brought on your mom. WOW you and your mom are one of a kind. Really I mean it. Also, okay yes it sucks that the candy bar didn't have any peanuts BUT between the both of you combined I think peanuts are not necessary because you are both nutty yourselves. Honestly, you'll never learn from your mistakes until you actually admit to them.

The U.S. economy added 244,000 jobs in April, the government said Friday. Economists surveyed by CNNMoney had predicted an increase of 185,000 jobs in April, following a 216,000 rise in March.

0Email Print As stocks rallied, oil prices flip-flopped. Crude fell 3% ahead of the jobs report, then got a little boost before retreating again.

In early afternoon trading, crude for June delivery slipped 1% to $98.80 a barrel. On Thursday, crude sank nearly 9% -- the biggest one-day percentage drop in two years.

"Oil prices are going crazy," said Phil Flynn, senior market analyst at PFG Best. "We had this huge correction because people were concerned about the economy slowing down and demand weakening, and now we're rebounding from yesterday's selloff because we got a good jobs report and people are saying maybe demand will be okay."

Track commodities

Flynn said oil had to take a break from the recent run-up at some point, and now that "we broke the back of the parabolic bull move," it will just take some time for prices to stabilize.

"We're going to see some volatility, but I do think we've hit the top -- I don't think we're going to see $115 a barrel for some time," he said, adding that once the near-term choppiness smoothes out, prices will likely hover between $80 and $104 a barrel.

Crude prices neared $114 a barrel last month as fears about supplies took hold following escalating violence in Libya. But as investors got 'accustomed' to those concerns, oil prices became mired in a fairly tight range...until this week.

0:00 /3:24Job growth is good news ... Right?

In the past week, oil prices have tumbled more than 10% on worries that recent disappointing economic reports may mean we are in for an economic slowdown.

Along with oil, stocks also took a big hit Thursday as investors became increasingly nervous ahead of the government's monthly jobs report.

Earlier this week, payroll processing company ADP said private sector payrolls grew by 179,000 in April, after an upwardly revised 207,000 increase in March. Economists were expecting a gain of 200,000 private sector jobs.

The ADP jobs report typically sets the tone for the government's monthly jobs data. Meanwhile, on Thursday, a report showed jobless claims surged to the highest level in eight months.

The dollar gained nearly 2% on Thursday after the European Central Bank left interest rates unchanged -- putting additional pressure on oil prices. Because crude prices are priced in dollars, a stronger U.S. currency tends to pressures commodities.

That was the case Friday as well, with the dollar rallying 1% against the euro, which added to the commodities selling pressure.

Silver: canary in the commodity coalmine?

In other commodities, silver prices also pared some of its early losses, falling 4% Friday -- after sinking 7% before the jobs report. Silver has taken a big hit after the CME raised its margin requirements, meaning traders have to leave more on the table to buy silver futures.

Gold for June delivery ticked up $2.10, or 1%, to 1483.50, after dropping more than 2% on Thursday.

Gas prices declined on Friday, following a 44-day string of gains -- during which the price of gasoline surged 12%. The national average price for a gallon of gasoline fell one tenth of a cent to $3.984 on Friday, according to motorist group AAA.

Miami, Florida (CNN) -- Rescuers worked feverishly Friday to save a group of pilot whales who stranded themselves in shallow waters near the Florida Keys, officials said.

There were more than 16 pilot whales stranded in an area about 20 miles north of Key West, said Art Cooper, vice chairman of the Marine Mammal Conservancy.

Officials say two whales are now confirmed dead and there may be more.

The others are being brought to a holding pen at a marina in Cudjoe Key.

"It's a way to control the situation and to serve as protection for the volunteers and for the animals," said Karrie Carnes, a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration spokeswoman with the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary.

By about 4 a.m. ET Friday a team of about 50 people were able to get six of the whales into a safer area and were protecting them with a sea pen they had created, Cooper said.

The group of whales were spread out in about a four-mile area in waters that were as shallow as three inches in some areas.

The situation for the animals was dire because mass strandings can be a sign of some kind of sickness in some of the whales, Cooper said. Also being stuck in shallow waters makes them vulnerable to predators.

"It is a bad situation for them when they get in the shallows and thrash around and bloody themselves," said Cooper. "If there is nobody to intervene for them they will die."

Carnes also said the whales are in a perilous situation.

"It is highly likely that these animals are emaciated, that they are compromised," said Carnes.

Adult pilot whales can measure up to 20 feet long and weigh up to 3 tons. Due to their social nature, they are often involved in mass strandings, according to the American Cetacean Society. The ACS is a non-profit group based in California that works to protect whales, dolphins and porpoises, according to its website.

The workers are "taking vital signs, blood samples and general health assessments," Carnes said.

Wet sheets are being placed over their bodies in an effort to block the sun and keep them moist. But officials say that determining the exact number of whales stranded is difficult because of the tides.

"It's like trying to hit a moving target," said Carnes."We have reports of a few more, that are alive, and a few more that are dead."

Officials say it is not yet clear why the whales stranded themselves.

A similar incident occurred in the Florida Keys in 2003, when 28 whales were stranded. Most of them died, but after several months of care, five were released back into the ocean.

Carnes told CNN that they will determine the health and the hope to transfer the pilot whales to a rehabilitation facility in Key Largo.

Last year, dozens of pilot whales died in northern New Zealand after 58 of them were stranded on a remote beach.

Not many people would want to buy a house with a history of being burglarized, but when it's the "Home Alone" house, that's another story.

The red-brick Winnetka, Ill., colonial Georgian featured in the blockbuster 1990 Macaulay Culkin movie has just been put on the market and can be had for a cool $2.4 million, reports Chicago's WGN.

Though Culkin isn't included in the asking price, it will get you a 4,250-square-foot residence with 14 rooms, four bedrooms, 3.2 baths, a screened-in porch, a chandelier, and a staircase suitable for sledding.

Unfortunately there will be no open houses for this hot property, which sits on a half-acre lot—qualified buyers must make an appointment for a viewing.

“It would be a zoo,” said Marissa Hopkins of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. “There are a lot of people who would like to see the Home Alone house if they were given the opportunity.”

Your mother is a thief, and while she doesn't deserve to be slapped, neither did the employee who confronted her about her theft. If she walked out of Kohls with a shirt on that she didn't pay for, she would be arrested for shoplifting. Why does she think she should get to walk around the store eating whatever she wants? Go to Sam's Club on a Saturday if you want free samples. Otherwise, PAY FOR WHAT YOU EAT!

Your mother was WRONG. The employee who confronted her was RIGHT. Go back to Trailer-Trash-Ville if you think your mom's actions are appropriate.
