Hello and Welcome to JustAnswer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX my goal is to provided you with Excellent Service,
I am sorry to hear about your timeshare situation. Since you purchased and paid for the timeshare, you have the right to vacation during your timeshare period. If the Timeshare does not permit you to use your Timeshare during the vacation period designated for your Timeshare because there are outstanding unpaid fees which your seller should have paid, your recourse would be against the seller. The seller should reimburse you for any fees you paid which should have been paid by the seller, but also for the loss of use of your Timeshare unit. If the seller refuses, you can file a lawsuit against the seller for reimbursement, damages, and misrepresentation,

Since the Driftwood Inn is not a party to the transaction between you and the seller, they would have no way of knowing what arrangements or agreements you and your seller had. And, since Driftwood had a record of your seller banking those weeks prior to the sale, it had no choice. Your seller had an obligation to you to either withdraw its request for the room, or made an agreement with you to give you a concession on the purchase price. But, either way, and in any event, Driftwood and RCI were not parties to the transaction between you and your seller and, therefore, your recourse was and still is against the seller who should compensate you in all respects as I outlined in my previous Answer, If the seller refuses, you can file a lawsuit against the seller for reimbursement, damages, and misrepresentation,
You do not need a police report; In fact, I do not believe that the police in either Florida, or Michigan would file a police report on this. They would tell you that this is a civil matter because (1) It does not rise to the level of a crime; and (2) you have a civil remedy, i.e., file a lawsuit against the seller for the damages I listed in my previous Answer,
