You can search the persons name at this location:

http://www.occompt.com/services/records-search/

to see if there is a DVC deed in their name. However, if they lied about their name then you still won't know. Also note that if you do get a match on the name, the address on the deed may not be the same as the current address.

If you're not fully satisfied that everything is kosher, don't do it.

Your best protection is having the reservation made in your name in the MDE before you send money. Then at least you know the reservation exists . Most owners will at least verify the confirmed reservation exists before you pay.

Established owners may want a deposit before making a reservation as many tire kickers are out there.

Thank you for this info. Being a newer dvcer I am always looking for helpful advice. I hadn't realized that people were trying these schemes. I guess I am just naive.

The #1 rule for anyone using the Rent/Trade boards is "Read the Stickies." This will give you plenty of information to protect yourselves, including how to verify actual ownership.
