Timeshare Mistake

We were in Orlando in January spending a few days before our Fantasy cruise. We went to a timeshare presentation at Orange Lake Resort and ended up buying. I don't know what came over us. We're not impulse buyers, but the possibilities of using the points for RCI seemed to be very attractive at the time. Well, the next day we left for our cruise and were not in the country for the one week period where you could rescind your decision. We now have some major regret. We could have spent that money for additional DVC points and would also had access to RCI if we wanted it.
I was wishing that something might happen to give us an out (a very unrealistic wish) when today we received an unsolicited call from Creative Travel Choice. They apparently got our name and number from Orange Lake. They have a program where you can contract with them and they rent your points to large corporations that are looking for resorts to send their employees to. The prices they quoted to me were very attractive and there was no commission. The contract for the rental would hold the corporations liable for any damages, not the timeshare owner. Has anyone ever heard of this before? We had no intention of buying a timeshare to make money, we just weren't comfortable with what we bought. It seems too good to be true.

Thoughts, anyone?
