It might seem as though the timeshare industry tends to target people who have retired, but this is not always the case. Peter, a 32-year-old from Philadelphia, quickly found this out when he thought buying a timeshare would be a great investment for the rest of his life. The following is a word for word account of the timeshare disaster he encountered. Names of people have been changed for privacy reasons.
“When I originally explored buying a timeshare, I think what appealed to me was the flexibility. What I didn’t understand was the difficulty of travel. Booking dates of where we wanted and when we wanted was nearly impossible. This is not to mention the fees!! They were outrageous and expensive. Not only does it give you more freedom to just book a vacation yourself, but it is also way cheaper than a timeshare.”
Just before signing up for his timeshare, Peter was met with a few lies. One being that he wouldn’t have to worry about any dates where his timeshare would be unavailable to him to use.
“I was told everything will be done for me and there wouldn’t be any blackout dates. I was also told everything rolls over, meaning that whatever I didn’t use one year I could use towards the next year. There were also ‘added bonuses’, but they were just free trials you got hooked on with extra fees at the end. I think when I really sit back and reflect, the biggest issue for me was the pressure of signing right there and then or we would lose out on everything.”
Once Peter finally had enough, he tried contacting the timeshare company itself to get rid of this financial hardship. He was told that they could partner with a third party company to help sell his timeshare for him.
“So I did my research on them (third party) and saw that they very rarely sold any timeshares. I was not enthused.”
Peter then started looking for other options. After googling for different ways to get out of his timeshare, he found Wesley Financial Group, LLC and was pleased when he read a promising review.
“I think what really sold me on Wesley was a review from previous clients who talked about the company and their relentless nature.”
After we helped Peter start the termination process, we are pleased to say we were able to relieve Peter of over $10,000 in timeshare debt. He is now free of this burden.
“I think what I loved the most about working with Wesley Financial Group is that they kept in touch the whole way and made me feel like I didn't throw away my money for nothing. It was excellent service.”
