Weston and his wife, Lana, have three children and (currently) two grandchildren. As Weston looks to retire, he wanted to travel more with his family. Since a timeshare was pitched as flexible, affordable and accessible, Weston figured...why not? It didn’t take long for Weston or his wife to figure out just why not.
The following is a firsthand, written account about Weston’s deceptive timeshare experience. We hope his story will help shed a light on the distrustful practices of the timeshare sales industry. Names have been changed or redacted due to privacy concerns.
Since he and his wife looked to retire within the next decade, Weston was open to the idea of a timeshare. He wanted something with flexibility since he wanted to travel with extended family. He was told about a timeshare’s ‘flexibility’, along with several other perks during his hours-long sales meeting.
“During the presentation, we were told that it was a great real estate investment for us. We were also told that we could make reservations when we wanted. Basically, the sales representative made it sound like we were getting the deal of the century.”
After purchasing what he thought was a great real estate investment, Weston soon realized just what he’d gotten himself into. As with so many other timeshare owners before, the timeshare company essentially told Weston and his family whatever they wanted to hear...even if those statements were complete lies!
“We had to call and make reservations for our date range one day at a time on consecutive days at midnight EDT. We had to do this multiple times...otherwise we had gaps in our stay! This was ridiculous considering we live in California.
We were told at the signing that this ‘investment’ would be handed down to our children. Later, we learned that we had lifelong annual maintenance fees that we were leaving our children with after we passed away!”
Weston was frustrated with the growing maintenance fees and lack of availability with the timeshare. On top of actually scheduling available vacation times outside of the timeshare, he was still required to pay the maintenance fees and mortgage. He was fed up with the entire process, and he had been discussing a way to cancel the timeshare with his wife for about a year before he came across an advertisement for Wesley Financial Group, LLC (WFG).
After nearly 11 months of working with WFG, Weston and his family are now timeshare free! They were also relieved of nearly $51,000 in timeshare mortgage debt relief!*
“I consider myself a very detail oriented, organized and former professional manager. I owned my first business at the age of 25. With 30 years of customer service experience myself, I can confidently say that Wesley Financial Group DELIVERS.”
