Bethany’s timeshare debacle started when she was approached about attending a meeting to see what kind of new “products” her timeshare company had to offer. She was given incentives to attend, but it would not make up for the lies and deceit she was handed in return. The following includes a first-hand account from Bethany in regards to her timeshare nightmare. The names of people and companies have been removed for privacy reasons.
“This past July we agreed to go to a meeting to see what new products were coming. I had to pay $25 just to make sure we could attend the meeting. Once it was completed, we got either a $50 or $75 gift card. We met with two different salespeople. They started drawing a line and showing us what we would be paying in maintenance fees for 10 to 20 years. If we purchased more points then we could either pay a payment for points (10 years) or pay maintenance fees for that time. It looked like we would be better with more points and no maintenance fees. Due to fees going up, we would come out with better buying points and get rid of the maintenance fee. During this time, they kept talking about being a platinum member.”
It wasn’t until later that Bethany and her friend realized just what exactly they were getting into. It only took a month for the truth to be shown.
“The full story started to come out in August. We were told we would be maintenance fee-free, but we didn’t have any proof of this because there weren’t any signed documents. Two people went over a long sheet of paper which somehow, didn't make it home with us either. But never did they state we were getting into a two-part plan. Yet here we are, stuck in a 20-year plan.”
The worst part of it all is that in her old age, Bethany is afraid her daughter, Randi, might have to carry this burden should something happen to her. Randi commented on the situation and just how backward all of it feels:
“Bethany is 84 and if something happens to her we would have to carry all the burden. We can take what we would pay the timeshare company in a year and take vacations for the next 10 years and still come out with money in our pocket. It’s ridiculous. One part that really shocked me was when they suggested we do a mortgage and just pay it off. I told them that Bethany doesn’t even own a home, so the idea to have a timeshare mortgage is just awful.”
