Shortly after making considerable investments for his family such as purchasing a new house and sending his children to college, Brian was swindled into buying a timeshare. Rather than making his daughter’s college experience worthwhile or using expenses to maintain and improve their home, this timeshare was taking everything they had and then some.
We hope Brian’s written account on his experience owning a timeshare will open your eyes to the tactics used by salespeople on innocent and trusting people. Names of companies and people have been changed or omitted due to privacy concerns.
“While on vacation with my family in Las Vegas, I was pulled into one of those sales presentations that offered a free cruise trip if I attended. I was under the impression that it was no purchase necessary, but once there, I was highly pressured and intimidated into buying a timeshare. I asked on multiple occasions for more time to think about the offer but was always countered with the argument I had to decide right now, because it was a one-time-only deal.”
Many times timeshare representatives will use a number of different lies to get people to sign up, but what do they do when those people do not have the financial means to afford it? Well, they feed them more lies and push a new credit card on to them to cover the payments.
“In order to purchase this timeshare, we were persuaded into opening a new credit card account for the down payment. I was told I would not have to make any payment on this card for at least the first six months, but I received the first bill in less than a month. That just became yet another debt that my family did not need in their lives right now.”
Brian and his wife were at a moment in their life when they already had several extra expenses with no room for more. Even though they instructed the salespeople they were not in a position to make any more unnecessary expenditures, the intimidation never let up.
“This purchase was made less than a year after we bought our new house, and all the money we drained into the timeshare could have been much more effectively spent on maintaining our new home. It was emptying our pockets for no good reason and creating an unnecessary debt for my family’s future. Since purchasing the timeshare, we were not able to use it once and all the money we had spent on it would have been a great help in paying for our daughter’s college.”
Looking for a way out for years, Brian, unfortunately, got scammed yet again. This time he was scammed by a third-party cancellation company which he never heard back from. He finally reached out to us after looking through our trustworthy reviews and testimonials. We have happily terminated his timeshare and relieved him of close to $20,000 in mortgage debt.*
“I was very satisfied with the results we received from Wesley Financial Group, and the process was so much quicker than expected. Their staff was always easily available to contact and had a great understanding of our personal situation. Thanks to their help, I can enjoy the freedom of not owning a timeshare once again.”
