‘[My husband and I] have been married 40 years; we purchased the timeshare 30 years ago. At that time, we both had good jobs and felt like we could afford a little bit of luxury. At the time, we never saw the whole story of the timeshare.’
The following is a firsthand, written account about Catherine’s deceptive timeshare experience. We hope her 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.
When Catherine and her husband purchased a timeshare just over 30 years ago, the idea of timeshare ownership was much different than it is today. The couple bought into a fixed week ownership at an actual unit, but their difficulties in booking the unit are nearly similar to most families’ difficulties today.
Catherine was told in the early 1990’s that she could rent out the timeshare unit or resale it because of the increase in value of the property. Sound familiar? These lies and misdeeds are similar to the same ones told by timeshare sales people today!
She has held onto the timeshare for nearly 30 years, but recent changes in Catherine and her husband’s personal life have caused them to really search for ways out of their timeshare.
“In 2005, my husband was diagnosed with throat cancer. I took early retirement to be with him, but we found out a year later that he wouldn’t be able to return to work because his throat wasn’t going to recover that much. So our situation went from bad to worse!
We still had the same timeshare bills due every month, but we’d suddenly gone down to a fourth of our regular income. Again, we tried to sell our points back to the timeshare, rent out the timeshare or sell them through other sources, but no such luck!”
Catherine’s husband was watching television one day when he saw an advertisement for Wesley Financial Group, LLC (WFG). At this point, the couple had nearly given up on ever getting rid of their timeshare, but they decided to look more into WFG. Catherine talked to her son, who works at a large national bank, to look into WFG as well. When he determined that WFG seemed like a reputable company, Catherine contacted us to help her escape this timeshare nightmare!
It took about two months to completely finalize everything, but Catherine and her husband are now timeshare free!* When asked how she plans to enjoy her life with family without exorbitant timeshare fees, Catherine says she can, “Relax, knowing there are no more timeshare fees due and [the timeshare company] can’t come back to our children after our deaths.”
