An Elderly Retired Nurse Was Hassled by Timeshare Salespeople

Benita worked very hard for her money as a full-time nurse and part-time clinical instructor in the Ohio Valley area. Now entering retirement, Benita looked forward to exploring more places with her family. 

Then the unthinkable happened. Benita’s father, and her aging mother’s husband, passed away. It shocked Benita’s family and broke her mother’s heart.

“My mom had just lost her husband and was having a hard time adjusting to the change,” said Benita.

When Benita was offered a free stay at a resort in exchange for attending a short presentation, she thought it would be an excellent opportunity for her and her mother to clear their minds.             

“We were excited about the vacation. We were told we only had to listen to a timeshare presentation on the first day there to get our free stay.”

Benita’s Timeshare Experience Was Similar to So Many Others

When Benita and her mother sat in their timeshare meeting, she remembers the discussion feeling intense. It was hard to keep up with all of the information thrown at them.

“We asked if we could both sign, and they said yes, but they did not tell me as the primary signer that the timeshare would transfer to my estate first.

The salesperson also told us that the timeshare was a great way to invest in family vacations. They also told us the maintenance fees were only $300 a year. My mom and I thought we could split the costs to make the payments more manageable. The salesperson convinced us that the fees had not increased in over ten years.

However, the salesperson did not tell us that the timeshare could accrue extra assessments at any given moment. These additional assessments would then be required in addition to the annual maintenance fees.”

“We’ve paid over $10,000 on this timeshare, and no one has had the opportunity to use it.” 

When she and her mother first signed the paperwork, Benita thought that the timeshare would be a great way to spend a vacation together with her family. However, despite trying, she was never able to use the timeshare.

Benita had tried several times to book her timeshare. She paid what she thought were the fees due when moving her weeks around, but she still couldn’t use it. Furthermore, the fees kept coming in.

“They never told me that to exchange my week, I would have to pay an additional yearly fee. Also, they never said that if I decided to use my week at another resort, I would have to buy the meal plan for the entire week.

One day, Benita saw a social media advertisement for Wesley Financial Group, LLC (“WFG”)*. She thought it might be her family’s opportunity to escape her timeshare. She decided to see instead if she’d qualify for WFG’s timeshare cancellation services. 

“It would lift a financial burden off my family’s shoulders if we could cancel our timeshare. We’ve paid over $10,000 on this timeshare, and no one has had the opportunity to use it.” 

Since Benita qualified for WFG’s timeshare cancellation services, she began the work required to cancel her timeshare. After nearly 19 years of being stuck in her family’s timeshare, Benita was finally timeshare free after working with WFG for about four months!*

Benita trusted WFG to help her escape her timeshare, just like thousands of other families have. Still, she’s not the only person stuck in a timeshare. Thousands of other people are lured into timeshare agreements every day. If you or anyone you know are looking to cancel your timeshare, please contact Wesley Financial Group, LLC at (800) 425-4081
