For Bethel, traveling is a physical hardship. At the age of 93, she just isn’t interested in having to go through the process of a vacation. The following is a word for word account of the timeshare mess that Bethel has been subjected to. We hope her written account will help show some of the backward tactics the industry uses on innocent customers. The names of people and companies have been removed for privacy reasons.

“It all started in 1993 for me, when I purchased my first timeshare. From there, I just kept getting deeper in debt after getting talked into buying more and more. Now that quite some time has passed, I can see how much of a mess this has all been.”

In 2019, Bethel decided to file for hardship since she was physically unable to travel. The timeshare company told her first she would need to buy more points. 

“They told me I needed an active mortgage to file a hardship (all previous eight upgrades had been paid off) so I upgraded to 6,500 points. Then I went to another presentation that next month where a salesman told me I needed at least 50,000 more points to get out of the contract, so I purchased another 6,000 points to add on to the points I had already bought the previous month.”

Feeling like she was in a hole that kept getting deeper, Bethel tried to contact the salespeople, but there was no answer. Until finally, a salesperson in Las Vegas got back to her saying her only hope was to sell. 

“Both he and his manager told me that there would be no release for hardship and instead my only way out of this situation would be to sell my timeshare with an outside company. Now that my debt is close to $130,000, I had to figure something else out.”
