Carla S. Felt Stranded In A Timeshare She Didn’t Buy

After Carla inherited a timeshare through her marriage, she felt stranded. Below includes a written account from Carla on her timeshare experience. We hope her commentary helps provide insight on the manipulating tactics the timeshare industry uses on trusting people. The names of people and companies have been changed due to privacy concerns. 

“My husband and his late wife bought a timeshare several years ago. After she passed away and I married my husband, I found it unbelievably difficult to maneuver this timeshare. My husband has some memory issues related to dementia and he is completely lost when it comes to trying to work with the timeshare company. So, I was in a lose-lose situation. I am well educated, but I found myself many times trying to understand the craziness of instructions we were given by representatives of the timeshare. It was so obvious that they wanted us confused. I did not want my name on the deed, but could not get out of the timeshare.”

The confusion continued for Carla. After multiple attempts of trying to reach out to the management group, Carla was met with more sales pitches about how she needed to buy more in order to clear things up. 

“I tried to get an idea of what the timeshare was all about since I was new to the idea. They would try to get us to put my name on the deed and buy more points. They told us that if we didn't buy more points we were going to end up losing the points we had. At one point, they told my husband that he didn't need to listen to me since my name wasn't on the deed. When he wouldn't buy more points and basically told them to take a hike, we had to walk back to our apartment in over 100 degree weather. It was a miserable experience.”

Feeling like the timeshare sales team tried to take advantage of her husband’s condition, Carla was fed up with their antics.

“Their obvious manipulation of older adults is disgraceful. I just don’t understand how they’re allowed to get away with it.”

One day the retired health care consultant started to do some research and found herself on the Wesley Financial Group, LLC (“WFG”) website. 

“I’m not going to lie, at first it seemed too good to be true. The timeshare company made it hard for us to trust anyone. But once we started to talk with them, it was easy to see that we made the right decision. They honestly held our hand throughout the entire process. Everything was spelled out to us. We felt followed, encouraged and supported. We thank God for Wesley Financial Group.”

We are proud to announce that after Carla reached out to us we were able to completely terminate her timeshare agreement. We were also able to assist her in relieving over $25,000 in timeshare mortgage debt.*

“I think that there is an associated shame in being trapped in a timeshare. WFG gave us a voice and renewed our dignity! We will always be grateful!”
