Jerome and Grace learned firsthand how difficult it is to cancel a timeshare. They tried to get out of the deal almost immediately after the purchase but were already too late. Unfortunately, they had to go years as timeshare owners before they were finally able to find a way out of it. Below is the couple’s personal story of how they were initially swindled into a timeshare agreement and then how they came across the help of Wesley Financial Group, LLC. Names of people and companies have been changed or redacted due to privacy concerns.
“My husband and I never intended to purchase a timeshare but when they had us in their sales pitch, we felt like we couldn’t say no. They pressured us constantly and when we showed disinterest, they guilted us by saying what a shame it was that we couldn’t provide for our children. We eventually fell to their pressure but regretted it instantly. We got back home from our vacation, and I just started crying thinking about this new debt we were taking on. I called to cancel it once we got back home, but they said it was already past the cancellation period, and it had only been three days.”
This couple was not yet financially stable enough to take on this burden. The timeshare sales people knew this too, but that did not stop them from pursuing the sale. They convinced Jerome and Grace to also sign up for a new credit card to cover the upfront costs for the timeshare mortgage. Recognizing that it was a mistake right away, they tried to put a stop to it.
“We were never told there was even a cancellation period. I just decided to call them as soon as we got back home from vacation, and that was somehow already past the period, even though it was only a few days since. Having to put up with the timeshare was a nightmare and making those annual payments was painful for us. We used the timeshare unit once and that was only so we could try and talk to someone about getting out of our agreement.”
When Jerome and Grace visited their timeshare company attempting to get help from them, it was a fruitless attempt. Instead, they were disrespected once again as the resort attempted to push an upgrade onto the couple. They were all too familiar with these sales tactics this time and left the room right away.
“The timeshare only brought us painful memories and regret. We were lied to and shamed into something we never wanted to begin with. After years of paying for it, we could no longer afford to spend another dime on the scam that it was. We were searching for help when a family friend referred us to Wesley Financial Group, LLC. After hearing their CEO’s story, we were hooked.”
We were happy to work with Jerome and Grace and see that their goal of getting out of the timeshare came to fruition. After reaching out to us here at WFG, the couple was out of their timeshare agreement within a year.* Now these wonderful people no longer have to stress about the financial burden of owning a timeshare.
