Danielle has spent most of her life establishing and running her own small business, so her personal time has become quite valuable to her over the years. Since she has traveled with her family to nearly all 50 US states and seven countries throughout her life, Danielle was convinced during her timeshare presentation that a timeshare unit would offer her the flexibility that she needed for her hectic schedule.
The following is a firsthand account about Danielle R.'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.
“I love to travel,” says Danielle, “and maybe they sensed that in the first meeting. They kept telling us of all the places we could travel and save so much money in the process.
Then we were shown the resort accommodations, which were beautiful. We were told [by the timeshare sales people] that we could rent out our timeshare to help cover the costs and that [the timeshare company] had locations all over the world with a lot of availability.”
Danielle spent years paying for a timeshare that she was hardly ever able to use. One of the few times she was able to use the timeshare in Mexico, the sales team told Danielle and her husband that they could compound her existing points with a new points package to get the best deals on the best locations around the world. Danielle had her eyes on Hawaii, so she decided to go for the added expense in order for her and her husband to celebrate their wedding anniversary the next year.
She soon found out that she wasn’t able to utilize all the points she thought they’d purchased, but the monthly bills for the timeshare kept coming like clockwork.
“Even my husband had to get a second job in order to pay for this timeshare. I was worried we wouldn’t be able to retire on time if we didn’t do something about getting rid of this timeshare.”
She recalls how the resorts were not up to any sort of pristine standards that they should’ve been. Danielle also raised a question that many owners have asked of timeshares over the years: “How can they get away with distorting the truth like that? It’s unreal.”
Danielle had searched for nearly six months before finding Wesley Financial Group, LLC (WFG) online. She recalls how her family had spent nearly $96,000 in excessive fees and costs related to their timeshare, so Danielle knew she needed a way out. After nearly 7 months of working alongside WFG to escape her timeshare, Danielle is now timeshare free and was relieved of nearly $200,000 of timeshare mortgage debt!*
