Darcy C. was completely sold on the idea that a timeshare would make all of her vacation dreams come true. She was led to believe that with a timeshare, she would be able to make her favorite trips every year and also visit other parts all over the country. The timeshare salespeople told her everything, but the truth.
Below is a firsthand, written account from Darcy on the constant trouble she had as a timeshare owner. Turns out, her experience was nothing like the salespeople presented it to be. We hope her story will enlighten many others to the dishonest practices continuously coming from the timeshare sales industry. Names have been changed or redacted due to privacy concerns.
“My family and I always enjoyed traveling. So when a timeshare was presented to me, it just made sense. I was vacationing with my family in a city we visited often, and that’s when a timeshare was first brought to my attention. Salespeople from a nearby resort approached me and asked me to attend a short presentation.”
Darcy and her family visited this city every year and were always staying in hotels around this resort, so she decided to attend the presentation and see what the resort was offering. Prior to this encounter, she had no knowledge of timeshares whatsoever. Unfortunately, the salespeople used this to their advantage.
“They made so many promises to me about the timeshare that never happened. First off, I was offered a free cruise trip for attending the presentation and tried to use it several times but could never get it booked. I was also under the impression that I would be able to make multiple trips a year, but that was not the case. I struggled to get enough points to make even one trip. I was told several times that the deal was only available that day so I felt pressured to buy right away.”
Shortly after purchasing the timeshare, Darcy’s problems only worsened. She was left completely unaware of the maintenance fees during the presentation and was even more shocked to see them increase every year. Her timeshare expenses had grown exponentially in just a few years.
“I began getting really nervous about the maintenance fees increasing every time. I talked to a friend who told me that their timeshare almost sent them into bankruptcy. I was scared that would happen to me because I already could not keep up with the payments. So I asked that friend how they got out of theirs and did exactly what they did.“
Darcy’s friend was a former client of ours at Wesley Financial Group, LLC (WFG) and they referred her to us. We were happy to take a look at her case and see if she qualified for our world-class timeshare termination services.
The good news was that she not only qualified but was also out of her timeshare agreement within less than 6 months after working with us! Not only that but Darcy was also relieved of more than $23,000 in mortgage debt with her resort.* Now she’s working with our credit repair services to help her credit get back on track.
If you know anyone with a similar timeshare experience, please feel free to pass our phone number along to them. We’d love to see if they qualify for our timeshare termination services.
