Donna and her husband are experienced travelers. In 2019, the couple reached a lifelong goal of visiting every state in the U.S., but what they didn’t know was financial stress was waiting for them right around the corner. The following is a first-hand account of the timeshare ordeal that Donna and her spouse experienced. We hope her written account will shed some light on the strategies of the timeshare industry. Names of people have been changed and/or redacted for privacy reasons.
“Our big hardship was the financial burden of being at a higher level with our timeshare company. We didn't even realize how much we were paying until we sat down with the credit card statements and gasped. We kept complaining of the level of pressure put on us during the owner update meetings. How gullible we were to think that they were actually owner updates. They were sales pitches, and the staff used big pressure to get us to the next level. The salespeople lie and make you feel stupid if you don't say yes. We finally had enough.”
One pattern that Donna and her husband started to notice was that one salesman would show up after another left stating that he/she can fix things.
“They would tell us, ‘we can fix the problem that was created by the previous sales rep. You should have done this, so to fix it now you’re going to have to buy this’. Then, they would go on to tell us how we can travel wherever and whenever we want so long as we use their company. You can refinance your loan for a cheaper interest rate. Owning a timeshare is cheaper than paying for motels and transportation on your own. It was all a lie.”
Donna knew she had to find a way out of the situation she was in. She got on her computer and began doing some research.
“I found Wesley (Financial Group) and decided to do some more research. I looked into their process and read through previous client experiences. It felt like Wesley (Financial Group) really cared about their customers and they weren’t just after them to take their money.”
We are proud to announce that after Donna reached out to us, we helped rid her of over $120,000 in timeshare mortgage debt. This is not to mention that we also terminated her timeshare agreement, liberating any future travel plans for her and her spouse.*
“We are very satisfied with the results. We no longer have to deal with the timeshare company, and we feel free once again. WFG helped us with the process by letting the company know what we thought of them and canceling our timeshare. There was encouragement every step of the way, and we couldn’t be more grateful.”
