When Erica and her husband left their initial timeshare presentation, she was under the impression that her grandchildren would be able travel with them, the family would be able to travel in the summertime and that there were no extra fees for booking during the ‘available’ times.
The following is a firsthand account about Erica’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.
As if the original timeshare presentation wasn’t bad enough, Erica’s second timeshare presentation was just as grueling. She’d attended because she was told that this owner’s meeting would allow her to find a timeshare with the flexibility that her current timeshare didn’t.
“We had approximately 3-4 people talking to us on that day. It was such a long day. I feel like they pressured us until we were tired and mentally overwhelmed and you just signed papers not knowing what you are doing. They didn’t let us read as they talked. They read for us and told us to sign. Then they asked us if there were questions, and of course we didn’t even know where to start.”
After they had ‘upgraded’, Erica specifically remembers how the timeshare options became more expensive and less available. If she’d taken the time to sit through that treacherous second timeshare meeting, why had the options become more limited than the original timeshare she’d bought into?
At this point, Erica had practically given up booking her timeshare. But when the COVID-19 pandemic had practically shut down the world as we know it, Erica now had to deal with an unmanageable timeshare debt as well as bills that kept coming in. She thought she might be able to take this time to pay back some of the debt associated with her timeshare, but Erica was very surprised when the timeshare company sent ANOTHER maintenance bill in a time when no one could even use their timeshare properties.
Now frustrated with her timeshare, Erica knew she needed to do something to escape it.
“Hundreds of other people are using the timeshare every year, but we are never able to use it. We were paying for others to stay in the place that we thought we owned!”
After hearing an advertisement on the radio one day for Wesley Financial Group, LLC (WFG), Erica decided to reach out and see if she qualified for our timeshare cancellation services. Erica was relieved to find out that she not only qualified, but that WFG also has a 97% success rate! She knew that she had chosen a good partner and was more than ready to escape her timeshare nightmare.
“It was better than I ever thought. [WFG] knows what they are doing. They’re trustworthy and were there whenever we needed them. They answered the phone and called back in a timely manner. They always listened to our concerns too!”
Erica worked diligently alongside WFG to cancel her timeshare, and she is now relieved of nearly $8,000 of timeshare mortgage debt!* Erica can now happily enjoy her vacations with her family in a truly flexible way, while also planning for her grandchildrens’ college funds.
