At a Bass Pro Shop in Branson, Missouri, Ron and Lucy were convinced to attend a timeshare presentation because they liked to travel. And, as these things usually go with timeshare presentations, the couple was led to believe that their timeshare was very flexible and that they could travel anywhere with their family.
The following is a firsthand account about Ron and Lucy’s deceptive timeshare experience. We hope their 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.
Ron and Lucy were given several different gift cards in exchange for attending a timeshare presentation, and they saw the value in said gift cards; however, what they didn’t see at the time was the lack of value in the timeshare they ended up purchasing at that initial presentation.
“We were told that we would be able to schedule a vacation at any time. We were also told that we could let our kids use the timeshare, and we’d just have to pay an added rental price if we weren’t there. All we had to do was call and add their name to the reservation list.”
Ron and Lucy eventually purchased the timeshare after a grueling three hour presentation. The couple recalls the feelings that the timeshare sales team evoked when Ron and Lucy went to the presentation.
“They made us feel like we were getting a great deal that we couldn’t pass up. When we tried to leave, they just sold us a cheaper way to do it. We went the next day to cancel the timeshare but they showed us a cheaper one with less points and a smaller payment.
At the second meeting, two people came up to try and sell us more points so we can get a better chance at a vacation where we want. They were ready for anything.”
After all of this hassle, Ron and Lucy were actually never able to use their timeshare. That’s right! The couple has paid thousands of dollars over the past few years toward a timeshare they could never use.
“None of our children or grandchildren wanted it when we were gone. We were having financial struggles to pay for it and we weren’t able to use it. We didn’t even stay at the timeshare when we went to the presentations because none were available.”
Feeling defeated by their timeshare, Ron and Lucy began searching for ways out. They knew that they had to escape this nightmare, if not for themselves then for their family. The couple didn’t want to leave this burden to the children when they passed away.
One day, Ron saw an advertisement for Wesley Financial Group, LLC (WFG) on daytime television. He was skeptical, but he gave WFG a call and loved his experience along the way. He discovered that he qualified for our timeshare cancellation services, so Ron and Lucy decided to take a leap of faith. With the assistance of WFG, Ron and Lucy were able to cancel their timeshare and relieve themselves from nearly $25,000 in associated timeshare mortgage debts after several months of determination on their part!*
