When vacationing in Gatlinburg, TN, George and his wife attended a
90-minute timeshare presentation, where they were told of the flexibility of owning a timeshare since the couple was nearing retirement. Soon after purchasing the timeshare and his wife’s retirement, though, George learned just how inflexible his timeshare option truly was.
The following is a firsthand account about George V.’s deceptive timeshare experience. We hope his 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 had originally bought a timeshare at a resort in the Smoky Mountains, and I was advised that I would be able to vacation during the summer months when me and my wife usually travel the most. That turned out to be incorrect, and I had to pay additional fees when using a timeshare in Myrtle Beach, SC, or Williamsburg, VA, where we usually like to travel frequently.”
George doesn’t specifically recall the timeshare sales presentation being difficult, but the issues with booking, reservations and overall costs after purchasing the timeshare are what has driven him to the brink of financial ruin. However, he and his wife obviously purchased the timeshare based on the promises from the timeshare sales team.
“[The sales people] really spoke highly of their program, but they didn’t share the consequences of owning a timeshare. I really felt taken advantage of by this arrangement. Our maintenance continued to rise, and the resort we wanted in the Smokies was only available during the winter months. We tried that once but got snowed in there. Never again.”
On top of limited availability for the few timeshares that his package could afford, George was oftentimes forced to upgrade to even use his timeshare points at the resort locations that his family wanted to visit. These options usually cost George more than any traditional vacation, and that’s when he realized that something needed to be done about this ever-increasing pest known as a timeshare.
George was driving home from work one day when he heard an advertisement on the radio for a timeshare cancellation company known as Wesley Financial Group, LLC (WFG). He’d contacted a qualification specialist about the company, its process and also saw WFG’s success rate.
Once he found out that he qualified for our timeshare cancellation services, George worked diligently with WFG to cancel his timeshare, and he’s happily now timeshare free and able to fully enjoy his retirement and time with his family again! With WFG’s assistance, George and his family were also relieved of nearly $9,000 of timeshare mortgage debt.*
“WFG is the only company that I considered working with. Everyone was professional and responsive. It took a little over a year, but I’m very excited to take normal vacations again.”
