What was thought to be only a one-hour-long presentation, turned into an endless timeshare sales pitch. Gracie and Graham lost track of how many timeshare salespeople they talked to that day, as it seemed to never end for the couple. All a part of an elaborate plan to wear them down until they agreed to purchase.
Hear Gracie and Graham’s side of the story as they come forward and share it. We hope their experience will shed some light on the wrongdoings taking place in the vacation industry. In the story below, we have changed or omitted the name of companies and people due to privacy concerns.
“First off, we were offered gifts to even attend this sales presentation. We were given tickets to an entertainment show nearby if we were to go with the salespeople. We didn’t jump at this opportunity, but they were pretty pushy and we ended up agreeing to go. It was not much of a presentation really. We just spoke with a bunch of different salespeople all day long.”
Using gifts or prizes as a means of persuasion is quite common among timeshare salespeople. All too often, we hear stories from timeshare owners that start with them essentially being bribed to attend a timeshare presentation.
“The meeting ended up lasting for over 6 hours! We did not schedule for that, and our family missed out on several events that we had planned for that day. They even told us it would only be a 60-minute presentation, but when we were in there it felt like we couldn’t get out. We just kept telling them “no, no, no!” but they wouldn’t listen. They just kept pushing it.”
Timeshare salespeople have a bit of a reputation for not being able to take “no” for an answer. They seem to never stop with their onslaught of deceitful sales tactics. If the sales pitch goes on for as long as Gracie and Graham’s did, then it’s almost certain they’ll start saying anything just to get a sale.
“Near the end of it all, we were so tired and just ready to leave. They had lowered the price so much since we kept declining and by the end, it seemed like a reasonable price. At least in the mind state we were in that time, which probably was not great after 6 hours! Next thing we know is we’re timeshare owners and are being charged outrageous costs annually.”
Gracie and Graham had been broken down by countless timeshare salespeople over an exhausting period of time. They were lied to about the true price of their timeshare and were not advised of many of the specifics of the deal either.
“Owning the timeshare was truly a nightmare. It was much more expensive than what we remembered agreeing to, and not to mention the price went up every single year! It was a financial struggle and only caused us personal hardship.”
It was time for a change. Gracie and Graham never wanted the timeshare to begin with and they knew they needed to go ahead and find a way to get rid of it before their situation worsened. They were referred by a friend to Wesley Financial Group, LLC and it seemed like all their wishes were granted.
“We are so grateful for the help we received from Wesley Financial Group, LLC. They looked out for us and made sure our timeshare was terminated in a timely manner. They relieved a heavy amount of stress off of us.*”
