As a widow with many children and grandchildren, Danielle A. is accustomed to traveling a lot with her family. When she and her late husband purchased a timeshare nearly two decades ago, Danielle anticipated spending a lot of valuable family time with everyone on amazing family vacations. She looked forward to making even more memories as grandchildren and extended family entered the picture, too!
The following is a firsthand account of Danielle’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.
Danielle and her late husband purchased the timeshare in the late 1990s. Since then, Danielle has hardly been able to enjoy the timeshare because of various obstacles, including booking and availability, personal health issues, and the passing of her late husband. However, Danielle and her late husband decided to purchase the timeshare back in the ’90s based on one popular misconception told by timeshare salesmen: the infamous “easy buyback” option.
“[The salesmen] LIED to us! They said that their company would purchase it back if we ever wanted to sell it. We kept having to pay more and more money the few times we used it. They told us it was easy to book vacations whenever and wherever we wanted (also a lie), but when we told them [the timeshare] wasn’t what we thought it would be, they wouldn’t buy it back. Wrong!”
After experiencing the death of her husband a few years ago now, Danielle once again tried to book a getaway for herself, her children, and grandchildren to enjoy in honor of her late husband. She knew it was what he would want for the family, but she simply couldn’t find any availability. The timeshare she was still paying for two decades later was essentially worthless to Danielle and her family!
This was the final straw for Danielle. She’d been dealing with this pesky timeshare for over two decades. Enough was enough! Danielle began researching ways out of her timeshare, but many of the timeshare cancellation teams had fees and services comparable to that of the timeshare companies themselves!
One day, though, Danielle saw a commercial on television for Wesley Financial Group, LLC (WFG). After some further research online, Danielle decided to reach out to us here at WFG. Danielle was very diligent and stuck with WFG along this grueling journey. Her timeshare cancellation took almost four years, which is much longer than the average length of time it takes to cancel a timeshare. There were some difficult details to work through in her particular timeshare, but we are so grateful and honored to have joined Danielle in this journey. After all this time, Danielle is finally timeshare free!*
