Calvin and Samantha C. have been married for 30 years and have worked in law enforcement for even longer. Needless to say, they looked forward to a relaxing retirement. Alas, those celebratory plans were interrupted by the treacherous Timeshare Sales Industry.
When asked about their first encounter with a timeshare, here’s how Calvin remembers it:
“We stayed at a colleague’s vacation club, but when we arrived, we were informed that we have to sit through a timeshare presentation. It was required as part of the agreement. They told us it would be a 60-minute presentation, but it went well over 6 hours!”
What was supposed to be a nice weekend getaway turned into an extended and deceptive sales pitch. Looking back now, it’s obvious what the timeshare salespeople were doing. They attempted to exhaust the couple to the point where they’d agree to anything, such as a timeshare purchase.
Here’s Samantha’s perspective on the timeshare’s deceitful sales process:
“It was high pressure from the beginning. The whole time there, the salesman kept telling us how great of an investment a timeshare would be, and our upcoming retirement was a large part of their pitch. They made timeshares out to be like a retirement plans. It was a once-in-a-lifetime deal, and we needed to sign today.”
Calvin and Samantha left the presentation as timeshare owners, but they were not thrilled. There was a lot regarding timeshares they were unsure about. This uncertainty soon turned into a liability for Calvin.
“After buying the timeshare, we attempted booking a trip, but nothing was ever available. We felt like we had been swindled!”
For the next few years, Calvin and Samantha tried to make use of this expensive timeshare, but to no avail. As it turned out:
“Everything the salespeople promised ended up being a lie. We were told we could use the timeshare anytime and wherever we wanted. They said our children could use the timeshare and that our friends and family could too. This was not true!”
The vendors had framed timeshares as “a wonderful addition to retirement plans” during their sales pitch, but when asked how the timeshare impacted their retirement plans, Calvin had this to say:
“My wife and I were at the age of retirement and ready to do so, but due to this timeshare, we could not afford to retire. There were more expenses to having a timeshare. We had maintenance fees and club dues that increased every year. We had to use our retirement funds to cover the costs.”
This timeshare purchase turned out to be the opposite of what it was marketed. The couple was on their way to financial gridlock. When asked about attempts at getting rid of the timeshare before hiring Wesley Financial Group, LLC “WFG,” Calvin stated:
“I tried getting out of this agreement for several years. I contacted the resort early on and tried to surrender the property, but they said we could not do that. We searched all over for resources. That’s when we came across an advertisement for WFG.”
“Before calling WFG, we read all the information on them we could find. We saw many success stories. The former clients of WFG sealed the deal for us.”
Contacting WFG is the one decision throughout Calvin and Samantha’s entire timeshare experience they do not regret. That’s because, in less than a year, Calvin and Samantha were timeshare-free with nearly $25,000 of timeshare debt relieved!*
The staff of Wesley Financial Group, LLC “WFG,” strives to make a lasting impression on their clients, and when asked about their personal experience, Samantha admitted:
“Everyone at WFG was so helpful. They cared about getting us out of the timeshare. Thanks to them, we are free of this burden and can retire!”
Calvin and Samantha are not alone when it comes to disingenuous dealings with timeshare salespeople. Every day people fall victim to their deceptive tactics, and as a result, families are burdened with massive debt. If you know someone like Calvin and Samantha, give them our phone number below.
