Samantha and John K. have had friends who were timeshare owners, but they never spoke much about it. Therefore, this couple was left in the dark. Once they were trapped in a timeshare sales presentation, they wished they had known more.
“My husband and I have always wanted to travel. It’s something we’ve never had the means to support. One day, the staff at the resort we stayed at booked us to attend a presentation to learn more about timeshares. We were curious, so we decided to go.”
Samantha and John’s dream of traveling pushed them to attend a timeshare presentation. However, the couple had no clue that the salespeople would weaponize this idea and use it against them.
Samantha and John thought it was an educational presentation. Because of this, the couple shared their upcoming retirement plans and dreams of traveling across the globe. While it seemed innocent, these became vital selling points used by the brokers.
“While we were curious about timeshares, we weren’t thinking about making a purchase at the presentation. Their staff, however, made several convincing points.”
The salespeople promised boundless vacation opportunities, which were impossible to turn down. Not only that, but they framed owning a timeshare as being one of the best investments for retirees. Samantha and John were still hesitant, and that’s when the staff gave the couple a deadline.
“By the end of the presentation, which was three hours later, they implied the deal was only available that day. They kept pushing us to buy, and by this point, we were worn out from all the talking. We agreed to the purchase because we thought our dream of traveling more would come true.”
“We got tired of our timeshare fast. Most of what the salespeople told us were lies! They promised us the ability to travel to exotic locations like Hawaii and Europe, but we never could. They also failed to mention that the annual maintenance fees go up every year.”
The pair felt embarrassed that they fell for such a scam.
Samantha and John decided they had enough and began looking for ways to get out of it. In due course, they came across Wesley Financial Group, LLC (WFG), one of the leading companies in the timeshare exit industry. Albeit, the journey here was not easy.
“We were looking for help for about ten years. I tried to sell it back to the resort, but they declined. I spoke with real estate companies, but they couldn’t help either. And timeshare resale companies were just as bad as the timeshare staff. Then, I heard about WFG one day while listening to the radio.”
Samantha and John’s journey to timeshare freedom became attainable. As soon as they qualified for WFG’s services, the staff worked for six months until the couple was free from their timeshare nightmare.*
“My experience working with WFG was awesome! Every person was professional and caring. They updated us the entire time.”
