The Ever So Common Timeshare "Upgrade"

After getting people out of their timeshare, oftentimes they like to visit our office and meet the people who helped them get out from under their timeshare burden. We have had clients fly from California to meet us and one woman even drove from Michigan. 

One of our client visits that sticks out was when a couple in their 80’s, Dave & Marie, drove from North Carolina to meet us. Their story was particularly difficult for us to listen to because they had been wronged so badly by the timeshare industry. 

They owed the timeshare $250,000 in mortgage debt and were paying $60,000 a year. The husband was a retired Navy Chaplain who served our country for 30 years. His entire Navy pension was being taken to pay the timeshare company. 

He and his wife wanted to plan a special get together for their 60th wedding anniversary, by having all of their family join them at the timeshare. The timeshare company told him he needed to be at 3 million points to be able to have his whole family come stay at the timeshare. Once he signed on the dotted line, he still needed to spend another $100,000 to get the units he needed for his family to all be there in Williamsburg, VA. 

He could have rented the same number of units directly from the timeshare company, without owning for $50,000; without being obligated to pay over a quarter of a million dollars for a year's mortgage and fees. 

This is what timeshare companies do to so many people. They prey on people who are already sucked into the timeshare industry and continue to put “upgrade” opportunities in front of them. This “upgrade” was not necessary, and ended up costing this couple even more timeshare debt.
