Timeshare Company Takes Advantage of Retired Couple

Eli and Josie N. were timeshare owners for years with no issues or complaints. That was until they finally gave in to the constant calls they received from the timeshare company to upgrade their unit. Since then they saw high increases in their mortgage and maintenance fees. 

With only a fixed income to work with, and much of that already going towards medical payments, owning a timeshare was significantly impacting them financially. Below is a written account from Eli and Josie on what led them to terminate their timeshare and why they chose us for help. Names of people and places have been changed or redacted for privacy reasons. 

“My wife and I were constantly contacted for years to upgrade our existing timeshare to a new company. After refusing and ignoring them for several years, we finally gave in and agreed to go listen to their presentation. While there, we met with two salespeople and we let them know from the beginning that we were retired and lived on a fixed income so could not afford the upgrade.”

Eli and Josie attended this timeshare presentation in hopes that they could put an end to the never-ending cycle of calls they get from the salespeople. They never thought they would find themselves in a worse situation after attending. 

“They continued to insist that it would be a great investment for our family in the future and they kept lowering the asking price. After over four hours in that room, we went ahead and agreed to the upgrade but were not given sufficient time to look at the paperwork. Despite spending hours on end there, they still made us feel so rushed and by the end of it we didn't know exactly what we had signed.”

This couple was already happy with their timeshare and did not see any reason for a change, but once they were in the same room as these salespeople, they were taken advantage of.

“The timeshare upgrade greatly impacted our lives and with both of us on a fixed income, it was very difficult to maintain all financial commitments. At the time, my wife was going through breast cancer and this whole situation with the timeshare only made things more stressful for her. Our maintenance fees shot through the roof after upgrading and we knew we couldn’t continue to do this.”

Once we got word of Eli and Josie’s situation, we were happy to step in and give them a helping hand. After qualifying for Wesley Financial Group’s termination services, the retired couple was able to see their agreement terminated and were relieved of $27,000 in timeshare debt also.* Eli and Josie can now focus their finances on their medical recoveries and do not have to worry about the stress of a timeshare along the way.

If you know anyone with a similar timeshare experience, please feel free to pass our phone number along to them. We’d love to see if they qualify for our timeshare termination services.
