Stephen and Debbie bought a timeshare years ago and at first they did not have any issues with it. It was not until they were swindled into a number of upgrades on their unit that they began to see what was wrong with their timeshare agreement.
When this couple reached out to us at Wesley Financial Group, LLC, they were already going through a medical struggle that was greatly affecting their finances. With a global pandemic added on top of that, money was getting tight for Stephen and Debbie. Below is a short account from them on how they got involved with this timeshare nightmare and also how they got out of it. Names of people and places have been changed or redacted for privacy reasons.
“When we entered the sales presentation, we had no intention of buying a timeshare whatsoever. We were with two different salespeople and let me tell you, the pressure was intense in there. We were probably in there for well over two hours listening to them go on and on about the timeshare. By the end of it, we were both so confused and it took us a while to realize what had just happened. We actually bought a timeshare.”
Timeshare salespeople have a way of getting people to do something they know is not in their best interest. The deceitful tactics these salespeople use are wrong and almost always seem to set up families for financial failure down the road.
“The following years after buying the timeshare, we were met with unexpected medical issues. My wife was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and our ability to travel has been greatly decreased. We no longer were taking trips that were further than half an hour away. This left our timeshare completely useless. We were hoping to work it out with our timeshare company but they were no help.”
The timeshare company just left Stephen and Debbie out to dry. With expenses rising for the couple, they knew something had to change for them.
“Now within the past year, covid-19 had only made matters worse for us. It has affected us greatly in being able to cover all of our bills. Our timeshare was one of the larger costs out of all our bills and was the only one we made no use of. I called WFG and they were so great to work with in getting us out of it. When we explained our situation, they were happy to help and they moved so quickly also.”
We worked closely with Stephen and Debbie to make sure they were taken care of. At the time, they still had over $20,000 in timeshare mortgage debt and no way of paying it. Even during a pandemic, we were able to fully terminate their timeshare agreement, along with relieving them of the debt associated with it.* Gone are the days of stressing over timeshare bills for Stephen and Debbie as they can now focus on what’s important, their health.
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.
