Timeshare Preyed Upon 81 year-old Man, And Pressured Him To Purchase Timeshare

Tyrone attended a timeshare presentation with no intention of buying a timeshare. He is 81 years-old and had no need for a timeshare. After being in the presentation all day long, and holding his ground, he finally broke down under the extreme pressure he received all day from the sales reps. Due to the time of the day, the reps wanted to go home and Tyrone felt forced to sign the timeshare contract. 


Since purchasing, he has dealt with sleepless nights, high blood pressure and memory loss. His health is deteriorating and having this timeshare hang over him is causing even more stress. This timeshare has caused such a financial burden on him, it even helped lead to a divorce.


Tyrone reached out to us for help. He is worried his 4 daughters will be in debt from this timeshare if something happens to him and they inherit it. We told him that we will do everything we can to make sure that doesn’t happen. Tyrone is almost timeshare free, and we can’t wait until he is finally able to put the timeshare behind him. 


Many times we have seen the timeshare industry prey upon the elderly. The timeshare sales reps often know that elderly people will eventually sign the contract even if they have no need at all for a timeshare. Tyrone did not want or need a timeshare when he entered the timeshare sales presentation, but after a long day of extreme pressure to buy, they were able to get Tyrone to sign on the dotted line. Tyrone didn’t have the ability to travel or use the timeshare he purchased. This is elder abuse, and unfortunately, it is something we see all too often with timeshares. 


If you or someone you know has been subjected to elderly abuse when going through a timeshare sales presentation, reach out to us today to see if you qualify for our timeshare cancellation services.
