Charlotte loved being a nurse, mother, and wife. She and her husband moved from New Jersey to California to raise their only daughter, Kate. One summer, Charlotte and her husband returned to the New Jersey area to visit friends and family. While walking down the boardwalk, they were approached by an individual offering alluring gifts if they'd tour a resort. Seeing no real downsides at the time, they decided to tour the resort and attend a presentation afterward.
"The presentation was 90 minutes," said Charlotte. "We had never heard of timeshares, so we went. We got a tour and some gifts that I don't remember at this point. We were taking vacations pretty often at the time, which is why we thought a timeshare would be a good idea.
They made it seem simple and said that it would be easy to sell later if we ever needed to. They never told us it would cost additional money to switch to a different location or how hard it was to book popular locations. I later found out it would take at least a year's notice to book these spots."
At the moment, they didn't see much downside to purchasing a timeshare, despite feeling pressured into the deal by their salesperson. Charlotte and her husband believed that the timeshare would work out in their favor.
In one instance, Charlotte's daughter Kate had successfully reserved the timeshare but found the accommodations to be subpar. With such limited options and terrible accommodations, Charlotte soon found out why selling her timeshare would be nearly impossible.
The unfortunate passing of her husband in 2010 put Charlotte on a tight budget. With limited income during her retirement, she found it challenging to keep up with her timeshare fees. Furthermore, the annual fees kept increasing!
"I have been struggling to live off my income since retiring. My only income streams are Social Security and a small pension," said Charlotte. "I haven't taken a vacation in years except for a trip back east to memorialize my husband."
Charlotte felt hopeless. Her main worry was for her daughter, Kate. If Charlotte didn't end the timeshare, Kate would be stuck with it upon her passing.
One day, Charlotte saw a television commercial for Wesley Financial Group, LLC ("WFG")*. She decided to call WFG and see if she qualified for the company's timeshare cancellation services.
Upon qualification, Charlotte worked diligently alongside WFG to cancel her timeshare. After 18 long months of hard work, Charlotte was finally relieved of her timeshare!*
When asked about her experience working with WFG, Charlotte said the company's prompt responses, good advice, and friendly staff ultimately helped her get out of her timeshare!
Charlotte trusted WFG to help her escape her timeshare, just like thousands of other families have so far. Still, she's certainly not the only innocent person deceived by timeshare companies. Thousands of unsuspecting people are lured into timeshare agreements every day. If you or anyone you know wants to cancel your timeshare, please contact Wesley Financial Group at (800) 425-4081.
