Timeshares are typically sold off to people who think all their vacation dreams will now come true. This type of thinking is to no fault of their own, but that of the timeshare companies instead. The salespeople of these companies are trained to use deceitful tactics that render devastating financial situations for most people.
This is exactly what happened to Gracie and Matthew S., who now have decided to share their story with us all. Below is a firsthand account from the couple, and we hope it will continue to enlighten more of the wrongdoings taking place in the vacation industry. Names have been changed or redacted due to privacy concerns.
“When we first purchased our timeshare, we thought it would be a good investment for our family and friends to enjoy our vacations together. But after a few years, we realized that we had made a bad choice investing in it. We were told that we could take a vacation whenever we wanted but that wasn't true. My husband and I became tired through the years because we just wanted to take a vacation but never could.” -Gracie
Having a vacation property, one would think that being able to take vacations would be a pretty high priority. That doesn’t seem to be the case for many timeshare properties though. We hear countless stories every day from timeshare owners saying it’s simply impossible for them to make use of their timeshare.
“The only issue we ever had was a big one, it was not being able to go on our vacations on the dates we chose, despite paying way more than enough money to do so. We contacted the resort for help and they just pressured us into purchasing another timeshare. They said by doing that, we would be able to stay anywhere whenever we wanted. They even threw in another perk and that was our maintenance fees would be waived for the next year.” -Gracie
Well, it turned out this second timeshare purchase was filled with as many lies as the first one. Not only did Gracie and Matthew still have trouble with booking their timeshare, but they also received a bill for those maintenance fees that were supposed to be waived and now with late fees too.
“We were not happy with the way either of our experiences went with the resort salespeople. We were lied to on several different occasions and now it was really beginning to cost us. With two mortgages to pay for and the maintenance fees only getting worse, it was too much. All the money we were giving to them could have been used to help our children’s future. We were nearing retirement also and we just could not fathom how we would be able to afford it all.” -Matthew
Gracie and Matthew were ready to completely get out of their timeshare agreement by now, but they knew their resort would be of no help with this endeavor. So the couple went out on their own and found credible and reliable help for a situation like this. They called Wesley Financial Group, LLC (“WFG”), which is one of the leaders of the timeshare cancellation industry.
With the help of WFG, Gracie and Matthew were finally feeling good about their future. Not only were they able to terminate their timeshare agreement, but the couple was also relieved of $23,000 worth of timeshare mortgage debt.* Gracie and Matthew are happy they no longer have to stress about their timeshare and can just focus on spending time with their family.
