Viola and Adam S. were sold on the idea of a dream vacation promised to them by a timeshare company. After years of problems and rising costs, they realized that dream vacation was never happening. The following is a written account from the couple on how they originally got entangled in this timeshare mess and what they did to eventually get out of it. The names of people and places have been changed and/or redacted for privacy reasons.
“We were offered a free stay at a resort and in return, we were to give our time of one hour to hear about timeshare. Well, that turned into over three hours of our time. We were seen by several different salespeople, each one pressuring us more and more to make a purchase. They told us we had to buy that day because the price wouldn’t be locked in for the future, and they made it sound like such a great investment.”
Timeshare salespeople are not known to be the most honest people, and they also do not like hearing the word “no.” Add those together and you can imagine the high-pressured situation they must put people through with their sales pitches.
“After purchasing it, we found it very difficult to use and were unable to book a trip nine times out of ten. Sometimes when we traveled we had to stay at other resorts or hotels because our own timeshare was unavailable for us. We were constantly denied what we were paying so much for. And what made it worse, was the prices kept increasing too.”
What is the purpose of paying so much money for a vacation property that you cannot even use yourself? Viola and Adam became dissatisfied with their timeshare due to this and the increasing maintenance fees. So they began looking for a way out.
“Our timeshare company said we could sell it back and we contemplated selling it on the secondary market but were worried about it. We were unsure if we would still be attached to the deed if sold that way, and so we strayed away from that. But with the costs rising each year, we knew we had to figure something out.”
That’s when Wesley Financial Group, LLC received a call from Viola and Adam. After qualifying for our timeshare termination services, we were quick to help get them out of their terrible agreement.* Now Viola and Mike do not have the stress of monthly maintenance fees and unpleasant vacation experiences.
