After buying a timeshare, Maria and her late husband made great use of it the first two years they had it. But then, the points started to go up and the fees started to increase. With four kids and the rising cost, Maria felt stranded.
The following is a first hand account of the negative timeshare experience that happened to Maria. Names of people and companies have been changed for privacy reasons.
“Things for us seemed fine at first. We used the timeshare the first two years from purchasing it. Then, the points were raised, but we were never notified. We found out when we tried to make a reservation and it was going to cost us over $300 to stay there. After that, life started to happen. With kids growing up and having busy school schedules it was hard to find time, let alone pay to go on vacation. Then, my husband became sick, so for the last seven years of his life he was bed ridden. Going anywhere for vacation was out of the question, especially with medical bills. I just could not see paying maintenance for a place we can't even use. We needed that money for more important things.”
Before being led into buying the timeshare, Maria remembers a few promises that the sales representatives made to her.
“They made it sound really fun, like it was a really exciting place. We were told our family would love it and were even shown all these cool amenities. Well once we started to use it, we realized you had to buy more to be able to use a lot of these things.”
Since her husband had since passed away, Maria has been looking for a way out of her timeshare that still costs her so much in fees every year. That’s when she saw an advertisement in a magazine.
“I remember before I called Wesley Financial Group, I called another company, but was very uncomfortable with their approach. When I called and spoke with your representative, I felt comfortable and she was very knowledgeable. She explained every step that would take place and gave me a lot of confidence.”
Though she did not have any timeshare mortgage debt, we were able to start the process of terminating Maria’s timeshare and eliminate her insane yearly fees. She is in the final stages of ridding herself of this financial burden and expects to be free of it very soon. When asked what she’s enjoyed the most about our process, Maria talked about the ease of it all.
“The peace of mind with every step is amazing. Each person I spoke to made me feel at ease. It was better than I expected. I didn't have the anxiety I had been feeling for so long regarding this timeshare.”
