Timeshare Horror Stories
We’ve all heard them, timeshare horror stories that scare all of us back into inaction. On one hand, we need to find a way out of these always increasing timeshare maintenance fees, but there are so many different stories out there about how dangerous and risky going with a timeshare resale company is that it makes you not sure of anything anymore. What is the answer?
So, you are one of the unlucky few who purchased a timeshare years ago when the economy and the timeshare market were both going well and now you have no idea how you are going to be able to afford the timeshare pricing any longer? Or, maybe you are one of timeshare owners who have a timeshare inheritance, not even having a choice in the matter? No matter how you got your timeshare, right now is not a good time to be in ownership of anything that you don’t need or don’t have the time to even use. Timeshares are one of those purchases that people don’t buy, but are sold. In our defense, it’s not our fault; timeshare retailers will stop at nothing to get that timeshare deed in our hands, stooping as low as to lying and promising things they know are impossible. All of these things can have timeshare owners thinking, “How do I get rid of my timeshare? I need to sell my timeshare fast!”
There are many horror stories about timeshare resale scams out there on the internet, TV and radio and the numbers seem to be increasing day by day. As a matter of fact, the Better Business Bureau has said that currently, timeshare resale is one of the biggest scams going on in America today. Regardless of whether it’s in The Chicago Tribune or on CNN, timeshare horror stories are all over the news today explaining how hard it is to give back timeshare weeks. There is the story about the woman who received a call to her home from a timeshare reseller who promised he had a buyer lined up who wanted to buy her timeshare for her, all she had to do was pay a small upfront fee of a thousand dollars. That woman never heard back from the resale company and every time she called back, she only got a voicemail.
Then, there is the man who inherited his timeshare and thought that it was a timeshare investment and could pass it down to his children before quickly realizing that all the associated fees were going to cripple his family financially. He signed a contract with the timeshare resellers and paid out $1,500 and was told that he was about to make a huge profit, even though he couldn’t sell his timeshare for a dollar. Excited, the man gave the “reputable” company paid the upfront fee and waited by the phone to hear that his timeshare had finally been sold as promised. Instead, he received another call saying that he had to pay another $800 for listing fees, but that they definitely had a buyer for him. That man still has his timeshare today and unfortunately paid out on two separate occasions. One thing he has learned it that there is no best way to sell timeshare weeks because it is simply too difficult to do so. Even trying to donate timeshare property can be nearly impossible as well.
