Sometimes the stories I hear make me cry. Literally.
Earlier today, I received a call from an elderly couple who was convinced (duped really) to buy a timeshare. To help make the close many years ago, the salesmen offered them free gifts, including a fancy dinner and expensive bottles of wine. Essential facts, like exactly how maintenance fees worked, were left out of the presentation.
As we know too well, this elderly couple is not the first to get tricked into buying a timeshare. Millions of people a year get tricked into buying a timeshare. It starts with a presentation, then free gifts, then the aggressive close. The result is signed contracts good people feel stuck with.
On our call, I learned this couple invested in this timeshare nearly four years ago. I also learned they were victims of timeshare fraud.
When they signed up, they thought their maintenance fees would be about $500 a year. Of course, since then they have moved to north of $1,000 a year. It will only continue to go higher.
Their contract makes them feel as if there is no way out–they cannot even give it away, because no one wants those growing maintenance fees. Hard to blame them.
