Lonestar Transfer Review

Lonestar Transfer in Rockwall, TX is a timeshare exit company that distinguishes itself from other similar companies by offering both timeshare title transfer and timeshare mortgage cancellation services. In order to qualify for their timeshare title transfer services, the timeshare must be paid off in full. If it is not, then the customer must use the company’s timeshare cancellation service first before being able to transfer the title with the company.

Timeshare Title Transfer Service

Lonestar Transfer’s timeshare title transfer service is described in a straight forward manner on their website. It involves transferring a timeshare property title out of the customer’s name to a third-party acceptance corporation. In some states, such as Florida, it is illegal for a company to let a third-party acceptance corporation go bankrupt after transferring them a title. It is not verifiable whether or not Lonestar Transfer is involved with doing this in their timeshare title transfer services.

Timeshare Mortgage Cancellation Service

The timeshare mortgage termination service that Lonestar Transfer offers is also discussed on their website. The company mentions that sales staff often break consumer protection laws by misleading people or leaving out important disclosures when selling them a timeshare, which is grounds for contract cancellation. Lonestar Transfer recommends that one should not contact the timeshare resort directly when looking to break a timeshare contract because the resort could use what one says to trap them into their contract. However, some companies, such as Wyndham, have timeshare exit programs of their own, so in actuality, it is beneficial to contact one’s timeshare resort first when looking to get out of a timeshare commitment.

Lonestar Transfer’s Marketing Efforts

Lonestar Transfer heavily markets its services in advertisements on TV and radio shows, including Fox News, Fox Business, Sean Hannity, The Hugh Hewitt Show, The Michael Medved Show, KRLD 1080, WBAP 820am, 94.9 KLTY, 660 AM The Answer, and more. Such popular programs are unlikely to support an illegitimate business, so the fact that Lonestar Transfer is featured on them gives the company some credibility.

Lonestar Transfer Reviews

The Lonestar Transfer reviews are positive online. On their own website, they feature testimonials from happy customers, but the pictures of the reviewers are missing, making it difficult to determine if the reviews are real or not. Off of the website, though, reviews remain positive, overall. As of 1/15/2019, Lonestar Transfer has a 3.7 (out of 5) star aggregate rating on Google and a 4.8 (out of 5) star rating on Facebook. The company also has a 5 (out of 5) star rating on BBB, however there are only 26 reviews, and only one answered complaint, as of 1/15/2019.

Lonestar Transfer Cost for Services

The Lonestar Transfer cost is not available on the company’s website due to the individualized nature of the services they provide. However, one customer posted on July 27, 2016 on Redweek that the cost charged to her by Lonestar Transfer was $3,495. She did not specify whether this was for the company’s timeshare transfer or mortgage cancellation service. The best way to get an estimate of the Lonestar Transfer cost of services is by taking advantage of the free consultation they mention on their website.

Lonestar Transfer’s 100% Money-Back Guarantee and Concluding Thoughts

Lonestar Transfer also mentions a 100% money-back guarantee on their website. While such guarantees appear to provide safety to the customer, the best way to guarantee 100% protection from scams, which are rather frequent in the timeshare exit company industry, is to work with a company that offers a no up-front fee escrow payment option. No up-front fee escrow payment options allow for money to be placed in a third-party holding account that is only released to the business once they have successfully accomplished their services agreement. This is better than relying on a money-back guarantee because it does not allow a company to receive any money before their agreement has been fulfilled, giving customers protection if the timeshare exit company should go out of business or be unable to fulfill their promises for any reason.

Wesley Financial Group Review

Wesley Financial Group (also operating as icanceltimeshare.com), founded in 2012, is a timeshare exit company based out of Nashville, TN.

Reputation of Chuck McDowell, Owner of Wesley Financial Group

Chuck McDowell is one of Wesley Financial Group’s owners. Before starting Wesley Financial Group, McDowell worked as The Vacation Ownership Group’s Vice President, as stated by prnewswire.com. The FBI shut down The Vacation Ownership Group for fraud in 2013, as stated in this release by the court. However, The Vacation Ownership Group’s court sentencing hearings did not involve McDowell, and he may not have been employed with the company when it was shut down.

Chuck McDowell acts as the voice of Wesley Financial Group in commercials that the business runs to advertise its services. The ads feature real, happy clients, as opposed to paid actors, giving the company’s reputation some legitimacy. In one of these commercials, a court case that McDowell was involved in against Wyndham, a large timeshare company, is brought to attention. The lawsuit itself, however, did not involve the cancellation of a timeshare contract. It revolved around Wyndham accusing McDowell of divulging trade secrets. McDowell was found not guilty, and more information about the lawsuit can be found here.

Wesley Financial Group Reviews

Wesley Financial Group reviews online are positive, overall. The company has an aggregate 5 (out of 5) star rating on BBB, with 40 total reviews and 3 total complaints, all addressed, as of 1/15/2019. Their Google rating is 3.9 (out of 5) stars, and their TrustPilot rating out of 124 reviews is 5 (out of 5) stars, as of 1/15/2019. There is only one negative (1 star) review on Yelp from 2014 that speaks against the company (as of 1/15/2019.)

On their website, Wesley Financial Group features customer reviews in the form of video testimonials, which speaks highly of the company’s quality of service due to the time customers must put in to contribute a video review.

Wesley Financial Group Cost for Services

The Wesley Financial Group cost for their services is not disclosed online, due to timeshare cancellation services requiring individual consultations of each case in order to give a proper estimate of total fees. Wesley Financial Group does offer a free consultation according to their website.

Wesley Financial Group’s 100% Money-Back Guarantee and Concluding Thoughts

The Wesley Financial Group website also refers to a 100% money-back guarantee, implying that they charge up-front for their services. While the company appears legitimate, 100% money-back guarantees are not actually the safest way to protect customers from scams.

Within the timeshare exit company industry, there have been several cases of fraudulent companies taking their customer’s money and never accomplishing what they said they would do. It is always recommended instead to work with a company that offers a no up-front fee escrow payment option that allows the client to pay money to a third-party holding account that is released to the business itself upon the successful completion of the service agreement between the client and company.

Resort Release Review

Resort Release in Rockford, IL is a timeshare exit company that has been operating for 7 years and assists people with getting out of their timeshare commitments.

Resort Release Reviews & Reputation

The Resort Release reviews on the web are outstanding, with an aggregate 5 (out of 5) star review rating on BBB from 321 customer reviews, and only 4 minor complaints, 3 of which are marked resolved, and 1 of which is marked answered, as of 1/14/2019. The company’s rating on Google is 4.3 (out of 5) stars, and on Facebook, they also have a 5 (out of 5) star rating, as of 1/14/2019.

The company’s website also features a few video testimonials of happy clients, which speaks very highly of the company’s reputation due to how much effort such clients had to have put in to make a video about their experiences with Resort Release’s services. Additionally, Resort Release has Platinum ranking in their membership with the Rockford Chamber of Commerce, which gives credibility to the company, as illegitimate businesses usually are not involved in local associations. The business has also been awarded the BBB’s Torch Award for marketplace ethics.

Resort Release Cost for Services

The Resort Release cost is not available on the web, which is similar to other timeshare exit companies. Timeshare contract cancellation services are specialized, and each case is unique, so costs are usually determined on a case by case basis. This makes it difficult to provide information on such fees online. However, Resort Release does mention on their website a 100% price match guarantee and a free consultation call to provide an estimate of their services for your individual case.

Resort Release’s 100% Money-Back Guarantees

Resort Release also offers three 100% money-back guarantees. The first guarantees that, “your timeshare property will be legally and permanently recorded from your name of ownership,” per their website. It is important to note the use of the word “legally” here, as some timeshare cancellation companies use illegal methods for cancelling timeshares, and potential customers should be wary of this when deciding on which company to choose for the cancellation of their timeshare. Resort Release promises that if the timeshare is not cancelled within the timeframe determined in their services agreement, then the customer is entitled to a full refund. The second guarantee that Resort Release makes is that there will be no future fees on the timeshare charged to the customer upon the completion of the company’s services. The third guarantees protection of a customer’s credit score once enrolled in their services.

While these guarantees do seem to provide the customer with some protection, the best way to ensure complete safety from scams and fraud is to work with a company that offers a no up-front fee escrow payment option, where payment is placed in a third-party holding account until the success of the company’s agreement with the client, at which time the client’s money is transferred out of the holding account to the timeshare exit company. Working with companies that charge the customer up-front and directly for their services always runs the risk of the company taking the client’s money and never completing their services or going out of business and simply disappearing, which happens more than one may think in the industry.

Timeshare Exit Team Reviews

The Timeshare Exit Team reviews online are positive, overall. As of 1/14/2019, Timeshare Exit Team has 4 (out of 5) stars on BBB and TrustPilot.

Timeshare Exit Team Cost for Services

The company has a marketing budget that may be greater than any other timeshare exit business out there. The business’s large marketing budget might cause you to believe that they must charge a higher cost for their services than similar companies, but this should not be assumed to be the case. Timeshare Exit Team has a streamlined process for timeshare cancellation, which may allow for them to provide efficient services at a comparable cost to others in the industry.

The exact numbers of the Timeshare Exit Team cost are difficult to determine online due to the fact that fees vary depending on a variety of factors, including how easy the timeshare developer is to work with and the type of timeshare. That being said, the Timeshare Exit Team cost is more transparent than many other timeshare exit companies. While their free consultation is the only way to get a true estimate as to the cost of their services, a Timeshare Exit Team representative has quoted the average cost at $4,000, which can be used as a general guideline.

It is important to note that engaging in negotiations may also contribute to a lower cost for the company’s services. While it cannot be stated for sure, as a large company, Timeshare Exit Team may employ commissioned salesman that are given a monthly allotment of discount money that they are allowed to work with in order to close sales. You may be able to get a lowered price simply by asking. It never hurts to try!

Timeshare Exit Team 100% Money-Back Guarantee & Concluding Thoughts

Timeshare Exit Team also states that they have a 100% money-back guarantee, if their team should fail at cancelling your timeshare contract. While the company is a well-established one in the industry, working with timeshare exit companies that offer a no up-front fee escrow payment option that allows you to initially put money into a third-party holding account to be released to the business at the time of their successful completion of said services is always more secure than working with a company that charges you directly up-front.

Resort Advisory Group Review

Resort Advisory Group in Vista, California is a timeshare exit company that has been operating since 2011. This business varies from other timeshare exit companies because it focuses on helping timeshare owners that were deceived by the timeshare developer’s sales tactics to cancel their timeshare, instead of assisting anyone looking to cancel their timeshare contract, regardless of whether or not the contract involved any fraudulent misrepresentations. To note, Resort Advisory Group may be owned by the same group as Timeshare Compliance, although this cannot be legally stated as fact. Both Resort Advisory Group’s website and Timeshare Compliance’s website are hosted on the same server, and their blogs are authored by “Michael Santos.”

Resort Advisory Group outlines 7 steps for the process of timeshare cancellation on their website. The process involves first sending potential clients a booklet explaining what will be needed from them for a proper assessment of the timeshare contract to be performed. It is required for the booklet to be sent back with the proper information filled out in order for the group to begin working on the next steps for the cancellation of the timeshare. This shows effort on Resort Advisory Group’s part to carefully review each potential client’s case in detail before working with them, which appears a favorable sign towards their legitimacy.

The business’s website also includes a thoroughly detailed FAQ page. According to this page, the time frame for cancelling a timeshare is six to 12 months, which is similar to other timeshare exit companies. It is also mentioned on the FAQ page that in some cases, customers are eligible for a refund on the purchase of their timeshare. Recent Florida law changes have made obtaining refunds on timeshares very difficult to accomplish, so this claim is surprising and may be more fluff than anything substantial. Resort Advisory Group also claims on their FAQ page that some timeshare contracts will not hold in a court of law. However, the group also denies being a law firm, so it is questionable how the company knows what contracts will and won’t stand in court.

On their website, the Resort Advisory Group reviews are positive, mentioning stellar service and overall smooth experiences with the company. However, it is necessary to look outside of the company’s website to get a reliable perspective on what clients think of the business, as reviews displayed on a company’s own website may skew the company’s image to appear better than it actually is.

In the case of Resort Advisory Group, reviews posted outside of the company’s website are also positive, overall. There are only a few negative reviews, which claim that Resort Advisory Group uses robo-calling and ignores Do Not Call lists, but this is not verifiable. As of 1/13/2019, Resort Advisory Group reviews on Google have an aggregate 3.8 (out of 5) star rating, Facebook reviews have a 4.6 (out of 5) star rating, and the BBB gives them a 4.25 (out of 5) star review.

The Resort Advisory Group cost is not displayed through their website due to the group’s claim that each timeshare cancellation must be individually assessed for a fair estimate of the cost, which is a legitimate reason. The cost has not been appeared elsewhere online or by any reviewers of the company.

The company mentions a guarantee to refund fees if they are unsuccessful at cancelling your timeshare contract. This indicates that the group charges up-front fees in exchange for their services, as opposed to offering a no up-front fee escrow payment option, where initial fees are placed into a third-party holding account until services are successfully completed, at which time the payment is released to the business. While 100% money-back guarantees may sound safe, it is always risky to pay anything up-front directly to a business before the services promised are successfully accomplished. Paying up-front fees directly to the business could end in the company taking your money, then never fulfilling their end of the bargain. In recent times, there have been numerous accounts of just this happening with scam companies such as Resort Relief, Last Resort Fee, and Aconsumercredit, to name a few.

Why take a gamble when there are other companies out there offering no up-front fee escrow payment options?
