At Wesley Financial Group, we do everything in our power to help victims of timeshare fraud. Although we are leaders in the timeshare cancellation industry, it hasn’t always been a straight and narrow path. We’ve had to climb mountains and had our fair share of difficult forks in the road, yet we’ve overcome them. We’ve remained steadfast in our belief that those who have been taken advantage of by the timeshare industry deserve to cancel their timeshares. We do everything in our power to help our clients. Our President and CEO, Chuck McDowell, has been through the gamut as well. This is our story about the Wesley Financial Group lawsuit, how we prevailed, and how we continue to still help victims of timeshare fraud today.

A Sudden Realization: Taking Good People For a Ride

Our President and CEO, Chuck McDowell, worked for the timeshare industry before a sudden realization hit him like a ton of bricks. When Chuck McDowell first began working for Wyndham, a timeshare company, it seemed harmless. After all, timeshares were originally what they purported to be years ago. At the beginning of the timeshare industry, there were no tricks used to get people to upgrade their level of ownership or to purchase a timeshare. Over time, certain companies in the timeshare world began to change their game. They added in deceit and lies to get people to sign that dotted line.

Wesley Financial sets out to help good people get out of timeshare fraud. When Chuck McDowell began to realize all that was used to get innocent consumers to buy into these scams, he decided to leave the timeshare industry for good. He couldn’t continue to be a part of the lies and deceit. Rather than turn a blind eye to what was going on, he walked away. Not only that, he decided to do something about what he learned. He decided to stand up for people who have been taken advantage of by timeshare companies. The lies and deceit have to stop sometime, and someone has to step up to the plate to do it. Chuck McDowell was the person to do it.

The beginning of the Journey To Help Others


Once Chuck McDowell realized what was really going on during these sales pitches, what he and others were encouraged to do, he left. This was the beginning of his journey to help others. This is the time when Chuck McDowell left the timeshare industry and began his journey to help others in the timeshare cancellation industry. After joining the timeshare cancellation industry and advocating for those who had been taken advantage of by a timeshare company, Chuck McDowell was slammed with a lawsuit by the very company he used to work for, Wyndham. The Wesley Financial lawsuit had begun. This would be a heightened moment in time at which things would go to the point of no return. This would ultimately prove to be a final deciding factor and push towards what the timeshare cancellation industry stands for: helping others despite pressure from big companies to back down. The final outcome in this lawsuit would be representative of what Wesley Financial Group always fights for: the little guy.

Won’t Back Down: The Wesley Financial Group Lawsuit


After Chuck McDowell began helping out individuals who were dealing with timeshare fraud, he was slammed with a lawsuit by Wyndham. Wyndham alleged that he had shared trade secrets and attached multiple causes of action against him in the lawsuit. These included violations of the Tennessee Uniform Trade Secrets Act, unauthorized practice of law, intentional interference with business relations, civil conspiracy, breach of contract, unfair competition, procurement of breach of contract, violation of the Tennessee Consumer Protection Act and unjust enrichment. You could almost say that everything was alleged but the “kitchen sink”. This “kitchen sink” pleading wouldn’t stand with the jury.

Wesley Financial doesn't back down from timeshare bullies Now, Chuck McDowell could have settled. He could have thrown up his hands in fear, but he knew what was right. Instead, the case went through a jury trial. Within 20 minutes, the jury ruled in favor of Chuck McDowell on all counts. The US District Judge in the Middle District of Tennessee took further action by dismissing the case with prejudice. This means that the case cannot be brought back to court on the same claims. Furthermore, as Attorney Lyndsay Smith Hyde of McKellar Hyde law firm stated, “The fact that the jury returned a verdict so quickly makes it clear that the lawsuit was without merit.”Attorney Lyndsay Smith and her partner Andrea McKellar represented Chuck McDowell in the lawsuit.

As President and CEO of Wesley Financial Group, Chuck McDowell’s actions and steadfastness during the lawsuit represent what we stand for in the timeshare cancellation industry, and that is helping people out of timeshare fraud no matter who tries to frighten us.
