Advocate Financial Services – Update 2022

Advocate Financial Services was originally established in Fort Lauderdale. Our team discovered an interesting website from the company. It claims it does not represent a law company or is a legal firm, but that it assists individuals who have been misrepresented by timeshare companies. Advocate Financial Services will use the Consumer Protection Law to help you exit the timeshare contract. Advocate Financial Services website states that common misrepresentations and deceptive sales practices include: “Was told that the “tour”, which was for 90 minutes, would be completed in the morning, afternoon, or night. Aggressive sales tactics used after multiple rejections of sales representatives’ offer to purchase timeshares, are considered unlawful pressure to force a person into performing an act that he or her ordinarily would not do. Conveyed purchase is considered an investment since timeshare can be sold or rented out for profit. It was explained that the offer would only be valid for a day and that the timeshare would not be made available to the public.

We also found interesting information on Advocate Financial Services’ website about testimonials. The website featured more than video testimonials. It also had audio-recorded testimonials and authentic hand-written testimonials. This information shows that the company believes in their products and clients. The company also provided two images that show the significant awards they have received under their credentials page. The 2015 Financial Service Provider Of The Year award was one, while the Fort Lauderdale Business Hall Of Fame was the other.

The company doesn’t provide any cost information on its website. This will only be determined after a consultation with them. Advocate Financial Services also has a $50,000.00 Insured and Bonded ‘surety bond’ that guarantees the services of clients. This is a unique feature as most timeshare exit companies don’t offer a surety guarantee. Advocate Financial Services did not mention the processing time or the cost, which is common in the timeshare industry.

Advocate Financial Services Around The Web

Advocate Financial Services claims they have an A+ rating but when we visit the Better Business Bureau website we discover that the business isn’t ‘BBB Accredited’ and only 2 reviews with 3 stars. Advocate Financial Services is a 7-year-old company. Why do they have only two reviews? Is it possible that they bought the business from another person or transferred the domain? We dive into the reviews and find one review that states that the service representative was rude and disruptive over the phone. This may be an issue for some. There weren’t any TrustPilot or Yelp reviews.

My Timeshare Advice Rating

Our team rates Advocate Financial Services 2.5/5.0 on Rating. This score is based on Advocate Financial Services  not having a 3-star customer rating with the Better Business Bureau, and not being accredited to the Better Business Bureau. Timeshare scams can be avoided by doing thorough research on a company before you work with them.  Also, read through detailed reviews before you choose a timeshare exit firm. Because they are commission-based, prices can be negotiated. Remember to always protect yourself first.
