American Settlement Solutions Review

Based in Springfield, MO, American Settlement Solutions is a timeshare cancellation company that promises legally-backed timeshare cancellation service. This company is owned Michael Miles who describes himself as a Christian that is committed to doing the right thing as a legacy for his children.
Miles also claims to have come up with a system that can terminate timeshares “100% of the time.” Nonetheless, we want you to discern fact from fiction and learn how much you can rely on this company. Thus, in this article, we have provided some key items of information to help you make the best decision.
- Offers Free Consultation
- Experienced professionals
- Absence of escrow payment option
- Absence of money back guarantee
American Settlement Solutions Timeshare Cancellation
A careful scan through American Settlement Solutions’ official website reveals that there is no comprehensive explanation of their cancellation process. Overall, they have not provided an adequate step-by-step insight into the timeshare termination procedures that clients can expect when they seek their service. This can be quite a letdown to a prospective client seeking to get that info through the website without wanting to make a call.
Nevertheless, there is some relevant information regarding their process. The company states that they have experienced professionals on standby and offer a free consultation service. We consider this quite promising and assuring. But one important question to ask: How well can you count on them? Promises are easy to make, but they are as equally easy to renege on!
For your information, specifically, American Settlement Solutions has claimed to have “a savvy team with extensive experience.” And what do they say this team will do? According to the information provided, the team is charged with carefully studying your resort contract, then identifying whatever options are available, and finally advising you on the right steps to take. What’s especially striking here is American Settlement Solution’s statement that they are ready and happy to offer this consultation service even as they know the final purchase decision is up to you.
They even go on to say: “Don’t let a bad deal continue to cost you your hard-earned money.” Elsewhere, they assert that their clients are “under no obligation to continue using [their] services after consultation.” These claims establish trust, yet one cannot jump to the conclusion that the company is worthy of being relied on.
It’s essential to note that the company has stated a condition for qualifying for their timeshare cancellation program. Specifically, they have explained that a qualified client is one who can be considered a “Timeshare Resort Fraud Victim” in the sense that such a client must have been taken in by certain “lies”.
What is, of concern here is that this condition begs the question as who qualifies as a “timeshare resort fraud victim.” Would this mean American Settlement Solutions is not for all disgruntled timeshare owners seeking solutions to their issues?
American Settlement Solutions Cost & Fees
Like many timeshare exit companies out there, American Settlement Solutions does not state any specific price for their services. Moreover, they have not mentioned any available payment options. So, conclusively, they do not use escrow. They have also not offered any money back guarantee. They do provide free consultation. Ultimately, for specific info on cost and fees, you might have to give the company a call.
To get the specific information about the fees and cost of hiring the company, if it does charge for its services, our candid advice is that you contact them via the contact links provided on the official website.
American Settlement Solutions Reviews
It is quite normal for companies to portray themselves in the best light possible. Tt is not surprising that this is what we find on the official American Settlement Solutions website. Starting with the homepage, the webpage content appears attractive and filled with words that assure an intending customer of a satisfactory service.
For instance, on the homepage, they make it clear that “your timeshare situation can be resolved without reselling your timeshare.” While this is agreeable, there are other claims that seem exaggerated.
A typical instance is found in the following statement: “Every day we are privileged to help someone else find a way out of their unwanted timeshare.” A critical look at this statement shows that this is hardly possible, reading more like a pushy sales tactic. Ironically, this is one of the things that American Settlement Solutions has flagged as part of the tricks often used in timeshare sales.
Importantly, we should add that there are several positive reviews found on the website. While there is one on the homepage, there are three more on the page specifically meant for “Testimonials,” with a 5.0 average rating. It’s also indicated that the three reviews were given two years ago. Names and pictures are included too. While all these suggest that the reviews might be real, you should remember that fabricating such things online could be easy with the right know-how.
In the same vein, the “Our CEO’s Story” page calls for some suspicion. Despite the moving and convincing story narrated by Michael Miles, we realize that what is written under his name is “Nationwide Settlement Solutions,” not “American Settlement Solutions”. Various sources have it that the company in review was once known as Nationwide Settlement Solutions, but had to tweak the name due to overwhelming bad reviews. Notwithstanding, it’s possible that the founder changed the company’s name for some good reasons.
Most reviews of this company suggest a high level of scam possibility. The BBB rating especially and some inconsistencies discovered and red flags. On the other hand, there are reports that this company has successfully brought many timeshare owners out of maintenance fees and mortgage. But would we recommend this company? Maybe, and maybe not.
There are also many publications on the company’s blog section that support the claim that the company is not likely to be an illegal company. You can hire the company for your timeshare cancellation if you find the above information convincing.
Based on everything noted above, you should be careful in dealing with this company. You might, in fact, just look for better options.
