Gold's Gym / they will bump up your membership dues

I had been a member of Gold's Gym for 4 years paying an annual fee upfront to reduce the cost of membership. Then they came out with the $19.95 a month plan. You pay a around $300 up front but then $20 forever after that. I plan on being an active gym member for the rest of my life so this plan made sense especially since 24hour Fitness has a similar plan. Well, to make a long story short, after the first year, they bumped up my monthly payments anyway without giving me notice. When I called to complain to the general manager, I was told, "It's not my decision to make and it's out of my control." Then, I canceled my membership but they charged me for 4 months afterwards! They are total scammers. I would rather pay a little more than support unscrupulous business practices. It just encourages them when we continue to do business with them no matter what they do to us.
