Gym Membership / billing

1 Tooele, UT, United States Review updated:

A person Named Nancy Park called me and I explained to her that mu spouse and i are on unemployment and cannot affod any membership payments at this time and that we are continually harrassed by Paramount Acceptance to that end. Of course that made no impact upon her and I explained to her again that we as consumers have rights and that includes being harrassed via telephone continually. She bgan to lose her composure when I mentioned the Attorney Generals office and Federal Trade Commission complaints that were coming her way... people are suffering out here without jobs and important life matters, Golds Gym does not make it very far up the survival post when you are in a economy to these extremes. I have not wrked in a year my either, does that matter? Evidently we should dumpster dive for dinner and then go work out afterwards... :) Yummy... what pathetic Nazi-ism tactics...

    Haha i like your attitude towards these collection nazi's. As you can tell you were not dealing with intelligent human life. She was losing it because you forced her off the script that says abuse, you know like the tele - terrorists they are because you mentioned those governmental agencies. She was not expecting deal with someone who can stand up and is aware of their rights. Good job. Next time tell her you are recording the conversation, you have never seen someone take off so fast like a goose with a bell clapper on it's a$$.

    Do one better, read up on federal FDCPA. That's where your rights are enshrined. Next read up on cease and desist letters to collection agencies. Then send her a very nice one CMRRR and tell her you do not want to be contacted on the phone again and they should only write you if they need to say something. When you are ready to start paying call them and negotiate a settlement. Do not pay until you receive a mail confirmation of the amount, only then pay, by check or MO, no electronic access to your account or CC. Send that payment by CMRRR lest they feign amnesia. Make sure they agree and include the words "settled in full" in your agreement. Then keep those dox for life. Cos you know after so many years this scammer will sell your paid off debt and the next scammer will attempt to collect, again! And if that happens just send another CMRRR to that one with copies of the paid off debt. Tell them if they contact you one more time you sue easily, you don't need much provocation. Then sue even if per se. Just go to debtor boards dot com and see consumers winning nice amounts from these scammers (each violation is about $1500).
