Peak Fitness / Ripoff/Thieves
OK people...here's the deal. I completley agree with you. Hope you have a moment to read all this. I joined Peak Fitness in NC when me and my husband moved there from TN. I signed a year contract. I joined on Jonestown road where b4 I signed I asked the Manager "Emily i believe" if they took the payments. I was lied to. She said they took out the payments. ( I had previously had an issue with canceling a membership in TN) I signed the agreement. Stupid. Not until i go to cancel (my hubby was being transferred to Gainesville, Ga) Did I even find out that I had to deal with ABC financial. Whatever. I call ABC ell them I am moving. There is no Peak Fitness nearby, and that I needed to cancel. They said I had to send proof that I had moved (i.e lease agreement/utility bill) I thought fair enough.Then I am told it will take between 60 to 90 days to cancel. WTF! But hey I am just trying to cancel. I agreed. The guy Jamal at ABC said I have to send a registered letter w/ proof. I said well I am at a fax machine Can I fax it. He said sure. He said if there was any issue that I would be contacted and told what to do next. I said okay thanks for your help. I faxed the lease /letter. Here comes June. I am doing bills and realize there are charges on my credit card ( I had recently paid off) for May and June. I call ABC. They tell me that they never received the info. I said well I am sorry that mistakes happen. What can WE do to ix it. I am told nothing! I sent the lease again clearly stating when I moved in the apartment. January of 08. This is August and I am STILL dealing with this. I even offered to pay the extra month left on my membership. (Wouldn't have been canceled till April, membership should have ended in May anyways) Now they say I owe for a month to month deal that I was NEVER informed about. I am refusing to pay that. I haven't lived near those gyms in almost a year. I say to myself.. If ABC won't help Surely the guys at Peak will. they Know me and Know that I have moved. WRONG. Took nearly two weeks to get ahold of this guy named Brent at Robinhood I believe. I Finally got ahold of him on day 14 of calling on the 5th call. WORTHLESS..refused to give me a corporate number. i found a number on the BBB site and called it. The lady there "paris" is actually very helpful. She has even told me to fax it to her personally and she will give it to someone there. I am having that faxed today, and I have also written an email to a lady named Nicole Miller. I also sent a registered letter stating all this I have told you and more with the proof of my move. ABC keeps telling me that it will go to collections. I told them I didn't care. If I ever needed credit I would take proof of everything I am saying and nobody would count it against me. I am hoping that I am taken to court. If you look up Peak fitness /abc financial you will find nothing but complaints and lawsuits! DO NOT JOIN THIS GYM!!!
