resolved to the customer's satisfaction
I have submitted this complaint because this business goes by several names. The owner's unscrupulous business practice is really hurtful considering that he professes to teach honor to children.
In my case, a free month trial of karate classes has turned into an outrageous drama.
When I first went in, their line is that they are very informal and attending the school is simply month to month, no contracts are involved. I was asked to sign an EFT form so they could charge my credit card for the one paid month and that signature was used/forged on a 36 month contract and over $3000 has been charged to my credit card.
Not liking confrontation and giving him the benefit of the doubt, , I made multiple attempts to resolve this but Mr. Agon avoided me like the plague. None of my phone calls or emails were answered. When I went in person, he assured me he was working on this but little did I know that he had actually sold the forged contract to an outfit called ASF International (ASF Int). It became clear that his ploy was to keep me hanging so that they could continue to bill me.
I began receiving collection notices from ASF International so I asked them to please stop. They informed me that according to the terms of my agreement, I had to pay. I've asked to see the agreement and they have yet to produce it.
Please, do not expose yourself to this headache and most importantly, do not expose your children to the influence of someone who has no integrity. Do not trust this man, he is a scam artist of the lowest kind.
If my nightmare is not enough to convince, please do your homework. This school is not part of any accredited martial arts organizations which is the reason they don't participate in competitions or martial arts events. Please keep this in mind because if your child earns a black belt from here, it is worthless. The sponsored 'events' for this school are at festivals, art shows, and farmer's markets where the children are used as props for propaganda to benefit the school.
Google ASF International (ASF Int), their billing arm, and see the hundreds of complaints against this entity.
I wish I had researched all this before even having set foot in this place.
