About 2 months later, I obtain a costs for $1300. I quickly phone the company, and they say I authorized up for a non-cancelable 3 season plan with the gym. I advised them, no. I didn't. So the man I was communicating to started crying at me, contacting me a dickf**k (among other things), and stuck on me.
The next evening, I went there to get a content of the plan. Extensive account shorter, I nicely requested for the plan and the supervisor (huge, bodybuilder type) got in my experience, vulnerable me, and advised me to get out or he was contacting the officers. I quickly remaining, referred to as the officers, and they supported me there while I got a content of the plan. Here's where it gets useful.
The man that authorized me up had authorized me up for Several years on the plan, AFTER I LEFT THE GYM. I was mad. I referred to as the regional information, revealed them to the lawyer common, and revealed them to the Better Enterprise Business.
Thankfully, after a couple months, I got a effect from the lawyer common saying however taken treatment of it, and had a fax from Premier's company supervisor saying she would stop the plan.
