I signed a 1 yr contract with Anytime Fitness in Flat Rock, MI on Jan 1, 2008. A company by the name of APEX was debiting the fee from my checking account. The first 8 months was fine!! n ABC Financial took over the billing in Aug 08 and when it was announced at the club, I knew then there would be trouble. The first 3 payments they took were ok-I held my breathe once Dec got here-knowing I had only 1 month left on my contract–but shouldn’t have because that’s when they got me!! n On Dec 26TH, I was charged an extra 19.50 because ABC Financial claimed they tried to debit funds from my checking account and was denied by my bank twice, on the 20th and the 22nd. First of all, the 20th was on a Saturday, so I knew that was a lie from the start. n I called a rep at ABC who informed me the charge was not due to insufficient funds it was just because they tried to take the funds twice but wasn’t able to. I calmly told the rep “it’s mighty funny you so-called tried twice but didn’t seem to have a problem when you slapped on the fee of 19.50–you got that money with no problem””–she was silent!! n I filed a claim with my bank and am waiting for a response. I am letting the bank hash it out with ABC Financial. I will let you know what happens in 10 business days. In the meantime
I will never join a fitness club and allow them to debit my account. I will pay at the time I sign the contract. n ABC Financial is a scam and should be stopped
I noticed another person had the same incident occur and I am printing that up and sending in to my bank. LET THIS BE A LESSON TO SOMEONE ELSE!! nQuinnnBrownstown
