All American Fitness Owasso, Ok Complaint - Scammed Into A 24 Month Contract
OWASSO, OKLAHOMA -- BEWARE: they will tell you that you can cancel the contract anytime, if you move, go away to school, or within the first 30 days, but their financial management group is a nightmare; here is my complaint filed with the BBB;
I had a family emergency that has caused me to move out of the state of Oklahoma, to the state of Ohio. I had joined a gym in Owasso, OK on 6/8/09, and moved to Ohio on 7/4/09. I immediately called the gym, told them of the family emergency and my current medical emergency and they assured me that if I moved more than a certain miles away, or if I cancel within 30 days .. June 8 to July 4 is less than thirty days .. also if I have moved more than 25 miles away .. ALL of these things I have done. They said they would take a copy of my ONE way airplane ticket, I provided them that, then they said that wasn't good enough .. I needed to be flying out of the USA or in the military to use that .. then they needed a copy of a new school sched on letterhead, college up here in Ohio doesn't start until the 23rd of Sept. I sent in my financial aid disbursement, and my welcome letter from Columbus State Community College in OH., this also wasn't good enough.
I also sent in proof of address change on bills, airplane tix, school verify. I OVER-VERIFIED my move, as far as I am concerned. When I called the actual gym, they said it was an easy process, since I had moved so quickly, due to a family health emergency. I can provide medical documentation that I have been diagnosed with a tumor in my abdomen, and doubled over in pain, to be taken by squad, along with ovarian cysts, I moved to Ohio, to get better health care, and moved to Ohio to help my Grandmother remain in her home after a series of strokes and the onset of Alzheimer's. I can provide all of this info to ABC financial, and I have provided all documentation as requested, then they add MORE CONDITIONS on to it ???
I feel they are dragging it out to make it longer than 30 days. I called on the 4th of July .. and told them, it might have even July 3rd that I called and sent in emails to get this straightened out. I am worried they are going to continue to withdrawal money. Please help.
