Paramount Fitness, Athens, AL Complaint - Do Not Let Paramount Fitness Start a Bank Draft

Review by abbieroad on 2010-03-09
S.L.C.,, UTAH -- I have been trying for 5 months to get a bank draft to Paramount Fitness stopped, with NO success. In November, I talked to someone representing Paramount Fitness Finance. This person gave me an account number and told me to fax a letter to the Finance division of Paramount. I did as I was instructed. Now it it March and I am still having bank drafts. I called them back and explained the situation. They gave me a different account number and told me to email that I wanted to stop my bank drafts.
So once again I did as I was asked. I received an email that said they would have to draft again this month because they had to have a thirty day notice. Well, I emailed them and ask for an explanation, of which I have had NO RESPONSE. This is getting very frustrating. I suppose that the only recourse I have is to contact the BBB of Alabama. I can't seem to get through to them. As for the gym, I was NOT pleased at all. It was small and I always noticed an odor. BUT WHATEVER YOU DO---DO NOT LET THEM START A BANKDDRAFT.........YOU WILL NEVER GET IT STOPPED!!!!!!!! I HAVE LEARNED THE HARD WAY..........

Probably what you will have to do would be to close your bank account and open a new one so they would no longer have access to your funds. I also suggest consulting your bank to see what your options would be about chargebacks, having the charges reversed. With banks it is harder because the money is directly taken from you, this is why I usually recommend doing these soft of things with credit cards because charges can be disputed before they have a chance to affect you.
