Here’s the situation. My friend joined a health club almost three years ago. He signed up for a two-year membership, and set up payment by automatic draft from his checking account.
Anyway, after the two years, he decided he didn’t want to continue being a member. He received a letter from the health club stating that if he no longer wanted to be a member, he only had to call in and state as much, and the automatic drafts would end. This he did.
So, the other day he notices on his bank statement that the health club is still withdrawing 30 some dollars a month off of his account, and has been doing this monthly.
Phone calls got him nowhere, as apparently the contract he signed stated that the membership could only be cancelled in writing. What really sucks is that he was kinda thinking about joining the health club again, but has naturally not gone in the past ten months thinking he was no longer a member.
So what can he do? Anyone have any suggestions.
