I am a 19 year old female college student and I am in need of legal advice. In May of 2008 I went to Fitness USA in Southfield Michigan and tried out their free membership and worked with a trainer that day. I enjoyed the facility and the employees and I wanted to join. The employee informed me that I could join that day and if for so reason I wanted to cancel my membership I could do so within 30 days, so I thought that it was a great ideal to give it a shot and if I couldn’t maintain the membership, simply cancel it. About a week and a half later one of their representatives contacted me asking me about the membership and if I was enjoying it. I told the lady that unfortunately I would have to cancel it due to their closing times and my school/ work schedule.Yet, the still send it to col--- Collections. She said that it would not be a problem and that she would cancel out the membership for me. After about two months I noticed on my billing statements from the bank that Fitness USA was taking about $40 monthly from my checking account. So, I immediately went to the bank and cancel my account and opened a new one. Then I contacted Fitness USA and the rep from their company said that I never canceled within the cancellation period and that the only way I could get out was if I had a medical condition that was noted from the doctor. I told her that I spoke to someone from the company within the cancellation they said that the membership would be cancelled. She basically said that there was no way she could help me and if I didn’t pay it would be sending to collections for non payment. Of course I didn’t pay because I cancelled within the withdraw period and I received a letter from Nation Credit Corporations saying that I owe them 1,200 dollars. I was in complete shock!
