I have a contract with World Gym that I thought expired two years from my sign up date, which was in January 2004. I was under the impression that after the contract expired I would have fulfilled my obligations to World Gym.
However, because I was not paying attention to my credit card charges, I later found that I was getting charged still, though my two year membership expired. My contract didn't say anything about automatic renewal, but that's what they did, and in my opinion they did it illegally.
Feeling hopeless, and not knowing what to do, I thought I would try to stick out the second round of "forced" illegal membership. The times that I tried to speak to someone by phone at World Gym. I was told that this person wasn't available. My not following up cause me to just try and deal with it by forcing myself to go. But, like times before my schedule made it impossible for me to workout.
So, I was trying to wait out this second round and cancel right before they renewal my contract again. But, enough is enough!!! I got wise and did a Google search with the information provided on my credit card statment. Came up with the web address for ASF International.
The website's home page was just info about making payments and a section where one could log in using their World Gym account number. After I logged in I was shocked to see that I'm signed up as a member of World Gym until December 31, 2039.
I understand this is what happens when your passive and don't actively pay attention to important things. But, I'm done with being taking advantage of!!!
Something got to give, because ASF International got to go!!!!
I wrote this to back up the other claims about ASF International and World Gym.
