We got suckered in with the "Crazy Cheap Web special". Unfortunately, once you get there, and every meeting after that, they are working on selling you a monthly membership. They start with sticker shock. "Oh, well this class is actually a couple hundred per month". Then, knowing you're not going to pay that much, it's "oh, well how much do you think you can pay?" As they continue to talk, things get a bit confusing. They start talking about a down payment (like a thousand bucks or something outlandish like that). Then before you know it they say, "well you can just pay three hundred, and that's a hundred a month for the down payment"(confusing is how they play with you). "That'll be your monthly payment". Nope, after three months it jumps up to 125$ per month.
Next, the cancelation requirements. We didn't want to sign the contract with our credit card to this shady looking business (dirty floors, ripped up furniture) because were going to be moving in three months. That would conflict with the one year contract they have you sign (with your credit card number), OR anyones' credit card number (more about that later). Well, "you can cancel after three months, just give us proof that you've left the state". Now it gets tricky. I signed the paper, not my wife. (shouldn't make a difference, right?) Oh, but no. ASF (their cut throat billing partners) won't let you out of the contract unless you send them just the right piece of information. When we moved, we put the utilities in my wifes' name. They wouldn't take her information, verifying that we moved (LOL, they had no problem using her credit card though!) Oh, and there's a 50$ dollar cancelation fee (guess they just forgot to mention that)
In the end, we ended up paying a $300 down payment, 125$ per month (not the 1OO$ we agreed upon) a 50$ cancelation fee, and 250$ for a class that were not even in the state to take.
They are in partnership with ASF International. (a martial arts billing company) Many people have been scammed and ripped off by this company. See here:
Stay away from this company, you'll get burnt!!!
