Warning to all Bally's members:
Bally's Total Fitness personnel are allowing criminals to enter the building and access to their locker rooms.
Once the thieves have entered the locker rooms, they remove your lock and steal your personal belongings, including your wallet and keys to your car!
According to the Novi and Bloomfield Hills Police Department-Bally's has had this exact same crime happen at several of their locations in MI, including Bloomfield Hills, Novi (2 times in 48 hours) and the Briarwood facilities.
However, Bally's continues to refuse to warn their member of this very targeted criminal activity.
The criminals who stole my personal belongings from my locker and vehicle then went on a nationwide spending spree with credit cards, bank info etc., in excess of $23k in damages.
The Bloomfield Hills police and Novi Police both have their detectives working on the cases at this time but have little to go on.
Managers at each location have not yet ruled out the potential of this being an inside job and continue to refuse to install any security provisions which may have thwarted this criminal activity!
I am aware of two attorneys presently preparing suit against Bally's for violation of it's members rights to privacy and jeopardizing it's member's safety.
Bally's refuses to do the "Right Thing" and reimburse their members for any losses associated with these crimes committed in their clubs. I am sure they will exhaust tens of thousands of dollars in attorney fees to defend that which they are already guilty of.
Bally's is sending a clear message to their members- They do not care to protect the very asset which continues to keep them in business, their members!
