Planet Fitness of Canton sent the cops after me because of a credit card snafu, where Planet Fitness screwed up and said I owed $20.00, and from what everybody knows, the monthly bill is only $10.00.

In the morning of June 18, 2013, I came into the facility, provided my identity code, and like always, stowed my gym bag in the locker room and went back to work out after having driven a couple miles to do so.  One of your clerks said I had to leave the facility because I owed $20.00, even though the Membership Dues are $10.00.  I told her I felt it was probably just a “credit card snafu”, that if she would call Corporate, I am sure we could work it out.  She requested I leave and I said no, let’s just work it out.

Instead of working it out, some minutes later she approached me again and said I would have to leave.  I again reiterated that it is probably nothing more than a credit card matter and that I have been paying regularly since day one.  She asked me to leave and I said no because I just wanted to finish my work out.  I again told her to get a hold of corporate so we could work it out.    

I don’t know if she called Corporate, but SHE CALLED THE CANTON POLICE DEPARTMENT ON ME.  Although the police officer acknowledged that it was just a civil matter, at the Officer’s request, I did grab my gym back to exit.  Upon leaving, I gave the clerk a different phone number to contact me so that it could be worked out. 

I went home, showered and changed instead of doing so at the facility, and then dropped back at Planet Fitness on my way to work.  It was at that time that I advised Clerk that I had been paying regularly and showed her my last two credit card statements for April and May in which payments were made at about the 18th of the month. 

Upon arriving at work, I checked with my credit card company and was advised because it had been subjected to breach of security, it was only good for an additional year and was still being utilized by Plant Fitness.  Apparently when the year expired, the last credit card payment was rejected because of this “snafu”.  The clerk had told me that the amount due was $20.00, even though it is a monthly fee of $10.00.  I immediately reinstated my membership through another credit card, and therefore, resolved what I thought was from the very beginning a “credit card snafu”.

Subsequent to arriving at work, I received a call in which Planet Fitness Canton voided my credit card payment.  A woman from Planet Fitness claimed that they had to call the police, which I believe to be totally untrue,  extremely overreacting by the company, inappropriate, and rather laughable that you would “sic cops on members” because of a minor credit card dispute.  It was embarrassing because friends and neighbors were in attendance at the time all of this occurred.

Instead of working this matter out with a long term member, Planet Fitness chose to disregard good customer relations and “sic the cops on a member!”

Ask to leave

AUTHOR: Tyg - ()

 Hey reguardless of if it was a SNAFU, you were asked to leave and you ignored the demand. It doenst matter if it was ONLY $20. You were asked to leave and ignored the demand. SO yep cops called on you. You probably would have gotten a lot farther had you complied with the original request, but you like many other consumers have that self-entitlment attitude. As demonstrated by your lack of ability to follow simple comands and continued doing as you pleased. If you asked someone to leave your home and they did not, wouldnt you also call the police.

They have rules and policies to follow if they want to keep thier job. In this case, you refused to comply with a command of a representative of the owner of that property. So the police were called. Had you gotten up and left then returned when there was someone to assist you the cops wouldnt have been called on you. But yet again the self-entitlement attitude of the american consumer kicked in and you refused. Oh you just drove ALL THAT WAY!! You werent going to leave until YOU had decided YOU were going to. This isnt a ripoff report, this is a self entitled a** who got what he deserved.
