Karate America Jacksonville Beach Internet
I lived in Jacksonville Beach a few years back and was working second shift at McDonalds when I started getting stalked everyday by this guy. He followed me on the bus, at work, he would stand in line as if he was going to order something but would only get a cup of water and stare at me the whole time. He even tried to follow me home when I got off the bus. The police warned him to leave me alone and my family told him to leave me alone but he still kept harassing me so I went to Karate America to sign up for their Krav classes. The first time they give you a one on one self defense class and during that time I explained to the instructor my sistuation and my flexible work schedule so he told me they would work around my work schedule. He told that they had seceral classes but also would train one on one when needed. So I signed up for their 6 months course which was under contract and I thought everything was fine.
Well anyway, my stalker found out my work schedule so my job had to change my shift to the overnight shift. Come to find out Karate America only had one class a day and that was 7 at night. So I had to miss all my classes. My job couldn't put me on an earlier shift because my stalker hang around and it was getting hard to avoid him but Karate America would not work with me on anything. So after 3 classes I had to drop out. I talked to the krav instructor and he was nice about everything he told me to call the headquarters to let them know I had to cancel my membership. Karate America refused to cancel and told me I was under contract. I wrote to them but they claim they never got a letter. They reported me to MG credit and MG credit hassled and harassed me for the longest time. I tried to negoitate a payment process but they refused that. They said I had to pay the entire balance in full and that credit companies NEVER accept partial payments. Or work out payments. Which is a complete lie I found out..
Now its been 6 years and they are still In collection in my credit report as a balance of $1,060.00 (most of it is in interest) I don't mind paying for the classes I did attend but I'm not going to pay for a half year of classes I didn't attend wih the interest. Recently I called the Headquarters and the woman I talked to was nasty and mean and she didn't want to work anything out. Karate America is a scam and their classes aren't even that good. I would highly advise that people think twice before signing up with them and see those crooks for what they really are and run as fast as they can!
