In June of 2009, my friend and I were at the Square One Mall in Saugus, MA and were stopped by some guys who had a kiosk for the purpose of getting members to East Shore Athletic Club. They offered us a good deal for 12 months, and we signed up. However, the salesman never asked for a credit card. Said we don't need one.
We signed the agreement and there were no payment methods listed on the agreement. It only stated the monthly price ($29.99 a month) and the typical disclaimers, etc.

Well, we were excited with the offer and went on our way.
I never went to the gym, but last week I received a letter from them claiming that I owe almost $300 in membership dues. And they enclosed a copy of the signed agreement. GET THIS: Someone wrote a credit card number on it, authorizing it to be billed monthly.  I don't even use credit cards!
I am thinking that the salesman was trying to get commission and listed a false CC number on my membership agreement.

I called the gym and was told that the lady in charge of billing was not there. I have not yet been able to reach her.
I would stay away from this place.
