L.A. Fitness Illegally Charged Its Customers Without Seeking Their Consent
Gym company L.A. Fitness in a class action lawsuit, is accused of illegally charging one of its customers for membership fees even though the membership was already canceled by the customer.
Gym Members Accuse L.A. Fitness Of Violating The Law
The latest class action lawsuit against L.A. Fitness is filed by complainant Zolton Nagy arguing that the gym company has continued to illegally deduct membership fees on his bank account via EFT or electronic fund transfer.
Nagy found out that L.A. Fitness has been automatically charging his bank account via EFT with another gym member’s account after the company mistakenly linked their information to Nagy’s bank.
The unrelated L.A. Fitness gym member even reportedly ended their gym subscription long before the incident.
This led to L.A. Fitness illegally continuing to charge Nagy from his bank account without any prior notice, which he argued is tantamount to violation of the law. On their end, the gym company agreed to only give a partial refund as it backed down on the idea of paying the remaining balance.
He reportedly asked for a full refund, yet the company has not responded to the request as of writing.
