This curves franchise deceived me...they convinced me that the curves complete program was all inclusive with a meal plan, a trainer and access to the facility 6 days a week. One month into my membership they changed the opening hours. When they changed to hours I was not able to attend because I was working. After five months of not being able to have the access agreed to in the contract I called the manager ***** and told her I wanted to discontinue membership, she said I needed to bring in a written statement. I took the written statement in on July 26,2013. The payment was due to be manually removed by ***** on July 27,2013. In spite of the letter and the date ***** manually removed 56.00 from my account on July 30, 2013.I called her, she said number one the change in the business hours" was a good business decision" for the establishment and I needed to give them a thirty day written notice regarding discontinuing membership.When I dropped off the letter on the 26th the lady there on that Friday told me "it would be fine because ***** was off for the weekend and she had not removed the money yet" ***** was not apologetic.. she was on the right side of the contract.
