Additional Notes

Complaint: I have requested to be reimbursed from the time that I sent in a letter showing that I am no longer using services and believe I signed a copy of their form at the time as well, this was October 2012. I kept calling and sent another email as my card was still being charged. I notified my card as well. I went in February to use a massage since they kept charging and a note was to be made again that I was no longer wanting to have the monthly service. I accepted a payment from Mar thru July based on ***** stating the Corporation would not reimburse any more because I went in February. A reimbursement was finally made in August, however after I was told it would be processed that day I had to call yet again to be reimbursed, over 22 days later. I have provided thorough documentation over three times showing that I requested cancellations over and over, yet this was not enough. I made a special trip to drop off documentation on the third time and signed their cancellation form again. I was told by staff that they had some trouble with prior managers and was apologized to. I remained very polite and nice to everyone throughout this process, but was continuously treated as though I was in the wrong. After all of this, they still charged my card again, for September 2013 after receiving a 5 month refund on August 30, 2012 and possibly October. Even though I did use massage in February, I feel that I am owed monies back to Oct 2012 less the February visit. The therapists are wonderful, underpaid, but wonderful. The paperwork tracking of their files, management and local ownership is lacking business etiquette, and could use some good old fashioned honesty. Be cautious of the monthly charges, and document, document document.

Desired Settlement: I would like to be refunded the most recent fee charged plus the ridiculous credit card fees that were charged for the hold and then late fee, as we do not use this card at all of $84. We now need to be refunded from Oct 2012 thru January 2012 which is from when I first cancelled contract and does not include my February visit, totally 5 months at $49, $245. 245+84=$329 via money order or certified check only. The credit card on file is no longer available.

Business Response:

****** ******

BBB Dispute #*******

We agree that there were difficulties and issues with the
communications with ******. 

In July we determined that we would make an exception and
refund the 245.00 in charges from July 18, 2013. The charges were in dispute
regarding the cancellation of the client’s membership.  The first time we attempted to refund the
charge there was an error. The error with the credit processing company was not
realized at that time.  The charges were
then credited back to the card on file on August 30, 2013.

The charge from September 18,2013 is completely our
fault.  We wanted to be sure that the
credit card credits from August 30 got properly refunded, and there was not
another error. We thought we had followed up and cancelled the account.  We did not realize until this dispute that
the charge had been processed. This was our fault and the $49.00 has been
refunded back to the original credit card when we received this complaint.

We are willing to work with your credit card company and the
BBB to see if we can lessen the hold and late fees.


Consumer Response: Complaint: *******

I am rejecting this response because:

I have worked with Massage Envy for a year on trying to get my account cancelled.  There was different information provided in regards to cancelling the membership.  I was told it needed to be in writing and so I sent a letter.  This was all during my pregnancy and was not able to follow up as I would have liked and assumed that the business had cancelled my account.  They did not always bill my card monthly on occasion it would come in a lump sum, thus not knowing that my account was not cancelled.
Then again, Massage Envy did not follow through with the refund until I follow up yet again. I am only willing to accept refund for the ridiculous credit card fees of $84 that were charged for the hold and then late fees, as we do not use this card at all. Then refund from Oct 2012 thru January 2012 which is from when I first cancelled contract and does not include my February visit, totally 5 months at $49, $245. 245+84=$329 via money order or certified check only. The credit card on file is no longer available.



Business Response: Response to *******:
On August 30, 2013 a refund of $245.00 was processed.  Please see the attached receipt verifying the refund was processed as requested
As stated in our previous statement we will be happy to contact her credit card company and work with them and the better business bureau to determine if we can somehow mitigate the $84.00 in late/hold fees the credit card company is charging.  In order to mitigate these fees we will need a copy of the credit card statement reflecting the charges.

I have attached a copy of the credit receipt. If you did not receive it please contact me.
