Additional Notes

Complaint: I arrived at Fort collins Club 5/30/2013 to put my membership on hold. I requested to speak to membership and was directed to the membership office. The person who greeted me clearly noted she was the membership person on for that day. I shared with her my need to put my membership on " Hold as of May 30th". She produced the form and informed me my membership was paid till the end of June and I should consider instead July 1 st as the start of the hold date. I responded by questioning this...I told her I believed June was not yet Paid....She responded by saying It WAS paid through June. She did not look anything up, that I was able to observe. I then agreed to July 1st based on the information she stated :she states "she was sure she knew the information to be correct". After I left the Club it bothered me, for a number of days, concerning the info:that the membership was paid :so I decided to not use the club during June just in case. I did not use the Club During June !!!!.. Later in the month I was contacted by the company who does their billing. I was told May and June were needing yet to be paid. I offered to pay May and not June due to the incorrect information given to me. I called the Fort collins Club to Clarify. The person answering the phone stated "I did NOT come in and speak to FCC staff". I was told the form was mailed in. I made other attempts to contact Fort collins Club and received similar responses. The last contact with them I went in and requested a copy of the form and requested the name of the person I spoke when the Form was initiated. I have not received a response from them. The Collection company reported to me that Fort collins has been slow and/or simply NOT updating them promptly as to payments received at the Club. This Happened with my April payment: Due to this, the payments appear deliquent when they are not.

Desired Settlement: 1) The Hold done properly: with beginning the Hold May 30th or June 1st as originally requested. 2) Written and signed documentation that no further money is owed.

RE:          Response to complaint from ID# *******

Date:     8/28/13

Beginning April of this year (2013) our membership office has reached out to this member through personal  contact and phone calls in the effort to clarify her account balance and to honor her freeze request.

This membership’s monthly payment is through a credit card auto pay system. This account has a $132 balance due for May and June monthly individual membership at $56 per month plus $10 per month credit card return fee. Payment cannot be processed because the credit card has expired. The May payment was returned to us on the 8th; the June payment on the 10th. Twin Oaks is our billing company, not as stated in the complaint a “Collection company,” and Twin Oaks calls members with outstanding balances.  According to our records, she attempted to make a payment directly to Twin Oaks for the May membership/late charge, but this payment did not go through and was returned on 7/23/2013.

April 22, a membership office employee called and left a message that we needed to update her auto pay information as card date had expired. Another staff person of the membership office called again on May 30 and left message again regarding the need to update her auto pay information as well as receive May payment as the credit card reversed. Our membership office did not receive a response to either of these phone calls.

The individual did drop off a freeze form dated May 30th before our office opened. She wanted to begin a membership freeze July 1 through November 1. This form requires two initials, a printed name, and a signature to verify dates of freeze as well as the member’s understanding of freeze policy. The form was initialed, name printed, and signature provided in the appropriate places.

On July 3, the individual called our membership office accusing us of “criminal activity,” challenging the freeze information and the balance due. The Club’s membership director reviewed not only this freeze form and policy steps but also all notes detailing our efforts to contact her. She found the form correctly completed and the balance due correct.

Per the individual’s request to yet another staff individual, a copy of the freeze form was sent via regular mail. On August 16, the individual came to the office and requested yet another copy in person. One was provided in her presence.

Our membership office employees have followed Fort Collins Club policies and protocols throughout. Because this individual expresses continued dissatisfaction with our efforts to serve her, we will forgive the $132 balance and cancel her membership effective immediately.

Consumer Response: Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID *******, and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me.

Regards,

BBB's Final Determination: Consumer accepted resolution offered by the business.
