A good friend of mine trusted World Gym London with her financial information as many do. After she cancelled her membership (which was month to month) and was assured the charges would stop being withdrawn, she was still being charged ~ wrongfully (for way too long!) They caused a large amount of NSF charges on top of the fees they stole.
They got around the stop payment by slightly changing the amount each time! They said the charge amount changes due to 'late payment'! THE ONLY WAY SHE COULD GET THESE CHARGES TO STOP WAS TO CLOSE HER BANK ACCOUNT!!! After the fact she learned it *may* be possible to not put an amount on the stop payment, just the business name - just in case anyone else finds themselves in this terrible predicament.
BEWARE to anyone considering allowing this establishment access to direct withdrawal from any of their financial sources. If they'll do it to one, they'll do it to more! P.S. Her HONEST but negative (obviously) review was deleted from Facebook wrongfully (even thogh she stated she would remove it after the gym resolved the issue).
This 'gym' will do everything they can to say it is resolved and place the blame on her but it is all lies... do NOT fall for it.
They have done this to someone who goes out of her way to spread good news and promote local businesses (it's her job even!) and she would NEVER give a negative review unless it was absolutely true and necessary. Spread the word to save someone else great hassle and stress.
Reviewer is in unhappy mood. Please immediately contact the author of this review to discuss problems with payment of world gym membership. World Gym needs to read this review and look into the issue (if any) according to poster's claims.
