I spoke with Newsweek yesterday about how the pandemic is affecting consumers with gym memberships. We primarily help consumers with credit report errors. Unscrupulous gyms that continue to charge consumers — even though the gym has been ordered closed — may need to answer for their reporting inaccurate information to the credit bureaus.
Here’s one section from the article:
Attorney Adam Singer, whose firm advocates on behalf of consumers, said he believes “emphatically” that gyms should not be able to shut down and continue to charge consumers, though they may “probably try to do it anyway.” Singer thinks “consumers should resist that.”
He laid out three options gym members should consider to avoid being charged for services they cannot receive during the effect of emergency orders.
