  • Monetary Loss: $0
My fiance was approached by one of the main employees by the name of Jeff Heffner who works for the Everybody Fitness, in Dayton Ohio by the mall. He pretty much tried to get him to sign up with the gym. He even tried to convince my fiancee that he could get other members to join and he would pay him for the work. The guy comes off friendly and in my opinion, too friendly. When we all had went over there to look more into it with the kids. Jeff told us that we could cancel at any time. (This was a lie) He also showed us around and told us that it was a twenty-four hour gym (this is also a lie) We both had been in gyms before and never had a problem. So, we didn't seem like it would be a problem to just try it out. He said we had to sign only because of my thirteen year old son, just in case there might be a problem. He even tried to tell us that he could be added to the contract which we both found a little specious. We tried it out for four days. Four days was enough to find out we didn't like it. Jeff was too up in your personal space when he would get near you. Sometimes I felt like he was trying to get too close to my face. He would also touch you when you didn't want him to. They lied about the gym being a twenty four hour gym. We were furious. So, my fiance went to talk to the main boss, Mike. He didn't say anything just handed my fiance a card. My fiance was a little confused because we didn't understand why they just couldn't cancel the membership?! He called the number to only get a hold of a man. He was rude. When my fiance explained what happened the man just got rude and said we couldn't cancel our membership unless we moved 25 miles away from the nearest Everybody Fitness. Um, why would anyone move just to cancel their membership and why should we? We were furious. When my fiance told the man this the man has the nerve to hang up on him! Seriously!, hangs up on my fiance. My fiance at this point was furious cause we were lied to. When he went back to speak to Jeff. Jeff laughs as though he finds the entire thing amusing. He becomes snarky as he tells my fiance, well, there isn't nothing you can do, yet, because we haven't quite took money off your card, as though that was funny that we couldn't do anything about it. This man had my card information and could take $60.00 every 1st off my card because we couldn't cancel and they wouldn't let us cancel!! My fiance gets upset and tells the man he lied. Jeff, continues to find it amusing as he calls my fiance brother. My fiance informs him that he isn't his brother. This is when he walks away and goes behind his office desk before replying, whatever, BROTHER. As he says the word, brother, louder and thinks the entire thing is a joke. It was unprofessional and we didn't appreciate it. We spoke to an officer and a lawyer.

Online Scammers

  • Monetary Loss: $92
On Facebook, they have an offer pop up for skin care product. After you purchase, they quickly add another "last second add-on" and charge you whether you want it or not.
Within a couple of weeks time, they also charged my card $92.99 under "splendidskin." Same day they charge another $92.97 under 'Luminous Beauty."
I called to dispute and very matter-of-factly, the strong-accented Indian woman named "Rose" responds, "Who are you going to report us to?" She refused several times to refund my money & refused to allow me to speak to a supervisor. She claimed that I was enrolled in a 14-day trial which expired and I never once agreed to or was aware of.
Super apparent what they do when you call, as they are under many different names with many different numbers. 855-200-2545
I am now having to go through dispute via MasterCard.

  • Monetary Loss: $375
Gregg Dubrowsky surveyed our house and said it would 2 days for the report. He was told the appraisal was for a potential buyer who would be returning in 9 days to revisit the house. The report was not received in two days. It was not received in 7, 8 or 9 days. He demanded cash and has not provided the appraisal. The buyers have walked and it's due to Appraisals On Time, Inc. not providing the report. STAY FAR AWAY FROM GREGG DUBROWSKY from Stevenson Ranch, CA.

Bondsman Scam

  • by: FlyGirl172s
  • #37213
  • Aug 02, 2017
  • Monetary Loss: $797
I got a call from a Las Vagas, NV number. When I answered, the man was claiming to be my current bondsman. He also called me from my current bondsman's office number. He told me that I owed an additional 1500 or he would revoke my bond and send me back to jail, if I did not comply. I was scared because when a bond is revoked, you get sent back to jail for the duration of my trial. I did NOT want that to happen. He told me to drive to the nearest Western Union and instructed me how to send him the money "I owed", and he said I had to stay on the phone with him the whole time. After I completed the transaction (I only had 800.00 that I had immediate access to), he told me that would not be enough and I had to pay the entire amount. I drove home to speak to my mom and dad. By that time it was too late. My mom had already called my legitimate bondsman and spoke to him about what was happening, and he said he knew nothing about it and it was a scam. I contacted my bank to, but they couldn't help me. I contacted Publix where they told me they couldn't help either. I had to call the local police and file a report.
