I don’t know where to address this so please someone help because I’m really freaking out.

 

A few months ago me and my now ex gf joined a gym (David Lloyd uk)

we’ve been living in uk since April 2018,

 

the lady with the contract just rambled for whole minutes about how this gym is perfect.

I was looking at the contract briefly (my first mistake) .

 

.. fast forward - me and me ex broke up after 2 months of gym.

I’ve been to the gym and said to them that I want to cancel my gf membership.

They said that I have to wait for a call.

 

Alright. After a few days I received a call and the lady told me that I can’t cancel my girlfriend membership because we’ve sign a 12 months membership.

I said: what? I don’t remember a thing about 12 months membership.

They sent me the contract.

 

I said to them that I don’t want to be a part of this anymore through email and I want to cancel both memberships.

After that I haven’t heard of em till now.

 

Today I received a message from arceurope (a debt collector company) they’re saying that I have to pay almost 1400 pounds for those 10 months left.

10 months multiplied by 2 because we were 2. 20 months = 1400 pounds.

 

They’re saying that if in 14 days they will not have a response, I will be threatened by legal court

 

I’m losing my mind because it’s the first time this kind of things are happening to me.

 

Help with some advice

please!

Thank you!

moved to the gym forum.

 

nothing much they can do

a DCA is NOT a BAILIFFS ignore them stay off the phone.

 

when you asked to cancel it would hasve been a 1 month notice

so each of you would have needed to pay 1 month fees then stop the DD>

 

so what did you do , just cancel it?

 

they cant do anything to you

gyms don't do court anymore

and

they don't show on your credit file.

The thing is that I was pretty furious because I wanted to continue the membership just for myself but they didn’t accepted.

They said that both of us have to be there as mentioned in contract.

 

My ex will leave the country in a few days after a 2 year relationship and that’s something pretty awful for me and I have to deal with.

They’re coming after me like I’m a prisoner and I feel like.

 

I had so many red flags during the signing of the contract but I just ignore them like a stupid.

Thank you for your advice!

I hope everything will be fine.

Hi Tabacco and welcome to CAG

 

1. Did you agree to pay the m/ship fees for you AND your GF, or did you each sign separate agreements and separate bank DD mandates.

 

2. Has ARC Europe or the gym added any admin fees on top of the 12 months m/ship fees.

 

:-)


We could do with some help from you

1) Her account was linked to mine and I was the one paying.

2) First day there and we paid if I remember correctly 100 pounds over the price of the gym as a fee.
