Looks like the high pressure sales tactics finally attracted enough attention:
CPB secretary-general Niroth Chadhroenprakob said that finalising fitness centre contracts this year was its priority. During the first 10 months of last year, 297 complaints were filed about fitness club services not meeting commitments by sales representatives.
“Fitness centres rank third in complaints received last year. From November 2008 to March 2009, over 100 complaints were received with similar problems at eight centres,” he said.
In the last fiscal year ending Sept 30, 626 complaints were filed against property firms. In second place were automobile and motorcycle firms, which faced 485 complaints related to unfair hire-purchase contracts.
