Personal Training Scam

**** DRAFT ****

If you find errors or issues, please email them to

There is a scam in which gym owners receive an email asking for a large amount of personal training for family members paid with a credit card upfront.  The person requesting the training has a reason, often a disability, for not being able to come into the gym to pay in person.  DO NOT ACCEPT THIS PAYMENT.

The person paying upfront will provide you with a credit card then shortly after demand an  immediate refund via cash or check and threaten legal action and negative reviews if you do not compile with their demand.  Meanwhile they will report the charge to the credit card as fraudulent and the credit card company will refund their money from your back account.
