Lake Forest, CA asked in Consumer Law for California

Q: I have paid for a gift certificate to a massage service. They will not schedule unless i provide a credit card.

There is not a policy on my gift certificate or on website that says this. Is this legal? They have my money already.

A: Plenty of possibilities including that it IS in there somewhere?

That said, in that business, they often get no shows. The credit

card is their security against this, as they normally charge for

last minute cancels. Life may be easier to just give them the

number, especially compared to having to pay an attorney

to sue them?
