Yes, I will be happy to answer for you. I'm based in Tucson. What is the issue with the country club initiation fee?

If you prefer to discuss on phone, I can call you too.

I joined Anthem CC with a payment of $45000 with guarantee that I would get 80% back if I ended membership. I did so 10 years ago.
They claim there is some formula for getting fee back.
I was told I would get refund within one year when I joined.
They misrepresented that and 10 years is excessive and unreasonable.
According to their formula, it could be another 10 years.
I’m 70 years old, a disabled Vet and on a fixed income now.
I suspect the ‘formula’ is designed to avoid return of fee.

I suggest a telephone call to discuss options and a recommendation to get your money back.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
