KEY WEST, Fla. (CBS Tampa) — A Massachusetts man is sore today after he was charged $9,000 for a $500 shoulder massage at an adult club.
Key West police said in a report that there’s little they could do over the payment discrepancy and told the man it’s a civil matter.
According to documents, the man entered the Key West Scrub Club — an adult entertainment center at 1221 Duval Street– at 5:00 a.m. for the massage expecting to pay $500 on his Bank of America credit card. Merely 20 minutes later, an employee said he was all done.
The man found out that he was charged $9,000 after Bank of America called to check on the charge. He immediately flagged down a police cruiser upon receiving the news.
A representative of the Key West Scrub Club said management would not comment, saying the club’s services to patrons are of a private and confidential nature.
