When employees take cash from customers and literally put it in their own pockets, all I can say is "Wow!" That's what Cheetah Gym's owner claimed happened to him at his Chicago based gym. Cheetah's owner, David Wilshire, posted on his website that "Cheetah Gym has been closed due to employee theft and graft
. The degree of corruption was enormous. I was left in a position where I could trust no-one or anything. Most of the problems were at the Bucktown facility. Edgewater, I believe, was relatively free of graft. The scams ran the gamut but it looks like I was the sole victim of theft. However, I urge you to get fraud protection as a precaution." Employees were “wiping out petty cash or just stealing deposits — not even taking deposits in,” he said.
David's response to the theft? He fired everyone!
