Canadian class action law suit against direct buy

I am having some trouble finding out if there is a class action lawsuit against Direct Buy Canada. I went to google and entered Directbuy complaintwire and found hundreds of complaints about Direct Buy however I am interested in a class action suit against this company. Can you please tell if there is one and if not how to start one? Thank you

<br />I would also be interested. Direct buy opened a store on Vancouver island, signed up hundreds of people then filed for bankruptcy. Now the closest one is a three hour drive and $200 ferry ride away. I would never have paid over $4000 if I knew I had to get off the island to order everything. Now the shipping to get it here is so expensive its cheaper to go to HOME DEPOT!!

<br />I had put this horrible nightmare out of my mind because of the financial heartache it caused, until yesterday, when I came across the file folder. <br />We also got "conned" into this crap!!&nbsp; We tried getting in touch with these people before our first payment came out to tell them....after the pressure sales crap, that we did not want to continue with our so called membership!&nbsp; Never, ever received a call back and then after 2 months of trying they finally got back to us and said it was too late because the payments were already made and we could not get out of it! <br />This whole thing is a scam................... if there is a suit count us in!!! They are nothing but liars and cheaters!!

<br />I think there would be hundreds of participants in a Directbuy Canada lawsuit. The settlement in the US was recently denied because the only ones getting anything out of it would have been the lawyers. I don't know what a proper settlement would be but I'd tend to think in terms of 1/2 my money back. They pressure with unsavoury now or never tactics, they inflate the possible savings &amp; continually make changes without proper member notification. How about moving service centres? Now the close convenient location I signed up for is an hour away. How about not disclosing the fact you are only a member for 10 years &amp; then have to do it all over again? These jokers will not admit wrongdoing in taking kickbacks from providers which they do not pass on to us but they jump at a chance to settle the suit in the States as it amounts to little or nothing when compared to the millions they scam from joe public. <br />I only wish I knew more about starting a class action. anyone with ideas should post here so we can keep the pressure on them.
