Check to see if you signed an explicit contract to that effect.  If not, they 
can't charge you.  They may say it was in an agreement that you had agreed to 
when you signed up, but if what you signed didn't say that either, then your 
free and clear.  Call the manager there, and if he gives you static tell them 
you are calling the BBB and filing suit.  Even if it's $20 and they don't 
back down, follow it through you get your money and your account back.
