I applied for a Schengen visa in order to visit my husband who resides in Dusseldorf, Germany.
I submitted all the supporting documents including the travel itinerary, proof of accommodation, the personal covering letter from my husband's bank, salary statements, residence permit and marriage certificate.

My application was refused the day after, with no reason checked in the refusal letter.

How can I contact them to approve my visa?

Is there an email to which I send an appeal?

I only have a month before I want to travel to Germany.

    Did you get BOTH PAGES of the refusal notice and all the check marks were blank? – Gayot Fow Feb 8 '17 at 17:20

    It's very strange to receive a refusal the next day. Exactly where did you submit this application? – Michael Hampton Feb 8 '17 at 17:31

    Did you receive any stamp on your passport from German consulate with date and reference number written on it? – Ali Awan Feb 8 '17 at 17:39

    @Moo Schengen refusals are a two page list of check boxes, no text like UK refusals. Also given the OP's likely locale we have to sort through if the VFS was legit or a fraud, there are LOTS of possibilities when these things happen. – Gayot Fow Feb 8 '17 at 17:52

    There are supposed to be 11 reasons, 11 check boxes. You apparently are missing the 2nd page. But nonetheless you should fax the consulate explaining the issue. – Gayot Fow Feb 8 '17 at 19:48
