I appreciate the reply, Unfortunately I took the contract to work in case I had to make any quick decisions and forgot it there. I guess if I don't have a 3 day crunch it isn't as urgent.
The contract states that the intro money is owed upon signing the document AND the end of the interview and pays for them doing the matching. Considering that I did not technically finish my interview because I did not finish filling out my interview questions and they cannot finish my matching because I have not finished filling out questions, can I get out of it? Though another clause might state that after 6 months of doing nothing, I lose it all.. really wish I had it in front of me, I might run back up to the office just for it.
Would you have any recommendations for finding a local lawyer relatively cheaply who would quickly look at this and see if he/she see any loopholes?
I realize I signed it and I screwed up but in hindsight they really played every dirty but legal trick in the book, asked me about my ex who I just got out of a really bad breakup with, and then made me feel bad and making me feel lonely, the sales girl being an attractive flirty female who rushed me and made me feel bad for keeping her there while she was sick but reminding me the offer was time sensitive, and I just really don't want them to have my money if legally possible.
I'm guessing I can't stand outside their business but if I do go up there and complain and see anyone else about to go through the process, can I legally try to convince them to run away?
Thank you Lucy! I suspect these are the rest of my questions especially if you have advice for finding someone I can talk to.
Would it make sense to send them a quick email so that I have it in writing that if at all legally possible I would like to cancel today.
I realize you don't have the contract in front of you but I'm thinking:
"If at all legally possible please completely cancel my membership today. If not, do not send me any matches. I would like to invoke clause 3 in the contract and cancel my membership before you send them to me."
Doesn't look like a 3 day thing, the $1,595 is nonrefundable
I realize it probably doesn't make a difference I should never have signed this and feel a little stupid but the girl working there did lie to me about the terms of the agreement and then tell me to rush to sign it because she hadn't eaten yet and it was getting late and she needed to go. Basically a scam artist because she preyed on me being nice. Doesn't make a difference because I still went ahead and stupidly signed it right?
Oh and the contract includes if there are any legal problems I pay their legal fees on top of everything else... I can't believe I fell for this.
