Thanks -- just wanted to make sure.
Many states have three-day cancellation laws for dating service contracts. Washington State has such laws for health clubs and business opportunities, among other things, but not for dating services.
However, RCW 19.150.020
provides a number of circumstances under which a sale, if completed by telephone, can be canceled by certified mail, return receipt requested, if mailed within three business days of the date that the telephone sale was made.
If this sale was completed over the phone, then I would encourage you to review the link provided above and see if you can make your facts fit within the provisions of the law.
If that doesn't work, and the sale was completed by you in person, then you would have to rely on the federal Truth in Lending
Act, which provides that where a credit card sale is made within your home state, you are entitled to assert any claim against the credit card issuer (bank) that you may have against the merchant.
Under this provision, you would send the merchant a "notice of rescission," stating that after reading the contract, you find that it does not represent the terms and conditions that were represented to you by the marketing literature or oral promises of the salesperson, and demand that the merchant process a full refund. If you do not receive a positive answer within a reasonable time (in my opinion 5 days is more than sufficient), then you would write a dispute letter to your credit card issuer, and make the same assertions concerning your purchase.
Because of the manner in which credit card disputes are resolved, you must be very careful to document your facts as to the false representations which were made. If you have marketing literature or other documents which clearly differ from the written contract, then that would be excellent proof of your claim. You will only get one chance to convince the credit card issuer that you were deceived into signing the contract, and your ability to show the deception is critical.
Assuming that you do, then the credit card issuer will cancel the transaction, and that will end the matter.
Note that you cannot dispute the charge unless you do so within 60 days of the date that the charge appears on your credit card statement (the statement date).
Hope this helps.
