Yes he is an adult, he lives with me now but he is not on the mortgage, nor are any bills in his name. The Gateway Rep came over and spoke to him knowing he did not have authorization To START the service. I was to call to Gateway to verify that I wanted the service. I never did, and assumed that was the end of it. After some time, my PSE&G bill became delinquent . Until my electric service was cutoff of lack of payment. We settled with them, and I began to receive Bills form gateway, and PSE&G. Gateway had been taking part of my payments to PSE&G for some time. I never signed off on anything from Gateway, or agreed to this. the sales rep had put my son as my spouse, which is illegal I believe. I feel that they are going to attempt to make me pay this 500 dollar balance from them. Which I will not because I never signed up for their service. I dont want this affecting my credit or my sons.
I have the "contract" here, my son has ADHD, but he did specify that he could not make decisions for me, The PSE&G bill is in my name only. My son is not connected the the account at all. The rep said he could start the process, but could not, or would not Start the service, until I signed off on a contract. I never did, and assumed that was that. Now Im geting bills for their service, and on the consent form the Rep has My son as My SPOUSE. this is not the case. The rep has taken advantage of my sons condition, to get his commission. Now since the rep had LIED on the contract, saying my son was my spouse, I don't think he should owe anything. My son is not a home-owner, does not have a PSE&G account, and didn't agree anything
