Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.
You do have recourse here and if they won't voluntarily allow you to leave without paying further, you want to raise the stakes on them. Send them a certified, return receipt requested letter detailing the history, including the agent's pressure tactics and misrepresentation, and demand they honor your 30 day notice to terminate as was represented to you with no further recourse. Inform them that if they do not comply with your demand within a short specified period of time and pursue you for any further payments, you will have no choice but to file your own suit for your damages. BUT, be sure to specifically mention that you will be filing this claim not only as a breach of contract case, but also as fraud and deceptive trade practice causes of action, which will entitle you not only to your damages, but also an additional amount equal to multiple times your actual damages as punitive damages. That should provide plenty of incentive to comply with your demands; but, if it does not, file your suit. Even if you have to file the suit, that's likely all you will need do. In my experience, they will settle this without a hearing rather than risk punitive damages and the fraud and/or deceptive trade practice judgments being on the record, and the negative publicity that comes with that.
