Claimed I had agreed verbally over the phone to an advertisment in their "Stay safe" booklet to be released in 2 weeks??
Ring me every day demanding payment and am not covinced that they are legitimate?
Have received an email showing proof of advertisement and because initially thought they were ok I sent back suggestions for amendment. I guess this automatically tied me into the contract, did it? Would appreciate your advice please.
A contract can be concluded orally, this means that if you agreed to terms on the telephone then you would be bound by them provided they were sufficiently clear.
If you agreed to advertise, there was an agreed price and time/form for when the advert would appear then you will be bound by it.
I would ask them to confirm in an emailed letter on headed paper the terms of the advert. If the adverti does not materialise then you can sue the under the sale of goods/supply of goods & services act via www.moneyclaim.gov.uk
If you do not pay the money and the company are minded to on the basis that they believe there was a contract then they will sue you.
Trust this clarifies, if so please click accept.
