I know that dating services contracts are covered under the California Buyers R

Resolved Question:

I know that dating services contracts are covered under the California Buyer's Remorse Laws and I can cancel within 3 days. However, what if the contract I signed says I can cancel within 3 business days, but the credit card receipt says "all sales final"? Also, do they have to receive the cancellation letter in 3 days, or do I just have to mail it in 3 days?

In plain English:

  • The credit card receipt verbiage is void as against public policy.
  • The time period for cancellation is 3 business days.
  • The cancellation is effective on the date that the letter is deposited into the mail. You may want to consider sending the cancelation by certified mail, so you can prove when it was deposited.

See generally, Cal. Civil Code § 1694.1.

Hope this helps.
