I just did not see the signs behind me plus it is a bit decieving if their machines are actually on the property and their sign on the wall

Hello are you there????? Ive paid for a session and you are not responding
Expert:  Jo C. replied 11 months ago.

The reason you are experiencing delay is that you keep posting before I have responded which pushes the question to the back of my list.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 11 months ago.

If you are not wiling to be sued then the only option is to pay in full. There is no other way of stamping out the risk.

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
thank you for your help
Expert:  Jo C. replied 11 months ago.

If you are prepared to run the risk then the chances you would be sued are very low but they do exist. There is no way around that.
