Hoboken, NJ asked in Contracts and Energy, Oil and Gas for New Jersey

Q: Cancelled a contract with a third party company, I’d like to know if the cancellation documents I got are sufficient.

For context, I accidentally signed a contract with a third party energy supplier. I was able to cancel the contract right away and I confirmed with the company that my account is closed. After my request to cancel the contract, I was able to receive a cancellation number and a notice of cancellation. After reviewing the notice of cancellation, there was no cancellation number on the notice. There was, however, the number of the contract ID on the notice. I have every cancellation information verbally and physically confirmed through calls and documents. Knowing that this company has a reputation for resigning clients without their permission and asking for large sums of fees after, I want to ask are the documents I received sufficient enough evidence to prove I have successfully cancelled my contract with no cancellation fees if there is an event where the company wrongly opens my account without consent, or if they start asking for money (claiming I haven’t cancelled)? I live in NJ.

A: Without reviewing the initial agreement specifically whether there is included the procedure for cancelling, it would appear that the information you provided would support that you proceeded promptly and diligently in cancelling the contract.
