Rockaway, NJ asked in Arbitration / Mediation Law, Business Law and Contracts for New Jersey

Q: I purchased a 1 year subscription for an internet search application for my consulting business for $2,900.00.

When contacted about a renewal I said I would not renew then, but possibly later in the year. The company then offered a discount which I still refused. I was then sent a renewal invoice which I contacted them to try to straighten it out. In response, they have sent that invoice to a collection agency which is threatening legal action stating I was required to cancel 60 days in advance in writing, according to a contract I never saw and never signed. In fact they were notified in an email more than 2 months prior that I would not renew.

What are my legal options?

A: This really amounts to a small claim and I would not be worried about it and would print out the information that you sent prior to 60 days and my guess is they will do absolutely nothing about it.
