Always trust your instincts. I didn't until it was almost too late.
My husband signed the contract after I left the room. I called the salesperson back telling them that I wanted my signature on the contract too and to do it over. I got the contract and scribbled all over it before they could stop me saying I wanted another contract. I got the downpayment check plus the voided check they wanted to use for an automatic withdrawal.
Very vague information and still fell for it. Ticks me off that I was such an *** for listening to the spiel even when I heard the price for an above-ground pool 24' x 48'?? for $21,000. What an *** I am!
They were flabberghasted that I didn't want it after all and didn't sign another contract. I did not give my credit card numbers or anything, they gave me back everything (supposedly). How in the blue blazes did they do a credit check on my and my husband before they got to my house with only our birthdates?? What!??
I hope I'm in the clear but still... Also, the sales "lady" smelled like she had been drinking.
