that happened to me and my attorney told me i should have read all the contracts better before i agreed * No, if the consumer signs documents without reading such or those which are not completely filled in, the law presumes the person did not take "reasonable care and concern" in the matter. The exceptions would be if a document was changed after the signing without the signer(s) being made aware of and agreeing to the action, and obviously if the person's signature was forged.
