Ok, the title doesnt tell the whole story.... in fact I dont know the full story as of yet.
As some of you know my other half set up her own business earlier this year as a photographer with her own studio.
Now from what I can gather, she was approached by some company (I wont know who until I get all the details this evening) who said to be selling something or offering some kind of service etc etc. From what I can get out of her she said she never accepted to buying anything however she does admit to saying that they could send her some additional information and she'd think about whatever it was (again she probably knows what it was, i dont at this point).
Now she's getting letter saying that she owes them a few hundred pounds for whatever they have done on her behalf - It's a lesson in business she's learnt from, she'll pay more attention to whats going on in future.
My question is whether this is legal, although she is adament that she didnt agree to purchase anything, only requested further information - but can that be enough to be justified as a legally binding contract or are these letters claiming that they will take her to court for the money just scare tactics that prey on small businesses?
I'll be able to give a clearer story later becuase I'm going to call them and listen to the audio from the call as to what exactly was said.
Is there anything in particular I can look out for as a loop hole if she's accadently put her foot in it? or anyone point me to legality of selling over the phone.
Thanks in advance.
