punkybrewster:  The emails that you discussed with an attorney may not have been admissible evidence, but that doesn’t mean all emails are inadmissible. Emails sent by the opposing party often are admissible, assuming the email can be authenticated. Getting emails into evidence can be challenging, but it is done all the time.

Your reponse was good, I would avoid ANY further contact with them at all. You already requested evidence of where you agreed to pay for it, it’s their job to do so or not. Keep an eye on the the statements, if they attempted a charge, report them, it is illegal for them to charge something you did not consent to. 

If you need any further contact, I would honestly contact a lawyer to do so for you, he’ll know what to say or not to say to keep you secure.

queennen:  I’m the type of person that prefers to end up paying more for a lawyer then giving money to bullies. These people keep harrassing her by calling even after she asked them not to. Lol I know it’s silly but I’d feel Im spending money on sending the bullies a message!

smoocheepoo:  you’re fine. Contract works both ways – it tells you what you’re getting for what you’ve paid, but it also specifies what a vendor can charge you for. If they wanted to charge you extra for the tent (which they could do, since it’s not covered in the contract), they should have required payment for it BEFORE they put up the tent. at that point, if you refused to pay, there’s not much they could have done. But since they put it up without payment, it’s THEIR fault for not telling you it was an extra charge. Too bad for them. You don’t have to pay it. 

Same for DJ. you agreed to a price, he can’t charge you more in retrospect.

let them take you to small claims court if they want. They won’t win. 

ETA: if you’re sued by them, it would be small claims court where you just represent yourself, Jushe Judy style. No attorney’s fees Necesarry – just ignore that comment, it’s just plain wrong.

aushi:  I’m an attorney so I’m all for people paying me out of principle!! LOL. But seriously, it’s one way to send a message to companies who pull this crap. And hopefully, it keeps them from doing it again. Depending on the contract, it may provide that if you win in court, the company will be responsible for attorney’s fees! That’s a win-win.
