I have a rented a franking machine from FP mailing since

Customer Question

I have a rented a franking machine from FP mailing since 2013 when I signed a 24 month contract, they recently tried to tie me into another machine and I told them it was no longer finanacially viable for me and I wanted to end the contract which they then avoided, did not answer my calls etc etc
Finally they got back to me and said the small print on the back state the contract will roll over, they was not explained to me and normally you get notification from other companies informing you the contract is about to roll over
They are now making me either keep the contract for the next year of pay them over £200 to get out
Can they do this? Unfortuantely I cannot find my contract to prove they have not changed the details since I signed it, my signature is on the front and these so called T's & C's are on the back with no signature??
Please help, I know they are trying to pull a fast one but I cannot prove it
Many thanks Sheralie

It doesn't where I have signed but it supposedly does on the reverse

Did you not read the document before you signed it?
