Is there anything I can do, to how much I’m overpaying for something
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 10 days ago.

Did you know how much it was and how much you would pay back before you signed?

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
Yes I knew the monthly payments but didn’t add them up
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 10 days ago.

Did it not say the total repayable on the agreement?

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
Probably most of it was done over the phone. I think everything is legal but I feel I’m massively over paying for it and feel surely they can’t rip me off that much

Did you not sign anything?
