A publisher company picked the data of my company (from some where) and sent to my office request to register in one of their publications on the internet. The text was made in very tricky way (for non English speaking person by birth), and I signed thinking it was free. I got an invoice (after cancellation period was past) and realized that I signed for subscription for three years each for 1200 Euros. Immediately I sent them my rejection and explanation but all was in vain as they insist I must pay.
I am Egyptian, and such amount of money is a fortune (e.g. 7000 Egyptian pounds) and can't afford to pay and my company will not pay. I signed and stamped the application as it is in clear bold letters indicated free, while in other small sentences it indicates it is free if not signed. I was tricked I admit, but due to the tricky used way. What can I do?? I sent them cancellation which they refused. I, to the best of my honesty believed it was for free and thus signed. There was no contract but only the form they sent which was sent back to them as instructed in their formats (thus nothing was left with me to refer to and read again) until they sent me the invoice.
What can I do?? I am not a European citizen as I am Egyptian; can you help me with any advice? Thanks.
PS: The Tricky Company is Swiss and I am in Egypt where we speak Arabic by birth and English is the second language good but not enough to protect my self from legal sophisticated English legal terms, and thus fell into that trap. What is more every time they send the invoice they increase E U 15.oo (LE 100)??!!
