    He risks being counter sued for fraud but good luck to him. Top work at avoiding the charges.

    I doubt it. They sent him a contract, he amended it. The moment they didn't read the small print and signed it away, they were fucked themselves. Fraud is only accountable if the accused party does something illegal. He hasn't done anything illegal. Anyone can re-write a contract before the signing takes place as long as the rewriting does actually take place before the signing. It's the way contracts work. He basically acted as his own solicitor.

    Hero.

    How is this fraud? The bank agreed to a contract that they didn't read and got fucked in the A by it.

    I would have thought that the last person to amend a contract would have to be the last person that signed it?


    If he has amended it and signed it then given it back I wonder if that is legal? Whenever you sign a contract, be it for a phone or whatever it is, they you sign it then they do. I think the last amender has to be the signer. That seems to be the convention - although it may not be the legality of it so it's underhanded if not illegal

    I guess if the banked signed and agreed with everything written on the paper good for him. But, typically, banks write out contracts of adhesion so any contractee added ammendments would be void???





    Not a lawyer over here guys. lol

    Hey Duggie you're making sense for once what's going on?

    In fairness I'm not a lawyer either but I thought that as a consumer signing a contract for goods and services you were basically in a situation where you either agreed to the terms and conditions on offer or you didn't. It certainly doesn't feel like you're entering into business with the bank and can expect to negotiate an agreement. I could be very wrong though but surely this would have come up before?

    I mentioned the fraud thing because the banks lawyers seem to feel they may have a case against him. Could just be bluster though.

    He has clearly handed it back to them under the pretence that it is the same contract as they handed him. He scanned it and doctored it, he hasn't written his own contract at all. That act would surely constitute fraud. I doubt that he will get jailed for fraud, but I can't imagine the banks will be liable either
