All companies have written contracts with fine print. The fine print protects the company, not the employee or contractor. Those of you who "tell" us to "read the fine print" before signing a contract are naive because there is NO fine print out there that everyone would agree to, but yet you have to sign the document before you can earn money with that company. If we all read the fine print, none of us would ever agree 100% and none of us would be owning a car, house, obtaining services from accountants, lawyers, etc. etc. There is no fine print for any company/organization that is 100% agreeable to the person (consumer) signing the document to "bind the contract".
So, listen up smart alecks who tell people "not to sign a contract" and to "read the fine print". Are you telling me that your do not have gas or electricity to your home? We ALL must "sign" or enter into a legal binding contract with our utility companies, otherwise how do we heat and cool our homes or have electricity to run the computer on which you are posting these messages? It is not logical and your comments telling that person's son to "read the fine print" before he started working with Springmasters are uncalled for. Why don't you help the situation instead of making the person feel even worse from a company that defrauded him.
