My husband has rented space thru American Consumer Shows on 2 occasions to participate as a vendor in a local home show. They claimed that he signed a contract in February 2011 to participate in the fall 2011 show. He had zero recollection of signing it. They told me they had the signed contract and that we were legally responsible to pay the $1,895. fee whether we participated in the home show or not or they would send us to a debt collector and damage our credit rating. Shortly after sending them a $900. deposit, they emailed us the contract. My husband's signature was not the signature on the contract. In fact, his writing was NO WHERE on the paper. The signature strongly resembled the writing from the "office use only" section of the contract leading us to believe the signature originated from ACS. We consulted with an attorney. He examined the contracts, agreed that the signature seemed bogus and recommended we write a letter requesting reimbursement and release of contractual obligation. Not only did they not reimburse us or release us from the bogus contract but... they turned us in to a collection agent that has a blog of complaints against him for using unethical tactics such as leaving messages that you must return his call asap because it is about your children. The rep. we dealt with at ACS also agreed that Kurt's writing was nowhere to be found on the contract. It has been terrible dealing with them. Beware!!!
