    Default Paid for Real Estate Conference I No Longer Want to Attend

    in 2006, I paid a down payment for a real estate conference, I had 30 days to get a refund in which I did not because I thought it was something I really wanted to do. Now 4 years down the road, I don't want to go to a real estate conference and I would like my 2,5k back. Is there anyway to do this? I thought of a couple possible ways, and maybe someone here can give me more advice.

    1. they have a 30 day money back guarantee, could I pay the rest of my payment, and request a total refund with in 30 days?

    2. I never signed the contract they gave me to sign, is there anyway possible I could get out of it because of that?

    Any other options I might have? I tried the BBB and they couldn't help me because it was over 1 year old they said.

    Thanks for your opinions.

    You put $2,500 down on a real estate conference back in 2006, with the conference to occur in 2010? That seems odd.

    Refunds will ge governed by your contract. As I can't read your contract from here, I can't tell you if the game you propose in #1 is viable. You never signed a contract, but apparently were aware of the terms when you sent in the check.

    No, it was for 2006, but I couldn't afford the rest of it that year either, so I told them to hold the money for a later date.

    Well any advice? Could I pay the rest and then request a refund in 30 days? would that not be counted as a 30 day refund policy? thanks

    You have 30 days from the date you register to cancel your live event registration.
    In my opinion, it hinges on this statement. When you paid the down payment in 2006, did you register for one of their events?
    If yes, then I think you're out of luck. If no, then you probably have a valid argument, but I would bet after 4 years they'll hesitate on the refund.

    I did attend to go to one of their events, but I asked for a refund in 2008. So it has been 2 years since my initial asking. But I didn't sign the agreement, would that get me out of it?
