I know you didn’t go into retailing because you enjoy paperwork, but you need to note how long a contract is for and any cancellation fees.

Sunil Joshi signed up for a Scratchcards dispenser last year, but then sold his store to another retailer who didn’t want the terminal. He rang me when he realised he was still being billed £25 a month for it. And Camelot hadn’t picked it up despite Sunil writing to tell them he was no longer in business (The letter went to an invalid email address).

Camelot has confirmed it will now pick up the equipment and cancel the contract - but Sunil wound up paying for the full year because that is what he signed up for.
