Direct buy contract - buyer's remorse

I signed a contract with Direct Buy last Saturday (Feb 4th).&nbsp; I am now having second thoughts about paying a monthly fee that I can't really afford, in order to buy a product that I can't really afford.&nbsp; I didn't realize this would be the situation until I rec'd my password to their website yesterday.&nbsp; When searching the website I found many products aren't available to me and that the ones that are, are much more expensive than I had expected. <p>I want to know what my legal standing is - they tell me at Direct Buy that they can't be held responsible for anyone who has Buyer's Remorse....is this true?</p>

You probably do have a right to cancel, but a full answer to that question would require a review of the documentation you signed.  However, you can look at the Consumer Protection Act at the following site:

In particular, see sectrions 18, 42, 47.
