Text Message as Signature: Be Careful What You Agree To

Text message signature Columbus, OH

We regularly try to remind business owners and nonprofit directors that they should not do business on a
handshake. Too many problems creep up when the terms of the deal aren’t documented in writing,
especially as time goes on. But a recent case involving text messages illustrates not only when a written conversation might serve as a binding contract but when the terms of that communication might also be construed as a personal guarantee by the person sending the message.
