    Blimey. You got 5 days for nothing out of an agent. That's quite a result.

    But that's the only good news. Be happy with it and get on applying for new gigs as there is nothing else for you here.

    Honestly PC. That is the biggest load of rubbish you've posted to date. There are many reasons there in a termination clause in there.. Most B2B contracts have them and nearly all B2C's have them.

    So you've nothing to sign that details payment terms, termination clauses and so on? So you go back to the agent and ask them for it.

    Advert is meaningless, you are a 'contact'or.
