Two different things.

Your relative didn't know it was the wrong amount. I don't see how he could. He was given an offer and he trusted it. I agree with your relative and hope the company also had to pay his lawyer fees.

The woman in the article was given an offer and accepted it. However, when the checks started coming they were for a much larger amount. An amount she didn't agree to, but she says she didn't remember the agreed to amount was smaller. If when the checks started coming and they were smaller than the agreed amount, I think she would have remembered the correct amount.

Do you think they are very different scenarios?

Jean
