I have a loan (still within SOL) that was sold to another company for collection a few months ago. That company has sent me verification of the debt in the form of the loan agreement and my payment history. The loan was initiated online, so there is no physical signature. The bottom of the loan agreement provided to me says that I acknowledged receipt of the agreement by checking the submit button and state that I have read and agree to the terms and conditions. It further says I acknowledge and agree that any digital or electronic signature represents my signature on the agreement. The loan agreement sent to me does not include a signature line or any mark claiming to be an electronic signature. Here are my questions... Is the act of clicking a button sufficient to eliminate the need to show an agreement was signed electronically? How would a collection agency prove to a small claims court or arbitration that a button was clicked (or an agreement was signed electronically)? It seems as though there would almost need to be an activity record that includes the IP address of a visitor, time of the visit, their actions (button clicks), and keystrokes (signature). Thanks to everyone in advance for your feedback and input.
