Jason, an unemployed
old who left school at 14,
entered into a contract with Brown
Suppliers Pty Ltd.
Brown Suppliers is not a listed public company.

would receive a different electrical appliance each month for the next 12 months. The goods are
supplied at retail prices but with a 30 per cent surcharge for interest and service. Jason finds out

unaware the contract was for 12 appliances (he thought it was just one) and so he now feels the
contract is unfair.
as to any rights he may have
under the unconscionability
provisions in the Australian
