It's all about the NAME.
No one wants you, no one is after you. They all want your NAME, and your signature.
What does a signature mean? It is about liability. By signing you accept liability (to the contract presented to you).
So how do I sign, if I have to, without accepting liabilty?
First, we have to understand it is all about contracts, commerce, no matter what the subject is. Therefore they need your signature to get you into a contract.
Let's have a look at what options we have if we DO NOT WANT to sign, but have to.
1. signing UNDER DURESS means, you have signed under pressure.
2. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED means, there are other rights that remain untouched.
3. V.C. (Latin), stands for VI COACTUS, and means constrained by force, you were forced to sign.
When you sign under duress, and to make sure you are not determined as in dishonor and incompetent, you should lawfully write the letters V.C. followed by your name. Example : V.C. JOHN DOE.
If you wish to sign a contract you agree to but wish to have your inalinable rights reserved, there are other ways.
WITHOUT PREJUDICE or WITHOUT PREJUDICE UCC 1-308
This means " I reserve my right not to be compelled to perform under any contract or commercial agreement that I did not enter knowingly, volutarily, and intentionally – I do not accept liability of any compelled benefit, or unrevealed contract or commercial agreement".
