Crash agrees to have Steve represent him in various transactions as an agent to secure him performance contracts and endorsement deals.
Crash writes a letter to Bob that Steve is his agent. Unbeknownst to Bob, Crash specifically instructed Steve to only make endorsement deals with Bob. However, Steve signs a contract for Crash to attend a birthday party performance.
In all other cases, Steve has express authority to enter into any contract on behalf of Crash. So Steve makes a contract with Jimmy for a performance at a bar. Jimmy knows Steve is an agent, but he doesnâ€™t know who Steve is an agent for.
Finally, Steve makes an endorsement contract with Fred.
Fred has no idea whether Steve is representing anyone.
