    We received a quote from a company in Italy for 500 euro. They said they misquoted us and said we actually owed 2400 euro, which we paid and then they asked for another 500 euro after we payed.

    Are there legal concerns we should have if we don't pay the extra 500, given we already paid almost 2000 over the original quote?

    A quote to do what? Was this company selling something to you in exchange for you paying 500 euro? What was the thing? Can you not get this thing from a U.S. based company (assuming you're based in the U.S., which you might not be)?

    Was there a written contract? And you've now paid 2,900 euro? Or have you only paid the 2,400?

    Given that you've provided no context at all, I don't even know what this question means.

    Presumably, you're not going to get whatever it is that you are seeking to get unless you pay the additional money, but you apparently have no guarantee that you'll get it even if you do pay the additional money. Nor do you have any guarantee that the company won't continue to ask for more and more money. And the amount of money you're talking about isn't worth suing over (2,900 euro is a little over $3,400), so you're basically throwing money at this company in the hope that you get what you're seeking.

    Smells like a scam.

    Somebody in Europe found and American cash cow and is milking it as far as it can.

    New York according to IP address.
