Yes FWS was a Ltd Company. No I do not know who liquidators are.
I do have a storage account with LCB (ref:-MCB003) and they have confirmed that I have 3 cases of wine under my name in that account. I can take this out at any time and am paying a fee for this facility.
LCB will only confirm that a deposit exists under Peter Ta's account ex owner / director of FWS.
I have no address for Peter Ta.
FSW said the wine would be delivered to LCB and stored in my account that they would set up. This was done and my first batch delivered without problem. (See above)
If Companies House agrees to restore FWS would I incur expense? Would I inform them of the full story?
I have checked the FSA register and can find no reference to Peter Ta or FWS.
I would like to thank you for your assistance with this matter and I will follow your advice and e mail Companies House and see what they have to say.
Thanks I will let you know.
Just to ley you know- Companies house has been back to me stating that they have no statutory or investigatory powers and can not help. I have reported this for fraud but also had no response.
Looks like another one gets away with it.
The wording I gave to Companies house was:-
''Not only am I asking for any advise that you may be able to give but also due to the fact that the directors failed to give notice of the dissolution and that the company may still have assets that it be restored and properly investigated''.
Just to give you an update and some feed back.
Companies house have now come back to me and advised that FWS Ltd was not dissolved by voluntary dissolution by the directors but due to the non filling of up to date accounts and annual reports.
They also advise that I look at the information contained on there web site in respect to restoration.
I can only conclude from this that they are not prepared to assist any further.
Unless you have any other ideas it looks as if I will have to suffer the loss and let what I can only consider a fraudulent act go unchallenged.
Do you know of any companies who may take this on, on a win no win fee basis for example?
