Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return You do not need to wait here as you will get an email when I reply.
You should to write and set out your losses and ask for a refund within 14 days or say you will go to Court. Make sure you send this recorded delivery and keep a copy. If they refuse then you can issue proceedings which can be done online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk or by competing form N1 at: https://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n001-eng.pdf
The Court will then issue the claim which will be sent to the seller and they will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce it. If the matter is defended it will be set down for a hearing. If the losses are £10,000 or less then it will be a small claim and you do not need representation. Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Thank you for this.....sorry I cannot pay you the full amount but having 'lost' so much and having to make up 'bounced' direct debits as a result, I am literally watching the pennies !!! The problem is I do not have addresses for these people....lots of other people who have been 'scammed' have the same complaints...they seem to be 'invisible'....I have their emails but that is it....can I get their address from a reputable source...do they have to be 'bonded or is there some other way I can 'find them ..? Many thanks !
PS....the link you have sent does not work for me...a page comes up saying 'THIS PAGE IS UNTRUSTED'....
SOOOO amyn other people online been scammed....I have forked out just udner £400 to try for a short term loan of £150 !!!!
Manty of these companies 'hide' their addresses very well, but have found some, to whom i will write tomorrow. If I can get, say, 75% of my 'losses' back I will be grateful....!!! Many thanks for your advice. I can imagine no replies, in which case I will go to the www.moneyclaim.gov.uk site as you suggest....the worst thing is these reprehensible thieves are taking from those who are most in need...utterly despicable. Charging £90 to FIND a £150 loan? unbelievable.
It is 7pm....if you are not online for a follow-up by say, 9pm, will just leave you the 'excellent' face' feedback !!!
In case I miss you..I just wanted to ask ONE follow up question....when I writeto these robbers (!) do i I give hem my bank details into which I want them to refund the money...i.e. 'my ort code is....' and 'my account number is......' ?
Ok...yes..excellent...thanks so much.....thought giving them bank details might be a bit dodgy. Any good saying I will write to my MP....(he's chairman of he1922 committee...)
That's my last question. Thanks again.
Fantastic..... Fingers x'd this works.
