I paid the cheque for £30,000 18 months ago to a Director of Jobs Builders, on the understanding that it went into escrow and was only used under certain conditions. I have now discovered that the money (the cheque was indeed cashed) has been used and both the accountant and the present MD of the company are refusing to co-operate in any way. The director who I dealt with originally has, in the meantime died and unfortunately I have no written proof of the arrangement. My position is plainly weak, but it would help to know who is liable for the missing money, Smith & co (being the accountants) or Job the builder, who in the long run it was intended for.
