Thank you for your reply.
He is not saying that he has not had the goods just stating that The Design Hub was not trading at the time in question although they have said that I was both a supplier and customer of the design hub in the past and that they had always paid in good time.
they also state that when their employment with Creative Media started, that they recommended L W Oils as a supplier and that I was fully informed of the relationship change, which I didn't.
From the forms received it looks like they have replied to my claim themselves. I did get a phone call in January from the director who said that I might not get my money but that he would try and give me all of the details of the owner so that I could pursue my claim against them and that they had shut him out without computers or anything and that he had lost everything and had no money and that my little amount was nothing compared to what he had lost and then when I old him I didn't believe him he got nasty with me, even said by text that I was showing my true colours because I didn't care about him and only about my poxy money. He is now back at Rotherham in a different unit and all the staff that were with him before he moved to Denaby are all with him now. As far as I am concerned it was The Design hub who had the goods and never stopped trading, and are still trading happily. He is just trying to get out of paying because he lost a big contract with River Island and had to move out. Universal Recycling were the customers he supplied with my hi vis's and they told me verbally that The Design Hub invoiced them but that they did not want to get involved. I know that if a solicitor got involved they could get proof from them which would be enough for me to win my case.
Thank you for your quick response.
I forgot to tell you that I delivered all the goods myself and left delivery notes with him and brought my copy back home but only the 1st was signed as I never used to ask for his signature. The last one is signed by one of his employees but he now states that the third one signed by B Hampshire ( whom is called Billy) is now called Benjamin Hampshire who has never worked for them. I never noticed that bit , so sorry.
so now he is making a new name up to get out of admitting that it is Billy Hampshire who signed it.
he is dealing with it himself as he has responded to my claim as I have had a reply from County Court Business Centre.
Oh and by the way it was Billy Metcalfe who worked for them so not sure who B Hampshire is but that still doesn't mean that he has not had them as he invoiced his customer in the same month that I sold them to him and I knew who they were because he boasted to me the previous time he purchased them from me that he got repeated orders from them and that there would be more and my phone call to them proved it.
Their company house number is ***** and it is the Design Hub and Print Media Ltd whom have not gone bust or into liquidation.
I am going to pursue it and go to court if I have to but I have to reply and wont admit to the scanning of signatures until it gets to courts. I will brave it out and say that I have evidence of them receiving their goods and hope that he backs down instead. If he doesn't I will have to tell the court that I had to do it as a last resort as did not want the B ..... getting away without paying seeing as he had a holiday at the back end of last year and has just had another one which looks like the grand canyon so if he can afford holidays he can afford to pay me. Unlike myself, I have not had a holiday for 4 years and before that 15 years. Thank you for your help, which has given me the strength to go through with it. If it gets to court I can always tell the judge to request proof of invoiced goods to Universal Recycling which will make him the liar that he is. Kind Regards
