Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today.
This is unlikely to be treated as a criminal offence and instead you will find that the police state it is a civil matter as this was really a contractual situation where the auctioneers have acted in breach of contract.
Therefore if you have not received the money you were due, you can pursue them further in the civil courts by making a breach of contract claim and seeking compensation to the value of the property left with them
Can I do this through the small claims court and is this an expensive option or do I need
what is the value of the goods?
I can only estimate but it would be in the region of £200 depending
on bidding etc
ok then yes this would be easily dealt with in the small claims court, you do not need a solicitor to take this further
Can I do this online
you can start the claim online at www.moneyclaim.gov.uk but you will eventually have to send paper documents as well
Thank you for you help .
you are most welcome
