Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. What are you hoping to achieve - get your money back?
Yes I was
I have researched it and I believe that they were jkust trying to obtain money by deception. Although everything looked above board. Even their website.
How much did you pay?
Were you ever told it was a recognised course?
No, but I have all of the communication that says that once completed I could go on to live cases
The key here is whether the course was misrepresented to you in a way that any reasonable person would not have been aware that what they were offering was not what they actually claimed. You say they offered you the chance to work on live cases after completion so it depends on whether that is possible, or if it is completely impossible due to regulatory restrictions. I am not aware of the legal requirements of private investigators and what they need to work on live cases so you need to determine that based on your knowledge about the industry, which you would know better than me.
Assuming you were misrepresented you could try and claim they had acted in breach of contract. Whenever a dispute arises over money owed by one party to another, the debtor can be pursued through the civil courts for recovery of the debt. As legal action should always be seen as a last resort, there are certain actions that should be taken initially to try and resolve this matter informally and without having to involve the courts. It is recommended that the process follows these steps:
Whatever correspondence is sent, it is always advisable to keep copies and use recorded delivery so that there is proof of delivery and a paper trail. The court may need to refer to these if it gets that far.
Hope this clarifies your position? If you could please let me know that would be great, thank you
