I am an online retailer. I have a problem with a supplier who approached me online as a wholesaler.
first 2 small orders were fine, then last 2 of £2200.00 total,from last december- he never supplied the goods and says he has no money to refund me.
Uk based and payment by bank transfer, lots of email evidence.
on what grounds can i bring him to court? or what can i do?
he maintains his bankrupt and has no assets so not to bother suing him ...
he claims to be bankrupt in an email today, also has an IVA he claims and living with family
However, he has a bank account, and has a shop , whether its in his name i dont know-and is registered as a business online- I didnt think it was possible if hes bankrupt..
He has lied may times so I dont know the real truth
Is fraud grounds for this?
Thank you, ***** ***** most helpful.
There is one other small thing, in the interim period he sent boxes of unordered items in an attempt to reduce his debt-it was all rubbish.
He claims he does not accept returns but I didnt even order them and is using this as a twisted logic as to reduce outstanding debt..
Thank you very much, you have clarified a lot for me
warm regards, Lavinia
