Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
You need to write and set out your losses and request a refund within 14 days or say you will go to Court within 14 days. You should make sure you send this signed delivery and keep a copy.
If they do not refund you then you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can either do this online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk or by completing form N1 http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n001-eng.pdf and take it to your local County Court.
The Court will then issue a claim which a copy will be sent to the Defendant who will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce.
If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim so you will not need legal representation. Over this value you would need representation for trial. You only need to attend the trial at the end and if you win you can claim the costs of coming to the UK for this.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

I paid 6.000$

I want Compensation

How much can I take for compensation ?

I'm having problems in Money Claim , How much should I wait for their procedure?

Can you help me more or suggest me someone I need help.

Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
Up to £10,000 is a small claim. So I would only claim £4000 extra on top.
You just need to register and complete the form online.

Alex I didn't see the person we only mailed and talked in the phone so I dont know If that company still exists, so If i make the claim for that company and dont exist will I only lose the money(fee) ?
P.s I found the CEO's name of that company , and maybe he is the person that i made deal and chat with, because that person gave me a false Name "Joe Teddy" , so tell me what to do and expect from the claim.
Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
Yes you would only use the fee.
You can check to see if the Company exists at:

Alex today I tried to request judgement , i couldnt request the judgement in any forms , not in the default judgment , nor in admission judgmenet , It says that the "Judgmenet cannot be requested because the selected defendant has been barred"
Can you tell me what this means, I also asked them but they take time to answer, please help .
Thank you.
Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
This means you cant enter Judgment. I dont know why the Court will tell you.
Alex
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I know, but Im asking avout the reason why not?
Has the defendant got a lawyer and case started or what happened ? Which can be the reason in these cases ?
Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
I dont know why, only the Court can tell you. They may have filed a defence or acknowledgment of service.

If you do not have a UK address, you must instruct a solicitor within the UK to file Notice of Acting on your behalf if you wish to continue with your claim.
