What would you like to know about this please?

Is this a genuine organisation or have I been done out of £49 as I have no means of contacting them can you advise please
Expert:  Jo C. replied 23 days ago.

I haven't been able to find anything on this company.

However, unless they have the direct authority of the local council they have no way of issuing blue badges. Blue badges are a scheme offered and run and only granted by the local council and their agents. No private company has authority to do so.

Can I clarify anything for you?

what do you advise me to do?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 22 days ago.

I'm not sure there are any magic wands really.

To be wholly honest, for £49 it isn't worth suing.

If you paid by visa then you could try to claim it back from your credit card company.
