Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
Hi there. Apologies for the slight delay. Do you have an address for Mr Smith/Gordon? Also, did he offer the service as a business or as a private individual?
No problem at all and thank you for your response and attachments. Please leave it with me. I am in court today so will prepare my advice during the day and get back to you at the earliest opportunity. There is no need to wait here as you will receive an email when I have responded. Thank you.
Thank you for your patience. It is unlikely that this would be considered a criminal natter r dealt with by the police o whilst there is nothing stopping you from reporting this to them, be prepared to be told it is a civil matter. In that case you would have to consider the legal route in order to try and get any money or items back from him. The company is registered in the UK which is good and whilst that is the case it does appear to be a rather new company registered only 6 months ago and who knows that assets or money they have. So it could be that you make a claim against them only to find out they have nothing or just go bankrupt and cannot satisfy any debts they have with you. In that case you could consider pursuing the individual if he was involved in fraud and these actions resulted in the company having no money or being able to pay you or its debtors. Either way you will have to go through the small claims court for this as that is the venue where you must pursue civil disputes like this one.
This is your basic legal position. I have more detailed advice for you in terms of the exact steps you must follow to take this further, which I wish to discuss so please take a second to leave a positive rating for the service so far (by selecting 3, 4 or 5 stars) and I can continue with that and answer any further questions you may have. Don’t worry, there is no extra cost and leaving a rating will not close the question and we can continue this discussion. Thank you
if you dealt with a company then the fact that the company is not named after him would not matter. So ***** ***** Ltd is the entity against which you would have a claim, assuming it is that who you contracted with. You can indeed proceed with a small claims court claim online, I can discuss the steps you need to follow, if you could please leave your rating then I can continue, many thanks
