Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.

Expert:  Ben Jones replied 1 year ago.

What reason have they provided for the delay in paying you?

Expert:  Ben Jones replied 1 year ago.

Just thinking about this as you were under Jersey law I cannot really help and you would really need to speak to a Jersey lawyer as the laws there are different.

Hello,
It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thank you!

The Jersey law system is a mafia I have just discovered as I( have contacted 3 lawyers and all of them turned me down after a few days!Should I now revert to a Debt Collector to recover my money?This has ruined my life as since I have tried to cover my debts but when you are down it is difficult to recover from such a fall.See attached,Regards,Ian
Expert:  Nicola-mod replied 1 year ago.
Hello,
I'm sorry - we have not been able to find an Expert to help with this, possibly because it is Jersey law related and needs more specialist help than Experts can provide.
Please understand it is rare for us not to be able to find the right Professional to assist our customers. We can close this question and return your good faith deposit to the original funding source on request.
Please let me know how you wish to proceed and again I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
I hope you will give JustAnswer a try again in the future,

Hi again Nicola,
You didn't answer my question! Should I try using a debt collector?Best regards,Ian
Expert:  Nicola-mod replied 1 year ago.
Hello Ian,
I'm sorry, I simply can't answer your question - I'm not an Expert and I cannot find one. It's can't, not won't! Hence the offer of a refund.
Thank you,
Nicola

OK I accept the offer of a refund but I am so disappointed that I cannot get justice in the UK. THANK you for your help Nicola
