i am looking for leagal advice on company law on escorting companies
i have joined a company called madisonhills escorts agency paid alot of money to this company and never recieved any work what so ever i ve checked there website and there website most of the time is blocked
i have rung them numerous ammounts of times and spoken to them and sying that they will find me work but they havnt. i have joined them since april 2012
i have contacted trading standards
No i havnt signed any kind of contract
Right - and what is it you want to achieve, your money back? How did you pay for it?
Yes i paid partially with transfer funds from credit card plus payments via weston union
Do you have an address for them? Are they a Ltd co?
I have an address for them
Do you know if they are Ltd Co or partnership/individuals?
I have an address and phone numbers from them
What name did you pay? What shows on your credit card?
Not sure if they are ltd but i could find out
My full name
Yes please do - if you paid by card it will have a name on it, their name not yours :)
It will be names yo certain individuals
The name of the person/company that debited your card - it will show on your statement?
The names are certain individuals
If that is the case then you have a contract with the individuals. You should write to the address that you have and say you want a refund within 14 days otherwise you would seek to issue a small claim. If they refuse then you can issue a small claims claim which if you also paid part by credit card then your card issuer is also jointly liable under the Consumer Credit Act.
By email or by letter
You would be able to issue a claim online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk, or complete form N1 http://hmctscourtfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n001-eng.pdf and give it to your local county court. The Court would then issue a claim and you can name add the individuals as Defendant(s) as this does not cost any extra. The court will then send in the claim form to these people. If they do not defend it then you will be able to enter Judgment and seek to enforce the order. If it is defended then the Court will allocate the matter to small claims and then list the claim for trial. This will be in an office (Chambers) rather than a formal open Courtroom.
A hand written letter or an email.?

Yes if you owe a lot of debt and little in assets an IVA or bankruptcy would be an option
Would it be still advisable to still contact my creditors and the credit reference company
I would yes just to explain as they are more understanding if they are in contact.
Is still ok to contact them because the debt managment company said that i should not contact them at all it says that in there terms and conditions
If it is their terms and conditions then you should not. If it is not included in the terms then yes you can. Check the terms
