Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Do you know their name and address (dont give it here, but do you have it)?Alex
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://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/hmctsformfinder/n1-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.
As its over this amount then you would need representation. But the fact we are in the EU (for the time being) means you can bring a claim here.
They may contest jurisdiction and you may need to attend Sweden for trial.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Well that depends on a view the Judge takes. Usually claims are transferred to the Defendant's home Court.
So in this case it would be Sweden. You could argue it should be here as this is where the contract was formed.
But that may be an argument for another day.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
To take it to Court you are looking at about £40,000 for a UK trial
You may be able to get a no win no see Solicitor to consider this for you
Can I clarify anything else for you?Alex
Yes but if you win then the Court can order the other side to pay your costs.
Does that clarify? Alex
You may consider reporting this to the Police instead as fraud.
It may be far slower, but there wont be a cost to youAlex
No, not at all if he is under age.UK Police. They can refer it to Sweden.
Does that help? Alex
Good luck. Alex
