  1. Hi, I paid by Visa debit card as well, and gave my bank the transaction dates & amounts, and emailed them a copy of a letter from Leather Lords stating "they were sorry that on this occasion I had not received their usual standard of service" - pause for laughs - which did the trick. My full amount was refunded on Friday.
  2. Hear hear! I agree completely - I certainly would have no contact whatsoever with anyone from the ELS/Leather Lords sector, and yes, everyone please protect your own identity except to those official bodies who require it.
  3. I just watched the report, LOL! I contacted ITV Central news to point out exactly that, and offered a whole shed load of other info too. They got back to me straight away, seemed v interested. So it's always worth a try.
  4. Hi Farley, if you purchased from LEATHER LORDS, Bham, you should contact Sharma & co, 257 Hagley Rd, Birmingham B16 9NA, tel 0121 454 2700. If you purchesd from ELS (Exclusive Leather Sofas) Bham & Cannock, you should contact KJD Freeth Ltd, Churchill House, Regent Rd, Stoke On Trent, ST1 3RQ, tel 01782 202 020. Good luck.
  5. BRAVO SittingOnTheFloor! Love all the info, love the humour, love the fact that this thing is rolling and rolling like a big fat snowball - I wish it would squash the LORDS! I have today had an email from my local paper who are interested in the story, so maybe at last we will get some real publicity for these scumbags. CAN I KEEP STRESSING TO ANYONE AFFECTED - CONTACT YOUR LOCAL PRESS & RADIO, YOUR LOCAL TRADING STANDARDS (if outside of Birmingham), ACTIONFRAUD.GOV.UK, AND ANYONE ELSE YOU CAN THINK OF.
  6. Hi oldchurch, just cancel your credit agreement, stop your payments. The way I understand it is - the store fraudulently advised the finance copany that your goods had been delivered. The crime is with them not you. Put it in writing to the finance company, and to the store - even tho they are not there - that you are stopping the payments becuase the goods were never delivered. I am sure that the finance company will already be aware of what's been going on. Good luck.
  7. Hi haylou - thanks very much for that info - I have just rang Sharma & Co, & got added to the long list of creditors. They did say that Leather Lords has NOT YET gone into liquidation.... but ELS has, hence the Manchester notice. Thanks again.
  8. Hi amck, great job on speaking to the landlord, and thanks for all the other info. Will you find a few minutes to report to Watchdog as well? I did, it takes literally 5 minutes online, and as other victims have said, the more poeple who do so, increases the chance of an item on the programme. I would just LOVE to see these guys get some real hassle......they deserve it!
  9. Hi all, information here from one of the other threads on this site regarding ELS/Leather Lords. (exclusive leather sofas) It's been posted by Sharma & Co, who were supposed to be deaing with the insolvency. They are NOT, as per their posting below: We were approached by the Directors to assist in placing Exclusive Leather Sofas Limited (Company Number 04290207) into Creditors Voluntary Liquidation but we are no longer instructed in this matter. A winding-up petition has been presented and is due to be heard at Manchester High Court on 20th September 2010 at 10.00am. Our understanding is that this petition will not be opposed. Please refer to the Notice placed in the London Gazette on Tuesday 7th September 2010. Date:7 September 2010 Issue Number:59538 Page number:17280 Publication Date: Tuesday, 7 September 2010 Notice Code: 2450 Petitions to Wind Up (Companies) In the High Court of Justice (Chancery Division) Manchester District Registry No 1812 of 2010 In the Matter of EXCLUSIVE LEATHER SOFAS LIMITED
  10. Hi Jennifer, - sorry to hear you're another victim. Please take a look at two other threads on this site, "exclusive leather sofas" and LEATHER LORDS (e.l.s) BIRMINGHAM. You will see that this family has been at it for years, there are many of us who are in the same boat as you. I have lost £3000. My bailiffs have been trying to collect my money but they closed the store before they could get access. It appears that finally they have gone into liquidation, there is a notice giving details of proceedings in Manchester. Not sure myself yet what I need to do to register my debt, but I will post on the other threads. If I were you, I'd keep checking the other 2 threads, most activity regarding ELS/Leather Lords goes on there. If anyone else reads this thread and is also a victim, please go to the other threads and read. It is quite sickening how they have managed to get away with it for so long. Not such a good start to your married life, but we have all learned a valuable lesson. Best wishes.
  11. "at this moment in time" gives the impression that you WILL know where it is, and WHY is that? and WHO will you tell?
  12. Here's some info from the other thread, (exclusive leather sofas) from another disgruntled soul; "Hi all, The Company has gone into liquidation and to make a claim you need to use the following information Sharma & Co 257 Hagley Road Birmingham B16 9NA 01214542700 tel 01214558254 fax These are apparently the company dealing with the liquidation, hope it helps" Will be giving them a ring tomorrow....... we will see.
  13. The back door is probably open because they hope that the stock remaining will be stolen, this will then reduce what they have in assets, they can say - it was all stolen from Cannock!!!!!! My God, the stuff that these people will do, they are more slippery than a bucket of snails, and much more repulsive!
  14. JIPCUS - No, nothing dodgy about it all except Vikki has got swindled, like the rest of us. And as for your so called "belief" that the directors will open up somewhere else under a new name being just a "belief" - come off it, you must have been a part of what was going on, and to do nothing to stop it then, and probably nothing now to help, just goes to show that you are as bad as the rest of them.Perhaps you're actually one of THEM, trying to get information from all of us. Paranoia setting in? Maybe. If that's not the case, then prove it, you must have imformation that Trading Standards, etc would love to have. GO ON.....DO THE RIGHT THING!
  15. JANE - by reading all the other blogs so far, both stores have been emptied out and abandoned, you will not be able to go and get your missing bits. And I have a sneaky feeling that this company/companies have not officially been declared insolvent, I think they have just packed up and cleared out while the going is good. (for them). I doubt if we will ever see an insolvency notice or liquidators appointed, because no one will know where they are???????? They will, as the very "helpful" ex member of staff explained, simply set up under a new name somewhere else. But I will not give up on this, I am passing everything I have to the Birmingham bailiffs, as well as to Trading Standards and fraud agency. Not to mention local press & radio. You guys over in the Cannock area, you need to do the same, as over here our people have no jurisdiction over Cannock area. Lets all do as much as we can to get these bastards - excuse my language.
