As with nearly every other thread I have read I sent my iPhone 4S to Cash4Phones who had valued at £186.50
this was just a few pounds more than any other recycling site and was £60 more than the Apple Store offered.
It took around 2 weeks for Cash4Phones to respond
I was unable to contact them without entering the barcode that I had sent with the phone alarm bells started to ring.
When C4P did respond they had revised their offer down to £65.27 due to excessive wear and tear and the fact that the phone was locked to o2.
Whilst I rejected their offer their SagePay system to pay the £8.95 return fee didn't work.
I emailed through their website 6 times and never once received a response.
I had taken my iPhone into the Apple Store who had commented that the condition of the phone was good
as I had kept in a case with a screen protector and I had posted to C4P in it's original box so damage in transit couldn't have occurred.
I have subsequently completed a Money Claim Online (cost of £25) and again C4P haven't responded so
today have requested judgement.
I would guess that C4P have hundreds of CCJs against them already but can still continue to trade and will get away with not paying any money whatsoever.
I don't expect to ever see any money or my phone again and now wish I had donated this to charity rather than the robbers that Cash4Phones are profit.
Also strange that my Hotmail account reports the two email communications that I have received from C4P as unsafe and fails security.
If anyone has any ideas on any other steps I can take I would appreciate the advice,
I would like some recompense although unlikely so my main aim is to take action to have them closed down.
