  1. Hi, I hope you lot can help as I've lurked here but only decided to sign up, I have GAD so this has honestly been keeping me up for the past 3 days. I bought a Corsa from a guy 20 miles away, I don't know if he was an actual trader or a private guy, he said he buys cars and resells them, I collected the car from his house and paid £2150 via bank transfer. Once getting home I only noticed he gave me the V5 full, rather than just the new keeper details. The problem is the registered keeper details don't show his name & address, it's the guy he bought the car from. Okay, so
  2. A few days ago I completed a few transaction over LocalBitcoins.com to a buyer named Muumbis (currently blocked) who seemed to be a trusted user, had good feedback and 2 months of multiple transactions. The buyer sent me the funds through a PayPal transfer, and then I proceeded to send/release the bitcoins to his account once the money hit my account. These transactions were very profitable to me, amounting to about 40% of profit over the then exchange price of bitcoin. Only after 6 PayPal transactions amounting to a total of around £11000, I noticed that the person’s details included i
  3. I think I may have been scammed .Yesterday I filled out a survey for Lidl, the usual questions how did you find the checkout process etc After I had filled it out it said congratulations you have won a prize, so I followed the link filled out my name & address etc then it said I had to pay for delivery £4.99, this is when alarm bells should have rung but it showed supposedly feedback for the product, so I decided to go ahead and give my debit card details, idiot I know. After the thank you etc I checked my email inbox & it states that I will sent further goods & will be c
  4. Im looking for advice on what i can do next as im lost and just going round in circles. In october we noticed that for a £20.00 Sim only deal with vodafone the bills were coming in considerably high and occured a few bank charges because of this, We then proceeded to ask Vodafone to supply a full itemised bill so this could be investigated. It turns out that 3 x £30 were been taken from the account per month from September 2015 to December 2015 by a company using premium rate messages by the name of MiraGames. We began to query this with vodafone and was promised a full investigation
  5. I might have been deceived or involved in illegal activity? I'm buying a property from an auction . The seller of the property isn't the owner of the property. It is an investment company that has signed an agreement with the real landlord. Their completion date is the same as my contract with the investment company but an hour earlier. The reason I think it might be fraud is because we have dealt with the investment company solicitors in the past. Their solicitors didn't want to say too much but they hinted that they wouldn't deal with that company again and what t
  6. We had a letter from Motormile finance saying we owe money on a payday loan . We are retired and elderly we have never taken out a payday loan We have reported it to the Police and our bank . We do not want to contact Experian credit check as we do not want to put our card details on line . We did reply with an email apparently this gives them more info to pester us very very worried
  7. Hi All any help would be appreciated. I have purchased an item on ebay, and the seller asked for payment by Bank transfer. I (stupidly) sent him £260 from my nationwide account. He then gave me a fake tracking number for the item, and of course nothing arrived. I have contacted him about this, telling him I will contact the police etc and he could not give a flying.. . To be fair his English makes me wonder if he is about 7 years old. contacted my bank. Won't help, cannot get the money back. I mean I am guessing my money is gone. Forever. But I h
  8. I got a quote from a Kent company to have my smashed double glazed window replaced, and I am still waiting for the work to be done. I paid a deposit of £50 by cheque - I'm I likely to get my money back. Who do I contact? - I have called the company on numerous times, but no reply, I even emailed them. Have I been scammed? They seemed very professional, I got a receipt on a very professional paper. The company is www.windowmedickent.co.uk All they have is a free phone number, which I thought was a reputable company. Can anyone advice where I go fr
  9. I bought a car on March 4th 2013 from a car dealer who trades from home. I paid £1700 for the car (2002 Focus ST170). It was up for £1995, i knocked him down to £1700. When i took the car for a test drive there was a random light on the dash, the dealer said it was the traction control. I trusted him, as he obviously knew about the car...or so i thought. This light turned itself off a day later. So i wasn't too concerned. It turns out it was a coolant warning light. It never returned after about 3 days of having the car. Within a week the Engine Management Light came on, i bought a O
  10. I agreed to buy a piece of furniture on eBay. It was a buy now auction. A s soon as auction ended I contacted the seller to ask how they wanted payment and to arrange collecting piece of furniture. (As it was collection Only). The seller never responded to my messages. I continued to try and contact them for 4 days but never got a response. 5 days after auction ended i got a message to say a unpaid item dispute had been opened. I did not want to get a unpaid item strike so I stupidly paid for item through PayPal. I continued to try and contact s
  11. Hi there, please forgive me if I have posted this in the wrong section. I am looking for a little advice as to how to handle an ebay buyer protection dispute. If I can just provide a little back story; I won 2 auctions on ebay for the total amount of £74.01 I bought 30 cloth diapers and 60 bamboo fibre diaper inserts, I paid immediately through paypal which is linked to my visa debit card. I received 2 small envelopes (2 auctions) with 1 insert in each. (not even bamboo and worth virtually nothing). The items received I signed for at my door. I contacted the seller asking
