Need some urgent advice.

 

My nephew who is a student, started working for a new company, got paid on the first week and has not been paid for 3 weeks.

 

Between him and another guy they look after the store. They sell furniture. They would take orders and the company would deliver and collect payment.

 

They have taken several orders and none have been delivered.

 

Over the past 3 weeks they have been promised wages but not been paid. The guys who hired them has not been seen for 2 weeks, will not answer or return calls.

 

I suspect the company will do a runner. out of three contact numbers they were given 2 have been disconnected.

 

What options do my nephew have.

Do you know the trading title of the business?

How are payments for goods made and to whom ?

You may be able to trace/ contact by sending or taking a letter addressed to them in to their bank and ask for it to be posted to them.

Also where does the stock come from are their suppliers delivery notes/invoices on premises.

is it a sole trader/partnership/Ltd. Co.?

All this may help in tracing the owners.

The centre manager should have a contact address on file.

Don't know

There is nothing in the shop, no stationary, no phone in the shop, just a blank order pad to take customer name and number for deliveries.

This definitley seems like a [problem],personally I would first try a recorded delivery

letter to the home address, and inform the police that you are suspicious of the

way the business is conducted, you could also contact trading standards, with this I would try to contact them direct and not through Consumer Direct as it takes a while to get through if at all.

How did he find the job? If it was through job centre plus they must be told.

this must be reported to the police and trading standards asap apart from your nephews problem members of the public could be paying for goods they will never see.

The only other method is a personal call at the owners address but great care

would be needed take witnesses.

Fortunately the customers would pay cash on delivery

You aren't giving us much to work on here!! A 50 mile trip for £600 doesn't seem extreme.

 

If you want to deal with issue, you will have to take some action, not sit back and wait for it all to fall into place. I would suggest a letter before action (LBA), sent recorded delivery to the home address giving him notice that if payment is not received, county court action will be taken.

How do you know I am sitting back and doing nothing.

I know all about LBA and court action , look at the date I joined, so if you haven't got anything constructive KEEP OFF

I am not getting into a slagging match with anyone on here, I have received and hopefully given good advice.

 

Your answers to questions asked have been short and generally negative and give the other CAGGERS very little to work with. However I will leave you to it, as you clearly know best.

The delivery is supposed to be organised by the HO, but none has been done so far.

 

This was supposed to be a company with a factory in China, head office in Birmingham, branches all over etc.

 

Having done some research, it's like a one man band operating from home and somehow managed to get a pitch in shopping mall.
