We too where caught by ELS Cannock we saw a Sale Advert in the Express and Star newspaper and we went in the store a put £50 cash deposit on a 3+2 seater leather recliner sofas, we where told by the sales person, Marie that we had to pay the outstanding ammount of £648 by 3rd September 2010 so we went to our Nationwide Building Society on 2nd September and asked for a Society cheque and like fools took our payment in on the same day, apparently they ceased trading on 3rd September. On the 8th September we read in the Express and Star newspaper Furniture store besieged by angry customers I thought I was dreaming at first.

The next day 9th September we went to Nationwide BS to ask if they would cancel the cheque but they told us they could not do so as it was a corporate cheque, we even told them the owners of the store where less than honest traders but no use, i even emailed the chief executive of Nationwide but still would not cancel the cheque which we found really frustrating as even until 1st October the cheque had not been cashed. really depressed by 8th October the cheque had been presented for cashing I guess by the Insolvency Practitioner. I guess we will if we are lucky get a small ammount of our £698 back but I do not hold any hope of any money back.

What I find most annoying is we paid £698 to see, smell and sit on a leather sofa once, really depressing situation.

I phoned JD Freeth and left details an Consumer Direct but not much help toothless to bring these crooks to book. Any Advice would be welcome!

OK, interesting development for me, got a refund this week, completely unexpected from my Visa Debit provider. I am still down by the deposit but at least I have the bulk of the cash back now.

 

I am still smarting that Lord's live in near mansions near [edit], they make a mockery of what honest tax paying people consider to be a decent society. They get away with it because they have found a way through the red tape that allows them to waltz through life [edit] people of their hard earned money and calling it a business failure. The victims get directed to the official receiver or their credit card provider and the perpetrators run off to the next company that they have already got setup. The police aren't interested because it is basically another failed company in a recession and trading standards aren't interested because the company has folded. This incident has seriously knocked my confidence as a hardworking law abiding sort, I find myself in daily situations asking myself "What would Gary Lord do?" and why the hell should I do any different? It works for him clearly.

 

Anyhow, I am glad to have had the cash returned, but really I only have it temporarily, part of the costs of bank charges go towards paying people back in these situations so I guess I am just going to end up paying it out again, just over a longer term.

 

Have fun all, as others have said, go to the receiver, send everything recorded and then go to your bank. Your bank will try to fob you off, but don't let them, insist that you get the forms to fill out and give them as much information as you can.

 

Over and out.

Their day may come yet, Trading Standards are still looking into them. Let's hope common sense dictates and that these people are prevented from trading again, fingers crossed.

It is a shame that they are getting away with Blue Murder, we are fortunate we got our Money back, but like you and me, it's all about the Principle. How they can get away with it and keep on doing the same [problem] no matter which name they are using.

I thought they might be at least be on Watchdog, but no who do I come across is DFS, I think I would give DFS more credit then what Mr Lord has done to all us hard working people. Well it goes to show if you don't fit the Picture they don't want to know, no matter how many have complained, but I'm sure they have research team for that.
