    • read the guide CCA goes to the claimant   dx  
    • Hi, yes that is what has happened. The technician originally said that the tyres were for BMW, it came to light in the PayPal disputes I’ve had with them that it’s not only for BMW but certainly not for my car. It seems like everyone I speak to has a different sort of opinion on what the tyres are for. We looked for a branded tyre within a good price range and chose that tyre assuming any tyre on the list would have fit our car.. I shall do that yes I would like the call recording as I am actually quite upset how the lady spoke to us about it when we contacted customer services anyway. Thanks for helping. 
    • By the way, please will you send a subject access request to Halfords and make sure you asked them for call recordings as well as any of the details that you input in respect to your tyre order and any other personal data which they hold on you in any form. Get this letter off to them by email tomorrow and confirm in writing.   I suggest that you send the letter for the attention of Andrea Botha | Executive Contact Manager who will be aware of this situation.   https://uk.linkedin.com/in/andrea-botha-96b565143   I've written to her again and suggested that maybe she doublecheck the situation because of my understanding what you say is correct, then I think that she must badly have misunderstood the circumstances of this. Once again, I understand that you input the details of a Kia and Halfords recommended tyres fit for a BMW. They only informed you of this error after the tyre fitting had been booked. Your initial contact with Halfords after this resulted in a promise to reimburse you and it was only a subsequent contact with another customer services person that they renege on the promise. Is that correct?
    • We ended up with years of Thatcherism last time Labour went off the rails Loony Left - and Foot was nowhere near as loony as Corbyn lunacy   Thanks God the Libdems are better positioned today.   Looooooonnnnggg Past time some of the major unions and sane MP's split. They are almost certain to lose their seats and the country anyway, and union power will be trashed even further under the Johnson/ERG deregulation plans. and Corbyn will still not resign ...
    • Okay. We are very happy to help you get your money back. If you have the evidence that I have indicated then there is absolutely no problem and frankly I don't know why Halfords seems to be prepared to cause such a fuss to deny you your consumer rights and to save her company 40 quid – simply on a callout fee.  Now that I've called their attention to this thread I expect that they they will be following it. If you are prepared to issue a small claim then we will help you all the way including helping you draft your documents. Halfords will be crazy to allow this to continue – but if they decide to get personal about it then they will see you in court but the chances of them winning are negligible. It's up to you. Bringing a small claim is very easy. Your risk would be the claim fee which in this case would be £25, I think and then if they push it to a hearing about a hundred quid which when you win – if you win – you will get back. Of course we will publish the result here and show Halfords up as we have done before. It's amazing to have to go to this kind of trouble.   Once again, I just want to confirm that your case will be that you inputted all the correct details into their website and Halfords returned a particular specification to you which was incorrect. Effectively this means that they are in breach of their contractual duty to supply goods which are fit for their purpose. However, have you checked elsewhere in fact Halfords are correct and that the tyres are not fit for your vehicle. It occurs to me that maybe Halfords have told you that they're not fit for your vehicle when in fact they are. This would also put Halfords in breach but in a rather different way.

Re Google Maps: Note the security van out side ... Land of Leather... Leather Lords Ltd.

Must be delivering wages. Most people will know that Ltd or Limited in a company name is actually a warning and if a company goes bust, the directors/owners can keep our hard earned cash and swan off to their foreign villas.

I rang Sharma & Co today (my receipt says Leather Lords rather than ELS), and spoke to Ian Evans who is dealing with them. Just to repeat the phone no. it's 01214542700.

 

He said that the company will likely go into liquidation shortly, and that there will be a Creditors meeting, I think later this month. My hope is to get some written proof when they go into liquidation, then use this to support a visa debit claim. Although it may not be essential.

 

I guess people who have ELS on their receipts will get something following the court proceedings on 20th Sept?

 

 

 

Re. trading standards, yes I'm afraid I did get a fairly generic reply. They said that they will post details of the liquidator on their website and added some general information about making a claim. There was no mention of action being taken against the company.

 

Having said this I'm sure the more complaints they get from people, the more chance there is of them taking some action. They have to be told that there are a lot of very angry customers, and that this has been going on for a long time. If they don't act, then this needs to be passed on to the media.

 

 

 

As a general comment, I've had several difficulties (all but this one eventually resolved) recently with paying up front for goods and waiting for delivery. Not to mention other service providers who take your direct debit details, inevitably mess up or over charge, then hide from complaints and queries behind call centres. I'm very wary of ever doing this again.

 

Despite (or maybe because of) the recession, more than half of the companies I've dealt with seem to treat customer service as a very low priority once they've got my money. Most examples are not as extreme as ELS, but it still makes buying large items a stressful and wearing experience. And all this in spite of all of the endless irritating surveys and satisfaction forms we end up with :-x

Hope this will help just come across it, Birmingham Trading Standards has posted this article on their website.

 

Birmingham Trading Standards

 

EXCLUSIVE LEATHER SOFAS LIMITED

A winding up petition has been lodged at the High Court in relation to Exclusive Leather Sofas Ltd. As far as we are aware the company has four outlets located at:- Birmingham (Camp Hill), Derby, Luton and Cannock; with Cannock being the head office. All of these stores have ceased to trade.

The petition will be heard at Manchester High Court on 20 September 2010. If the company is wound up an insolvency practitioner will be appointed. It is the insolvency practitioner who will sort out the financial affairs of the company and it is to this person that any complaints about Exclusive Leather Sofas should be addressed.

When we know who the insolvency practitioner is we will update this web page accordingly.

In the meantime, if you have purchased your furniture on finance and it has not been delivered you should write a letter to the finance company explaining the situation, please remember to send this by recorded delivery. The finance company should then release you from the agreement and refund any monies already paid to them.

If your complaint has not been resolved or you paid cash for your furniture you should still contact the insolvency practitioner so that you may be put on the list of potential creditors. The practitioner will then, after paying the main creditors such as the banks and utilities, use any monies which are left over to refund customers.

That is all very well and good, but what [problem] is ......moving onto next? Or do you think he is simply retiring to his mansion in Gaydon?

 

I wonder if that is why ELS (Luton) Limited (Not the same company as ELS Limited or Leather Lords Limited) have moved their registered office back to 41 St Andrews Road in Brum?

Hi,

 

 

04398108 Leather Lords Limited on 31 Jul 2010, his address is registered as:

 

1 John Kempe Way

Highgate

Birmingham

 

On google maps it looks lovely, wonder if he has a leather sofa

 

Will be heading over there for photos at some point.

 

Have fun all.

 

 

This is the address for Leather Lords Ltd, in Birmingham. They changed their addresses to the Birmingham Branch address in March, I have manage to find their address through a bit of research but left the details at home. If people are interested I will post their address later, once I get home from work as I have left it there.

It is easy to get the addresses of the directors and it is available to the general public. Go onto companies house, go to webcheck, search for leather lords, go to the order information page.

 

You will see the registered office has changed twice from the directors residential address. How do you know it it the director's? Go onto 192.com and do a people search for LORD at the postcode and whaala.:lol::lol::lol:

Found a few more:

 

 

SOFA SUPERMARKET LIMITED

41 ST ANDREWS ROAD

BIRMINGHAM

B9 4LW

Company No. 05554849

 

This appears to be an office that they operate from

1 & 2 HERITAGE PARK

HAYES WAY

CANNOCK

STAFFORDSHIRE

 

ELS (Luton) is registered to 41 St Andrews Road, but has 2 directors that are registered to Heritage park. (I am glad that companies house are keeping an eye on this, what kind of frauds could be completed if a register of companies had no spot checking going on.)

Seems that this is an ongoing [problem] and all they do is change the name of the company every time the old one goes bust!

I've reported to the bbc watchdog website too.

 

Hopefully if they get enough reports they will see how many people have been affected and investigate further. I also pointed them to this forum, so they can see the long history of problems people have had.

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.

Only Central news could report on a huge fraudster ripping people off as a Credit Crunch story. No wonder these crooks get away with it with people as sharp as Andy Bevan on the case.

As a manager within a UK furniture manufacturing unit, but as an outsider to the Exclusive Leather Sofa problem I might add, I have to agree with the **edit** family. Although some of the stories regarding **edit ** sound very poor, as far as I understand she is (or was) only an employee. If she was a director or owner then this personal abuse is warranted, as she would be directly responsible for the actions of the company. However in my opinion, it is the responsibility of the company owners / directors to remove any member of staff they believe are acting inappropriately that includes **edit** as a manager, or any member of the team from delivery to accounts.

 

This would suggest, that either **edit** employers were unaware of the way in which she handled customer service and complaints......, unlikely given the number of posts, or they were in approval of her actions and the decisions she made.

 

There is obviously a lot of pain and anger in the air, but directing it to a employee or former employee is not the answer and unfair in my opinion, irrespective of the business or nature of the complaints.

I think you are missing the point. You can be disgruntled with an employee of any company, but take it with the employers. Unless **edit** has a stake in the company, I think your barking up the wrong tree. I don't know what you do for a living, but can you imagine if your company policy was very poor, and you upheld this policy, and as a result your name was turned to mud. Perhaps the pressured of providing for a family forced **edit**to keep her position, perhaps she hated her job? Perhaps she just wasn't very good at customer service or perhaps she was a monster ? I don't know but unless she was the MD i'd reccomend leaving her personally out of the complaints????

 

Only a thought and only my opinion.

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.
