    • Why don't you actually READ the sellers advert before talking tosh. The seller's advert offers an optional  12 months breakdown warranty cover,  warranties generally do not cover anything related to wear and tear and especially everything on an old banger will be excluded.  OP should have studied the terms of any such warranty before purchasing it, if he did purchase it.     Also, the sellers advert at NO point states the car has NO faults. READ the sellers advert before jumping to huge conclusions.

    • How did you purchase the goods? (instore or online)   How did you pay for the goods? (cash or card and which card method if paid by card i.e. debt card etc.)

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

it doesnt matter that the contract wasnt signed, that is a red herring so not worth mentioning again in this dispute.

So you write a letter stating that  worked xx hours between such and such dates at the agreed rate of £x.xx per hour and demand that the money is paid within 7 days or civil action will be taken to recover said monies for breach of contract..


It can be that simple.

If she pays with up with tax and NI deducted you check with HMRC that she has paid them the correct money

The above advice is sound. One chance to resolve and a reasonable deadline for doing so, then follow through with the threat. MoneyClaim for breach of contract and a demand to be paid what is due. You can claim for reasonable costs for time, copying, stamps etc and also add the fee for lodging the claim to the amounts owed plus interest.


Make sure that the claim is served to the Defendant at the correct address and in the correct name. Unfortunately making the claim and getting a Judgment doesn't necessarily just result in the money being paid. You may need to pay more for enforcement, and if the claim is made against an insolvent company you may never see a penny. That isn't to say that you shouldn't proceed with the claim, just that it may be necessary to take professional advice should any next steps be required

Any advice given is done so on the assumption that recipients will also take professional advice where appropriate.
