Has anyone had any success in getting their money back from a company that took a deposit and then ghosted them?
Hi all. My parents arranged for someone to do their bathroom last September and paid £1000 deposit (bad idea but they now know better!). To cut a long story short they constantly gave excuses and didn’t turn up to do the work. Multiple times they stated they would refund but nothing received. We tried to contact the police who have no interest, we’ve been dealing with the MSP who deals with Trading Standards but they have been equally as unhelpful. Bank unwilling to help as they say it’s not fraud and that his bank account is empty. We now have a group of at least 10 of us in the same boat whereby they have taken a £1000 deposit then ghosted them. When we have sent them messages we have all been blocked. Just last week it transpired they have since set up another company under a new name. Any suggestions? This guy must be fleecing a grand a day off people 🤷🏼‍♀️ TIA
