It was three weeks after payment and now its five weeks after payment. Went to his factory and nothing done yet for my chairs.
Not yet asked for a refund but came across other three complainants who said they are also in the same situation and the supplier is claiming that he is facing cash flow problems
R40 000 and its the full amount for 250 chairs
Its for a church and its value of assets are less than R2 million. The church is based in Zimbabwe but was buying the chairs on their behalf since I am a member of the church and reside here
I looked for the supplier and was discussing the quotation with him. Payment came directly from the church' bank account in Zimbabwe into the seller's bank account here in South Africa. The seller knew that I am representing the church
1) How much do the attorneys costs on average per hour
2) Do I need to report to a police station first before approaching the attorneys
3) Can I go to the court and sue with costs
