I have launched an online petition against Webcreation Uk 6 days ago. Briefly, I paid £1300 + VAT over a 5 month period for a website which was never completed due to outsourced staff in India and general incompetence. I walked away and hired another company which completed my website in 6 weeks. I tried via Santander to claim my money back but was informed that this was B to B and I had also signed their T & C. I reported this company to Consumer direct and Trading standards who were already familiar with them.After a little research I discovered there were many unhappy customers.Today I have been informed by CitizensAdvice/Consumer Direct that a Consumer Organization can bring a Class Action Law Suite against this company. My question is this: Is it possible to bring a class action law suite and if so how many disgruntled customers would I need.I look forward to your reply. Many thanks Iris
System of Law: England-and-Wales
Payment made via Visa debit card - applied to Santander for a full refund. They refused as this was B to B and I had signed their Terms and Conditions.
Reported to Consumer Direct and Trading standards where they hold a file. Neither were able to help.

Thanks for your question. Please remember to rate my answer SMILEY FACE OR ABOVE so that I am credited for my time.But is it a uk company you paid?
Yes it is a UK company.
You can launch a class action but you would be better off just issuing your own small claim.It would cost less and the chances of getting something paid out are higher.You should write and ask for your money back or say you will issue proceedings within 7 days.If they refuse then issue proceedings in the county court.You can do this online at www.moneyclaim.gov.uk - you will have to pay a fee but this will be added to the claimAs it is below £5000 it would be a small clam and you won't need a solicitor.You will be surprised how quick matters are resolved once proceedings are issued.
