Youcan issue small claims court proceedings www.moneyclaim.gov.uk
againstthe company, but for £117, it is simply not a viable proposition because youwould be required to attend the hearing.
If youpaid by credit card, a claim with the credit card company under section 75 ofthe Consumer Credit Act applicable in the UK, which gives the credit cardcompany liability, jointly, with the trader.
It ishighly likely that there is similar legislation in Australia that would besomething that you would have to take up with the Australian credit cardcompany.
In theUK, the amount in issue as to be over £100 and if this is in respect of twocontracts, it fails on both counts. If the two amounts are one contract, thenit is within the limit.
I amgoing to be brutally honest with you, and that is that even if you were in theUK, this is frankly not worth pursuing unless there is an allegation that thesepeople are trading fraudulently in which case it is then a matter for thepolice. Unless there have been other incidents with other clients, I would notexpect the police to be particularly interested I am sorry to have to tell you.
Iappreciate that this is not the answer you wanted but there is absolutely nopoint in me misleading you. I have a duty to advise you truthfully andhonestly, even if that answer is unfavourable.
I wishI could be the bearer of better news, but I am afraid that I cannot see aneconomical way forward to get this money back for you.
Doesthat answer the question? Can I help further? Can I answer any specific points?
