I am not 100% sure - this is the information I have found.
Would it be helpful for me to send the email chain to you?
Yes - Stevee Hunt at Coco Bee Boutique.
The problem is that Stevee asked for the invoice in Coco Bees name months after it had gone bankrupt - she is now claiming the invoice is void.
I originally sent items on a sale or return basis in October last year.
I tried calling several times to see if any items had been sold, no answer.
Please see email chain.
Eventually I emailed in May 2013 and got this reply:
Please can you send me and imvoice for the items also I would love to order a couple more of each item or pearls. Open a new shop this week so asap would be fantastic. The new address would beStevee huntThe little wychwoodWychwood innHigh streetShipton under wychwoodOxonOx76ba
That's great, please can you resend the previous invoice also a signed copy of all sor items provided to the little wychwood. (Please do not indicate coco bee on here as they are two separate companies)I shall return the boxes to you as I already have boxes. Also all jewellery is taken out of the boxes for display.
Hi Richard. Yes I did. A cheque is on ita way to you.
I shall speak to the owner of coco as we have separate businesses now. As he said he sent. Are you sure a cheque hasnt come for that amount in a different name? (Stevee)
Its no longer my company I sold to my partner (Stevee)
I shall chase.Can you resend via email a stock list of sale or return items please
Ita not down to me it's my x business partner. (Stevee)
I have spoken with my ex business partner and the company has liquidised. Sadly no way of getting that money from him. Regards Stevee
I didn't send the cheque he did. But obviously lied. I cannot provide details for him (Stevee)
Please send the money owed and the stock back (or pay for the stock taken).
I shall send good back this week from TLW But no monies are available from coco Bee, should you have chased your money sooner than 7.months this would have been a different situation. Please provide me with a return address
But not possible if the company is bankrupt. That is a fault of ones self
What outstanding amounts
The Invoice 260 and either send back the stock on the packing list or pay for it.
Invoice 260 is now void.Goods will be posted Thursday
Thanks very much for this.
Out of interest what wording should I be putting on my sale or return packing lists to legally insure I retain title until they are paid for?
