I have moved this to UK law, where you may have a better chance at an answer involving a UK company. You will have to list a similar question in US Consumer Protection law for the second company, since the UK expert will not know with any specificity what you can do in the US.

can issue small claims court proceedings

the company, but for £117, it is simply not a viable proposition because you
would be required to attend the hearing.

If you
paid by credit card, a claim with the credit card company under section 75 of
the Consumer Credit Act applicable in the UK, which gives the credit card
company liability, jointly, with the trader.

It is
highly likely that there is similar legislation in Australia that would be
something that you would have to take up with the Australian credit card

In the
UK, the amount in issue as to be over £100 and if this is in respect of two
contracts, it fails on both counts. If the two amounts are one contract, then
it is within the limit.

I am
going to be brutally honest with you, and that is that even if you were in the
UK, this is frankly not worth pursuing unless there is an allegation that these
people are trading fraudulently in which case it is then a matter for the
police. Unless there have been other incidents with other clients, I would not
expect the police to be particularly interested I am sorry to have to tell you.

appreciate that this is not the answer you wanted but there is absolutely no
point in me misleading you. I have a duty to advise you truthfully and
honestly, even if that answer is unfavourable.

I wish
I could be the bearer of better news, but I am afraid that I cannot see an
economical way forward to get this money back for you.

that answer the question? Can I help further? Can I answer any specific points?
