Few year ago i was dragged through the courts, yes a car, claiming car was = misdescribed, faulty since collection, onto car hire, lost wages, stress, storage, and then costs, up to £3k for the additions alone, maybe more, judge to decide.

This customer had been looked after 100% up to the point they broke it, clearly not my problem, even though tried to help them in that department, so it turned sour, demanded full refund, nothing less, it would have been easier to just cave in, [ and cheaper if guilty] but, explained to them in detail, calmly, not my problem, so they decided to put me through 9 month of paper work going back and forth through the court system, hours and hours researching how the "claims" system works etc etc,

As you know its 50/50 with these cases, so always a concern, so, with proper methodical defence i got a case dismissed, they appealed, and got a case dismissed again.

 

Well, as you do, you tend to keep your eye out on these kind of people, and i learned yesterday, there "business" has gone bust :lol: AND they have missed out on the grant:D

nasty people................what goes around..........

True the isn't it what goes around comes around we should always treat people how we want to get treated in return

theres is business owner in the paper claiming covid 19 ruined both businesses that they own around here 

yet there has been slow decline in both business for years due to there customer care and attitude . One of there businesses has been on the market for sale 3 years long before covid was even heard off . 

So i do believe in karma as you say what goes around comes around

Remember the prestige section in the auto trader as well as the bargain buys section there used to be free ads for the public paper here too came out on Saturday and one on the Wednesday

Years ago i remember a friend in the trade when i was starting up gave me the guys number to advertise it saying he was sound was something like £10 for the 2 cars and he would give you one for free and to keep the business he would advertise them in both papers and wave the fee for the Saturday one 

i had 3 cars in both for two weeks no takers 

advertised all 3 in autotrader phone rang off the hook 

but when the buyers came to buy them id say out of interest where did you see the ads all three said the free ads paper after i paid for autotrader 

Funnily enough was the only time i had much success with that paper
