Has anybody on here dealt with ED CAR (RIBRAFF).www.ribtube.co.uk

I ask the question because this chap bought a Rib from me on Ebay on the 16th Feb.
To date he has made many excuses but has so far failed to pay for the Rib. A mere 495.
Have any of you had any business dealings with this man?
Is he an honourable chap who is likely to pay his debts or is he a complete and utter timewaster?
I have already started the non paying bidder business and unless he contacts me to complete the deal then I will as I have done with two previous non paying bidders take County Court Action against him for non payment.
This will of course cost him much more in the long term as I have previously been awarded the price of the item, all legal costs and also expenses.
It will also of course damage his credit rating for the next six years and affect the Good Name of his business (If it has one).
He does not answer phone calls, text messages, emails or voice mails.
His last offer was to put a proverbial cheque in the post on Monday. It has of course never arrived.
If anybody has any information on this chap I would appreciate it and all thoughts and comments are of course helpful.
He might be a Trade Member on here but I would urge you all to be very wary before undertaking any business with him at all.
All he has to do is the honourable thing and pay me.
I shall await his call.

I should think that this post won't assist you much when your case comes up in Court. The Beaks tend to look on Public Laundry Washing with a fairly blighted eye

However

However, they simply apply the case law and the facts speak very loudly for themselves.

Perhaps. Have you ever publicly "named and shamed" a debtor before a court case? My legal lot certainly advised me against it, and in my case, the individual had the goods as well! In any case, I wish you the best of luck in court. I shall think of it as The Clash of the Cartoons

Not in my experience .. case law and experience counts for nout sometimes ... you have to convince the judge on the day .. and if its a technical matter .. that isnt easy !!

Yes twice and as long as what is said is the truth (which it is) and accurate (very) then it does not hinder your case in the slightest.

I am having several PM's already. It seems it has happened before with him.

I know it is a pain to advertise an item, wait until the end of the auction, and then the buyer does not turn up.

But I would not name someone who may well be a member of this site here.

To be honest mate, legally he can now sue you for publicizing his purchase if he wishes!!!!
