SALES ON EBAY ARE BINDING CONTRACTS ...
... as a seller found out to her cost when e-sue drafted proceedings for Loss of Bargain.
Our client won this French dining room table from an eBay seller for just £51.00, which was actually worth over ten times this amount. The seller refused to part with the table and refunded the £51.00 via PayPal, telling our client to sort his problem out with eBay.
Instead e-sue drafted county court proceedings for the loss of bargain suffered, which the eBay seller defended vigorously.
The court ruled that the winning bid created a binding contract between seller and buyer, and that the seller breached her contract by refusing to allow collection.
Judgment for over £650.00 was awarded to our client for the loss of bargain suffered. However the eBay seller refused to pay, so e-sue then prepared to take a second charge over her home, resulting in an immediate bankers draft for the full amount.
Our client was unlawfully harassed by Lowell, a debt collector with an unpleasant reputation for chasing irrecoverable and non-existent debts.
When Lowell ignored our client's protests that the debt was not his, he turned to e-sue for help.
We drafted harassment proceedings, served them on Lowell, obtained judgment by default and instructed counsel for the disposal hearing. Read the full judgment here branding Lowell's conduct as 'shocking' and awarding our client £2,869.93 including costs.
Then Lowell defaulted on their own judgment debt so we brought in our debt collectors, County Court Collections, to threaten winding up proceedings. To avoid being shut down, Lowell immediately replied enclosing this cheque.

e-sue were instructed and transferred the case back again and submitted this video clip to the court, resulting in ASDA backing down, withdrawing their defence and settling our client's claim immediately. We refused ASDA's request to take down the video on 'Public Interest' grounds.
