If you are owed money by a courier company in cullumpton please call 08454 040506 and make a complaint.

Trading standards will be looking into it and the more complaints the better!!

Cullumpton bloke got thrown off Courier Exchange. Currently there is an extensive thread about him on Courier Exhange. He owes many of their members money.  Sums of £700 are being discussed.  Two members of Mtvan have already asked for my view of Cullumtpton Man.  One is owed a significant sum of money. He has become rich and (im) famous. He still owes me the V.A.T. for a cash job I did for him 14 months ago.

Kind regards,

Tony

Yeah the same bloke had me over and still owes a company in Birmingham from 2 years ago, just found out from my solicitors before issuing court action against him, the following "We understand that there is a proposal to strike off the Defendant company" note on companies house. DON'T do any work for him.

Make sure you know who you were working for!
there is a LTD company and he has also been trading as a sole trader!

He still owes me £70 from May last year. Strangely, he returned my call a couple of months ago with the usual promise to pay very soon. Slim chance.. John

Sorry guys/gals,but we must listen to what the businessman of the year/century has to say.

The rotten toad owes me £754.80 for 3 runs carried out in September. He keeps telling me i'll be paid but nothing as of yet. The problem with sites like this and courier exchange is that to get the work you have to quote quickly which makes it difficult to check people out properly. I've contacted trading standards as advised by Springer Express.

Manadon Despatch

I fail to understand why people still carry out work for him. He's bloody infamous throughout the trade for not paying. He's already got a list of victims as long as your arm so stay clear of him unless you want to tag on the end of it.

Badger Courier Services

Manadon, I'm quite new to this trade and was caught out by him within 2 months of going independant. I think all sites like mtvan and courier exchange should prominantly display a link to a page of people banned from their site.

Sorry you got caught out Badger for a not inconsiderable amount. I think you will struggle to get your money. Consider it an expensive lesson in being careful about who you work for in future.

It took me 3 months to get a small sum of money off him, £100.00 ish, I think.

This was 3 years ago, and somehow, with all the people he has ripped off, he still manages to trade!

I got paid by threatening to turn up at his house with my mate Mr B Bat, but then I only live 30 mins away, it will certainly be harder for those poor guys he has stitched up, further away, to get their money. Also, watch out for a coleague of his in Wakefield, he pulls the same stunt.

Hi all, if anybody is owed money from you know who, can you email me some details on:

  • money owed
  • when the work was done
  • any relevent paperwork contracts etc
  • when promised to pay and any other information ie addresses etc

There has been a development today which I will not post on here.

I had a phone call from [censored] of Cullompton this morning, presumably in response to what I wrote earlier on this thread. He said he wasn't too far away from me and I should keep my mouth shut if I knew what was good for me.

I do believe that he was trying to intimidate and threaten me so, [censored], just in case you read this ... it didn't work.

Sorry about that, old son!

Have any other contributors to this thread heard from him in this way or was I singularly honoured for special treatment?

Thanks for the call this morning Stuart, much appreciated.

OK, Decision time. Small claims or turn up with a couple of mates early one morning?

all advice gratefully received.

BTW I've found a new sport.... as a free member of uk business forums, I search for any threads collumpton has contributed to and find a way of adding a comment about non payment. I've had my wrist slapped once so far but what the hell, I only joined to find out more about him : )

Ok, I've gone with the legal option (for now). it was posted on the 9th and deemed to be served on the 14th.  he has untill the 28th Jan to respond. I'll keep you all updated with the progress

FAO Badger. On the courier exchange you will find a list of revoked membership dating back several years. Useful tool when deciding to quote someone. Hope this helps for future reference

I see that according to Collumpton Man, on UK Business Forums, that its all your own fault for not getting paid. He says you should be invoicing his Limited company and not him personally.

He also says that if you take him to court and not his Ltd company you will lose. I can't find him on MTvan now, was he listed as a Ltd company on here?

Just seen earlier threads re this point. Sorry, should have read it from the beginning.

3D,  I've since found the revoked memberships but it's tucked away under the services tab and friend culompton isn't listed. It should be a simple A-Z list of links that can be clicked on for more info. When giving quotes time can be of the essence. I'm unable to find where he's said that claims against him personally would be un successfull. I have an email from him telling me to invoice him at his home address, I've not invoiced him as a Ltd company and if you check his website there's no mention of him being Ltd so I think he's on to a loser there!!! I'd love a link to the thread in which he says this

thanks for that 3D. the thread is dated december 2008, It looks like he was sounding people out to see if he could get away with it. I've added to the thread just stating the facts. hopefullt his cronies on there will get an idea of how he conducts his self.

No reply to the court or myself so I've now applied for judgment to be passed. Once I have that I can send the "bailiffs" around!

Did you get the judgement against the man himself or against his Ltd Co ?

Don't bother with the baliffs your judgement gives you the chance to go straight in with the HCEO.


Badger Courier Services

The man himself. When I agreed to do the job, he sent me a confirmation email asking to be invoiced to his name (no Ltd) and at his home address. What's the HCEO? and what does it entail? and what are the benefits?

That woud be a High court enforcement officer, £60.00 charge,
the only thing is do we really know where he lives?
The rest of his life is full of lies why would he not lie about that?
if we send in a hceo you will still pay the money and come up with nothing,
if we can drum up enough of a stink with the trading standards etc they will put him in court and this problem out once and for all!

Before realizing who he was I agreed to do a delivery for said bloke in Cullumpton for today after he called me yesterday. He did say he had a bit of a reputation on the forums but, as I said, I didn't know exactly who he was. We agreed a price and he paid the money into my account as he said that is the way he likes to operate now. He came across to me very well so, notwithstanding the fact that a few of you have issues with him, as long as things continue to go smoothly, I can only post positive feedback when it comes to my dealings with him.

Well done!!
you must be the only courier since the dawn of time that has got any money from him,
 give him his due he does come across on the phone as a decent chap but I think he has got himself into a right pickle and is going about a solution in the wrong way,
we all make mistakes that's only human but as long as they honest mistakes they are excusable but if you compound the situation by trying to BS your way out of it is just sheer folly,
I don't begrudge the guy but stitching people up is not the way to do business
 

Jeremy can have a very polite and courteous telephone manner.

I must admit that I thought maybe I was getting money that was owed to others but, in business, I can't afford to think like that. However, I hope newbies desperate for work read threads like this one as it's easy to be left in the lurch by non-paying subbers, and forewarned is forearmed. All I'm saying is that, on the whole, I have been very fortunate with those I've subbed for. I've often been told I look a bit of a hard b'stard so maybe I come over like that on the phone too!

PTC Sameday

It's also a good idea to talk to other couriers on the phone as they can often offer very good advice when operating in what is increasingly resembling a jungle. Maybe 'Nellie'- the name I gave my new Transit Jumbo - is a apt choice!

Badger,

You probably know this already but just in case, all the fees you pay will be refunded if you win, you can also claim mileage for your trip to the court, can't remember the rate but the judge will tell you, print a google maps route out showing the mileage to show the judge.

Also slap him a late payment invoice as well, if the amount is less than £1,000 it's £40. Just put 'Late Payment Fee: The Late Payment Of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 Incorporating European Directive 2000/35/EC' on your invoice.

Small claim court is you, him and a judge. You go first, he responds, then you have the final say. Don't interput that irks the judge just make notes of anything he says that's wrong and bring it up at the end.

Hi Badger,

Is your court hearing against the Man or his Ltd Company - whichever it is he will say on the day that it should have been the other.

Well this post is still up there since Sat 14th...

I have a somewhat similar issue with a guy we did some urgent work for in January 2009.

We invoiced the individual on 17/01/2009 and passed the debt to our factoring company as normal, they sent monthly statements and attempted telephone contact for 3 months without result so the debt was passed back to us. After many excuses we made a MoneyClaim Online in and got judgement on 21/09/2009. At no time did this person suggest that the invoice, which was made out to him, point out that he was in fact trading as a Ltd. Company (The details were actually on his website in the small print but all the other pages had his business name boldly displayed without the Ltd.)

At the hearing at his local county court on 17/02/2010 the Judge saw through his attempts at name confusion and altered the Request for Warrant of Execution into the name of the Ltd. Company with a now total value of £671.43.

The gentleman concerned has now told me that he has his Ltd Company is now legally disolved yet at companies House the status is "Status: Active - Proposal to Strike off" Company No. 05893238.

Any suggestions - not a lot of money but I believe that he is still operating a similar business.

Put a complaint into companies house, they WILL delay any strike off, place him in court. payontime is northampton county court, when he doesnt pay in a month place it back in court instructing bailiffs. He is obviously trying to dissapear and under to cover of a dissolved company, which is clearly a lie

The think with bailiffs according to 'the man' if  you  refuse them entry there is nothing they can do and therefore seem a little pointless,

I think as a last resort if they person owns property you can get a charging order on the property, You won't get paid quicker but he can't sell that property at all without you being paid first, even if it takes 10 year or more.

what sort of percentage did they offer to buy the debt at? if it's resonable I'd sell them mine and wouldn't lose any sleep about what happend thereafter. I'm sure he didn't lose any sleep over me nearly losing my home over his non payment even though I made him aware of the fact.

Hi, I had yet another phone call from Jeremy Hawke again last Monday, again he promised to pay me the £100 I am owed from him for a job I carried out in March this year. The court papers that were issued were returned from his so called head office at Sowton Business Park Exeter. They said he closed his account down there over a month ago, and left no forwarding details.

Hello - I have joined you all with the sole purpose of finding the "Man from Cullompton" & any help that anyone can give me would be much appreciated & will help me in nailing his B***S to the ground! I am a paying customer - who paid £156 for a 5 day delivery on 3 items - he delivered only 1 & has kept the other 2 items & the remaining courier fee - this was all 7 weeks ago & he will not respond to phone calls/emails or recorded delivery letters. Does anyone know his current address please? I have tried 3, Ways Lane (home) & Sowton Technology Park (business) addresses he gives on his website - but both recorded letters cameback unopened? Kind Regards

Mr Hawke is an old hand at this! I would imagine that registered letters are refused as a matter of coarse as they are never good news for him, Sowton address is a PO box so will not get any joy there, Option 1 report the theft Option 2 shrug your shoulders and next time you use a courier make sure they are trust worthy, (paying eBay rates can often end in tears)

The last comment you make is a complete load of bollcks, it makes no difference to mr Hawke wether its eBay or Sameday, I charge eBay rates as you call them and I can assure you I am more honest than many like mr Hawke who rip people off time and again. I just can't believe the likes of you who just make idiotic comments about eBay goods just because you don't use or offer such services, believe me after 8 years of doing Sameday and getting ripped off by so called trustworthy couriers on the biggest exchange around, I now get paid every day upon delivery or even before delivery and have never been ripped off by COURIERS like the infamous mr Hawke.
