Conclusion

Either give me a full refund or you can give the PC I ordered. CHL-We can't do anything to resolve this case. There is no proof of you buying anything. Alan-fine I'll get my Lawyer to resolve this. Alan arranges to meet his lawyer. Lawyer- Hello. How can I help you? Alan tells his version events that have occurred in the last couple of weeks. Alan-So what do you make of this case? Lawyer-Yes this is very good case Alan. They are breaking the Supply of Goods and Services Act which states that they cannot supply faulty goods and their services are blaming the consumer for lying. Do you have the receipt for the product you bought? Alan- Sorted. Let's pay a visit to PC World. Alan and his lawyer go to PC World. Lawyer- My client ordered a PC three weeks ago and it was supposed to arrive last week but it still has not arrived. Seller-There is no proof that he bought a PC from PC World. Alan- I have my bank statement and I also have the receipt for the purchase of the PC. Seller- That's not even a PC World receipt. Lawyer- Fine, I'll see you in court then. Seller- I was only joking. I'm sure we can renegociate about this misunderstanding. Lawyer- To get a PC the he wanted or a full refund plus compensation. Seller - You can have the PC you wanted Alan sorry sir. Alan- thank you. The case is resolved and Alan gets the PC he wanted and an extra bonus for compensation.
