|| Selling Online and Paying in Time?|
The WDA's press centre is running a story under the heading of- Selling Online and Paying in Time, (www.wda.co.uk ) I am personally waiting for Antur Dwyryd Llyn to pay a bill for £350 for goods they purchased off me, that they received on 17-8-03!|
The fact that my bill says "terms are strictly COD" seem to have been totally ignored, it seems rich therefore that the press release says-
"Terry Williams of Antur Dwyryd Llyn, who are supporting the event alongside Gwynedd Council, commented: “I would strongly recommend that representatives from local organisations come along to one of these sessions as there will be plenty to benefit from.
“The arrival of Broadband in many parts of Gwynedd is opening up new opportunities for local businesses and we are fortunate to have a great team at the ICT centre in Penrhyndeudraeth who are able to help people make the most of these opportunities.”
I thought it was Terry Thomas who was that famouse 'Cad' and comedian (I'm not talking computer aided design here!)
, and not Terry Williams, who'm obviously has a wry if not warped sense of humour.- The benefit we would like is for you'r company to pay it's debts, and beleive it or not we had heard something about broadband coming to many parts of Gwynedd!
If this seems rather obtuse, here are scans from recent letters received by myself, from Antur Dwyryd Llyn-
nice one Dafydd , so within 10 to 14 days I could expect a time frame for payment off Antur Dwyryd-Llyn, nice to see that the local business development agency had stopped playing football in the north of England and had returned to do the work it was supposed to be doing!
then I received this from Antur Dwyryd-Llyn-,
Well we are still waiting for payment....... we don't doubt that you wrote the cheque on the 4th of may 2004 a full nine months after being invoiced, but - we are still waiting for it to reach us! patience is a virtue, but this is taking the piss! ,
The last time we tried to contact the number in the last letter, the phone was hung up on us because we had the audacity to ask for a Welsh speaker!
After numerouse phonecalls, we will have no other recourse other than take Antur Dwyryd Llyn to the small claims in order to to be paid for goods they received over a year ago!
To make sure that you finally understand what we are saying here we will be forwarding this page to you, and the local press -
so when it says- " small businesses in Caernarfon and the surrounding area will be able to gain free and practical advice" does that mean advice on not paying local small business's bills, or am I just a tad too synical and sarcastic after waiting only a year?
anyone wishing a right of reply can post in the comments!
It is only after many phonecalls to try and resolve this (i.e. get the bill paid) that this matter is being given a public airing.
