Hopefully someone will have some legal type experience and be able to advise on this.
Sent my car wheel to an individual who has set himself up as an alloy wheel refurbisher and touts for trade on various car forums. He has done work for plenty of others on said forums in the past without issue. He also did my own wheels about 18 months back without issue - service was excellent hence using again.
Sadly there now seems to be a problem. Sent him the wheel and tyre two months ago. Constant excuses about delays with the refurbsihing, courier problems etc. The bloke is harder and harder to contact (have his mobile, work address and email). Getting to the point now I think I may have been 'tucked up' .
Other than ringing and chasing daily any advice? Is it worth contacting the old bill / trading standards? Or will neither care?
To make matters worse I've already paid for the work, plus I'm running round in the car on the sh1t spare
