Sources have announced that they have been contacted by an alleged former customer of Emoov who is one of three planning to take legal action against the defunct property portal.
Emoov under its former ownership went into administration at the end of 2018 after failing to secure promised funding.
At the time there was media speculation as to the timing of the administration following a crowdfunding raise earlier in 2018, and some debate about what would happen to customers of Emoov who were effectively left stranded after the company collapsed.
“While we acknowledge that sometimes businesses do not manage to deliver on their promises, in this case we believe that it is the equivalent of a fraud” claims the individual.
He suggests there will be two legal actions; these would be filed against the former chief executive and founder of Emoov, Russell Quirk, and against other members of the board of the company prior to its collapse.
It should be noted that the three individuals registered as sellers with Emoov in November, and are looking for other vendors from around that time who have not received compensation. The three are all from the London area.
It is thought that liability for fees paid to Emoov prior to the collapse rests with Emoov Limited and its administrators, and/or the credit card provider; however this appears not to have yet been tested legally.
