I am getting married on 24.06.16. I booked my Starlit dancefloor last year and paid a deposit of £100. I used PayPal to make the payment as I thought this would protect me if anything went wrong. Well it has, the company I booked with have vanished with mine and everyone elses money. I am gutted as it's only 2 weeks til my wedding and now I have to try to find the money to get another one (if there are any available at such short notice).
I contacted PayPal expecting that I would be refunded but they have come back and told they wouldn't do this as the payment was more than 45 days ago. Of course it was, I am planning my wedding, I had to book well in advance to be sure of getting my date.
Has anyone else been through something similar and was the outcome any different for you?
Not sure i understand you as you can file a dispute in the UK up to 180 days after you paid.
BUT you said you booked it last year so surely that is after 180 days??
All i can suggest is that if you funded that paypal payment via a card then contact your card issuer and see if they will do a chargeback for you.
