I thought I should post this up, just to make everyone aware of this *seller*and my experience of dealing with him :mad:

I purchased a *freezer room* 11 foot x 7 foot x 7 foot , after seeing it advertised on a well know site.
The seller a Mr Jim Moody of Whitby, a self employed refrigeration engineer, brought it up on a trailer and installed it in my store on 10/12/08.
Wasn’t 100% happy with the installation at the time, pipes installed above door and above electrics... but assumed he knew what he was doing. I gave him 2000 for it and was told I had a 6 month parts and labour guarentee, the distance away was a concern, but he assured me he was often up in Fraserburgh/Peterhead area doing work, so it wouldn't be a problem.
The next day an alarm was going off , so I switched it off and on again, it seemed to stop the alarm, this continued for a week ,I telephoned Mr Moody right away and he said 'he couldn't understand what that was' and said he would get back to me...
The following monday,I put 3 tons of bait in it worth 1500 . A freezer room should get down to -18/-20 no problem, this would go no lower than -14.
Gradually I noticed the temperature was rising and the compressor was running continuously and becoming red hot to the touch and it wasn’t going on a defrost cycle atall, again I telephoned Mr Moody and he said he couldn't come up right away, but would get back to me:rolleyes:
Over the next week the temperature gradually rose and rose and the freezer contents started to go soft. I could wait no longer so I contacted a local company to come and have a look at it to see what could be done.
The engineer told me straight away it was not a proper freezer room, but a chiller room, did not have a door heater or a pressure release valve fitted. The freezer equipment itself was described as 'junk' that had been ’thrown in’ it was infact an air-con unit crudely modified and I was told it was totally unfit for purpose and would never work as a freezer. :mad: If it was working correctly the door would have frozen shut, and without a pressure release valve may burst open. The engineer tried his best to adjust it but there was really nothing he could do to make it work. I was advised to turn it off asap. He couldn’t believe anyone would sell it as a freezer room and expect it to work properly.
I left it running over Christmas and new year,going in every day to turn it off to cool the compressor and using a hair dryer to melt the ice on the fins.
Eventually forced to turn it off on the 3rd January when the temp was 0!
Telephoned Mr Moody same day and told him, said he would come up the next week and he had another unit that 'should work'. Waited a week, then phoned again, told it would be the next week, waited another week, phoned again, no reply. Since then I have telephoned him almost on a daily basis he keeps turning his mobile off, I have tried texting him and have sent numerous emails in reply to his other ads on the same site .He keeps totally ignoring me, I have tried withholding my number , phoning his house,his mobile, gave him numerous deadlines to get in touch.
Gave him several choices to come and fix, refund or pay for repairs, his only response was to turn his phone off, very big of him:mad:
Last week I threatened him with legal action, still no response, even got a friend in Whitby to go and talk to him, he promised him he would phone me, never has. Finally lost patinence this week and I have reported him to trading standards, I am awaiting a reply from them, but I expect to have to take him to the small claims court soon.
He currently still has an ad on that site, I have contacted the site owners to make them aware what sort of equipment he is selling through their site, his current ad has not been removed yet ( for fish hold cooling equipment )He has sold several *freezer rooms* last year through that site and another since I bought mine.
Just to make everyone aware what sort of person he is and how he treats people , if he thinks I will just get fed up and drop it, he is very mistaken :mad:

Thanks guys, yes hopefully he will think again, but wouldn't hold my breath :(

Really can't understand why he is acting like this, not even as if we had an argument or fallen out at all ! He just seems to like turning his phone off , the longer he ignores me the worse it gets :mad:
I will keep on his case for as long as it takes anyway, so in the meantime stuck with a *freezer* I can't use .Can't go and spend money on it in the meantime incase I do get him to take it back and refund .

If he's advertising himself as a qualified refrigeration engineer and selling soddy work then Trading Standards will take him to the cleaners. If he doesn't replace the freezing gear with properly sourced and properly set up equipment then he shouldn't be trading at all. The least he should do is repay you ALL your money and remove the cabinet at his own expense. Small claims court has a limit in Scotland of 3000 ( http://www.adviceguide.org.uk/scotland/your_rights/legal_system_scotland/small_claims_in_the_sheriff_court_scotland.htm ).

Thanks for that Davie :)
I think he would be qualified, his van was well sign written anyway, but there again that doesn't mean anything!
The guy I got to inspect it has been in the trade over 40 years, and he was pretty shocked at the standard of work , he said it was a open and shut case, not fit for puropse, so plenty evidence for a strong case against him.
I think it end up in the small claims, not heard anything back from trading standards yet, but don't expect it to be a very speed process unfortunately :(

Wonder if anyone else has had any dealings with him uo here? said he had done jobs on boats in Peterhead,Fraserburgh and Macduff before .

we had dealings with mr moody here on tiree. he sold us a 20 by 7 by 7 freezer. he didnt even finish the job before he left. never fitted the lights and didnt have proper hinges with him . that was the least of our worries. it wasnt even a proper box,but slot together panels. (it was an outdoor type we ordered). same problem as your unit,overheating not keeping a good temperature and after 2 weeks it was kaput. mr moody was phoned and said he would come and fix it next week, of course he never appeared and that was the last we heard of him. he would never answer his phone after that. a month or two later and it blew into pieces during a january gale. the end!! if you catch up with this waster please kick him in the nuts from tiree

Geez! :mad: Sorry to here this, looks like I am not the only one then :(
B****** he is!!
Don't know how he can sleep at night .

I spoke to trading standards yesterday, they said I have a very good case if it goes to the small claims court. They advised I write to him and send it recorded deliverly, I suspect it will be a total waste of time, but they said it would show I had done everything to contact him and give me an even stronger case .
I have given him several options and two weeks to reply, if I hear nothing, it will go straight to court then.
Still keep ringing him everyday, still very good at turning his phone off :mad:

Thanks for posting Fishy balls, if you want his address, pm me :)

I spoke to on the fish quay at whitby and told him he not been in touch with kevin ( kevin asked me about him last year and i had not heard anything bad about him so said he was ok ) all he said was im fxxxxx sick of him ringing me up all the time and if im ever up his way he was going call in and smack him showed no sign of sorting kevins problem out
Told him about this forum and this thread said u need to get on it and give people answers looks like he hasnt and wont .:mad: :mad:

Davie Tait
27th February 2009, 21:24
OK Paul in that case we will list him as an unsuitable seller and will leave this permanently up in this forum so people will know not to trade with him. I will only remove this if he fixes all the problems our 2 members have had and does so promptly.

27th February 2009, 22:11
No more news so far Davie . I posted him a letter recorded delivery on Saturday, he should have got it on Monday, given him several options to settle things quickly ,I told him I would give him 2 weeks from receipt of the letter to get back to me, I will be amazed if he does...going by his attitude :mad: I also told him I would not phone him in the meantime :rolleyes:
I will get everything in place next week for the small claims as I'm sure that is the only it will go now, don't think it will be a quick process either unfortunately, so in the meantime still stuck with a useless box! :mad:
It will be 2 months on Tuesday since he knew it was turned off completely ...

Guys,
Surely you can all have a whipround....... enough to cover diesel to Whitby pay him a visit.... save this guy anymore grief he already has a freezer that is no use. March him to the bank and get him to withdraw the funds that legally are not his. They were gained through deceipt and lies and he should be made to pay for it. I am not the type to usually go down this road but this type of person really grips it for me. I am sure if you looked hard enough there would be someone in whitby that would do it for you. Good luck in your persuit of a refund

5th March 2009, 20:37
Thanks for the support , hopefully won't come to that , but feel free to give him a ring and ask what he is playing at ...

Well still not heard a thing from him, I will give it till Monday , that will be over 2 weeks since he recieved my recorded letter ,then I will have to start the small claims proceedings, wasting even more time on this crook :mad:

Got a reply back from the site he advertises on this week, they were glad to be made aware of him, although his current advert is still on, they will not be accepting anymore adverts from him in the future.
So at least he might find it a bit harder to sell his junk from now on .

Funny you should mention that Davie, a member from here was speaking to him about it a couple of weeks ago, and David suggested I write a letter to FN. Think it would just be water off a ducks back to Mr Moody to be honest, doesn't seem to care less unfortunately.

I'll see how this small claims court goes first :)

7th March 2009, 23:31
After making my first reply on this forum i decided to contact a couple of friends here on the west coast who had also had work done by mr moody. and suprise suprise it isnt good. My friend in mallaig told me of his troubles, wasnt too happy with his finished job and true to course after a couple of weeks it wasnt keeping temperature then the compressor melted due to overheating. mr moody was contacted and said he would send up a new one. of course it never arrived and after the initial response he never answered his phone again. ? mallaig man had to replace all the faulty parts himself. We were intrigued to here mr moody is keen to dish out some physical violence to his disgruntled customers and would like to sincerely offer him a trip to tiree,(we will even pay his ferry fare if he is struggling?) and upon his arrival we (4 of us had a share in the freezer) shall form an orderly que for him to try his luck !! As for the idea of chipping in for a car and petrol to go and see him face to face, i am now pondering the idea of a coach ?? Now to all the people out there reading this, is there anyone out there who has a complimentary word to say about mr moody ?? im still waiting to here from another customer of mr moodys. shall keep you all informed

fastcat
8th March 2009, 21:30
Thanks for posting this, more happy customers :mad:
The guy that I got to look at mine said it was a well know trick if the compressor wasn't up to the job/broken, overfill it with gas (mine even had the wrong type of gas in it aswell) and it would work for a couple of weeks at most , seems to be Mr Moodys speciality .

Well have phoned him a *few* times this week.....got him to pick up yesterday when I withheld my number ! as soon as I spoke and he heard it was me he put the phone down :rolleyes: first time he has actually picked it up since january! phone him straight back and surprise, surprise no answer and phone was turned off ! Then sent him a text telling him the court papers be posted on Tuesday, and it was not a threat but a promise !

Never deal with an idiot like this in my life, couldn't make it up!

Expect the court action will take a bit of time, but I will keep you all updated how it is going .

Davie Tait
8th March 2009, 21:38
Well this will stay on the site until he repays you for the shoddy work he's done , if he doesn't and it has to go to court then we keep this on the site permanently. He cannot complain about this thread , if he did his work properly then we wouldn't be complaining would we.

Can I also remind everyone that NO threats of physical violence will be allowed. Lets keep this strictly to the facts in hand and if he wants to threaten people that is his problem not ours. I would strongly advise anyone who has anything of his installed either on a boat or ashore to get it independently checked by a qualified refrigeration engineer and if you find the installation is wrong in anyway ( wrong gas , wrong type of compressor , etc ) please post it here so we can make sure that this guy has to repair/replace the effected equipment.

Is there any room on the bus with you lads.

Same problems I had with a freezer bought from Jim Moodie 3-4 year ago, it is used as a store now only, it only ran properly for a month, still does not work...it was a piece of s**t, he won't answer his phone or emails, I thought it was just us that got unlucky but there you go, being a reasonable guy I even offered him the chance to to part exchange it for us just to get us up and running but no luck...distance was always the excuse....we are in Caithness in the very North of Scotland.

Then on top of that he introduced us to John Thomson of Amble Kippers who we shipped, lobster, crab and winkles to and he bounced a cheque on us then a few weeks later, so all in all Jim Moddie has cost us nearly 5k (3k Moodie and 2k Thomson) since I first spoke to him on the phone, gave up on Moodie and Thomson is as slippery as an eel so watch him too but still persuing that one.

Good luck with your claim and let us know how it goes, we could all follow suit if your successful and any info on Thomson greatly recieved.

Sorry to hear this, yet another happy customer :mad:

What a con man he is :mad: seems to be a common theme, we are all quite far away from him, and have been sold useless compressors.
When I first phoned him that was the first thing I ask if the distance was a problem, he said no, not at all, now we know why...

I've given him more than enough chances to compromise and settle things, all I have had is a deafening silence.

Got the small claims court forms now, will post them as soon as I can.

Sorry Peter haven't heard of the guy from Amble, but I know the feeling.......( another story :( ) good luck with him.

Best thing you could do with them Watchman, save anyone else any grief !:)

The distance he was away was a concern to me before I purchased GDE, but he assured me he did 'a lot of work up north' and was often up this way, so if I ever had any probs it wouldn't be a problem.....now know why he likes to sell his stuff so far away from his own doorstep :mad:

An independant report on the *chiller* room and his installation is now in the hands of trading standards, shouldn't be long now before he is due in court. Hopefully put an end to his shoddy work once and for all .

19th June 2009, 20:19
Well, was going to post a update today anyway and just been told Mr Moody has another ad in Fishing news this week! :mad: Just seen his ad, even offering finance aswell , he had that in his previous ad in FN and trading standards were very interested in that ....apparently you have to have a licence of some sort to offer finance , surprise, surprise he does not ...:rolleyes:

Trading standards are still on his case but unfortunately Mr Moody is proving rather elusive to track down....seems to think by ignoring registered letters and cards through his door people will simply give up and go away....only has the opposite effect ;)

The *freezer* should finally be up and running next week ( only 6 months now..) ... been one disaster after another, the guy that was suppose to be fixing it ended up going bust before he had done the job ! so had to find another company to look at it.Guy came down on tuesday, said in 45 years in the trade it was the worst *instalation* he had ever seen, said it was laughable , total junk that would never work. The air con unit that Moody had bodged wasn't even suitable as a chiller let alone a freezer , the expansion tank that he screwed on to the compressor unit when he was here was even on the wrong way to work ! was suppose to be vertical, he had it horizontal ! Guy couldn't believe a qualified engineer could have done such a job ,I seriously doubt he has any qualifications !

The repairs are going to cost me one and a half times what I paid for it ! :mad:

Anyone thinking of replying to his ad in FN , stay well clear ! :mad:

Nice installation of pipework....dripping water all over door frame so it froze and down into the electics ...

2nd September 2009, 20:40
Thanks very much Gavin :)

Yes, I 'm very pleased with the new work and instalation, the engineer was a perfectionist , it runs pefect and holds -20 no problem.
He has worked his entire life in the trade and had never seen an instalation like Mr Moody's before , he was pretty speachless .....

I post back up how the court action goes, been a bit too busy to pursue it lately, but hopefull get more time in the coming months .

Well...I received a very interesting phone message from Mr Moody last night ......
First time he has been in touch in over 10 months!!

A message was left on my answer phone from him.....apparently he is ''going to be catching up me soon'' :rolleyes:
I can only assume he has received the court papers and thought a threatening phone call would put me off ...tried phoning him back several times again, and surprisingly no reply.
I have made a copy of the call and will keep it as evidence ....:rolleyes:

24th May 2010, 21:38
Well it's been quite a while since I posted up on this... for obvious reasons I couldn't say too much when things were still ongoing .

It has taken a lot longer than expected, entirely due to Mr Moody's tatics of ignoring everything that was sent to him and everyone that went to him :mad: He only has one response - ignore it :mad:

Well I eventually took him to the small claims court and won my case in February :)
He was given a CCJ and ordered to pay me the full amount of my claim and all cost ( which have taken the claim up considerably)
The next step was to get a warrant of execution to get baliffs to visit him and recover the debt .
It has now become apparent Mr Moody is well used to this and seems to think he knows how to work the system.....
The baliffs informed me they had been chasing him all over Whitby and beyond for the last 5 years!! :mad: It seems he has quite a track record and is very well known to them (does not surprise me at all now )
The baliffs said he was the most obnoxious and slipperly customer you could ever meet......
He is currently still trying to pretend he doesn't live at his current address , but the baliffs won't give up that easy , nor will I .

Keep running Mr Moody.....soon you will fall flat on your face .

Davie Tait
24th May 2010, 21:44
Good news on getting the court order and CCJ , lets hope the baliffs get the money you're owed sooner rather than later.

I AM NEW TO THIS FORUM, BUT JIM MOODY KEEPS RAISING HIS HEAD. MY COMPANY HAS SUPPLIED HIM WITH NEW & REBUILT BOCK COMPRESSORS TO THE VALUE OF ABOUT 4,500.00 ! YET HE WILL NOT PAY. THE COURT HAS SENT PAPERS BUT THEY ARE RETURNED NO LONGER AT THIS ADDRESS.
YET I SEE HE HAS PULLED THIS ONE BEFORE. SPEAKING TO HIM, I FEEL HE IS NO REFRIGERATION ENGINEER BUT A GREASE MONKEY. HAVING NOW SEEN HE HAS SCREWED A LOT OF DECENT PEOPLE OF WELL EARNED MONEY, I WILL NOW RENEW MY EFFORTS TO RECOVER MY MONEY.:mad:

Sorry to hear of yet someone else owed money by this waster :mad:

Having no luck myself with the court baliffs, I have now payed to re issue the warrant twice and got the same result, ''no longer at this address'' , it seems the baliffs only visit a couple of times and if they can't make contact, they issue a final return, if I want them to try again I have to pay another fee!

Currently looking into private debt collectors, they will not give up so easy...nearly 2 years of hassle with this robber now , still determined to get my money out of him!

Tony, I got your email and will reply with all the current info I have for him .

I had a dispute with a trader in england and took him to the small claims court,its harder to do it across border but i eventualy got him to court.The judge found in my favour but i was told that no expenses would be awarded(this is quite normal for small claims)but i would get my money back. The guy simply would not pay and in the end British justice as is often the case favoured the crook.
The court advised me to start proceedings again but it was getting to expensive to make it worth doing.
Ihope you have better luck but small claims courts dont seem to have much power and i certainly feel let down.

I would say its about time someone hired a private "debt collector" to deal with this character, seems the legal system is a joke!
Hope you fellas get some joy in the end, my blood was boiling just reading about him.

Unfortunately it seems this waster is still at it :mad: It seems he has been ripping people off on ebay now! I was recently contacted by someone who had purchased a cold room off him and received his usual treatment..ended up also having to take him to the small claims court and winning the case as I did, but was also unable to issue the warrant due to Moody doing his usual disappearing act! How many people has he ripped off now! :mad:

Anyone looking for a freezer/cold room via ebay beware of the user ''ChillerJim'' and stay well clear!!

He currently has 2 cold rooms advertised- www.ebay.co.uk/itm/COLDROOM-2-2M-X-2-2M-2-1M-HIGH-FULLY-INSTALLED-/251196041984?pt=UK_BOI_Restaurant_RL&hash=item3a7c736b00 (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/COLDROOM-2-2M-X-2-2M-2-1M-HIGH-FULLY-INSTALLED-/251196041984?pt=UK_BOI_Restaurant_RL&hash=item3a7c736b00)

Avoid!!!
