What a [email protected] I was thinking about using them last year as they were just up the road from me. That Paul Bateman was on my facebook but I just checked there and he's taken me off. He's up to something by the looks of it. There's too many of these cowboys floating about. I've dealt with one cowboy conversion company already In County Durham. Hope the lad get it sorted.
who in co. Durham?
need to know who to stay away from

I still dont understand why people pay up front in cash for some work promised. Always best to pay with credit card after the work is done. if he still insists on payment, give him a bank guarantee and he will not be able to access the money before you tell the bank that all is fine.

Having done something simular, I paid half up front with an agreement for rest on completion. You do the homework, you try and find references and the rest is on misguided faith. For me it was for an engine transplant and I was desperate to get my van back on the road which in all honesty probably made me rush the homework aspect....

How about the above for an interesting link. I found the pictures of our friend enjoying a day in Doncaster Courts bazar to say the least.

which reminds me I believe Bateman emanates from Doncaster and he is/was associated with companies in that area. has anyone searched for him there?

Well I'm baffled.

The above links originally led me to a picture of Bateman. I believe he is watching as much as we are watching because the picture has been removed

small firms keep costs down by dealing with bank tranfers to pay for parts not all people are fraudsters like bateman

He did live in Whitby but has disappeared.:(

My suggestion is people start looking for him in Doncaster as he has family ties there and I have seen photos of him in the area.

I have just heard from the police, Bateman has given them a sob story, poor lad not trying to rip anyone of at all!


This is obviously s the more people complain to the police the sooner he gets locked away. If you haven't reported this scumbag to the police or haven't heard from them drop me a PM and i will give you the police officers direct number.

Bateman is still living at 4 Saxon Road in whitby if you are also pursuing civil action get him at this address!

Another update.

I have been in touch with the police who, as you say, are checking his story out. They have all his bank details and are confirming income against outgoings. I'm told that if they can't find evidence of him "skimming" money and it just looks like bad financial management then they probably won't do anything.

Best advise is take out a civil action.
