Simply Lunches — Non payment of buffet
I received a phone call from Jessie leal from simply lunches who wanted to book a buffet to be delivered to a hospital in London. He was very professional and said that he took bookings from hospitals, pharmacy, dental practices etc and was looking for caterers in the London area to provide these buffets. We took the booking and delivered the lunch, we then sent the invoice to simply lunches. I have later found out that many caterers have provided this service for simply lunches and none ever get paid for the job. I have contacted trading standards about this and am posting this in the hope that if you have been conned, to please also contact trading standards. The more people that come forward the better the claim the trading standards will have against them. I have done some research and simon granger is the owner and director of simply lunches. He has been a director of seven other companies all registered to the same address and all the businesses were dissolved. He is nothing but a con man. He is earning a good living from taking bookings and also payment via credit and debit cards for buffets, he then outsources the work to local catering companies with the
promise of more bookings but never pays for it! I have no doubt that I will never see the money for the buffet that I did the work for but Simon granger received the money for, but I just want to try and put a stop to his con so that he cannot continue to make a living on the back of someone else's work. If trading standards have enough complaints then they may be able to prosecute Simon granger for fraud. so if you have been caught like many others then get in touch with trading standards now as it is hard enough for small businesses to make a living as it is without ### like simply lunches conning people.
