Hi amina
what u need to do is contact consumer direct by email or best phone them at the number above,Then write to lovin model stating "time and essence" letter given them 7days to reply saying your "dissatisfaction" and you would like a full refund. If they dont reply send a second letter stating(final letter before legal action) given them 7-14 days to reply stating you are talking them to court. Make all copies of the letters sent with dates. If all fails which iam sure it will your next step is claims court.
Template Letters can be found on their website:

please let consumer direct know,ASAP

Verbal things the rat kevin has said does not count keep all copies and contracts.Because u used direct debit u should get your money back..its a long wait..I scared now as iv just got a court order to get my money back..if there website is gone i wonder if they ve left warren st..PLZ....PLZ...check it..ASAP...let us know,otherwise we will NOT ever get our money back!!!

Hi Thanks fo rthe advice i will start to write them a letter stating what you have just said. I actually did email Consumer direct yesterday stating all this but they havent got back to me, so i'm gonna write to them as we speak stating whta they have done. the only problem is i only have my bank as proof of direct debit and i have destroyed all copies of contract that i had with them because i had given up trying to fight against them or even contacting them.

i think i might contact the press with this. See how they(lovin models) really like the exposure.

i may need to get details from you all about this and how they conned us. i think we should make a stand ASAP.
