Report Filed: Ernest Wilson / Ernest Wilson’s & Co Ltd Unscrupulous business transfer agent exploiting small businesses Leeds West Yorkshire!!
Ernest Wilson is one of a number of business transfer agents who claim to be experts at selling businesses but often end up taking their customers to court for thousands of pounds in disputed fees for unsold businesses. Their agents routinely give misleading information that a business can be sold quickly, cheaply and easily. The advertising materials they use are cheap (but not for the customer!) and very poor quality. Ernest Wilson alone makes around 150 court claims a year against its customers. Other similar companies include Vendor Direct, Advent, Meridian, RTA, Turner Butler, Sovereign and Hilton Smythe.
