My email to Mobile Phone Xchange:
(Mon 18/01/2010 20:09)

Hi,

After waiting two weeks I still have not received any payment from yourselves regarding my phone: Nokia N95.
Customer Reference Number: 974064

Please update me on how much longer I have to wait until I receive the payment of £87.

Regards,

Jason Kench

I will also state that I made the email High Importance (!) and also requested a delivery and read receipt and I never received any receipts although they replied to my email.

My response from Mobile Phone Xchange:

Dear customer

Your handset was accepted on the 17th payment is made three working days after the handset is accepted which dependingon your bank will then take up to three days to clear as available funds.

Kind regards

Just to update everyone:
I have now received payment for my Nokia N95.
25 Jan 10 – BANK GIRO CREDIT REF MOBILE PHONE XCHAN = £87.00

So from my personal experience I got paid what they stated they would pay me, so I am happy.

Note:
I put bubble wrap inside the envelope they sent me to make sure if was not damaged in transit. I also recorded a video of the camera working and being packaged up for evidence if needed.

I wish everyone else good luck with their service and if you have any comments/issues please post them down below.
