Babz Media to get compulsory strike off by Companies House

One of eBay’s biggest former sellers, Babz Media, ceased trading in 2015. Now, according to a First Gazette notice, Companies House has given notice of a compulsory strike off.

Babz was a big seller on eBay and Amazon and as we said at the time: “One concern we have is how such a closure could affect buyers. eBay have commented on the case: “We are in close contact with the seller and will make sure that no eBay buyers are left out of pocket. Anyone who has made a purchase that hasn’t been delivered will receive a full refund.””

What is now clear, that was uncertain when we wrote that piece, is that Babz is that the situation is now permanent and not a temporary blip.

Some of you have expressed surprise that Tamebay hasn’t reported on this situation more fully. And many of you have also offered speculation, hearsay and rumour as to what has actually happened. There have been a great many stories.

Sadly we can’t report on unsubstantiated rumours (and trust me we got a lot of emails that began with “According to my sources…” but when we probed those sources, no firm evidence was available.) so we ask you to be mindful of what you say in comments. Although, of course, we are always grateful for solid information that we can report.
