tdgeek: Whats the legality of deciding not to honour the cards? If I walked into the store and told the staff that I am taking this printer and not paying for it, what would happen? If I gave them cash so as to have the gift card holder get the printer next week, then thats ok to say no, sorry?
Even worse for deposits on a lay-by.
Now, if they were insolvent, thats ok, but they aren't as NZ is trading and earning a profit.
So being under administration means the company is simply being looked after by a qualified manager.
It's tbe same legal entity... Dse limited or whatever.
So I was thinking if you walked in and took a printer then offered the voucher and walked out, its not stealing. They cant call the police because you technically paid for it and its not a criminal issue, but a civil one, meaning dse needs to take you to court which they wouldnt do over a $100 printer. Police cant do anything in that situation.
