 EBay doesn't allow drop shipping so they are clearly breaking eBays terms of service and potentially getting people into trouble with eBay! It's also in breach of people to resell there eBay account so again sterling businesses are misleading customers which i am sure trading standards will be pleased about. Claims to have many years experience when the company is less then a year old. Called earlier and given me a totally different name to companies house. Name is Nathan coombe. Had many companies over the years closed down and opened up again in a new name once the damage has been done. Be careful when read reviews! Please do your research!

Danny Butlor - Fraud Charges on eBay!
Customers sold paper instead of PlayStations in Ripon fraudsters' £15, 000 Ebay scam

LINK: https://www.harrogateadvertiser.co.uk/news/crime/customers-sold-paper-instead-of-playstations-in-ripon-fraudsters-15-000-ebay-scam-1-7992133/amp

Duped customers caught up in a massive E-Bay scam were sent parcels with bits of papers and cardboard inside - instead of the X-Box and PlayStation consoles they were expecting.
The bidders had been conned by a £15, 000 scam which began in a layby in Ripon and made its way to the victims’ E-Bay accounts via Hong Kong.
A flurry of complaints led police to Ripon men Jamie Orchard, 29, and Daniel Butler, 32, but the link to the Far East remains unsolved.

Following their arrest in March, Orchard, the chief instigator, was charged with fraud and transferring criminal cash. Butler was accused of money-laundering. They admitted the charges and appeared for sentence at York Crown Court on Friday.
Prosecutor Dan Cordey said the plot began in August 2014, when Orchard legitimately bought E-Bay and PayPal accounts from a young woman after arranging to meet her in a layby, where she gave him her password and user name.

Barrister Taryn Turner, for Orchard, claimed the cable worker had only made about £2, 600 after being “suckered” by crooks in Hong Kong.
Jeremy Hill-Baker, for Butler, said his client had used his expertise to advise Orchard about the legality of buying E-Bay accounts.
Recorder Mr Stubbs QC gave Orchard a six-month suspended jail sentence with 150 hours’ unpaid work and £500 costs.

Butler, of The Shepherdies, North Stainley, was given a 12-month community order with 120 hours’ unpaid work because he had played a lesser role.

Nathan outside police station smiling collecting computers because wasn't enough proof to press charges.

Nathan two latest court cases he managed to get away again because he just closed his company down just in time.. He knows the law around opening and closing companies down! Limited Liability when buying from a LTD company and he knows that well.

He has been Prison himself for Class A drugs! If you ask your solicitor to get a criminal record check you will see this.. The time is never spent because he had over 3 years.

#2 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Our genuinely posted online reviews are from actual customers and no one else

AUTHOR: Nathan - (United States)

 I am the owner and we are Perfectly safe and anyone wanting references just ask. Lots of false negative reviews left against us in the last 8 months or so and none of them from anyone ever having bought from us but we are always happy to substantiate anything we offer. Feel free to ring and speak with me directly if you have a business query. Sites like this dont generally help and anyone can leave fake reviews in minutes and they then charge to have reviews removed. But there you go. A quick phone call can alleviate any concerns or a meet in person. We do have reviews that been left genuinely by customers and as you can imagine these are very hard to come by as not everybody wants to stick themselves out there everytime they deal with a business as of course there is a lot of jealousy and the online environment and by detailing the name of the company they own all the website they bought it could encourage hatred towards them by the competition but, there are a few clients that we have that are quite happy to be references and provide this information and these can be provided to anybody if needs be.

Another fake review buy a protagonist and trying to get a client to take us to court unsuccessfully

AUTHOR: Nathan - (United Kingdom)

  First off, we are a very safe company to deal with and anybody wanting references all quick conversation on the phone will be able to find this out no problem at all. We don't give people a 40 page contract we actually provide a three page contract which is very simple and written in non legal speak and very much in layman's terms because most of the people that we deal with have never run an online business before and so it wouldn't be helpful to both of them down at the first instance with lots of legal jargon. There are two court cases that were ever brought against us and in both cases they were precipitated by the same person contacting our customers and trying to poison them against us whilst at the same time kindly offering to do the court paperwork for them in fact this time of activity has been going on for about the last eight months right up until the last client contacted us and told us they had an email from this person back on the 24th of March 2018. We won both court cases with no further action and that in itself speaks volumes. furthermore the supplies details are all genuine as an actual fact I have a background in business to business data research so this was relatively easy to research and create of my own accord. My name is my name and I've no intention of changing it any time soon as I've had it for the last 40 years and I'm perfectly happy with it. Anybody else with any queries obviously pick up the phone and just ask.

No police or cid action ever and we dont have offices as we are online based.

A quick phone call can alleviate any concerns or a meet in person. We have never had police investigations into our company and absolutely never had CID investigations and also our business that is based primarily from a home address because we are online Run. The original poster is welcome to provide evidential proof that any of that claim actually happened of course. And also eBay absolutely does allow drop shipping and there is nothing in the contract or the sign up that States otherwise.

Say good bye to my 5000 Investment!

AUTHOR: JanetHamlet - (United Kingdom)

This guy has been scamming people for years at lease 50 people online has suffered by this company! Please view screen shot of this contract nathan coombe from sterling businesses ltd sterlingbusinesses.com sent! The payment was meant to be for a fully setup business but all he got was a empty websites which you can see here: allunderoneroof.co.uk Traveled all the way down from scotland to torquay to meet him at his home address, since paying the money prommises and prommises, almost a year later - Nothing done! Empty website and nothing listed on eBay.co.uk

I filed a small claims court on him and he sent me a 40 page contract and a response.. Please view the attached photos here. This guy is pure evil, All planned and staged throughout the sales process! 

I purchased a business from Nathan Coombe Date: 31/07/2017
No: NC018032017-71

Under contract I was expecting a professionally designed PRO eBay store. The seller just setup a basic eBay shop without any design work and charged me £3800.00
This wasn't what was agreed at point of sale and isn't what is agreed in the terms and conditions.

After noticing that I have been scammed, I read the following contract again and reading up terms and conditions on certain websites and noticed I have been miss-sold.

Payment was for trusted suppliers - My thoughts are suppliers which he has used before when it fact anyone can view the suppliers on google.com for free. Its the same list of suppliers being sold on eBay £0.99

Please read through the sales agreement you will see its very different from what received:
# Not all the 3000 suppliers accept drop shipping and this is what was meant to be sold to me.
# The contract didn't mention anything about the rules of amazon when using drop ship suppliers. 
# I didn't get a pro shop on eBay - Nothing has been designed for me.
# Contract mentioned - comes with the layered support - Never had any support and wasn't offered any.
# The contract mentioned - The products on your website will be displayed in such a way that they look appealing - I have received nothing of a kind.
# The contract mentioned - No hidden charges whatsoever to pay for this package. - Then after paying wanted me to pay for the hosting and domain name. 
# The contract mentioned - Then we will set up the eBay custom pro-shop - This hasn't been done.
# The contract mentioned - and set up the Amazon account with you and give you all relevant login details - This hasn't been done, I had to do it.
# Had no help with dealing with suppliers as mentioned in the contract.
# From the advert to what has been sold to myself is misleading.
# The contract mentioned - teach you about social media marketing - Received nothing. No Aftercare and no help whatsoever.
# The contract mentions - manipulating listing on eBay - I have found out that this is breach of eBay terms and conditions.
# The business isn't free hold - Its always owned by eBay.com INC, 

Dear judge this whole contract is void and misleading, Breaking 3rd party laws, Leading me down the garden Path.

He is a Rip Off!

AUTHOR: - ()

Sterlingbusinesses.com - Sterling Businesses Ltd - Sterling Data - Owner and Director NATHAN ALAN COOMBE with many connections to affiliates of closed down companies scam reports!

The facebook.com page has over 3000 fake fans which can be bought on places like fiverr.com.
Proof ? Any page that has those amounts of fans will clearly have likes on the articles he is posting. The page has zero likes on the topics he has posted. This is a clear sign that the fans are fake.

If you use a website called – WAYBACKMACHINE – You will see he has just copied and pasted images from other competitor websites and uploaded onto this facebook.com page to try and make you think they are most established.
Can you trust a company who is trying to trick you into buying there services!

They are trading under a name which is VERY Similar to a different company which helps people with marketing. They are trying to make you think its the same company because the name is so similar. Please take a look here http://www.sterlingbusiness.co.uk

So when customers do a search online they think sterling businesses ltd is the same as the above website and think WOW ok lets invest! Don’t fool for this trick!

The director Nathan coombe calls himself a different name on the telephone and in the emails but when you have been hyped up and ready to pay, you pay the company name in the invoice and not really knowing the person you’ve paid. Not until you do your research again.
Connected to a what sounds like a conman called Jordan James Snell which has many scam reports on google.

List of reports found on the Internet
https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/list-of-fraud-ebay-accounts-sellers.874852/page-3
https://who-calledme.com/Number/07875226836

This guy is a Joke! His business model is a Joke! He even calls himself other names in all the emails because he doesn't want to be tracked!

If your that silly to invest into this company, before doing so you should invest in doing a criminal record check first! Has been in Prision for Class A Drugs!

He has stolen images from a couple competitor websites and pasted on his Facebook.com.

He has copied word by word details of online businesses which are for sale from professional brokers! Same sales pitch and even reviews from other companies.

Here is some of his closed down companies:

https://www.check-business.co.uk/business/10607734/psa-holdings-ltd
https://companycheck.co.uk/company/09557158/DNA-MUSCLE-LTD/companies-house-data

Now to even hide is name further into this scam he is trying to offer franchises so they do the dirty work!

Hes a scam because

He claims to have the experance to justify the £4000 fees he charges!
He copies data from legit companies and copies and pastes on his own website!
He has connected to other well know scammer on the Internet
He has closed down businesses as soon as people become aware!
He has zero experance on eBAY not the 21 years he mentions on his website!
All the facebook.com pages the likes have been loaded! Cheated the system
He calls himself a totally different name in emails and over the phone.
Very simalar name has some other legit company offering the same service which makes it hard for you to do your research.
His legal 3rd party business practices are not legal!
