READY FLOWERS UNRAVELS - PARTNERED FLORISTS GET THEIR KARMA AND REVOLT:
Ready Flowers Limited of Hong Kong allegedly owe its numerous partnered florists hundreds of thousands of dollars, and refuse to refund consumers for non delivery and defective product, SEE PRODUCT REVIEW with over 650 complaints.
A florist who wishes to remain anonymous has told me that he received and performed consumer orders from Ready Flowers Hong Kong of monthly amounts approaching $8,000 which now totals $50,000 .
Ready Flowers stopped paying him in June 2015 and I asked him if he knew why.
He told me that Ready Flowers told him, “they were just a bit behind because they spent so much on Google advertising but they would catch up by November 2015”.
Then Noni Sue (a Hegarty relation) of Ready Flowers told him, “it was the people before who had made a bit of a mess and she was hired to set things in order and was going to have it all paid out very soon”.
From there he said, “every time we called an excuse was made about them not being in the office”.
He told me that, after a letter of demand for payment was sent, Ready Flowers offered to pay the outstanding amount off in weekly instalments. This worked for a couple of weeks then ceased.
The florist is still owed a massive amount of money.
Other florists tell similar stories, such as :
|•||having their online account blocked by Ready Flowers.|
|•||being told by Ready Flowers that the florist is not even on their system and that the florist doesn't exist.|
|•||Ready Flowers staff hanging up once the florist says, "I want to be paid".|
|•||"We received a measly $500!!! When my fiancé and I emailed him asking where the rest of our $22,000 was he said we should be greatful that we received anything and that it's better than nothing".|
|•||"I hate begging for something that belongs to me. These people belong in prison. How come with all of the unpaid bills to florists and the like, they're still in business?"|

|•||"I've been showed nothing but disrespect and excuses, I've told them to pay what is owed and all they want to do is play games....".|

I was told by Noni last month (last communication i have had) that they where trying to sell property to pay out all outstanding debts..a very big lie i would say.. I have sent letters of demand to all the Hegarty family members and i did recieve a reply from Deborah Hegarty saying they deny any liability for the debt and to contact the company responsible... what a joke".|
|•||"I have not received any amount yet since September 2015, and you are intentionally keep ignoring my continuous requests for payment".|
|•||"Yes the scum of the earth calling themselves Hegarty's/ Ready Flowers owe my company $7,313.00 . Their last payment was last December 2015. Hundreds of phone calls and emails haven't produced anything.".|

|•||"Peter called and said they'd paid August  . Which they have. His attitude was more to the fact that they'd sent me $xxxxxx in orders over the past 7 years and I think he was trying to make me feel like they had been a big provider to my business.... Don't try and make me feel guilty. You were the ones that started hiding from your responsibilities. Lose the attitude and humble yourself."|
|•||"you have made no effort to pay me and noni sue is purposly avoiding all emails and phone calls, i dont appreciate your customer service team laughing and hanging up in my face each time i call to chase payment, where is my money? You owe over 100 florists in australia and new zealand alone"|

|•||"I have made numerous attempts to contact Peter [Hegarty] with no success. I have also tried the Philippines number, also no response. Does anyone have new contact details?"|

|•||"Ready Flowers you haven't responded to our collection letters! The last time I spoke to your Noni Sue (that was last year) she told me that you're selling some assets to pay your creditors..... you need to sell your homes and your cars and your other assets cause you're nowhere near done. Most of us creditors are suffering because of your bad business decisions that are absolutely not our fault. So get paying cause there are a lot of cases piling against you. If the ACCCdont get you first"|
Debt collector has spoken to Thomas Hegarty and he advised that he has no intentions of paying.

FLORIST COMMENT IN REPLY : To all who are owed by Ready Flowers:
"This is a classic example of Peter Hegarty's epic arrogance. After writing to him to collect what my company is owed, and responding to one of the creditor's plan to work with Ready Flowers again (no way!), he responded with this email to me. Peter Hegarty, I'm just stating a known fact, that you owe my company $7313 since September/15. And that its time to pay! And if I say to anybody that they're crazy working with Ready Flowers ever again, I'm just stating a fact. Nobody in their right mind would be stupid enough to want to go through the pain, anxiety, problems all over again. In regards to me telling you why should I be a priority in the payment queue? You must be a joker. Had you paid me back in 2015, we would not have an issue right now. So will you stick to the issue and focus on your obligation to start paying, cause this debt is not going away, and the more you leave it, the more the authorities are digging into all your business affairs."
"When you owe money to a lot of people, show some humility. Do not go about threatening your creditors, like me, who have waited far too long and still not a payment in sight. For you to have the gall to threaten me just shows the kind of person you are. This is not gonna go unnoticed mind you. The authorities are watching every step you make. And the media is keeping a watchful eye. You still have the chance to correct your mistakes. Use this chance wisely."
FLORIST OPEN LETTER TO THE HEGARTY FAMILY 1 June 2016 from -
Flowers don't pay Local Florists
"You have done very little to pay your dues to date. Many local businesses are still left in the lurch by your refusal to pay what is owed. The accounts that were approaching 12 months old that you have paid are restricted to smaller insignificant ones generally not more than $2,000. Rounding errors on readyflowers balance sheet.
I highly suggest you stop your games and controlling emails Peter. Start paying those who are owed and suffering via providing your family with unarranged finance of which the bank would charge 14%.
For the sake of your family's reputation is it wise to risk it all for the sake of maybe $250k, or is it much more than that? I urge you Peter Ross Hegarty to continue to actively clear your family's outstanding creditors held within Readyflowers.
Do you really want a new generation of [Gordon] Cravens coming after your family/Readyflowers /Onsavvii...ones that have legitimate civil suits that would defeat you in court.
Two last thoughts to share, my Mother's shop was paid a couple weeks back. Yet im still here and still hold ties with media and the like because i see what you are doing to others and it makes me sick. And two, I would gladly add you to the group Peter Ross Hegarty (or your sons or Noni for that matter). You could defend your position here. With your help we could close the group down because once we are all paid, we can ALL get on with focusing on improving our businesses, no longer distracted with managing our bad debts."
