John Ewans is good at telling you what you want to hear but in reality has very limited capability in Mechanical Design and he knows that and just takes money and won’t refund it. We even gave him more time however he failed to produce a product anything like the agreed specification we had confirmed in writing. He is dishonest and sends forged videos making the work look more developed than it is and even encouraged us to commit fraud which we did not. We think he has very limited capital as he runs two companies (details below at Companies House) one which makes money and the other that loses a similar amount take care their overall financial status is very risky. He works out of a dirty office next to a car wash. We asked him for a refund after he sent a video clearly showing what he had made was nothing like what we agreed but he would not pay our money back. We are now having to take him to court this has gone on for over a year. He has offered all our money returned providing we pay him the last installment and do not sue him for loses. We have lost a lot more than money, months of delay and having to start again and once we go into production intend to sue him for the 8 months delay of lost production. Why would anyone still pay for an item both parties agree is rubbish and totally not fit for purpose, John Ewans thinks so. He is an old man set in his ways and cannot see when he is wrong. Stay away from John Ewans this guy is incapable and delusional even when he admits he is at fault he still wants paying. The two companies he runs finances are at https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/officers/8WpwZNeQlzjQz7yciNLz7AGnNlU/appointments between them only have £7511 credit which is less than he owes us. We gave him a chance to end this dispute but he would not so we want to warn others against trusting him. If we win the finances between his two companies will be at a loss on their last figures. We trusted John Ewans and it has cost us, he is dishonest and a close to bankrupt scammer!
