They probably have something to cover there arse.

But surely if payments been made and accepted then the deal is done? Keep whatever proof you have and contact the relevant authorities.

No they dont. Its an offer to treat , not an offer to buy.

They can legally refuse to carry out the transaction as the offer hasnt been completed yet.

As for the case of the chap above , I am not sure. However I suspect the magic of E&OE will apply

Hi,
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but contrary to popular belief they don't have to sell it to you.
And you can legally take payment as part of an acceptance of contract.

If you fancy having a read:

Under the E-commerce regulations it is entirely possible to sell on-line and take payment by credit card without actually concluding the contract on-line. The important factor is to make it clear that by placing an order the customer is making an offer on the site and that the contract will be formed only if the customer's order is accepted by the seller. It must be clear that taking payment from the customer's credit card does not indicate acceptance. For more information on the offer / acceptance structure, see our guide on On-line Contract Formation.

Hope this helps.
They do have to refund you card, but they don't have to sell it to you.
