The allAgents crowdfunding appeal for £50,000 has narrowly failed.
It fell short of its target by lunchtime yesterday – but was extended until one minute before midnight last night.
By the original closing time of 12.30pm yesterday, it had raised £44,130 from 189 supporters. By midnight, the amount had gone up to £45,380, from 197 supporters.
allAgents launched its appeal in a bid to raise money to meet any legal costs in its battle with Purplebricks.
Purplebricks had objected to a number of reviews on the site, saying they were either fake or could not be authenticated.
allAgents said that in view of legal threats, it had no choice but to pull not only Purplebricks’ reviews but its profile page.
The objective was to restore both the page and the reviews, with the £50,000 fighting fund should that have proved necessary.
allAgents has been invited to comment on the outcome.
