Re: Legal Action for overpayment

Thanks folks, that was fast.

Bob reckons the set-up was quasi-legal at best, there was definite tax avoidance going on (when isn't there), and the fact they kept changing their name and address seemed a bit dodgy.

There was certainly no overpayment as Bob kept detailed records, however he wouldn't put it past them to cook up some records to claim that contracts offered via email were never verified in writing etc etc or some other way of trying it on.

They accused him as they have Bob's current address in the UK, to which the original contracts were sent to, although not all the ammended ones. There is no power of attourney, at least not yet.

The ignore and counterclaim possibilities sound intriguing to Bob. Can he inquire as to what level of expertise and experience posters have here? Also, with the counterclaim, how much is this likely to cost? He's assuming Switzerland is an expensive place to go to court.

Again, many thanks from Bob and I
