Re: Legal Action for overpayment

View Post
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.

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.
Counterclaim what? No official claims have been filed, so he would be filing his own claim, not a counterclaim. It would be a so-called negative declaratory claim and given that they have threatened legal action, it would likely not be accepted by Swiss courts.

Yes, it is expensive. Why would he want to do anything? If they file (a civil claim), they have to prove their claims. Why would Bob want to take that on himself?
