Re: Legal Action for overpayment

They are claiming from him, you don't have to start a court process to make a claim. He has received a letter of demand from them, Bob should reciprocate.
I agree, hence the suggestion for a registered letter.

There exists no contract between Bob and the Payroll company. They have no claim.
According to the OP, there was a contract.

They have made odious accusations and are now exposed to claims for Crimen Injuria and possibly libel. Depending on Bob's standing in life, these could easily exceed the claim against him by a factor or two.

Bob should wait for legal proceedings and then see a Solicitor. Bob should also consider
Pre-emptive claims for CI etc, perhaps Bob should pay for am initial consultation with a legal firm to put his mind at rest.
Pre-emptive claims for what? Prevent them from filing a lawsuit - they have every right to. Prevent them from sending him more letters. Possible, but expensive. For any kind of civil claim based on an infringement of personality (as they call it here) he would have to prove that he has suffered some kind of harm, which, considering that he is back in London and has been fully paid, would be hard to prove to a Swiss judge. This is not the US. Any kind of legal proceedings, whether criminal or civil, that Bob initiates could prove to be very costly.

Bob has nothing to worry about.
Which is why he shouldn't do anything other than writing a clear letter back to them until actual legal proceedings have been initiated.
