Customer Question

I asked for a revised statement but they have not responded just sent the summons!

Have you paid the account apart from £106?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

It really comes down to whether you want to spend a day in court for the
sake of £100 whether that time is more valuable to you.

Remember that this is small claims that you will not get your costs back
even if you win although sometimes the judge will allow some out-of-pocket
expenses.
