Hi,

Thank you for your question and welcome.

MY name is XXXXX XXXXX I will assist you. Unfortunately if you signed their terms and conditions you may be liable to pay them something but if they have not actually provided the full service then they should not be paid their fee.

I would suggest you write to the as follows:
1. Deny any money is owing;
2. Say as far as you are concerned any arrangement you had terminated when they stopped corresponding with you;
3. Say that they have not provided any actual service and any success in claiming a refund is solely a product of your own efforts.
4. Say any attempts to chase you for money will be deemed harassment under S.40 of the Administration of Justice Act 1970 and you reserve the right to report them to the police if they continue to harass you for money;
5. Say that you also reserve the right to report the matter to Trading Standards www.tradingstandards.gov.uk/‎

If they continue to demand money you can take a view that maybe you could pay a fraction of what they are asking in order to settle the matter, but I would not pay them anything unless they can provide some evidence that they took any action in relation to your claim.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards

AJ
