Ok - well £1000 is outrageous
The fact that you were alerted and then stopped is good.
Even if it went to call you wouldnt be required to pay ALL income, it would only be profit.
Income is never what would be awarded.
You should write and apologise but say you are not going to pay anything
If they take you to Court it would only ever be a small claim if you made less than £10,000
Therefore they could NOT seek legal costs as a small claim
But they can't claim income, only profit
But the fact you have stopped is to your credit
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Yes you should and make sure you send the payment 'in full and final settlement'.
Does that clarify?

The question does not close and you can come back to it at any time
Yes I do.
You should not accept, they are trying it on
Does that clarify the position?
If you reject they could offer a lower or issue proceedings.
You wont get a criminal conviction as this is a civil matter.
It would only be the County Court
