Alex Watts : So their fee should only be £297 is that right please?
Alex Watts : Ok. So they have sent you am invoice, they haven't deducted it from any award you have had?
No they have just sent me a 21 day notice of payment of outstanding bill which is the £691the last thing I did not comply and send them was a copy the final decision letter which I believed if they had been doing all the correspondence they would have received too. Which is why I called to ask for an invoice.
Alex Watts : Ok so payment is being sent to you direct from the bank, then they take their cut?
I believe so the cheque was requested in my name
Alex Watts : Ok.
Alex Watts : so you should take the cheque, pay to the company what you believe is the correct amount and ask them to prove otherwise.
Alex Watts : You hold the upper hand, they want the money from you.
Alex Watts : At the extreme if they issued a small claim they would have to prove to the judge all this sum was owing.
Alex Watts : We both know it can't be - they can't even do their own sums.
Alex Watts : Therefore you should pay what is actaully owed and not what they are claiming.
Alex Watts : Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Thank you I thought they might be bullying me . Do I write or call to stop the incoice explained thatI'm awaiting payment?
