I can't see how to 'rate' the answer?
okay, I wanted to know what he can do? He can't get legal aid even though he is not working at the moment due to looking after his mum.
Are there any organisations that can help, citizens advice didn't know and it seems like there is no advice out there.
He didn't do anything wrong, we think this is just spite and revenge because the man's business was not going well and he wants someone to blame.
Can someone just employ a debt collector and demand money without any evidence?
Is he liable for the fact that the car didn't win at the race and broke down, ( it was a cross country very long race) ?
My friend has been a car engineer for 2- yrs with no prior problems and always satisfied customers and winning cars, e.g. recent car he worked on was ***** *****'s mini that is doing very well! SO bearing that in mind I believe him that he didn't do anything negligent. He is dyslexic so people take advantage and I think this is what is happening.
I have written letters back to them every time and sent a formal complaint to the MD of the debt company but they continue to ignore this and harras. The last letter say that he has 2 days to pay or he will go to court. PLease is there anything that he can do as he cannot afford any solicitor??
could he counterclaim from them for harrassment and the damage that they have done to his mental state and his health in general? I only ask this in case it is a means of defense, he just would like it to stop happening.
They have said that they are going to turn up at his home ( this is owned by his mum, he just lives there at the moment) would the police have to act if they did turn up there?
Lastly, is it very unwise to represent himself at court ? I have told him not to do this but he says that he just can't afford a lawyer.
Ok, that is reassuring to hear, thanks!
I just want to say though, it probably would be the opinion of a court that letters don't have the power to destroy peace of mind but in this case they would be wrong. He has become very ill..digestive issues through the stress of it, his hair has turned grey and mostly fallen out..he can't sleep etc. He' s been doing this 20 yrs and built up a good reputation which is now ruined because this man has been badmouthing him but he cannot prove that. It just seems extremely unfair on him.
I, however, feel better for getting some advice, many thanks. I will rate it now.
