Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with tihs.

Alex Watts :

No.

Alex Watts :

This is because you did not have the bill.

Alex Watts :

It should be in the right name and address

Alex Watts :

Otherwise how could you have paid it?

Alex Watts :

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Customer:

We paid the invoices under duress but now a claim for compensation and interest has been received even though we have pointed out that the wrong name and address are on the invoices.

Customer:

Does that make a difference?

Alex Watts :

You can ignore that and refuse to pay

Alex Watts :

They can try and take you to Court but they would have to show they sent correct bills

Alex Watts :

They can't

Customer:

Could you please complete the sentence 'they can't'

Alex Watts :

They can't as in do anything, does it make a difference.

Alex Watts :

So no, you don't have to be bullied

Customer:

Thank you for your help.
