Yes they have started court proceedings and appointed a solicitor. However, they haven't mentioned in their court claim that the invoice which was for £4,600 was issued to a limited company and not to me personally. They have just submitted a copy of the bounced cheque with the claim as their evidence.
It seems like they are willing to spend a lot of money on this. There is no contract for services between me and the claimant. I'm not sure how I should respond to the court claim.
Yes I believed that the cheque would clear.
Yes the claim just says that the cheque bounced. It does not give any details about the limited company and the invoice issued or the agreement/contract, etc.
They wanted the company invoice paid. I only had my personal cheque book on me so I wrote a personal cheque. That didn't mean that I was accepting personal liability. I was not receiving any services from them personally. The company was the customer.
Can you please quote a relevant case I can put in my defence?
