How many messages? About what?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I have received 2 registered letters, 2 phone calls and 2 answer phone messages.
I sent the last registered letter back unopened.
I was asked by my late mum to deal with her and my late brothers financial affairs etc. as I was the only one she could trust in the family.
They have sinister thoughts all the time about me, because I did everything for my mum and brother and they did absolutely nothing, but now they have both passed away they think there is alot of money they are entitled to.
I have sent them all the surplus funds from my brothers estate and now they are after any surplus funds from my mothers estate, which there are none.
I just want them to go away and to be out of me and my wifes life as it is seriously affecting our health.
Can you help us ?***** *****

Ok. So what is the correspondence about?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
They think there is a lot of surplus money from my mothers estate which they are entitled to, but there is no surplus money.
They are accusing me of keeping all the surplus monies and they want it, or they will send the police to my house to arrest me for dishonest dealings.
My mother has lived in a council house all her life, the last 35 years on her own after my dad died in 1980.
My wife and myself were constantly calling in to see her and doing the cleaning and shopping and if we had not done this she would have been in a Care Home 5 years earlier than she was.
They are jealous of me because I did everything for her and they did nothing, nobody in the family liked my sister and her husband because they had a bad attitude and wanted everything they could get for nothing.
Everything they are accusing me of is not true and I just want them to stop.
How can I stop them from harassing me ?***** *****
Expert:  Jo C. replied 10 months ago.
I’m really sorry but this isn’t harassment. I realise that it is contact that you would rather not have but it is a matter about which they are entitled to correspond. They may be wrong in their claim but that is a different matter and every claim involves one side that loses. You are not describing a disproportionate amount of contact or of an abusive or threatening kind or at anti social hours. This is reasonable and proportionate. They are making threats that are unlikely to come to anything as the police will not be interested but that doesn’t turn the pursuit of a legitimate claim into harassment. I’m very sorry but their claim is one that will have to be dealt with if they decide to pursue it. Can I clarify anything for you? Jo
