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

No nothing the web site was only running for around 2 mouth and not fully finished thanks the pic that he is sueing me for is of a standard door with no pic of him or any of his compony details on it thanks

Ok. Then you dont need to worry. They are unlikely to take you to Court because of the cost to them as it cant be recovered.

It would be a small claim. If you didnt make any money from it and the website is down, then nothing is likely to happen.

The letter is just to scare you, I would just ignore it

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
