Hi Jamie and thanks for your reply. The particulars as they appear on the claim form I've received are as follows;1. The Defendant was employed by the Claimant as a contractor having worked for Claimant's software 'VENDA' supplier. As the Defendant was an IT specialist he knew how VENDA worked and he used this knowledge to knowingly make orders with credit, reduce items before purchase and the items delivered to either his work's address (i,e VENDA HQ) or a house which the Claimant has ascertained is owned by the Defendant.I would like to defend these allegations and need to respond by the 26th Feb.

Ok. You simple reply with your version of events.

It is not a witness statement but you either admit or deny them.

It does not say what the claim is for against you.

Ok. I can reply with my version of events or with a acknowledgement of service which would give me more time to prepare my version of events?The claim appears to be for a total loss sum plus investigation fees.

Ok. So breach of contract?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Well there is no actual mutually signed contract of employment?
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
The claim form makes no mention of contract breach?

Ok. So is it just that which is being claimed as you copied and pasted?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
That's correct.

Ok. I would therefore just reply back saying

The claimant has failed to plead a legal claim. There is no cause of action and as such the defendant is unable to plead a defence.

Just put that, nothing else.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today, please?

If not, I would appreciate a 5-star rating for my answer. If you need anything further I am available for a follow up at no extra cost.
