Hello my name is***** am a solicitor and I am happy to help you today.

What would you like to know about the situation please?

Hello please can we stick to this question ? Just responding now.

what is the claim in respect of? Do you otherwise agree the money is owed?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
an alleged electric bill, nodo not agree with the bill, never lived there

well that is your best defence.

The fact that the title MS has been used is not enough to make the claim unenforceable. If you can prove you have never lived at the address to which the bill is issued that will provide a full defence.

Is there anything further you would like to know about this please?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
