Customer: replied 9 days ago.
can I please have a response

Thanks for the information

 

If the CCJ is not in your name then none of this has anything to do with you. They can't take any action against you so it is nothing to worry about.

 

Since they can't be writing to you, this is not harassment.

 

They can't act against you whatever claims they have against her.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more information.
