Hello, I’m Ben. It’s my pleasure to assist you today. I may also ask for some preliminary information to help me determine the legal position.

Thank you. As they are based abroad they have no automatic jurisdiction to pursue you in this country. They would have to make a claim in their local courts (where you will not have to answer as you have no interests or assets in that country). They can however try and transfer that judgment from the foreign court to the UK courts and then try and enforce it over here. However, that is not an easy process and not that cheap either. In my experience, such companies would make threats and demands, hoping that you just pay up, but would rarely go as far as claiming in court and then also transferring the judgment across jurisdictions. If it was me, I would ignore them, but I cannot tell you which option to choose – as long as you are aware of what could happen, that will hopefully help you in making a decision for yourself.
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
You are most welcome and all the best
