Hello, this isCustomerand welcome to JustAnswer. I will be the lawyer working with you today and I will be happy to advise you to the extent possible on this platform. If your contract states that you were to pay a one off payment and you made that payment, please write to the person who is emailing you that you do not owe them any money as you complied with your obligation under the contract i.e. you made a one off payment and you require them to cease sending any further emails.

This usually helps.

If they come back to you with a valid reason under the contract that the payment is due feel free please to contact me and we will review it and let you know your options.

I hope this helps. Feel free to ask me any follow up questions. I am happy to help!

Hi, I have done this - he seems to come back on an annual basis with the same claims

Then unless he tells you that the payment he refers to is in addition to the one off payment and backs it up with the relevant contract clause I do believe you have nothing to worry about. You may want to respond to him and state that if he does not stop contacting you you may consider this as harassment.
