    Is there not another way to pay eg online via card ?
    Can people stop loaning money/being a guarator to family/friends, it rarely ends well and you lose out as your money is gone or you get shafted with being a guarantor.

    What do you think might happen if you don't pay it? How did they get your details and in what form did they communicate with you? Who is it that is requesting payment?

    Have you had a look at the relevant organisation's web site? There might be some information on there about being able to pay via PayPal or a similar scheme.
