    Fake bag /court 15th Jan 20 at 10:42 AM
    Took a girl to court as I bought a fake bag, stupid I know now, I won and need to send her a letter asking for money back. Is there a draft letter, can I do it myself. Any help would be welcome.

    If you won a country court claim then she will automatically receive a letter from the court instructing her to pay in full within 28 days (I think) or have a CCJ registered with CRAs.

    If she doesn't pay up then you have enforcement options available via the court (the methods depend on whether you sued a business or an individual). This incurs additional upfront costs to you but everything is added to the claim, provided a recovery can be made.

    You have already sent her a letter asking for your money back. That go you nowhere.


    If you want to throw more money at it you can, via the court, ask for the assistance of the bailiffs.

    If you know she can't pay then what's the point in spending any more time and money pursuing her?

    You can send the boys round to lift the widescreen. You definitely don't want to send a letter telling them that though.

    Whether there is a widescreen worth lifting is another matter though.

    She has to have something in order for you to get anything back.

    Was this a one off or does she regularly sell similar items? In other words, when you say shes not working do you mean she's not employed or that she has no revenue stream?
    Money doesn't solve poverty.....it creates it.

    Not sure what you're expecting to do if she doesn't have the money? I mean, you could go through the motions of other debt recovery methods if you want to really make sure she can't repay you, but you'd probably be throwing good money after bad.
