I cannot understand your note; please clarify.
My client asked 500 $ refund 2 months ago what I paid it.
Now she want more refund for the same reason
I have already paid once
Now she want to take me in court
Is she right?
She wrote me last time: Anyway, as agreed you will refund me $500. Upon receiving this payment we will let this matter go.
And I paid it
After 2 months she wants more money for the same reason
Okay, thank you. Yes, I agree with you, that it seems that she has entered into a binding agreement in relation to the $500 refund. She has clearly stated in writing that upon payment of the $500 she will "let the matter go". I certainly regard this as binding.
Based on what you have said, I would be writing to her along the following lines – "I have sought preliminary legal advice about your further demand, and that advice is that the matter was concluded by binding agreement when I provided the refund of $500. My advice is that the matter is now closed, and that if you commence proceedings they will be defended on this basis."
I think this probably answers your question, but please come back if you have any further query or require any clarification.
Thanks for that
Okay, best of luck. From what you have said I think this is pretty clear. I don't think she will do anything else.
