MY HUSBAND HAD A BUSINESS UNTIL RECENTLY WHEN RECESSION TOOK ITS TOLE. ONE SUPPLIER HAD GOODS TO COLLECT DUE TO GOODS BEING DEFECTIVE AND WHAT THEIR POLICY WAS THAT THEY MADE NEW REPLACEMENTS AND THEN INVOICE OUR ACCOUNT AND WHEN GOODS WERE CHANGED OVER THEY WOULD BE RETURNED TO COMPANY. HOWEVER, THIS SAID COMPANY HAS TAKEN MY HUSBAND TO COURT FOR 1374 PLUS EXPENSES. THE ORIGINAL CCJ CAME IN AND WE FILLED IN THE ADMISSIONS FORM AND ALSO STATED THAT GOODS WERE TO BE RETURNED BUT THE NEXT LETTER WE GOT WAS STATING THAT THEY WERE PROCEEDING WITH COURT ACTION. SHERRIFF OFFICERS HAVE ATTENDED THE PROPERTY WITH A CHARGE FOR PAYMENT OF MONEY. IS IT TOO LATE TO MAKE A PAYMENT OFFER OR WILL I NEED TO FIND THE FULL PAYMENT WITHN 14 DAYS.?
