You have a couple of options.
If you want them off your back, you can tell them that in youropinion, you are not liable for this so you will consider paying the money toget rid of them but you reserve the right to sue them in the Small Claims Courtto get the money back on the basis that you paid under duress/pressure/mistake.Ask them, bearing the above in mind, if they still think you are liable.
Or alternatively, you can tell them that you have been advisedthat you are not liable for any damage caused by a third party and that theyshould seek the monies from the third party (give the third party's address orlast known address) and that if they still feel that you are liable they shouldnot write to you again but they should immediately issue Small Claims Courtproceedings which you will defend.
