Have you repaid him?
Well, surely there is? He has paid for a parcel and he hasn't got it? You are liable for the sum he paid.
Or did he not pay £2k?
Ok. What are the articles worth?
Well, that is something a court would.
You are liable for the value of these items. Come what may, they have been lost. You may well have a claim against Hermes. If it is just cuttings then I'm surprised you incurred the expense of a courier. In any event, the fact that you have a claim against Hermes is not his problem. His claim is against you.
It is not worth £2k though. Even for sentimental value.
In terms of harassment, obviously I haven't had vision of what he has been doing and the police may well give him a harassment warning but it is not harassment to contact you in pursuance of a legitimate claim.
It is possible he is doing that inappropriately. It depends. The fact that he says he has a claim against you is not harassment though.
Can I clarify anything for you?
