Hi, thanks for the return visit
It seems reality is setting in. But it may not be close enough for a settlement for you. It will need to be a balance between what you think you owe, (if that is anythig) and what it will take to make the problem go away. Sometimes it is worth paying somethinmg to make the problem go away, but I suspect this offer is not at that point yet
The previous threats appear to have been bluffing if you havent heard, so perhaps the response should be more balnd. You could outline your own expenses, and why you think the previous bills were so excessive but indicate you would settle on a reasonable sum and invite het to respond with a lower and better offer
