This must have happened some time ago as the minimum amount for third party bankruptcies is now £5,000, but it is nevertheless unusual as it would have cost the creditor almost as much again to take you through the process.
However, if you have received the bankruptcy paperwork from the court and are in a position to settle, simply get in contact with the court and arrange payment, and the bankruptcy will be annulled. There might be penalty fees involved, but it’s worth paying them to get rid of this problem.
