Now ex-client

I have received a repayment notice from HMRC in the post today for a client.  Going onto their website, it appears that (ex)client has submitted his own return, and HMRC have kindly given him a refund.

The abbreviated figures show -

Turnover £1,487.00

various expenses creating loss of £

CIS tax deducted £2,440.00.

Firstly, am I missing something??  By my reckoning, the maximum CIS that could deducted is £297.40.

Secondly, how do I distance myself from the situation?  A disengagement letter will be in the post tonight.  What else should I do - write a letter to HMRC saying that I no longer act for said client?  I know from past experience that just deleting from the client list has no effect........

I do hope that he doesn't spend all the money at once ;-)

Thanks in advance for any wise words of wisdom.
