Thank you for your question. To Introduce myself I am a sydney based Solicitor and will do my best to provide you with relevant information to assist you.
It is possible and if their reputation has been damaged and they have suffered loss they can seek compensation from you.
If what you have said is true then you have a full defence.
Is what you said true or were you just angry and said things to make yourself feel better?
It's quite a long story but I bought a voucher for 8 hours of labour ( painting of two ceilings) but this person charged me for two people without alerting me. I was unaware that his presence along with another guy would result in extra charge. He also told me over the phone, before he arrived, that he was buying undercoat from Bunnings but has refused to provide any receipts..
The next day he came to my home, while I was at work, and removed my roof tiles, He phoned me and I immediately asked him to leave. His reaction was that he would leave the roof tiles off so that I would have to call a tiler. I called the police who got to him tell me where the tiles were so that my son (who had to leave work) could put them back. He now keeps sending invoices which I cannot pay since I did not authorise what he has documented.
just another question - how can he prove that it was me who wrote the comment?
well, I'm still not sure if he could have a case based on what I told you. In other words, would you be able to take me to court based on the evidence of what I've said - that is, a posted anonymous goggle comment? As you can understand, I'm quite frightened of this guy.
ok, just to clarify...please explain what is meant by, 'the court will make an order against me' . Now I am worried. Would you be confident you'd win in taking a case like this?
I hope that truth will triumph !! Thank you for your advice and wish me luck.
I hope this is of assistance. If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know before leaving any feedback.
If I have assisted please do not forget to leave me with positive feedback.
