I was owed a refund for a damaged product I purchased from a girl I recently dated. She didn’t refund me after 10 days of returning the product. So I began to text her to ask for my money back. She then replied that if I continue to text her it is harassment. None of my messages were vulgar or threatening. After she told me to stop, I texted her a few more times still asking for my money back. I then received a call from a police detective saying that she reported me for harassment. He said that if I text her again I will be charged for criminal harassment and if I want to pursue the refund to do it in court. The amount is only $35 so going to court is not worth it. I agreed to stop texting. He also told me some of what she said about the incident and she greatly skewed our last interaction and painted a negative picture of me. I felt this by the way the detective was speaking to me. Now, I was able to explain some of my side of the story but the detective was more interested in reminding me to stop texting the girl. My questions are: am I now in the “police database” and as I am planning to apply for a job in law enforcement in the future, will this hurt my chances? Also, will I be able charge the girl with slander since she gave skewed account (not outright lied) of facts to the detective?
basically I bought a swimsuit calendar off the girl. I paid but did not look at it until i got home. X XXXX XXXXX. When I opened it it was creased and signed. I asked for neither.
the company stated they have no privy in the matter. the girl is responsible
she said to mail it back to see the crease (it was folded in half). and she would refund me. I did. She didnt refund me
thats when I started to text her
ok that I will do, now the other problem is that it will cost more to file a claim in small claim court than the total of what she owes "$35"
I believe I am out of luck on getting my money back
amherstburg police department in ontario. its near windsor
I certainly will do so.
He asked that question. I said we were never in a relationship. we just went on a few dates. Saw each other 4 times in 4 months. I live in Mississauga so its quite a drive
ok that is sem-good news i suppose
That I WILL do 100%
as far as what she said. she told the detective that I showed up at her door even though she told me not to come. I semi explained my side of the story. I said i wouldnt drive to windsor if i wasnt wanted. and we spent about 5 hours together that day. in my mind that is skewing the facts to paint a bad picture of me.
I see. That is unfortunate. So much for a moral victory
I certainly wont be contacting her now lol. Understood
that is relieving to hear. Thank you for the advice. You have helped me. Especially with the PIPEDA
do i have to contact the department directly and ask for the report. or go through the pipeda website
thats fine. Thank you again kindly sir.
ok so i rate you now and close the program?
first time user
fantastic sir thanks again
Hello again, I received a copy of the police report and I believe it to be entirely one sided. Strangely, the complaintent who I knew as Nadia is named Kady in the report. The first page has her statement which has 16 lines of text. About 13 of them are blacked out, S. 21(3)(a), 21(3)(b), 21(3)(g), under the freedom of info and protection of privacy act. The second page only includes the dective stating that he contacted me about ceasing contact, that I understood, and to pursue the matter in court if I choose to continue. None of the 10 minute phone call where I explained my side of events is included.
