I turned my former employer into the TX Dept. of Regulatory Licensing for contracting electrical work without employing a Master Electrician, they filed the complaint of credit card fraud with the criminal division of our local Sheriff's Dept., and named me specifically. I have no idea why they would say I had done this, they assumed I remembered the credit card information, which I had not.
I just got off the phone with the Texas Workforce Commission, my former employer's response, in writing, cited the fraudulent credit card charges and the allegation being made against me. I have requested the response under The Public Information Act, does this constitute defamation? By the way, the detective in charge of the case phoned me yesterday to let me know that his forensic check of my home computers turned up nothing that would indicate I was on any of the websites, as all of the alleged charges were made online.
