JD 1992 :


Hello and thank you for contacting Just Answer. I am an expert here and I look forward to assisting you today. If at any point any of my answers aren’t clear please don’t hesitate to ask for clarification.


JD 1992 :

It is what is known as a "conditional threat". If you do this then I'll do that.

Customer:

ok

JD 1992 :

However, if you are asking if it is illegal or actionable it is not.

Customer:

That's what I was asking. So, even though the PM considered it a threst, thy can't take legal action right ?

JD 1992 :

No, it is not an actionable threat.

JD 1992 :

You can threaten to exercise your rights as a citizen but in this case it is a conditional threat anyway which doesn't count.

Customer:

My thoughts exactly.

Customer:

Thank you

JD 1992 :

Anything else I can assist with?

JD 1992 :

You're very welcome.

Customer:

No. The PM sent my complaint to the Postal Inspectors (postal police) who are real dick heads.

Customer:

She said they'd contact me.

JD 1992 :

There is nothing there. They can call you but nothing you said is illegal.

Customer:

Again, thanks.

JD 1992 :

You're welcome.

JD 1992 :

Please don't forget to leave a Positive Rating so I get credit for my work and I do wish you the best on this.
