Customer Question

How can a person prove defamation of character, libel and or slander? I said something that know is true but did not name any names. I also posted a statement on FB but did not name any names. I guess it home and the people feel guilty. I also said I had pictures but I don't trying to get them to come forward and return my things. Can I be sued?
