Hello, has any further action actually been taken, or was this just something sent in error that was not followed up?
I imagine it was sent to me in error
but that is not acceptable right?
I was born here, so I should not be getting letters like that
The letter stressed and freaked me out
So I take it I don't have a stand from a legal point of view?
I agree it is not ideal to receive such letters but mistakes do happen and it does not mean that you are automatically able to take legal action and receive anything in return. In this case, you have not suffered any losses as a result, no further action was taken and this is obviously something that was sent in error. This is not defamation as it was not made sufficiently public and also the law will not compensate you for the shock or distress of reading the contents of the letter. You can write back to the company that sent this and correct their claims, asking you not to contact you again, but that is all you can do at present. If the letters continue then it may eventually amount to harassment but it is too early to treat it as such at present.
Ok, thank you for this
