My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. I will do my best to assist you with your question.

Good Afternoon,

If you are being blackmailed this is a criminal offence and you should be reporting it to the police.

The police will investigate and charge them if there is enough evidence to prosecute them.

If they are lying about the business and you and affecting your reputation and sales this is defamation and you can sue for compensation.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If there is nothing further

Thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.
