Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
You can simply end this issue by sending a letter to his attorney with a copy of the proof attached and tell the attorney that you never used the card and you are attaching proof and that continued making of defamatory per se statements against you would lead you to take civil action against your ex and you are demanding he cease and desist the comments immediately.If he continues, then you can file a separate suit against him for defamation for accusing you of theft and fraud.
Send this as a regular letter to his attorney with a copy of your proof attached. Then if the comments continue to third parties by your ex you can sue him for damages for defamation per se.
Thank you for your reply.
He is not obligated to provide proof unless he goes into court and there is a court action. That is why I told you to tell them his comments were defamation per se. He does not have to give you proof unless the matter goes to court, but he also cannot continue to make defamatory statements against you.
You need to at least send them a cease and desist letter telling them it is not true and attaching your proof to his attorney, this way if he keeps it up you have a basis to show he knew the statements were false and get a money judgment against him for defamation.
You do not have to interact with him at all. Send it to his attorney to put him on notice. AS far as Apple or Paypal, you need to change the passwords on those accounts so he cannot enter them.
I do not know how he is getting the info either, but that is why you need to send the letter to his attorney.

Unless you get your phone and computer checked to see if he installed some type of spy program on them, which would mean taking them to a local computer expert, I have no idea how else to protect yourself more than we discussed.
Thank you for your reply.He is saying you committed fraud, that is what he is telling you. It is you who is saying someone stole your identity. It is your word against his. He is doing this to accuse you of fraud and he is doing it to get you upset.
Thank you for your reply.Then he would have to turn the information over to the police if you report the identity theft to the police. He does not have to turn it over to you, but would have to turn it over if the police investigate and compel him to do so. I still have the feeling he is just doing this to upset you as part of his control over you because of the other things you have said above.
I made the assumption because of everything else you said about him above. However, the only way for you to know if he is lying or not is filing a complaint of identity theft with the police and have them investigate.
Thank you for your reply. I am sorry for the delay, I was traveling on a client matter and did not have internet access.
Please understand the experts are not employees of this site, they get no credit for spending several days with customers unless customers leave positive feedback. Thank you for understanding.
I told you above I thought he was making things up, but no matter what you need to file your police complaint, let them investigate. Then You need to send the letter to his attorney. Again, he nor his attorney owe you any duty to turn over any information to you if they choose not to do so, there is no law forcing them to do so as I said already above. If you personally want to fight them for the information, you have to sue your ex for defamation of character, as I also said above.
