I'm being sued for alienation of affection by the husband of a woman who I chatted with on line 2.5 years ago. I've never met the woman, it was simply an on line conversation. Frankly, I do not even even know her name. At no time did I ask her to leave her husband. It was flirtatious and fun, but that was the extent.
The letter from the husband's lawyer is a request to settle for $10K or they will have a summons issued and file a complaint.
Suggestions or thoughts would be appreciated.

Thank you for using JustAnswer.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation. To be clear, you're being sued (in that they've already filed a legal complaint with a court and are going to serve you with the complaint) or that this is a pre-suit letter?

Pre-Suit --- titled "For Settlement Purposes Only Inadmissable in court pursuant to rule 408". I received this on 9/28, I have until 10/7 to pay $10K or they will then file a complaint. Seems like extortion to me, but I'm not a lawyer.

I tried to accept your phone call request, but for some reason there was a payment failure.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
