Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Do you have the evidence that you were defrauded, I know he is trying to make claims, but what evidence do you have that proves he defrauded you?
Also, you can file another restraining order and have him served when he shows up in court tomorrow, just to let you know.
