Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello, thanks so much for requesting me. I'm sorry to hear about your situation. So, you can only perjure yourself if you lie under oath. If you agree that the things you said happen didn't happen in exchange for a refund, then you won't be doing anything illegal at all. In fact, many people agree to do all kinds of things in exchange for a settlement. If you were in court and you were asked to lie, that'd be an entirely different story.
My recommendation for you would be to weigh the money they're offering against your conscience. If you feel like it's worth it to you to remove the negative comment, then I'd go ahead and take the deal. It may be a good deal considering all you have to do is just push them out of your mind forever. The downside is that you'll be putting a price on your conscience for this. For some things, it may be worth it. For this, it may be more worth it to just take the money and never deal with them again.
