Please allow me several minutes to read your facts and type my response.

If you receive an email regarding a phone call for an extra price that comes directly from the website and not from me and I have no control over the sending of the email. I don't take part in the telephone program and only work through this format and under your facts this format should be sufficient.

There is no law stating that he can't say that however he subjects both himself and his company to potential damages in a lawsuit for slander.

As a general rule the law doesn't prevent people from making statements (correct or incorrect). It just provides for damages if you make an incorrect statement and the person sues you.
