Thanks for your patience while I typed up my response!

Again, I'm sorry to hear this has been occurring.

Based on the information you shared it appears that you may have grounds for a defamation lawsuit against this individual, and perhaps a negligence lawsuit against Facebook.

To win win a defamation lawsuit, the plaintiff must prove that:

  1. the defendant made a false and defamatory statement concerning the plaintiff
  2. the defendant made an unprivileged publication to a third party
  3. the publisher acted at least negligently in publishing the communication
  4. the plaintiff suffered damages

To win a negligence lawsuit, the plaintiff must prove that:

  1. the defendant owed a legal duty to the plaintiff under the circumstances
  2. the defendant breached that legal duty by acting or failing to act in a certain way
  3. the defendant's actions (or inaction) caused the plaintiff's injury
  4. the plaintiff was harmed or injured as a result of the defendant's actions

If you would like to pursue the option of a potential lawsuit/ lawsuits then you should meet with a civil lawyer in your area.

You can contact the Oklahoma State Bar for a referral to a civil lawyer in your area.

The phone number is:

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions about this. Also, please take a moment to rate me using the stars at the top of the page, as it's the only way experts are compensated for our time on the site. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!

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.
