Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. Who wrote the letter - you or the other person?
I have written the letter with the intention of dropping it off to her (without seeing her). I just want her to know that my memory has improved and that I know everything she did while pretending to be my friend. How did you manage to read the letter that quickly. Are you a speed reader?
Ha, haven't quite read it all yet, I just wanted to understand the situation before I dived in to read it. I presume you will just send it to her?
ok even without reading the whole letter I can tell you that this will not be defamation because to amount to defamation something has to be made sufficiently public. We are talking sending it as a mailshot, publishing it in a newspaper, uploading it to a website, etc. (don't worry about putting it here, we can remove it if necessary so it cannot be viewed by anyone). If you are only sending it to her then this is not defamation even if its contents are not something she agrees with.
If she disagrees with the contents then so be it - it is not defamaiton if this was just correspondence between you
It is unlikely you can be sued for this
Phew! Thanks a million Ben. You are a good egg (and a knowledgeable one too!). Toodle pip!
she may threaten every type of legal action under the Sun but it does not mean she can go ahead and sue you - the courts only allow certain claims that are relevant to the circumstances and defamation is not something that can be pursued here. Also good luck to her funding such a claim - we are looking at thousands to get anywhere near the Courts, it is a very complex and expensive area of law.
For Ben Jones.
Thank you very much for the advice given yesterday. I feel contented and satisfied that I am not breaking any law. Thank you again.
