Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
Yes but you need to state which ones are untrue please.
ok so if i state to you what is untrue can you put it legally
what it is about the page's content that is defamatory according to the laws in force in your country
If its the same woman .. she has reappeared.. Grumpy but Gorgeous in oldbury. Also unconfiirmed she may have been trading between February and May this year at Mosely.
Little Divas has become Grumpy But Gorgeous - don't use them!
we never became grumpy but gorgeous
and this search is coming up for my business which is not little divas and never has been
we are a limited company
trading under new name - not trading under new name - different enterty - there are persona pages on here for my personal facebook pages which i only found today.
i need someone to help find defermation stuff on here, i want my life back
all of these people are anonymous
In short its because they say its a scam? Do they name your Company though I can't see?
i think in the actual posts. to be honest i cant read the things on there they are so hurtful but i can get my partner to read through and look
if they dont name my company it wouldnt come up in the search results for my company
yes but they appear on googles search results when you type in grumpy but gorgeous or grumpy but gorgeous reviews
so i need to prove to google they are defamatory against my website and search results for my website and they will remove them from the actual search results
its a quicker way for me to get them removed from the internet, they will still exist
but will only be found directly through mse website
yes i understand this, my problem is not removing the comments, i would like to do this if i could but, i can get the entire page listing which appears in my companies search results removed
if i can show evidence to google that the page is defamatory, google will stop that page from showing up in my search results
so that my customers can stop seeing it
the thing is, i dont know who they are, so if i dont know who they are how can i say if that happened to them or not. we have never ever had that many no shows and always kept our customers informed
we had little divaz when i was 18 and took on too much than i could cope with and the wrong customers that did write to newspapers but never about not turning up. about having a rubbish party, but unfortunately they got what they paid for. i have taken the newspaper articles on the chin
i thought we could get past that
but then we opened a salon and we signed up to kgb deals and living social who sell voucher deals for companies
they failed to pay us for any of the vouchers sold and we had so many people coming with vouchers we decided to close the business as it wasnt making any money
we had no contact or payment details for these people
and the voucher companies wouldnt give them a refund
even after me telling them to do so
so the people who had purchased vouchers presumed i had taken their money and done a runner
when in actual fact it wasnt my fault nor their
they were pointing the finger at the wrong person and i ended up being branded a scam artist
also, i was only going to be receiving £8 of their voucher money with the voucher company getting the rest of the money they paid which was around £40
this company has always been here
its the oldest company of all
i have today managed to get that removed, i think it was the mumsnet link
they have removed that page for us today because of the personal posts on there
they were all my companies yes
but i have never committed fraud or scammed any one
my staff don't unintentionally ruin kids birthday parties
i mean intentionally
i have now incorporated my company as someone said this is the best way for people to see you are an actual company
so i did that
and i never ran off with peoples money
i have always been on the end of the telephone or email to resolve issues with everyone
i have never been arrested or interviewed by the police
i called trading standards myself for them to help me
which they did by going through everything in my business
including terms and conditions loads of things
HOW CAN I GET THESE FORUMS OFF THE INTERNET
No-one is saying you have committed fraud.
I dont think based on what you have said you can get Google to remove it
This is because there is truth to what has been said.
I think your only case is against the posters
This means you would need to go to Court and get an order that MSE give you the details of the posters.
do you know that another barrister on here has given a completely different answer?
Then once you have this then you can go after the individuals.
The problem is this - you have said that what they are saying is pretty much true
yes but the individuals have no money
On that basis Google wont remove it
so whats the point
i cant sue them
ok thank you.
But you can't sue Google - they are not responsible for this content.
any i dont want to
all i have to do, it prove to google that the content is not relevant to the search term grumpy but gorgeous
Not relevant - ok that is a different matter to Grumpy but gorgeous - lets just call it grmpy
You can say to Google that this is not even a review, it is a random posting and therefore has not been vetted, you have not given a right to reply and it is damaging to your business
It is just ramblings by some people who 'claim' to have been scammed.
You have not been subject to any legal proceedings or prosecution
Therefore it is unfair and damaging to your business
That is what you need to say
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
thank you very much!

is there a better way i could put this
sorry to be a pest
but as a solicitor is there a formal way in which this would be written
No - it is obvious from that. You could get a Solicitor to write a letter for you, but this would cost around £150.
Sadly we can not write letters for you or be instructed on your behalf.
