I'll just update you on what has happened
So someone who promised me that execution would be fixed tomorrow reappraoched me via email stating a completely different stance and had blamed it upon the fact that he is currently on "vacation" which I find to be unacceptable and definitely not the case. I can definitely recall what was said in the telephone call he made to me, and it was an outright promise to fix the execution to reduce slippages in the transaction cost, he came back now claiming that he said that, he has not done so, and have said that you will get slippage no matter what trading my size, i replied aggressively rejecting his excuse as his promise is not in line with what was said in the further email. He reappeared once I lodged the complaint too. Also staffs of this company has called my business partner a Ponzi scheme, such a person is very high statured, is it a defamatory claim and should i inform my business partner to pursue it?
Let me know when you see it.
Yes I see.
Its a mater for you whether you pursue it or not.
If you think you have enough evidence and if it went to Court, you would need to show, on balance that your version was more likely than not.
I can't tell you what to do I am afraid, I can only give you the legal options
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Is it illegal for him to lie about the phone call?
Illegal - no
People lie all the time - otherwise there would never be a need to attend Court
Would it be regulatory misconduct by the Financial Conduct Authority
