Good afternoon. I dealt with the original question for you. What is different about what you are asking now than what you are asking before?
Things have turned around a bit then. If he is now keeping you dangling on a string and sending you emails entitled fraud and suchlike, then he is harassing and you are entitled to protection from harassment under the Protection from Harassment Act which is a police matter. You could now go to the police over his actions!
If he was going to do anything, he would have done it by now. He is playing games with you. Don’t get stressed out. Even if he goes to the police, (and just because he says he has, don’t necessarily believe it) I would be surprised in the extreme if they took it any further. This is not something that I would be losing sleep over.
It depends on how hard you want to get back at him. You could always email him and say that as this is clearly not going to go anywhere, he’s not reported it to the police and hence, you are going to close the matter and put it behind you and appreciate that if he would not email you about it again. If he does, then you have a much better harassment complaint to make. He either has to reported to the police or shut up. He cannot go rumbling on for ever like a thunderstorm.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Please rate the service positive. It’s an important part of the process by which experts get paid.
We can still exchange emails.
There is no doubt in my mind that if he has emailed you three times about this over the weekend and still did nothing, he has no intention of doing anything except to harass you. I agree with you, he is just stringing you along and hence my suggestion that he is now harassing you. In my opinion, you need to tell him that either he has to go to the police draw a line under it or you will go to the police because it needs resolving and everyone needs to move on. At this stage, I think your best form of defence is going to be attack.
That is a completely separate issue and if he decides to become awkward over the certificate which he has no right to do, you would be faced with threatening the director for legal proceedings to make him give you the certificate.
We are now going round in circles again. I really don’t think that the teacher has any grounds to complain and if he does, I would be amazed if it went anywhere.
Why not just put it to him, directly, that it’s grossly unfair to keep hanging on, either go directly to the police now or draw a line under it. Tell him that you do not want any more emails from him. Leave it at that.
