Are you in business?
What is the basis of the allegation they have made?
Are you able to fund an action?
Yes, so can you afford to pay for an action against?
Well, you could argue that this amounts to a defamation.
They will probably say that this is fair comments and then all they have to do is show that it is a reasonable comment on the circumstances. That might succeed. It is difficult to say really. Come what may, there was a mixup with funds.
However, you could argue that they have made it sound dishonourable and dishonest and that is not the case. But that will cost, if they contest it, in the region of £10-£20,000.
a better option would probably be to get a solicitor to write to this person warning them of the laws of defamation and asking them to remove the post and desist from making further comment. That is often very effective and not very expensive.
Can I clarify anything for you?
No problem and all the best.
