Hello my name is Alex and 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.
Have you reported this to the Police yet please?
Its not reported to the police. The women is American which makes it a little tricky, and we're here in the UK
I see. That really makes it hard
In reality you can not do anything about it, save for contact Facebook
This is because if she is in the USA then the UK Police will not be able to do anything.
They could contact their colleagues in the USA but given it is only FB abuse, they are not likely to act.
If it was a murder or some serious crime they are likely to take it further, but this is abuse.
I have her FB account details, and her friends FB account details, I have details of the comments as I was advised to keep as many copies as possible
All you can do in that case is write and contact FB.
Yes keep copies for everything and send to FB.
But in reality because she in the USA - there is very little you can do
I am sorry as I know this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I do have a duty to be honest
Even if shes emailing our business account to
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Try and complain to the Police, but I imagine they will say, she is in the USA we can't touch it
All you could possibly do is sue her in the USA, but then you need to know where she lives
So essentially we can't do anything to protect our family, friends and business from these attacks because she is based in the UK? Thats terrible. The behaviour is absolutely outrageous and has been persistent over years
I understand its limiting as she is in the UK but surely theres something
She is based in the UK?
All you can do is:
1) Complain to FB
2) Complain to the Police here, but dont be surprised if they do not do anything
3) Sue her in the USA
Those are the only options I am sorry
So how do we sue her in the US? This has to stop, we are at the end of our tether! Over 200 employees see the abuse she gives us!
You need to know where she lives and follow the Court procedure there, but as a UK lawyer, I am not an expert in that field.
Ok, so I get her address then contact a solicitor in the US?
Or I think they also have a small claims procedure depending on which state she lives in.
Does that help?
Sort of, I can't tell you the hurt she causes. Its like single white female. I've never experienced anything like this and had no idea how destroying and unhinged people can be
Thank you for your tim
Yes I can imagine it is very distressing.
