Are you sure you want a phone call? You really don't need one.
It will increase costs.
I can call in about 20 mins if you would like but it does increase costs?
Ok, what is she alleging and to whom?
Yes, men need to avoid victims. They always turn on them. But to whom is she saying this?
to anybody else at all?
Thanks for the information
You do have the option to sue in defamation. This very definitely is defamation. The problem with that is that you have to prove that it was false as opposed to just an allegation that was disbelieved. That is hard to do as you will have the burden of proof. Also, this is a very expensive action and if the accuser has no money there is no recompense. You would still get an injunction though.
You could also sue in harassment if there is more than one allegation. There is a fairly settled law now that making false or trivial allegations can be harassment. That does still cost but it is much cheaper.
Or you could get a solicitor to write to her warning her of the laws of harassment and defamation and making clear she should desist. That would only cost about £100 plus VAT.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more information.
Tell him to avoid women with stories of their victimhood. If he wants to be a saviour then go and rescue a dog or something that won't make allegations of human trafficking when you won't give it a treat.
No problem and all the best.
