I can do this online and you can seek a refund from customer services.
But what would you like to know ?
Yes, i've read your post.
What would you like to know about this?
Ok, what specifically is she doing?
Harassment isdefined as a course of action (more than once) which is intended to harass,does harass, is reckless as to whether it harasses, or if the average bystanderwould look at the conduct and think that it was indeed harassment.
Harassment is both acivil matter and a criminal matter.
If you are beingharassed. Go to the police and ask themto warn the ex-under the Protection from Harassment Act. Some police forces take that very seriouslyand others not so and therefore, you may need to speak to a senior officer orput a complaint in writing to the Chief Constable.
You can of coursealso apply to the civil court for an injunction to prevent her talking aboutyou or talking to you or doing anything else which is doing to harass you.
You may find that astrongly worded letter from a solicitor threatening a court application and anapplication for costs, may focus the mind without actually the need to get tocourt.
Check your houseinsurance to see if you have legal expenses cover that would pay for the legalcost of taking this to court.
It’s notdifficult to find out where someone lives.
You canalways use a tracing agent such as this http://www.ccsformations.co.uk/Tracing-25-c.html who will dono find no fee for solicitors for GBP50 plus VAT although if you are a privateindividual they want payment upfront.
I knowsolicitors who have used the firm on numerous occasions and found the service excellent.
I’m afraid that we cannot takeinstructions from you. You will bebetter with a local solicitor.
You need to start by getting theaddress. The more work you do, the lessmoney you would have to pay a solicitor.
Once you have an address for her, to be honest I would start with the police and press them hard.
No, we just aren't allowed to take work from this site.
All the best.
