Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will help you. I am just reviewing your question. Hopefully, we can get this resolved quickly.

I am sorry but its bad news.

Just because a customer has made a false statement does not mean you have a claim.

Its the same if someone makes a complaint to the Police and the Defendant is later found not guilty.

I am sorry if this is not the answer you want, nor the one I want to give you, but I have a duty, to be honest.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today, please?

If you need anything further I am available for a follow up at no extra cost.

I was just following up to see if there is anything else I can assist you with today? If so, just let me know.

If not, then I am happy to have been able to assist you.

thank you for your reply, so there would be no case for defamation?

Correct. Does that assist?
