I do not know where this person lives but she is accusing me of not paying her monies on an online business we never had nor existed, defaming me on my facebook business page and yelp and google. I thought it was a joke at first. I have no idea why after 8 years she is accusing me of stealing money? She also accused me of posing as a CIA to turn her in. I do know she is mentally unstable and sounds as if she could also be broke but to go to my business pages to slander me is too much. Can I send a cease and desist online through a service or something since I have no clue where she lives OR can I merely send her a cease and desist to her email which I have? Im hoping her so called lawyer calls me as I want to talk to him about why they suddenly became determined to do such an illegal thing.
A cease and desist letter from an attorney, on the attorney stationary, will be more effective. Do and online search for her current whereabouts. For a few dollars you should be able to locate her. Then hire an attorney to write a letter. Demand that the statements be retracted.
