Someone on my coop board has been using their work email address for coop board matters. I believe now my personal information has been jeopardized along with all shareholders. I reported the issue to the employer and since then the individual has switched to a personal email. I would like to send a cease and desist letter to ensure personal info is no longer jeopardized. Is this advisable?
Cease and desist letters are only effective if they are back by credible litigation.
A "cease and desist" letter is ineffective unless backed by a credible threat of litigation. Accordingly, a cease and desist letter from a non-lawyer is somewhat of an empty gesture.
