Director works for Teacher. Director tells Relative to post testimonial that Relative failed exam after using Teacher's competitor (Competitor), and then when Relative used services of Teacher, Relative passed exam. Relative never used services of Competitor or Teacher. Director also posts testimonials using made up names praising services of Teacher. These testimonials don't represent real people or students of Teacher, and have 2nd postings to Teacher's friend's business because Director and Teacher think if account has 2 testimonials, it will unlikely be removed by review website for being fake. Are fake testimonials illegal? Competitor discovered testimonials fake and posted so on Internet that Teacher was fraud for posting fake testimonials. Did Competitor defame Teacher?
