This is an odd one . . . a friend of mine wanted to open up an INTERNET business , but wanted to remain a " silent partner " . He wanted to partner with me so he could use my name . He did not want his employer at the time to know he was opening up his own business ( for numerous reasons ) . During this time my partner started using my email to correspond with vendors , customers etc . and pretended to be me . Out of the blue he decides that I should only get 10s , but still wants to be me . I said NO because that was not our agreement . After I said NO I started noticing revenues dip . I also noticed he opened up his own company doing the same thing we were doing . Now he tells me he is shutting down our business . Can he shut it down / sabotage revenues without my consent ?I have tried to work things out with him, but ever since I said no to his new proposed revshare....he doesn't respond to my emails. Obviously he doesn't care how the business ends since no one knows it is his business. It is only my reputation that will be affected.
