    A small business is trying to undermine ours and gets friends of his to write things about us on Facebook telling people not to use our service. He also stalks us when we are working and tells clients not to use us when they are quoting. What can we do to stop this defamation?

    We have spoken to him and told him it has to stop but he won't leave us alone. Nothing has been reported to the police, I have screenshots on my phone of his friends slandering us on Facebook and I also have a voice recording of him when he rang our business pretending to be a genuine customer asking us how we do things and costs ect.

    He's a total stalker and people we engage to work for us have approached us and told us things he's saying. It all has to stop. How can I do this! Someone please help I don't know what our rights are but he is causing a lot of grief for us and our customers.

    We are good people who don't deserve this. We have done nothing to him. Business is business, but he is playing dirty. Someone help

    1. Hire a lawyer to write a 'cease and desist' letter. It is better having it on a lawyer's letterhead.

    2. Gather all your evidence and have it ready in case it is needed.

    3. Wait and monitor what he does.
