Yup, they did it. FBG Internet crossed the line. I can´t believe they did it, but it appears that they have. They have broken the law.
You see as you can read on this blog, I Oliver Bray have had a bit of a run in with these people, i have taken them to task on their rip of practices, and given an open honest review of FBG internet, but not written anything that could be considered Libel. Just posted my dealings with them.
But it seems they have responded, in perhaps the only way they know how by writing comments on different sites that are untrue, made up and completely breaking the law.
It seems we are not the only company out there that has been not only threatened with this, but also received this kind of attention, because reading the posts made by the same profile, posted on a review site called hello Peter also lays into aday driving school
Now here is the great part.
One of the persons responsible at FBG internet his name is Ben Gresty by the way, 19 years old and the sales (manager) for FBG. Take a look at this. Can´t be too bright because he has left and electronic paper train back to him posting the illegal slanderous remarks.
Yes we have his email address, his IP address and the contents of his posts:
i beleive you need to take this company of your directory as they are a SCAM and they take people money not taking a clance back at the damage they cause families SCAM
Which our lawyers inform me is more than enough to sue him, quite successfully for damages.
Whoops Ben. Well done there. Of course, as some one such as yourself who is in a telesales operation, I have no idea if you could actually afford the legal fees and damages, which ultimately you would have to pay. If you couldn´t we would also have to prove that the posts came from FBG internet so we could also hold them responsible. Well it is a damn shame for you we have the IP address of the post then and your email and your name and where you work.
You see you have to be very careful what you say on line, as your own law services department told me, because this can result in a lot of legal costs for you. Going by "law services Department" and FBG Internet,s own tariffs that would be the following:
- SMS / Email Correspondence - €300
- Telephone Calls - €450
- Fax Correspondence - €450
- Letter of Demand - €600
- Issue of Summons - €2.500
- Court Fees - €10.000
So Ben, I have already emailed you personally with this:
"It is very unwise to post things online that are untrue and libellous. We know it was you and we know you work for New approach. I will not hesitate to sue you personally if this becomes a problem, and please be aware we have the legal means and people in place to do this. So I suggest you just don´t do it. You can´t hide your actions online I am afraid."i suggest you take it seriously, fair warning in my opinion, after all you were probably not aware of the implications. Well you are now.
FBG Internet. Rip you off, you cancel, you stick a review of the services recieved on line and then they set about slandering your company illegally. You decide if you want to use there services.
