People asked to remove posts as part of deal to get money back.
Adam Dicker has hired a lawyer to handle claims made by people who say he owes them money.
The letter states:
The post, made by username “Shane Bellone” is replete with highly damaging false, defamatory and malicious statements. The statements include that our client Mr. Dicker is “a predator” and a “criminal”; that he “treats employees like shit…or outright refuses to pay them”, that he is “extorting people” and that he makes “threats”.
The letter goes on to state that a number of responses on the website contain false and defamatory materials, and claims that some of the disparaging posts were made by usernames connected to recipients of the letter.
Recipients are then informed that Dicker would like to come to a negotiated settlement, which would include taking steps to remove disparaging posts.
If people don’t want to negotiate?
“If you do not wish to discuss resolution of this matter then our client will hold you responsible to the full extent of the law for any breach of our client’s rights.”
Shane Bellone, who posted the initial story that caused the uproar, has started a GoFundMe page to hire a lawyer. The page claims the lawyer will represent “those impacted by this fiasco”.
$1,710 has been raised so far.
