In an interesting case, a small business owner has been found guilty of sending threatening communications, mail fraud, and wire fraud. Digital Life is reporting that Vitaly Borker pleaded guilty to harassing customers in email, including threatening to come to their houses to assault them if they complained about his business. In an interesting side note, Digital Life also says that when customers complained on other sites, it drove Borker’s website higher in the Google rankings. However, that is probably little consolation now that he is facing six years in prison.
The lesson from this case – be careful what you say in emails to your customers! If you have questions about making sure you are legally okay online, contact your Denver business attorney today at 720-258-6647!
