Customer: i was in a relationship with a guy, it wasn’t for very long. I’m a NZ citizen and his on a work visa. He asked me out so I wanted to take things slow to see how it goes. I have a property on my own,which he was aware of it. He tricked me to asked for my bank account details, later he was putting money into my bank account showing as bill payment for us both to use...as we were in a relationship.he used to come over to my place, stay-over, and slowing he was pushing me for marriage and becoming abusing me. i was scared so I kept it to myself and still seeing if it’s going to work later what he did when I told him I continue with this relationship he threaten to kill me but I don’t have that as a record few weeks when I didn’t talk to him he defamed me by messaging my family members that I used his money and few weeks ago I received a letter from his lawyer that I need to pay him approx 75K I had to look for a lawyer and she said we ain’t paying anything because it was a gift and his an adult he was throwing money on me. And yesterday I received a letter where is lawyer filed to court so now I dunno what to do this is affecting me his trying to hack my account if he can find something about me who I’m dating or was dating he saw a pic with my cousin actually his a gay so he forwarded to his lawyer that I was cheating on him I’m really lost with this yes I’m currently talking to someone new because I’m tired of the way I was treated with him
