FORT WAYNE, Ind., May 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Intellitek Systems founder and CEO, Matthew May, today filed a lawsuit in the US District Court Northern District of Indiana against Lauren Sanford of Myrtle Beach, SC. In his suit, Mr. May alleges Ms. Sanford maliciously posted false and defamatory statements about him (May) on Google Reviews.
“I hired Ms. Sanford via a popular freelancer job platform to perform various administrative tasks for my company. I should have known when she attempted to circumvent the platform’s billing practices by suggesting payment via a third party cash app that I should have avoided working with Ms. Sanford. Against my better judgment, I proceeded with the hiring decision, and when I refused to provide payment for unsubstantiated billed hours, Ms. Sanford retaliated by slanderously calling me a criminal in an online public forum. Ms. Sanford must now be held accountable for her egregious behavior,” May commented.
