Purpose of this Site - page 2

While some people, namely Providian legal counsel, may see this web site as slanderous, libelous or malicious let’s take a look at these three words to see if they apply to this site. According to the 4th Edition of the American Heritage® Dictionary...
(Copyright © 2000, Houghton Mifflin Company).

Li·bel   (lbl)
  1. A false publication, as in writing, print, signs, or pictures, that damages a person's reputation.
  2. The act of presenting such material to the public.

Libel deals only with FALSE publications. Everything in this web site is TRUE. If anyone has any facts that contradict ANY of the content on this web site please present them to me so that I may correct this web site. I wish to maintain a factual account of my dealings with Providian.

slan·der   (slndr)
  1. Law. Oral communication of false statements injurious to a person's reputation.
  2. A false and malicious statement or report about someone.

OK. As for this web site being slanderous — slander involves making false statements. All of the statements I make here are backed up with FACT consisting of solid tangible evidence. Hard evidence presented on this site will validate all of the claims made by me regarding Providian Financial’s actions concerning my personal situation with them. Providian Financial employees telephone conversations with me (recorded legally) will prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Providian employees either:
A) Do not know the law (Credit Services Act of 1984)


B) Do not think the law applies to them.
Either way my rights as a credit consumer have been trampled and that is why this web site exists. Perhaps others can learn from my mistakes.

Now. On to our other definition:

mal·ice   (mls)
  1. A desire to harm others or to see others suffer; extreme ill will or spite.
  2. Law. The intent, without just cause or reason, to commit a wrongful act that will result in harm to another.
