Poison pen letters are unpleasant letters written and sent anonymously with the intention of causing trouble to the recipient. Poison pen letters have the power to damage and even destroy a person’s reputation and have caused companies to fail in IPO deals. Some poison pen letters are more of an annoyance while others may be malicious, often including threats and causing emotional distress to the individuals involved.
What can an organisation do if one of its employees is the target of such vitriol?
As part of your investigation to identify the perpetrator of the handwritten letters, you may wish to consider engaging the expertise of a forensic document examiner to compare the writing on the letter(s) against known handwriting samples.
Act swiftly and decisively to avoid prolonging the anguish suffered by the victim. Contact a forensic expert for information on the relevant evidence to gather. The process of hiring an expert should be kept confidential to avoid tipping off the culprit.
