Hi.
Sacha_and_myself


My name is Wendi E. M. Scarth and I have run my Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, GIMP and Paint Shop Pro web sites successfully for over 10 years, without one bad word said against me. (
Students feedback page Adobe Photoshop tutorials - Students feedback Page Paint Shop Pro tutorials) my feedback pages speak volumes of my good character and name. However, I feel I need to put the record straight about some slanderous and insensitive remarks directed towards me by Mr John Burton of Tyne and Wear, England - by the medium of an uploaded (live) web page he has created and published.

Mr Burton has breached the Data Information Act 1998 (England) - broken the law in other words, by revealing to the internet my full home address of which he can be prosecuted.

Mr John Burton is determined to blacken my good character and name out of spite and revenge towards me for turning down his advances. In writing this page, I am exercising my right to defend my good name and character on a public platform.

Here’s my side to the story - thanks for reading it.

Early last year (2014) my husband of over 30 years (Peter) died suddenly, and in need of a handy man’s services I found Mr Burton’s handy man website on-line. He came around and was extremely chatty, friendly and helpful and he got on with his jobs for two days, then suddenly he started saying I was his soul mate, kept staring into my eyes saying I was adorable, that my eyes were huge, that he wanted to wrap himself up in me, that I had beautiful eyes, hair - that “I could fall in love with you in a heartbeat” to which I replied “don’t do that”. He said he loved my laugh and wanted it as a ring tone for his phone. He even invited himself around for Christmas dinner - I felt too intimidated to refuse. He was clearly trying it on and desperate to flatter me. I was very uncomfortable with him, especially after he bought me a solid silver heart attached to a key ring for his front door key, telling me all his clients give him a key to their front door (a hint to me?) I didn’t give him a key to my front door as by this time I was suspicious of his intentions. To compound my feelings of unease he stopped working saying to me, “this is a social call today” and all he wanted to do was drink tea, smoke and chat/cuddle/kiss me - I know, but the flattery was overwhelming and I was falling for it and I missed my husband. I am quite a shy and unworldly person and I felt unable to tell him to stop as I was desperate for my jobs to be done; however he then informed me he was married - he told me they were separated, that he was moving out when he could and that they were living in the same house and ate together; that his wife still did his washing and ironing and cooked for him. He said to me in an angry voice “I even murdered my bloody dog for her” - his dog had bitten his wife a couple of times and was subsequently put to sleep. Most of his conversions (well his endless monologues really) were how awful his wife was and how he wished his elderly mother would hurry up and die so he could inherit her house. The latter deeply disturbed me and spoke volumes of the kind of man he is. I asked him if he would replace my kitchen door as it was hard for me to close it, and he said “don’t push me I am broken”. He then showed me his box of antidepressants.

I am a happy introvert and Mr Burton said to me “you live inside your head don’t you, I have a plan to get you out more, the world needs to see more of Wendi Scarth”. When in fact, I was very happy with my life as it was and was never looking for a replacement for my husband.

He sent me many loving and overwhelming e-mails, all of which have been retained in case I need to show them to my solicitor. At the time, (this was late October early December 2014, I sent the emails to my friends as I couldn’t believe how fast he was moving and what he was saying to me - my head was in whirl and I found I couldn’t think straight. My friends warned me he was trying it on and were concerned for me. Two said “he doesn’t seem genuine - and to be careful”.

He wouldn’t carry out the arranged jobs saying he was depressed and unmotivated. I still felt unable to push him as he was very intimidating and I don’t have a family that could have supported me.

In the end, bolstered by my friends’ advice - I plucked up the courage to tell him his services were no longer needed as I was not comfortable with his unwanted advances. I admit, in a moment of weakness, I went for a coffee with him and all he did was say the people in the cafe were “not good looking”. I was very embarrassed - this was the day before I “finished” with him.

In a moment of impulsiveness, I sent a letter to his wife informing her of his intentions towards me - I now regret the letter. I also left a truthful review on his web site; I don’t regret the review as it was a fair and a true reflection of his work, I stated he was unmotivated and that he thankfully didn’t charge me for work already carried out. I also wanted to warn other women of this predatory tendencies and I mentioned in the review that he was “more interested in me than doing his job”. I did mention in the review that his work was good.

Instead of taking it on the chin - after all it was Mr Burton who pursued me relentlessly - my letter to his wife and the review I left on his web site sent Mr Burton on a furious road of hatred and revenge and he subsequently uploaded slanderous comments onto his web site about me. He has even published my name and home address to the world, which is breaking the law, displaying my personal details blaming me for his terrible behaviour and calling me all kinds of ungracious names. I was faithful to my husband for 33 years. All I wanted was a handy man to repair my house and nothing more, I wasn’t interested in him in a romantic way, not at all - he set out to bombard me with flattery and compliments - and I admit to falling for his false flattery - stupid women that I am. I feel he set out to take advantage of my “softness” (his word) and my vulnerability right from the start as he said to me “I was working towards getting you to like me and fall for me” - he said, “I have a plan, I always have a plan”. 

Mr Burton even wrote in his website in big red letters - Gentlemen Beware of Wendi Scarth, when it was he who pursued me. That did make me giggle as anyone who knows me knows I wouldn’t say boo to a goose and I am very shy around men.

I have been in touch with my solicitor and the local police (I am a single women living by myself and I am now scared of Mr Burton), and they are advising me to prosecute Mr Burton for displaying “sensitive information” - my full home address to the world (which is against the law and breaches England’s Data Protection Law 1998) - however, I am reluctant to do so because I am fearful of harmful repercussions.

Mr Burton was clearly looking to take advantage of a vulnerable women who had not long lost her husband and alas, that’s within the law.

Mr Burton has the same kind of negative/slanderous comments on his web site directed towards the DIY store B&Q. For some reason he despises them and wants everyone to know.

In the last six months, electricians, plumbers, plasterers, roofers, floor layers, gardeners, drain companies, kitchen fitters, scrap metal companies, painter and decorators have been in my house and every one has been courteous, got on with their jobs without procrastinating or being reminded to get on with their work.

I have had a such a terrible time with Mr Burton; and even though he was in my life for just four weeks, I sought the private services a councillor to overcome my traumatic experience. So ironically he was correct in one respect - something he wrote on his site about me, I did need professional help, but only for the damage caused by him.

As well as putting the record straight, this is a warning to all single women out there, do not fall for flattery, if someone quickly declares you as their soul mate after knowing you for a few days, run for the hills.

I am better prepared now (my husband protected me for 33 years), and I will never let anyone else treat me like that - or fall for flattery - false or otherwise, ever again:- as a direct consequence of my experience with Mr Burton I will stay single for the rest of my days.

Mr Burton told me he searched the government’s website to see what year I was married, when I asked why his reply was “I wanted to know that you were telling the truth about your years of marriage”. I replied, “all you had to do was ask me”. My personal website states I was married for 30 years. Mr Burton used to be a civil servant.

Lesson learnt, I will never trust again.

Thanks for listening; the good news is I have found two handy men, who are brilliant, so thanks guys for fitting my kitchen door and carrying out all the unfinished jobs. 

Finally. Mr Burton is the best carpenter I know of, his work is excellent, top notch! I am so disappointed he couldn’t have concentrated on his job and not me. If I wanted a man in a romantic way, I would join a dating agency, I haven’t done so because I am happy being single.

Wendi, Elizabeth Martha Scarth.
