In all my years I have not come across someone like this person.

I wanted them out of my house ASAP when they came to do a small job.

Can I inform the court he is creating problems so he can attempt to take people to court, to protect others from this odd bod?

I should add he talks and texts about court and all the people he has taken over the years etc. He seems to set things up so there is a problem that enables him to do this court thing he is obsessed with.

He also moves around a lot and is VERY protective of HIS information, yet wants others info.

It is really, really hard to get someone declared a vexatious litigant, and IIRC one of the criteria is that they should never have won a case. If they have won a case, or several cases, then it is not likely to happen.

It may be that he has a favourite court, or if he stays in the same town or city he may use the local court repeatedly. If so, the court staff will be very aware of him.

The court can make an order declaring someone a vexatious litigant, so it may be worth have a word with any court that you know he has dealt with.

Be very careful and always ask for costs. Good luck. x

Found this while googling - the psychology behind it.

I won't bother then. It's sad for the next person he tries it on with. He knows how to manipulate things his way. I managed not to fall for his trap, others won't be so lucky, he's a bully.

If he is a tradesperson, then exposing his MO via a range of very factual internet reviews is probably the best you can do.
