Registered post contents - if the receiver denies the receip

Hello Experts,

I have found myself in two situations where i had sent a written reply to letters from a lawyers office wanting for an amicable settlement. I do not want to take matters to the court as this will prolong the issue and wish to settle this within ourselves.. The question is,


1. Even though i have a copy of the letter and acknowledgement for sending out the letter via registered post, is there a chance the receiver can say "The contents of the letter he received is not the same as what i(sender) has" ?


2. What happens if removes one page from the bunch of pages that i have sent and says that this is what he received ? Also I


Need your opinions on, What are the procedures that i had to make sure when sending such replies so that the scenarios mentioned above can be avoided ?

do all of the above as advised. nevertheless it is not so easy for him to replace a page. forensic science can come to your rescue - that paper will not match with rest of papers, printing style will not match, context will not match, etc. once fraud is proven the OP is in trouble.
