Fake Negative Reviews

[ Edited ]

A former customer is leaving fake reviews filled with falsehoods. What can we do? 


This person paid for one month, then did not renew the service and wanted free work to be done or threatened he would leave a negative review. His own business is tanking because of his incompetence and he just wants to be spiteful to the people that can actually help him. 


Any ideas? How do I explain to Google the problem>
