I had hired a programmer that scammed me out of $6,000. I posted the information on wordpress blog I setup under hisname.com. I only posted emails and my account of what happened. He sent me a takedown notice referencing
"Under the UDRP i am formally requesting that you do so before i take action against you for impersonation and acting in Bad Faith regarding the registration of the domains.
Additionally please be aware per California Senate Bill 114, California Penal Code Section 528,5, that credibly impersonating another person on the web "for the purpose of harming, intimidating, threatening, or defrauding another person" is now punishable with a fine unto $1,000 and/or one year in prison."
Do I have to take any action?

You should meet with an attorney to discuss your case in more detail. There is no way to answer your question without seeing what you posted and in what context.
