Georgia McPherson v. McPherson, 238 Ga. 271 S.E.2d 552 (1977) "In a civil case, a court will not exercise jurisdiction which rests upon service of process on a defendant who has been decoyed, enticed, or induced to come within the court's reach by any false representation, deceitful contrivance, or wrongful device for which the plaintiff is responsible. The basis of this is not that the court did not acquire jurisdiction, but that it should abstain from exercising jurisdiction in view of the unfair manner in which it was procured." Extract from Lawskills.com.
  128 Ga.App. 764, 197 S.E. 2d 833, Hickey v Merritt (Ga.App.1973) "The added notation indicating he saw the defendants from a window, and talked to them through the door, even though they refused to open the door, merely explains in greater detail how he perfected the personal service on Clarence (appellant herein) and Norma Hickey.
Even if we assume, and there is no proof in the record, that appellant's copy was left at his door at the same time service was effected for which the return was made there is no inconsistency. If defendants would not open the door the process server had no alternative to leaving a copy at the door so defendants could pick it up when he departed. Leaving it at the door is consistent with the notation on that return "Seen from window, talked to through door, refused to open."


The critical question is the fact of service and not the nature of the return. The return shows personal service and appellant has presented no evidence to disprove that service. Only one type of service is indicated in the return to the court, viz., personal service.

It is the duty of a defendant to accept and submit to the service of process when he is aware of the process server's purpose. Gumperz v. Hofmann, 245 App. Div. 622, 624 (283 NYS 823), affirmed in 271 N. Y. 544 (2 NE2d 687). To same effect is Hiller v. Burlington & Missouri River R. Co., 70 N. Y. 223, 227." Extract from Lawskills.com.
