Without wanting to be rude, that's the worst advice I've ever heard.
Basic rule of civil law - it's for the claimant to prove his case. The Defendant doesn't have to prove anything.
Claimant to police - "You did x, y and z".
Defendant "Ok, where's your evidence?".
Claimant "I have it, but I'm not giving it to you".
Defendant "Ok, thanks, bye!".
You have to prove your claim with evidence. Without it, you look crazy quite frankly.
