How do you tell another company you accepted another offer?
Should I tell a company I accepted another offer?
Be direct. It's perfectly professional to concisely advise the other employer that you have accepted another opportunity elsewhere. Being a desired candidate is appealing to employers. Those who advise they are taking opportunities elsewhere rather than not responding at all leave a more mature impression.
Should I lie about another job offer?
Don't lie. It generally will cause trouble for you. Instead of lying there are other ways you could have put some pressure on the decision.

Can you back out of accepted job offer?
Can you back out of the job offer? Yes. Technically, anyone can turn down a job offer, back out of a job already started, or renege on an acceptance at any point. Most states operate with what is called “at will employment.” This means the employee and the employer are not in a binding contract.
