Alright now i went to another forum out of good trust and for some unknown reason this weirdo starts on me. He then states to spread bogus rumours about me and says hes a police officer from america and he can have me arrested. Now when some friends of mine went over their and had a look around he made threats to them and told them they would be arrested to. He then goes on to state he has access to goverment resources and he can tell me who i live with and he knows exactly who i am. He then tells me hes reporting me to my local police for something i didnt even do. He cant prove his claims either so could the police actually arrest me or is he talking loads of crap. I left the forum to break contact so he will lose interest and move on but i bet he will be doing a search for my email addy and user names the weirdo. I wouldnt give out that forums link due to the fact that Trust me your better of staying away from it. I dont think you could get rid of the person threatening me. Whats even more worrying about this nutcase is he has no evidence to back up his allegation. Different people went over their and he threatend to have them arrested and imprisoned.
He even threatend to report me to the police and said that the police would never belive me if i told them my side of the story and that i will end up in prison. Hes also got another person to lie for him as well. I notified the host of that site and they told me they couldnt do anything about it and that i would need a court order for them to take action.
Their members post other members personal information
They stalk other members even phoning them up
They will obtain anything you have on your profile like email addy and stuff and will post that out.
They will lie and slander anyone they dont know and the admins wont deal with it.
They will even get any pictures you have posted of yourself and edit them with really sick content.
Now that you know what your in for i wouldnt permit anyone to have the link sorry its just to dangerous
Please help this is really worrying me

I seriously doubt that this person has anything whatsoever to go to any police with. Even if he knows your IP address (*gasp* – don't worry), there's really nothing he can do. My guess is that he/she is just talking big, trying to scare you and intimidate you just to get a kick out of it.
if by some chance they do decide to go to the police (HIGHLY unlikely), what could they possibly tell the police that would have any weight whatsoever? Nothing. If you're not doing anything illegal, they have no grounds for any sort of accusations.
unless the police have solid evidence, or at least strong reasonable suspicion, they can't do anything to you.
short answer: Don't worry. They're just screwing with you.March 1, 2006 at 4:10 am #139051AwesomeSauceParticipant
I totally agree with Tigerblade here. Don't worry about it at all, unless you've given out specific personal information (like street address, or phone number). Then I would worry about him trying to call you or something like that. But seriously… just forget about it. There are a lot of sick people on the internet who try to scare people with things like this, ignore them.
But if anything worse happens to you on this, let us know, or rather, let the proper authorities know.March 1, 2006 at 5:27 am #139052neo_ny_23Member
Yup. Dont worry. Dogs who bark, never bite. If you know the person yourself and if you are sure that he is a cop and if the things get reallllly unbearable, just file him for harrasment or get a restraining order or just hand him over to the real cops. That will wake him up.March 1, 2006 at 10:53 am #139057
Thing is he sasy he knows my location and who i live with and he really has made sick accusations about me that even he himself admited he was lying. He also made a shockwave flash animation with a mock funeral. I mean this is really disturbing isnt it.March 1, 2006 at 12:27 pm #139053sarahtownyMember
I certainly agree Astrocat, this type of behaviour on the net is totally unacceptable. If I were you I would certainly not go back to that forum, he is just thriving on making you unhappy and as so far been doing that very well.
I do think the host of the site could have taken more action, i.e ban him but as they haven't keep your head down, and put it down to a bad experience. And steer clear of any places he might visit.
I would keep any emails that arrive from him and if he persist's take it up with the police. As I am quite sure he is not one of them!
Keep safe and hope he leaves you alone ;0)March 1, 2006 at 2:49 pm #139054NessaParticipantAstrocat wrote:Thing is he sasy he knows my location and who i live with and he really has made sick accusations about me that even he himself admited he was lying.

You say that “he SAYS” he knows your location, but does he really? Does he really know who you live with? Or does he just keep saying he does? If that's the thing then you have to remember this is the net and i can say i know anyone's address but when in reality i don't. Those accusations you speak of won't matter if you haven't done anything bad. All that proof he says he has is just his scare tactics. He must get a kick out of watching people squirm. That flash animation you say he made just shows he loves watching you suffer, just ignore it. If he ever did call you then just contact your local authorities because calling people and threatening them or presenting fear can be prosecuted. So just don't worry about it. Hope things get better though.
Also take some screen shots of him saying he's lying, so if it ever does become a big deal, you have your own “proof.”April 5, 2006 at 9:25 pm #139056imported_TakODaMember
http://www.wiredpatrol.org and your local police
In my state it says:
Under Senate Act 737 Louisiana Revised Statute 14:40.3 Cyberstalking is the action of any person using electronic mail or electronic communication to communicate to another repeatedly for the purpose of threatening, terrifying, or harassing any person. Whoever commits the crime of cyberstalking shall be fined not more than two thousand dollars, or imprisoned for not more than one year, or both.

You should definatly: A.) remove or unsubscribe yourself from that forum, and B.) block that person from you IM…
If he is still doing this crap, after you do steps A and B, I would contact police and get a harrassment order set-up.April 6, 2006 at 12:53 pm #139049OreoMember
Isn't there also a site that rates websites for safety? Maybe report him the that particular website so others do not unwittingly wind up there. This guy is blowing a lot of smoke out of his behind…if you believe what he says…he wins…like was mentioned earlier…he's admitted to lying, he only “says” he knows things about you…..without proof, he's got nothing…except for WAY too much time and a sick mind.April 8, 2006 at 7:01 pm #139058
Hi guys its been a long time this guy hasnt bothered me since i left the forum but hes been following me round forum to forum in the past and he reckons hes protected by his civil rights and whats even really wierd about this nut job is a so called disclaimer on one particular forum protects him from what he does. I tried notifying the host of the site and they did nothing about it but say oh we need a valid account to log onto that forum.
Whats even more disturbing about that forum is other people have had photos of their home address took and posted on their the moderators did little about it but allowed it to continue. Even racial hatred and rumours about people are spread round which is why i left their.
Surely someone on here is clever enough to get that forum shut down.April 8, 2006 at 7:21 pm #139047AnnaParticipant
…And you're protected by the civil rights of cyberstalking. (Assuming you live in the States, if not, I can provide links for other countries as well)
At this point, if you still believe his actions constitue as “harassment”, I'd go sit down with a laywer or your local police, explain the situation and ask what can be done.
There's absolutely no reason why you should have to tolerate it.April 29, 2006 at 2:52 pm #139059
This ones going to humour you lot. Upon having left that forum for months a friend of his passes a message on from him to me
” I have no rights since no lawyer will ever defend me and the police would never belive me either. He also says that i am to cease communications to other members of that forum and this so called way of communicating with me is legally binding and that any police officer will tell me this.
A few friends of mine went to confront him about what he was doing and he told them he had them tracked down and they would be aprehended.:woot:April 29, 2006 at 10:15 pm #139060FancyMember
I sure hope by now you can see who you are dealing with and know you can stop worrying. Always keep in mind that by choosing to visit any URL, and by choosing to sign up and give them personal information, you make yourself vulnerable to this kind of situation. By just visiting a website the owner of that site knows things about you, right down to what kind of browser you use and what size you set your screen resolution to display. So use caution, when you offer up more about yourself than you are already giving out for free just by surfing the net.April 29, 2006 at 10:38 pm #139062williamleeMember
I read all the post and this guy has nothing to do with law enforcement and most likely couldnt get out of a parking ticket. there are ways to end the problem your having with this guy and no matter what he says the police are on your side. I suggest you dont send friends to see about this guy have your local law enforcement check it out. If what you say about this site is true the law enforcement can get them shut down. good luck
