Domain/Email Stalker?

    Hi, I have a wordpress.com blog: iamanafterschoolspecial.wordpress.com.

    I recently received a spam-ish email to the email address associated with my blog. It was also addressed to two other emails both of which are not mine. One was [email redacted] which when i email bounces back. The other is: [email redacted]

    This email address is familiar to me. I was contacted personally by the owner of this address to my blog email (which i have since changed) and we chatted back and forth. The person was mostly harrassing me about my content.

    In his final email he outwardly threatened me.

    I posted his email address on my blog.

    When i call the "spammer" I asked how they got they got the emails to send their message to. They informed me that those were the emails linked to my domain.

    Since i am not hosted I assume they meant my email domain? however they said it was that they were linked to my actual site.

    This is VERY concerning! How can this happen, what does it mean and WHAT CAN I DO?

    Also, what can [email redacted] do?

    This email is still active.

    PLEASE ADVISE ASAP

    Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is iamanafterschoolspecial.wordpress.com.

    I can't locate that relevant information above.

    Hi, thank you so much for the prompt response.

    No, it is not another blogger. Just a random person. I did call 411 who also suggested filing a police report. I have legal council

    What are the steps regarding non blogger threats?

  4. If you read that you will note it only applies to blogs hosted here. Otherwise you are on your own. You report to the police, hire an attorney and proceed with legal action.
