Third, this person is gathering information about me to an extent that is disturbing. She knows significant details about my personal life despite my precautions (blocking her online, ending real-life friendships with mutual friends, and protecting anything I post on a social networking site).
Nice of you to assume that, but no. My stepmother, the one whose name and identity the emailer tried to assume, contacted the first dog rescue. They confirmed that it was her name and identity that was used in the original email.
Since she was using the same name, and the email is what disqualified me from adopting, then it is highly unlikely that the contents of the original email differed from those of the "sting" email I received.
If it means it will create a legal record of her offenses (no matter how petty) that will intensify her level of punishment should she decide to continue or escalate the abuse, then yes. What started with rude and nasty comments online has crossed a line into my real life and reputation and it need not go any further.
If it means it will scare her into leaving me the hell alone, then yes.
If it means I will have some legal basis to get a restraining order against her and prevent her from doing bodily harm to me or my family in the future--which is usually how these stalking situations end up--then yes.
I just found out the other day that she's moving from the East coast to my city. If she is using someone else's account every four hours to check in on me via Facebook, there's no telling what will happen when she lives in the same zip code.
Because it wasn't accurately reported. She took what I said about a former boss and sent it to my supervisor at a different job, along with lies about often overhearing me say things like that in person. (Remember, we have never actually met in real life.) However, this happened in 2008 and I think there's a one year statute of limitations on defamation.
Clearly. Which is why I didn't ask that question. What I asked is if false police reports could be filed using my license plate number. What that question implied is if that scenario was possible, or if I would have found out by now.
