The Internet is Hell
Currently being cyber-stalked / harrassed - possible recourse?
Deer LR,

I'm currently dealing with a crazy ex (I suspect) who is anonymously harassing my girlfriend via instagram, twitter, and even text message. The stalker has created accounts with my name and picture, calling me a cheater and commenting on my girlfriend's photos.

I can't prove who is behind this, but I do have a phone number and multiple anonymous instagram accounts. Called a few law firms this week but it sounds like ~$5,000 is the minimum to open one of these cases.

For context, I'm in my late 20s and have a career in a field I'm excited about (part of the reason I don't love having my name and image posted online). My girlfriend is obviously distraught over being anonymously targeted.

Always surprised by some of the good advice that comes from here and I know we've got posters with all sorts of experience and knowledge.

Thanks in advance for any serious (and non-serious) replies.
