All About Cybercrime

Cyber Law and Harassment

The Arizona laws quoted above shows that legal language can be a bit obscure for those not familiar with its interpretation.  If a part of the law that applies to an individual’s circumstance seems difficult to understand, they should consult a lawyer to evaluate their position as the best course of action.

Threats over the Web

No one wants to be the recipient of threatening or hostile messages.  Sadly, many people know what it is like to be the target of this sort of intimidation.  For some, the natural response is to delete these kinds of messages and try to forget they ever existed.  If the person who sent the message is a jokester with bad taste, this might be all that is necessary.

If, on the other hand, an individual has become the target of a more determined, perhaps distorted personality, ignoring the messages completely could be an invitation for more trouble.

The obvious question then is, how does a person know what they are dealing with, and therefore what to do about it?  In most cases, the victim will have no way of figuring that out.  They will simply not have enough information to make that kind of determination.

In addition to the lack of information, fear can affect judgment.  If someone is rattled because of the messages they are receiving, it can be difficult to know exactly how to proceed. It can, in fact, be difficult to do anything at all, even normal daily activities, depending on the level of the threat.

Are intimidating e-mails a matter for law enforcement?  For a person receiving these sorts on messages, feelings waver.  On one hand, going to the police might be an over reaction.  On the other, not doing something may be foolish and place the recipient in serious danger.
