    Hi,
    I have a girl that used to be a friend of mine who is sending me messages threatening to disclose personal information about me that will ruin my reputation and everything in my life. She hasn't done it yet but I have the proof and everything and witnesses and really just scared of what might happen. What can I do? I don't want to wait till its too late.

    Please help, Kind reagards .xx

    From a practical perspective, have you asked your former friend to stop harassing you?

    I agree with John. And put it in writing so there is a paper trial. And reminding (or informing them) of possible consequences, due to the possible illegality and possible defamatory nature of what is to be alleged or said, along with breach of privacy. Say something like legal advice will be or is being sought, and or will be acted upon.

    Hope that is of assistance.
    Paul
