    But as a lawyer and fraud examiner i need to tell you that before your friend looses his mind he needs first to be sure that he is not a victim of FRAUD ...the person that extorts him maybe is part of a ring of professional extortionists that make their living using schemes of "statotory" rape..

    Athina’s Answer

    there are laws that handle those issues. Basically you have issues of stalking and issues of civil harassment that will guide to a TRO.
    Cyberstalking. Cyberstalking is the use of the Internet, email or other electronic communications to stalk, and generally refers to a pattern of threatening or malicious behaviors. Cyberstalking may be considered the most dangerous of the three types of Internet harassment, based on a posing credible threat of harm. Sanctions range from misdemeanors to felonies.
    Cyberharassment. Cyberharassment differs from cyberstalking in that it may generally be defined as not involving a credible threat. Cyberharassment usually pertains to threatening or harassing email messages, instant messages, or to blog entries or websites dedicated solely to tormenting an individual. Some states approach cyberharrassment by including language addressing electronic communications in general harassment statutes, while others have created stand-alone cyberharassment statutes.
