    Answered . You can hire a lawyer to write him a letter to show you are serious and ask for the photos back. You can also sue him for a restraining order/injunction.

    Answered . I got a girl 200k from her ex-boyfriend's homeowner's insurance, as he sent naked pictures from his home computer to her work, thus, a lawsuit could be pursued if this happens.

    Answered . If you think that this person presents a physical threat to you, I suggest that you file for a restraining order. It may also be worth your while to pay an attorney to write him a certified letter, advising him not to make contact with you and not to publish any photographs or in any other way defamed you or invade your privacy and, if he does, he will be sued. Quite often this type of attorney letter, sometimes referred to as a cease and desist letter, can be very effective. If this person approaches you in an aggressive manner, call the police.
