Adult cyber dating best free adult dating sites
I have spoken to some victims who have consulted with attorneys who want a significant sum of money to get involved, even at a basic level.I can only imagine how frustrating this is after experiencing emotional and psychological suffering – and then realizing that you can’t afford to get legal help.We get a lot of emails, phone calls, and comments on this blog from adults who are being bullied though technology. We know that cyberbullying negatively affects adults too.They stress to us that cyberbullying is not just an adolescent problem. It’s just that we spend the majority of our efforts studying how this problem impacts school-aged youth due to their tenuous developmental stage.
Second, contact the service or content provider through which the bullying is occurring.
In Wisconsin, for example, it is a misdemeanor if someone uses computerized communication systems to “frighten, intimidate, threaten, abuse, or harass another person.” It is also against the law to “harass annoy, or offend another person.” See what the laws in your state are to determine if the police should get involved.
If the threats or comments are detrimental to your health, safety, or occupation, you might want to consult with an attorney who specializes in harassment, defamation of character, false light, intentional infliction of emotional distress, or similar types of civil action.
If you are ever afraid for your safety, you need to contact law enforcement to investigate.
They can determine whether any threats made are credible.
