My employer is a small privately owned business that has weekly newspapers in neighboring cities within the San Joaquin Valley. I showed him a nasty text message I received from this person in November (actually five or six messages). This was the first email I received from him that was threatening legal action against me for lying in my editorials. I severed all personal contact with the letter writers back in November. However, they have friends throughout the US and two of those friends have sent me nasty text messages from numbers I'm unfamiliar with. Unfortunately, the first set of text messages are gone once I got rid of my old cell phone and I have the one recent text message sent from Arkansas. Did a reverse phone look up but could not get a name. I've asked the sheriff's department to check out the number and still waiting for a reply as to their success.
This person who emailed me subjected me to drunken rants on the phone throughout 2011. I would just listen and say umm or something like that. Never giving my opinion on what he would be spouting about. This most recent letter was another drunken rampage attacking my character and business ethics. Threatening me with legal action for an editorial I wrote, which by the way the information was confirmed by the mayor that everything I wrote was factual. I've decided to ignore everything I receive from these two persons.
Thank you for your response. I appreciate it.
