I am in the state of Arkansas. I do have several emails that allude to threats. Though they are not overt, they are, as I said, alluded to. This individual has the tendency to periodically send me emails of an well worded, though threatening nature. What I consider to be typical of an a psychopathic/borderline personality. I have known her for years and quite frankly, she scares me. She has a pattern of making outrageous and slanderous claims against others who have cut her out of their lives, and has also harassed them. I feel as though I am her next victim. If you would like , I can send you those emails I have received. As I said before, they are not overtly threatening, but psychopaths have a way of making their threats in a subvert manner rather than downright overt ones, to avoid being caught. I had to change my phone number to avoid her harassments but now she is using my email address as a means to throw digs and subvert threats in my direction.
I have not contacted authorities because I'm not sure if I have enough evidence to do so. BotXXXXX XXXXXne, I want this woman to stop contacting me. Though I like to think of myself as a strong individual, the thought of a malicious and vindictive person such as this woman having me as her target, greatly unnerves me. She has a history of liking to "punish" those who have done her wrong. And according to her, the wrong I have done her was cutting her out of my life.
I know this may not help much, but I would appreciate any advice I could get.
Thank you for your time.
