Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
HelloMy name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to discussing this and providing you information in this regard.I am sorry to hear you are being stalked in this manner
I suggest first of all that you may never be able to get through to FB absent a local attorney writing them a letter but you would have to know who she is - fakes on your page - because they are not going to ban her and if they did she could reappear as someone else.So let's start with what you can try to controlI suggest that you write her a letter - tell her that she must immediately cease and desist all contact. And that she must immediately cease and desist telling untruths or spreading rumors about you as both behaviors are annoying, harassing, defamatory and is considered Criminal Harassment if not borderline Stalking. State that you will have no other option but to file those criminal charges and get a Restraining Order against her unless she stops immediately.This letter needs to be mailed Certified with a Return Receipt Requested. I suggest if you really want impact you get a local attorney to write the letter on letterhead.If she continues with this behavior then you file a police report, have her charged and get a Restraining Order.This will stop her and also show your associates that she is a loony bird who you needed to do this so she would stop stalking you.I hope that this information is helpful. If you need further information, please just send me a reply asking for clarification. After that, I hope you will enter a positive rating so that I will be credited for assisting you. Thanks again for using this service. Your business is appreciated
I agree; figured this was the course of action. I have seen a few different types of Cease & desist letters, with the implied threat of legal action if they are not heeded.But to get one sent from a lawyer's letterhead paper, how much would that cost me? Like $250?If I could draft one myself, I am a very proficient writer and could make it look official. Do you have a recommendation as to a free, online template I could use?Thank you!
HelloI suggest about $250 for the letterAnd there is no template.
Just start out This is a Notice for you to Cease and Desist. And then begin to explain that the behavior is harassing, etc.If you write it I can make suggestions on your final copy.

RE: Cease and desist from harassing
This CEASE AND DESIST ORDER is to inform you that your persistent actions including but not limited to: XXXXX XXXXX me, verbally abusing me in private messages on facebook, contacting my fan page because I’ve blocked you from my personal page, spying on me with numerous fake facebook proviles, equating me with loved ones who have passed on, wanting me in a romantic way, harassing fellow models and photographers about me, disparaging me to others in my industry, slandering my character to others in my industry, and getting others to take actions against me when they have not even talked to me, have become unbearable. You are ORDERED TO STOP such activities immediately as they are being done in violation of the law.
I have the right to remain free from these activities as they constitute harassment/stalking/etc., and I will pursue any legal remedies available to me against you if these activities continue. These remedies include but are not limited to: XXXXX XXXXX enforcement to obtain criminal sanctions against you, and suing you civilly for damages I have incurred as a result of your actions.
Again, you must IMMEDIATELY STOP all communications having to do with me, my modeling, my character, AND my image(s) and send me written confirmation that you will stop such activities. You risk incurring some very severe legal consequences if you fail to comply with this demand.
This letter acts as your final warning to discontinue this unwanted conduct before I pursue legal actions against you. At this time, I am not contacting the authorities or filing civil suit against you, as I hope we can resolve this matter without authoritative involvement. I am not under any circumstances, however, waiving any legal rights I have presently, or future legal remedies against you by sending you this letter. This order acts as ONE FINAL CHANCE for you to cease your illegal activities before I exercise my rights.
To ensure compliance with this letter, and to halt any legal action I may take against you, I require you to fill in and sign the attached form and mail it back to me within 10 days of your receipt of this letter. Failure to do so will act as evidence of your infringement upon my legal rights, and I will immediately seek legal avenues to remedy the situation.
HelloGood.First of all, it is not an ORDER. So I suggest that you Change all references of ORDER to NOTICEThis is NOTICE, etc.This NOTICE is a final notice/warning whichever you preferI also suggest that having her sign an acknowledgement is not necessary and negates your Cease and Desist any and all contact.When you mail it, take it to the PO and have it sent Certified Mail and tell them you want a Return Receipt Requested. That means when the letter is delivered and she signs for it the receipt will come back to you and that will be your proof that you put her on Notice, mailed it and she indeed got it. Of course, keep a copy for your records.You need to do this so that you can show that she has been told the behavior is not appropriate, appreciated and harassing. Otherwise, she can say "Well, I had no idea that he did not like it"
Gotcha! thanks. it was part of a template. So she is getting put on NOTICE and take out the part of her signing anything and sending it back. otherwise one could argue that she didn't agree to the terms since she didn't send anything back.This just shows from my end, that I've done everything I can to get her to stop without taking actual legal action through the police, courts, etc.Thank you!WW
