I RECEIVED A THREATENING TELEPHONE CALL IS THIS ILLEGAL?

Hello,
My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with your question.
From whom did you get a threatening call? That is, was it a person whom you know, or a debt collection call or something else? If a person, do you know who and where he or she is?
What was the nature of the threat?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
this was from a women client we did a service and she was not happy and wanted her money back but refused to return the information papers we provided her and yes I now who she is and where her in New Mexico and have not received a threatening letter from an attorney I need answer before I respond
Expert:  Zoey, JD replied 1 year ago.
Unfortunately, I still need an answer too. Not every threat is unlawful.
If she is threatening you to take you to court over a business dispute, for example, or to turn her matter over to an attorney, that would not be illegal. If she's threatening to kill or harm you, on the other hand, that is a criminal offense.
