Hello and thank you for your question. I am sorry that you are having these difficulties with these two individuals, I can understand how distressing this can be for you. Unfortunately I cannot tell you why they are doing this to you as I have never spoken to them nor can I read their minds concerning their motives for this harassment. It sounds like they enjoy hurting other people and spreading lies about them which could be a sign of a significant personality disorder like Antisocial Personality Disorder (ASPD) or Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD). Individuals with these personality disorders tend to manipulate, lie, and harass others often, so that could be what you are dealing with here, but I cannot diagnose them without a face to face evaluation. They tend to enjoy bringing others down as that provides them with control and power, and helps them to feel better overall about themselves, so this could be the motivation by them.
