Someone is threatening me by saying they will send photos

Customer Question

Hello, Someone is threatening me by saying they will send photos they got probably from a private investigator of me outside of a hotel one night and saying they are going to send them to my fiancé. The person in question is also her ex boyfriend. Is there anything I can do to stop him legally?

Do you know why they are going to do this? Are they asking for anything? Also, why would you be naked outside of a hotel room? Were you on the balcony?

Thank you for the additional information. If he is not asking for anything, then there is nothing illegal about him sending these photos to your fiance. If he demand X amount of money or else he would release them, then his actions would be criminal and you could go to the police. Based upon what you shared above, he is trying to ruin the relationship by sharing these but his decision to show them to her, is not criminal or would amount to the court being able to take any civil action either. If the photos were legally obtained, he can share them with her, if he wants. I know this was not what you were hoping to hear but if nothing happened at the home and you have a basis to support being there, your fiance should under the situation and that he is only trying to cause trouble.
