I am in the middle of a dispute with a vendor over a payment

Customer Question

I am in the middle of a dispute with a vendor over a payment (I am within the 30-day terms of payment)...
Recently, I received this email from them:
"Been trying to reach you , need to know when are you going to send payment , (we take credit cards also) before my boss takes you to the collections department or he send couple of guys to blow back all the leafs to your front yard."
My question is, can it be considered a "Threat against my property"?

Thank you. For them to be criminally
prosecuted they would have to damage your property. Simply blowing leaves back on it would not do this and the statement made was likely to show you that the money needs to be paid (because they think they are owed it) or else they will no longer do any works. I highly doubt they would come back and blow leaves back onto it and if they did you can try and record it but then file a civil suit for damages / costs incurred to remove its.

I do not think the statement would rise to a criminal level
