Blackmail is a crime. You can report this person to your local police and have them arrested. If this blackmail is taking place through the internet then you may report the blackmailer to the FBI online at www.IC3.gov which is their internet crime complaint center.

You can also sue the blackmailer in Small Claims court for "Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress", based on blackmail. Small Claims is very easy to manage, you don't need an attorney, and you can get the forms and instructions at the court. You can ask for "Pain and Suffering" in any amount up to the maximum small claim amount in your location.

I hope this information is helpful to you and I sincerely ***** ***** all the best with this situation.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
