Personal Harrasment?!

We got this through “Suggest a Story” recently, and just had to post it. The person chose to remain anonymous, but i thought i’d give it a try.

if someone receives a personal threat (in my case personal pictures) from someone through email. how should he get along with it? whom should he get in touch with? any idea? urgent please help me find it. i picks the ip address and figured it out its cybernet pakistan ..anyone who works in cyber net?

Dear Anonymous, contact the Citizen Police Liason Committee and tell them of the harrasment your receiving… they’ll look into it. In a lot of matters they’ll look into it and help out.

This leads me to ask another question… WHY!? What pleasure to people get in tormenting others? The whole deal makes me sick!

    I must tell you guys that this has happend to a friend of mine recently. The guy who did does not seem to be a professional but just a sick group of guys ‘enjoying’ their times.

    EXPLAINATION AS FOR THE IP MATTER: ‘Some one from cybernet’ is a very very enormous circle to look into. Take example of Fariya Networks (Gulshan) they have more than 1500 users, and fariya cable networks use cybernet. So each IP is of cybernet that is, more than 1500 user only on a sigle cable network. The IP’s that fariya might have purchased must be 2-5 (not more than that), so the IP you get of cybernet could be and possible individuals behind it, more than 1500!

    Each ISP has an abuse reporting system. As per the law they must keep the logs of the last 2 (two) months.

    One can contact the ISP (abouse reporting), tell them the problem and ask for the logs and/or the identity of the person. They are not likely to disclose the identity of their user (as they might get themselves sued, if they released the wrong ID or for anyother reason). You can then get the help of CPLC, log your complain there and then let them take over the charge of the situation.

    People can get cought very easily and yet they can also escape very easily. But one thing should be borne in mind that no matter the victim is a boy or a girl, its your responsibility to get your self your rights and protect them. I do agree that most of the ladies would prefer not to disclose these delicate matters to the public due to a lot of reasons, but my request is that you should ‘think over it by cool and calm mind’. Someone has to take some action and that is you.

    Victim: Your very welcome. We’re glad to have helped. Could you elaborate more on the response you got.. and also on the procedures. That would make this a very good resource if anyone else is having the same problem. Thanks

    Well you shouldn’t be surprised, as e-mails are now considered as a solid documentry proof of anything.

    According to a confrence on cyber crimes, it was reported that the cyber laws are in a process of reconsideration and alteration. In which the main point was that any promise or commitment done by any person to the other is condidered valid and can be kept as a lawful proof if required. (I heard this news form a reliable person, the guy who addressed in the confrence also had a website, I’ll try to find the link and post it again)

    So if a form on a website is not working, its a good sign that they asked you to send a written request. At least you will have that e-mail in your sent items and if for anycase the didn’t respond to that mail you can forward that mail again and again.. having the previous ones in loop, this way you will be on the stronger side.

    I hope you will get to know the exact person.
