I would have someone investigate it. If that means you have to press charges, I would. That’s ridiculous.

How did you know that ‘the IP’ was from his town? Where did you get that information from?

 

And yes, you can contact the police and he will be charged, if it is him.

Change ALL your passwords to something he will never guess. Add numbers to them so he’ll have a hard time figuing it out. You have to keep him out of your stuff!

And yes, talk to the police. If he did it then it is a criminal offense. I don’t think he’s hacked your computer, but he has managed to get into your ebay account by guessing your password. It’s still illegal, plus it’s harassment.

Even if it’s not him, it’s worth getting investigated in case it’s someone else messing about with identity fraud.

If you don’t want to involve police, just change all your passwords, change your IP address (your internet service provider can help you there) and get your husband to go kick his a**.

@ThePrincessMaggie:  I would.

I had an issue similar to this when I was in college and went to the campus police (as it was their jurisdiction technically) and got it all sorted out. It was scary. Plus, if it’s not him it’s someone else that is doing something they shouldn’t be.

On top of changing your passwords, answer those “security questions” with things that aren’t the real answers, that only you would remember. That way he can’t get your passwords via the “forgotten passwords” functions. I’m sorry this is happening to you– I hope you get it sorted ASAP!

@ThePrincessMaggie:  Clearly there is already “strife” in the family.  I wouldn’t give a crap about it.  As long as your Darling Husband is on the same page as you, I’d call the police.  Harrassment is not okay and this guy needs to get a grip!  He needs help!

He’s harrassing you.  Do you still have the text?  Keep records of all this stuff.  This family already sounds like a piece of work.  Your wellbeing is more important than worrying about people who aren’t worth it.

Why would you want poisonous people like that in your life? Seriously — if they’re going to choose him (a crazed stalker) over you, then who cares?!

Maybe that’s just me, though. But seriously, stalking can get seriously violent seriously fast. I’d report it to the police.
