    Someone hacked my e-mail address and sent some e-mails to my old boss apparently telling him I was raped and was dead or something like that. I knew my account had been hacked, but I had NO idea e-mails like that were going out. This morning, my Mother receives a letter from my old boss about me being dead and what not. In the letter, which I haven't read, I guess he goes on to say he is quite upset and thought it was someone playing games with him. So, just finding out about all this, I call my old boss to tell him I am indeed alive and well and explain to him about my e-mail being hacked and instead of being understanding and relieved, he is angry at me and threatens to call the cops. I told him I just wanted to know more information about what was said in the e-mails and such but he just kept yelling at me and telling me he is going to the cops. I don't exactly understand WHY he'd go to the cops. If anyone should be, it should be me. I deleted all my old accounts and started new ones, so I think as far as hacking goes, I'm okay. I hope if the police get involved they can at least find out who's been hacking my e-mail. My old boss seems to think this whole thing is my fault and I should go to jail for it.

    your boss probably thinks you played a prank on him.
    and he is angry for being the scapegoat.

    Right, but I didn't do anything wrong, right? Can I get arrested if someone sent out an e-mail from my address saying I was raped or dead? It's a really dumb thing to do, and I would never do it, even as a joke. The only crime, that I know of, that has been committed was my e-mail being hacked. I'm sorry... I'm just freaking out. Why the hell would he go to the police?

    Tell him get off his high horse and listen to you before flipping out like a retarded drugged fish. If he calls the cops good for him, make sure they leave with a false alarm fee from his retarded ass. If you knew your e-mail account was compromised you should have immediately took the steps to close it down or have it redeemed, it seems like you didn't.

    LoL Good point, and I will if he actually did go to the police like he said he did.

    He really is a total psycho. He's one of those guys who thinks he's been abducted by aliens and can walk through a crowd and point to random people and tell me who is an alien ( from outer space, not an illegal one :) ) and who isn't. I'm sure if the police interview him, they will see that he's a little off the rocker and won't continue with the investigation.

    Your boss is totally retarded. He must be old right? Most old people fly off the handle like that when they don't understand shit.

    Yeah, he's a geezer. I can't wait till I'm 60 so I can totally freak out on people for no real reason.

    Your old boss needs to get a grip. I know you didn't, but EVEN IF you DID send those messages. What could he call the cops for?

    That's just stupid. It's a prank (by the hacker), and your old boss is going over board.

    Get the IP from the headers of the emails sent out, it will be different from your own. I had someone hack my email years ago and send stupid shit out to an old girlfriend. I told her to send me the ip in the headers and of course it was different from my own so that cleared that up.

    Right. I thought about it like that... "IF I wrote those e-mails, would I be going to jail for?" Except for the hacking, I am thinking no crime took place and I'm not going to pursue charges for a stupid e-mail hacking. It still freaks me out though.

    Police around here are really lame anyway. One time my wallet got stolen along with my social security number and credit cards and I had proof this particular person did it and the cops didn't do shit so I am pretty sure they are going to just laugh in his face.

    Venting my frustration and fear here has been helpful. :)

    Even if you did write those emails yourself, I see no criminal charges. A civil case at BEST, if he can prove distress/damage caused by the emails. Chill. Tell your boss to chill.

    Sucks to hear that, but no I don't think there's any way you can get into trouble. And WTF @ your boss. Seriously.

    P.S. yay for WI blackhatters :D

    that's why i don't work for other people... :D

    at my old job someone called the boss and told
    him i wouldn't be in that day. so he had to stick
    around to make sure that someone came in to
    do that shift.

    when i got in he was surprised and asked me if i
    had a girlfriend who called in for me. i told him i
    knew nothing about it. weird...
