Hi tehmoor

It depends how serious the threat is, threats of death are against the law and punishable at worst case with imprisonment, these really are police matters and your friend should gather as much evidence for the police. Save page screen shots, messages etc for this.

Harassment, bullying etc I think is firstly dealt with through facebook. Here is a link which you may find interesting ans should tell you all you need to know.

Hi Smiley Happy

I'm sorry to hear you know someone in this stituwation.
Its very sad to hear my friend went through a simlar problem but did not tell anyone for ages.

If you report the persons facebook for harrasment and nasty messages then they will suggest that the friend blocks and removes the person from facebook

There are also many websites that can help with cyber bullying. (As this acures in all ages and not just in children ect)

If they are threating the person to the extinct were the person is very scared or are sending death threaths then I would suggest going to the police.
This may be scary to the person/friend you know going through the threats as they may think it will make it worse.

There are many ways off getting the problem sorted.
I suggest your friend tells someone in the early stages before things get worse (if this is the case)

Also tell them to unfriend and also report and then block the bully as this will help them not be in contact so the messages from the person should stop because noone can contact you after you have blocked them

Its important he/she does not delete any messages though. As everything is used in evidance even through reporting on facebook.

Hope I helped.
Thanks

Blackmail ? for what..? Im sorry to pry..but im trying to get a pic in my head to give you the best advice....

 

If its serious..yes its a police matter...if its not...I advise your friend just to tell the person to Feck off.......and WHY  hasnt your mate blocked him / her ? easy ......

I would advise the latter.... and ignore...

 

Tell him..Uncle Mark backing him...dont like bullys...

Would Facebook help track the other person down?
