How to Report Harassing Text Messages to the Police

I am a child model who has experience being on television and music videos.

getting-harassing-text-messages-how-to-report-them-to-police

"Harassment" is legally defined as repeated, unwanted contact. This contact can come in any form, from in-person contact to internet or phone communications. Harassment via text message is yet another form that can be very brutal, emotional and scary for the individual being harassed.

Harassment does not have to be threatening to be "harassing."

It can take the form of abusive messages or text message "spam." Regardless of the situation, it is not legal nor justified and you have the right to take action.

Here are the specific steps to take in order to report a case of text harassment.

1. Save the Harassment Data

Depending on your phone, you may be able to take a "screenshot" of the data. If your phone is not capable of doing so, you can use a camera to take photos.

You will also want to "Lock" or "Protect" each harassing message. But you still must be sure to have backup copies in the event that something happens to your phone so your data is not lost.

2. Get Your Cell Phone Records

You should be able to login to your account and download your cell phone records. If you do not know how to access them, call your phone provider or Google Search "How to Get Phone Records for (Your Make/Model of Phone)." Be sure to save and also print the records that coincide with the harassment you are experiencing.

I suggest taking a highlighter and highlighting the exact lines on the records that show the harassment.

3. Compile All Evidence

The most important step (besides having all of your evidence) is to organize it in a fashion that makes it easy for police to navigate through. File folders might help.

Lay out all of your data by "type." For example, one folder will be your photo evidence, a second folder will be your print-outs of your cell phone records, a third folder can consist of the proof of all the efforts you have made to stop the harassment; such as evidence via screenshot of you telling the offender to "stop harassing me" as well as any other efforts you have taken.

Another folder can consist of any "history" you have had with the harasser. For example, if the harasser is a former friend or date; compiling evidence of the relationship-gone-bad and your decision to end the relationship is of great use to police. Any email correspondence, Facebook messages or other evidence you have that shows what led up to the harassment is very important.

You can opt to have as many folders as needed to provide police with all evidence in regard to your complaint. Be as thorough as possible. If the individual who is harassing you is also harassing others, it is imperative to gather evidence that links it all together.

"Harassment" is legally defined as repeated, unwanted contact. Harassment does not have to be threatening to be "harassing."

4. Make an Index

The index above is an example of what is used in court to provide evidence. As you can see, it is laid out very clearly and easy to read. Label each of your folders to match the contents within and create an index similar to the one above that allows the detectives to go directly to the folder they need without digging through mounds of paper.

TIP: If you need to make "notes," write them onto a quarter-page size piece of paper and then staple the paper to the evidence that requires the note. An example of an important "note" would be: "On this page you will see where Mr. Doe began the harassment. In Folder #3 you will see that this is the same date that I ended my relationship with Mr. Doe."

I like to tab my folders so they are mega-simple to go through.

5. Make a Matching Copy for Yourself

It is mandatory (in my opinion) that you make an identical copy of what you are providing to police for yourself. You may not be able to get the files you turn over to law enforcement back for a very long time (if at all), depending on how far your case goes.

In the event that police need to speak to you about evidence, it is a breeze to pull out your matching copy and refer to "Folder #6, page #4, paragraph #2" and so on.

6. Include Your Contact Information

Make sure you include your contact information on the very front of your binder or folder that contains your evidence. Do not limit your contact information to just your name and phone number. Include your address, email and an alternate contact phone number.

If you have information about your harasser (name, nick-names, aliases, email, address, etc), make this its own folder. Do not include this on the main page, as you do not want your evidence accidentally returned to your harasser instead of you.

7. Go to the Police

If you know where your harasser resides, you will need to go to law enforcement in their area, not yours, even if they live in the next city over.

When you enter the police station, ask to speak to a detective. Most likely you will need to explain your case briefly to the person working the front desk area. When providing your explanation keep it short and simple.

Speak clearly and without emotion. Stating things like "John Doe is a basket-case and psychopath who needs to be locked up!" is not effective and will not get you help any faster (even if John Doe is indeed a basket-case psycho who really does need to be locked up).

Instead, use keywords that explain your issue, such as "John Doe began severely harassing me through text messages on (date). I have asked him to cease numerous times. The harassment has became worse and I am now fearful for my safety as well as my family's safety. I have brought all of the corresponding evidence of John's harassment with me."

If you are unable to speak to a detective, be sure to get a business card for both the officer and detective. If business cards are not available, record the officer's name and the detective's name as well as the detective's phone number.

Providing the harassment doesn't get "worse" (meaning John Doe doesn't make a threat like "I am going to kill you tonight"), wait a few days then follow up directly with the detective.

An Important Issue About Cyber Crime

Unfortunately, many cities and/or states are still learning how to address cyber bullying, internet harassment, SMS / text harassment, and so on. The reason for this is because before the internet become a tool to harass and threaten, police were given "jurisdictions" and each law enforcement agency operated within their jurisdiction.

When a "crime" occurs on the internet, many law enforcement officials do not know how specifically to deal with the issue since the crime occurred online. "Cyberspace" is not in a specific jurisdiction.

Leen hafez on August 13, 2020:

Me and my daughter are constantly getting harrassmrnt messages since last year each momth at least a few times a week and sometimes it stops for a while and comes back . Whats scaring me is we didnt give our number to anyone except family member and two of our friends and one of them who is not considered a friend anymore because of her racism when she found out we were muslims and tried to force her son to harrass my daughter in a way verbally. After a few days of ending that friendship i started getting sexual harassment messages from different anonymous numbers such as “ i would get people to hurt you” but the way they were saying it felt like they were indirectly mention to rape my mom in several ways . The second message would say “ you never stopped being a whore “

“Good morningg slut , bet you had your ass fucked today. Are you still getting those men to fuck you or are you getting your friends over? Haha whore”

“I know you went to the police about me , dont act like you didnt send messages either , you whore you really dont seem like youve learnt your lesson bitch”

In fact we have never replied to the messages we constantly and repeatedly block each number but another anonymous number would pop up and send another irritating message . How can i stop this by law? Or track them? Help

Me because the police never helped me stop this.

My number is ‪+1 (613) 276‑7844‬

I am being harrassed by text messages and entering my apartment and damaging my personal property.. Especially with threats by no languGe communication.

KRISTEN on June 03, 2020:

My boyfriend quite a job and went to another job, same field and now the old boss is texting untrue statements about my boyfriend to the new boss. Threatening to put stuff on the internet as well as the new company's name. He thinks that my boyfriend called some code enforcement on him, which he absolutely did not!! He is claiming my boyfriend assaulted another employee (not true), stole hand tools (not true) and that he was fired (also not true, he quit). The new boss is reassuring my boyfriend that he has nothing to worry about but mu boyfriend is worried. He worked for this guy for almost 2 years, was the "property manager/supervisor". If he did all of those things, wouldn't you think he would have been fired. After he quit roommate/employee called mu boyfriend asking him he could take over one of their accounts. That they didn't have time to do it. We have screen shots of all text messages and call logs. We also have a voice message that says "retaliation is a b**** mother f***er". What can we do? This guy has not stopped texting the new boss for a week now, plus trying to call him on the phone. The new boss has not responded nor answered any of the calls. We are afraid of what this guy might do, he knows where we live and some of these text messages are coming through in the middle of the night. This man is clearly unstable. We are AFRAIDI!!!

Tamabam on May 28, 2020:

I have an ex, that gets itchy fingers, every time he gets really drunk, considering he drinks almost every night, it's a lot! Then he starts texting, sometimes calling me & if I answer my phone, he's nice at first, usually apologizing for his last texts, from mo's ago, then when I don't give him the attention he's obviously seeking, that's when he turns into a 50yr old drunken child & starts w/ the nasty messages agn, & calling me names, to make himself feel better, mainly because I don't want to be his gf ever agn, or that good of friends, but due to our history, I've tried to be somewhat forgiving, or nice to an extent, hoping he'll stop or move on, it's usually after mo's of cooling down for me, from the previous nasty name calling incident, that usually includes calling me a f*cking b*tch, or sl*t, w/ no reason for it at all, I mean geez, I haven't had a sexual relationship w/ anyone in almost 8yrs, due to the fact, I've been battling st4 Non Hodgkins Lymphoma, for yrs now, & I feel like crap 90% of the time, I don't have the energy for any of that type of relationship & haven't for a long time! You'd think anyone w/ half a brain or heart, that had any consideration for someones feelings, that's been going through the worst time in my life, mentally/emotionally & physically(but, continously claims to still love you, after over 30yrs of knowing each other, you would think he'd have a morsal of compassion, or maturity to stop, when someone tells you, to stop!), because it sure isn't me, doing the calling or texting him, ever, it's him, doing the drunk texting, usually at night, when I'm tired & wanting to sleep, then he gets me so mad & upset, I can't even sleep, which makes for a horrible day, after! No one should have to deal w/ this crap & I'd block him, but I don't have # blocking on my phone. I hate the thought of having to change my #, everyone knows what a pain that is! I've had the same # for 15+ yrs & it's such a royal pain to do, plus, I'd have to pay to change it! Due to my cancer, I'm on disability now, which isn't much money! I barely get by, mo. to mo., not to mention, I'd feel so stupid having to go to the police, all due to this persons childish behavior! I mean, what is wrong w/ some people, that act like they can do whatever they want to people, I know HS students, that are more mature, & of course the alcohol makes it worse, giving him trigger fingers! I finally flipped my lid today, after not hearing anything for mo's, then the text start rolling in, calling me nasty names, because I don't want to talk to him, let alone be around that POS! I can't believe I actually spent almost 5yrs w/ this person, back in my late teens, early 20's, thank God, I grew up, started to value my self worth, dated other guys that treated me how a gf should be treated! I don't know how the police will react, if I go in w/ all the text i've saved for yrs, to file a complaint for telephone harassment? I feel like I'm wasting their time, over something so stupid, but I don't know of any other way to get it to stop for good, even when I've had my # changed in the past, he's somehow managed to get my new # in time! I'd have to call almost all my friends, that know him or who he may call & tell them, do not give my phone # to him, or anyone, really! Plus, his daughter works in the same office as the water dept. which I'd have to give my new # too, in case I had a leak, so she can easily get my new # off the computer & no one would ever know, nor could I prove she did it! This whole situation is stupid, all because some people can't act like adults, or don't want to get help for their drinking issues, which is the main cause, for 90% of these calls! Has anyone else ever had to deal w/ a simular situation? Did you go to the police? Were they helpful, or were you made to feel like you were just wasting there time & to just change your phone #? I guess that's my main worry, being made to feel stupid, for telephone harassment. I guess I don't feel like they'd care that much, because he's not threatening my life or saying he or someone else is going to cause me some type of harm, but when you've dealt w/ it for so long, it does start to cause you emotional & mental harm! I know it's just words & there's no truth to 99% of it, but a person can only take so much, before you're ready to blow! I've honestly thought of doing things, to make him stop, I know I shouldn't, just to avoid involving the police, but I'm too afraid of getting into trouble & me ending up in jail/court instead of him, for having one of my longtime guy friends, pay him a visit(believe me, I wouldn't even have to try that hard, so many people would now love to wipe the floor w/ his a$$, & he'd never contact me agn! I'm not the only one he's treated w/ such disrespect over the yrs), & let him know whats up, he's such a lil pussy, he'd prob. piss his pants if they even swung at him? He's a lil mama's bitch boy still, w/ a big mouth & all talk.. Hell, I could prob. whoop him! Lol.. I know better though, & I'd never do anything that might end up, w/ me in trouble or jail, instead of him, it's just fufilling at times to think about, esp. when I'm really upset!

Sorry for the novel, but damn I've def. hit my breaking point & have had enough of the BS!

Kiki Maguire on May 21, 2020:

Why would anyone go through all this? Have you people never heard of blocking??

Ray on May 18, 2020:

This number called me twice, i don’t answer because I thought it was a scam. The guy texts me saying he’s got all my info and will murder me and my family if I don’t give him 300$. He said his name is Victor Carrillo. There’s also multiple other reports I found online about this guy threatening people. Not sure what to do but i blocked him. fuck it Would be nice to feel like this guy doesn’t have a hit man on me but it’s likely some guy who actually doesn’t know shit about me. Idk.

roger smith on July 22, 2019:

Michael Huke a senior manager at Lloyds Bank HQ Bristol, a record of his nefarious activities, each reported to Lloyds Bank and Avon and Somerset police where applicable, NO action has been taken by either party.

Please view ‘Michael Huke’ on YouTube and witness his disgraceful conduct.

1. CCTV of Michael Huke shouting abuse and videoing his neighbours within their premises.

2. Assaulting neighbours physically and verbally, captured on CCTV and audio.

3. Offensive and unlawful TEXTs sent by Michael Huke……..

a) TEXT ‘My secretary gives me a blow job when I’m allocating bonuses

b) TEXT ‘Kompany and Fernandinho (Manchester City footballers) are Northern black c*nts’.

c) TEXT ‘Antonio Horta Osario (Lloyds Bank CEO) has no balls because he was off sick at the priory for 6 months’ suffering from a nervous breakdown.

d) TEXT claiming ‘He would wind up 2 neighbours (he was hostile towards) so much, he would let them Twat him and get them done’. Plus more TEXTs of a similar grossly offensive nature.

4. When asked by friends the wealth of a landlord neighbour (that he was in conflict with), he answered ‘neither the landlord or his wife bank with Lloyds Banking Group and never have had accounts with us’. Within his ‘position of trust’ how did he determine that information, had they banked with Lloyds he would surely have probed their accounts?

5. He was prosecuted, when caught on covert CCTV, watching his dog defecate outside a neighbour’s property and not clear it up.

6. He signed an ABC (Acceptable Behaviour Contract) issued to him by South Gloucestershire Council ASBO team.

7. Attacked a 71 year old man because he’d parked briefly on the road outside his house; captured on CCTV, video/audio recorded and independently witnessed (view on YouTube).

8. The 71 year old victim of the attack and one of the witness’s (who’d videoed the attack) were arrested and held in custody (several months after the video of the attack had been uploaded onto YouTube, (by persons unknown), charged with uploading the video, (which was factual and not menacing in character) as it discredited Michael Huke in front of his staff and jeopardised his job at Lloyds Bank HQ Bristol. No charge was pursued. This arrest was almost certainly influenced by Lloyds Banking Group, Freemasons, a police sergeant friend who lives nearby or corrupt members of Avon and Somerset Police, possibly a combination of them all.

Since the above he works from home one or two days each week spending time at the sports centre and maintaining his property and garden!

These incidents plus many more have taken place over a 3 year period; all reported to Lloyds Banking Group, yet Michael Huke is still an employee of Lloyds Bank?

You’re views, opinions, advice would be greatly appreciated.

She wouldn’t and said that I contacted her first, and I was being rude which is a lie! I wish people would stop being so rude! If you call the wrong number, simply apologize and don’t do it again! It’s that simple!

Teresa on October 09, 2018:

Taki, I read your message and it broke my heart that you feel your parents to know you are gay, it's hard to tell them - I am a parent of a gay son and I am certain he may have feared the same. My guess is if you ignore him, eventually he will just go away and stop contacting you. It's doubtful that he would go to his friends at the police department it is just a scare tactic. If would he continues to call, ask your parents to have your cell phone number changed. You can be vague about why you requesting a new number if you are ot ready for that conversation with your parents. You have a right to change your mind about your feelings so never feel bad about that. Hope you find the courage to eventually talk to your parents, I bet they will be more understanding than you think. Best of Luck!

taki on October 07, 2018:

i was texting to this guy because he seemed nice. i was sorta interested and said later i just want to be friends to see how it goes. he replies so many times "Can't wait for you to be with us". so i tried making a lie to get out of it. till later on i told the truth that it just wasn't gonna work because i got freaked out. Then he says he has friends in the police department place. that he filed report of harassment and that i will be contacted and stuff...and that freaked me out because i don't want my parents to know i am gay. and he says sorry whats done is done and there is nothing he can do. I told him sorry that he is crazy but it was not his right to get me out like that. and now im freaking out. i dont want to go to jail, nor do i want my parents to know that i am gay. They will kick me out of the house and have nothing to do with me. and i really don't know what to do. we were traveling through the town and he lives somewhere else. was on Grindr. i regret giving him my number. please if anyone knows what to do tell me...do you think the police will really get me? over something stupid just because i changed my mind? he says it cause i spammed him and changed story when all i was doing was freaking out and wanted nothing. he had 2 phones and i didn't know what to do. blocking didn't seem like the way because he messaged me right away with the second phone. and that just freaked me out even more. i told him bye and leave me alone and he responds no way not till you tell me why. and i would tell him... but nothing was good enough. so now i just dont know what to do! im freaking out n my heart is racing and im scared.
