Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: Hi there,
JA: Hello. How can I help?
Customer: there’s a woman who harass my husband and I on Facebook And instagram.. calling me names like prostitute and a home wrecker and things like that ... it’s been going on for years... this woman is very unstable, she sent emails to my place of work 3 years ago with all kinds of accusations
JA: What province are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: she applied for all kinds of credit cards under my name throughout these years to ruin my credit .. and now she’s sending msges to my husband and his friends and family and calling me a white and prostitute.. she’s trying to ruin my reputation.. I’m in Ontario
JA: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: 2.5 years ago after she sent an email to my boss and all my coworkers I went to the police, I printed everything and let them read it , she even threatened my life on that email.. but the cops didn’t do much , since I don’t have her last name or phone number.. I gave them her boyfriend’s name and number ( I used to know him, I broke up with him when I found out he’s going out with someone else and he was cheating on her) the cops contacted him and warned her
JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: they told me if she does it again, then they take action ...

Good day
I am sorry to hear about the difficulties you are going through.
You absolutely did the right thing in reporting it to the police and having her warned.
Now you should be reporting that it has continued.
The police will likely charge her with uttering threats and criminal harassment. She would then be placed on conditions not to contact you in any manner or she would go to jail.
Please let me know what other guidance you may require.

I need to go to the police again? They don't take it seriously
Customer
I just had a baby a week ago and she found out through Facebook, I'm still sore and exhausted from the delivery
Customer
How long do think I have to report this again? I don't want to be too late
Customer
She's sending horrible msges to my husband's friends and family and calling me a terrorist ( I'm Persian) and prostitute and such

You should report it as soon as you are able. Given what she is saying, this makes it a hate crime as this is a crime based upon race.
The police will take this seriously, particularly in the present climate where police are under the microscope.
