I received an odd piece of mail yesterday, at work. Fan mail it is not. It was typed and arrived with no return address. I also suspect the name is fake, which is funny considering the content. Here it is with names omitted/altered:
Hey (my last name) the scumbag–
Lets see you kick around people by name in the city, county and at UM–and you hide behind a surname–what a fucking coward—the gloves come off now for you–you chickenshit.
We intend to write to the (my employer) and send them all your previous posts for their review
I think the name is fake because the police officer I talked to couldn’t find it in their database.
Yes, I talked to an officer. This attempt to negatively impact my employment is not just a threat to me, but to my family, and I don’t take that kind of thing lightly.
I don’t have any clue who sent this, or what specific post or general topic inspired this little outburst. But I am taking precautions, and documenting this with law enforcement is just the first step.
