Is it legal for my ex to blackmail me? 1 Answers as of June 08, 2011I'm being harassed and black mailed by my ex boyfriend. I have all the texts saved. He keeps threatening to put stuff on the internet about me if I don't get back together with him. I told him I will get a restraining order and that made him more upset and greater threatened to post stuff on the internet. He shows up to my house and follows me around town. Is this blackmailing legal?

No! You were correct to tell him you would get a restraining order. Now go do it. Do not tell him again, do not warn him, do not speak to him. Run, do not walk, to the County Attorney or District Attorney's office, press charges for stalking and harassment and get a restraining order or protective order ASAP.
