My husband’s ex wife is communicating very verbally abusive language about me and exhibiting behavior that warrants concern. She is demanding to meet me “to look me in the eye”. She has a history of violence and does not know how to not verbally berate either my husband or me via the phone or email.

This weekend, she found my website for singing and wrote me an email under an assumed name with the pretense of wanting to know where I was performing next and how much my rates for performing were…that she was opening up a coffee shop and needed entertainment. The name is a false name. She obviously did not realize that her name would appear in the address just before her yahoo address.

As far as my husband is concerned, she has wished him dead several times via email and has threatened to call his work and “tell on him” as well as call me and “tell on him”…

I wonder what recourse if any I have to take in order to prevent this persons borderline personality disorder from taking more drastic steps. I have tried to remain very distant in order to protect the children involved, but she is getting more desperate.
