Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 17, 2011
Attorney Kenneth Eade, who has filed a lawsuit against Investorshub.com and alias posters using false names, in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, Case No. 11-01315 PA, has appealed to the public to unmask the alias posters named as Doe Defendants in the suit, and has gone as far as to offer a $100 reward for any information leading to their identity and prosecution. "We have identified some of the Does already," said Eade. "But what is extremely troubling is that several of them have not only continued to defame me, but their harassing behavior has risen to the level of "Cyber Stalking," he said.
Cyber Stalking is illegal in several states where the Does live, including Florida and California. Under Title 47 of the U.S. Code, section 223, it is illegal for a person who utilizes any device or software that can be used to originate telecommunications or other types of communications that are transmitted, in whole or in part, by the Internet... without disclosing his identity and with intent to annoy, abuse, threaten, or harass any person...who receives the communications. Violation of the law subjects the annonymous stalker to fines and imprisonment. Cyberstalkers are often driven by revenge, hate, anger, jealousy, obsession and mental illness. While a cyberharasser may be motivated by some of these same feelings, often the harassment is driven by the desire to frighten or embarrass the harassment victim.
"I intend to bring each and every one of these wrongdoers to justice," said Eade. "That is why any information I receive which leads to their identification and prosecution will be rewarded," he added. Mr. Eade also expressed thanks for the many emails and phone calls he has received expressing support and asking to help. "I still have not had time to answer all of them, but I have made it a point to do so," said Eade. "Cyber Stalking is a big problem on the Internet and we all have to stick together to see that it is stopped."
