What to do if I’m being harassed/stalked online but I don’t know if I have admissible proof?

My ex-boyfriend has hacked into several of my e-mail accounts and my Facebook and changed the passwords. He also owes me money from a trip we had both went on and agreed on splitting the cost. I would like to press charges but I don’t know how to go about it?

If your "Facebook" account has been compromised by some third party, you need to report the incident to a "Facebook" representative and ask for an investigation over what transpired in a hope that you will be provided with the e mail address of the person or persons who improperly accessed your account.

If this happens and you are able to receive the e mail address of the invidual or individuals that accessed your account, then you have the information needed to make a formal complaint with law enforcement over what you have written about.
