Police find difficulties investigating Internet harassment - 0 views

  • A local woman believes her story illustrates just how frustrating it can sometimes be fighting Internet harassment.

      Tina Austin claims someone harassed her by posting information on the popular trading website, craigslist.org, last February.

      The postings gave Austin’s name and work cell phone number.

      The three separate postings claimed Austin was giving away a diamond necklace, a Chevy Suburban, and another which was, let’s just say an “R” rated request.

      “I ended up getting [the most phone calls for the diamond necklace],“ Austin said Wednesday.  “[I didn’t get] quite as much for the Suburban.“
