Well, low and behold, I got another message yesterday from OW from another fake account. This one again with a copy of a text from a similar weird number. The user name this time is part of one of his secret accounts that he has since closed but she would know it. The message is again very basic but really doesn't sound like something he would say. At the time it says it was sent, WH was in bed and I am almost positive that he was sleeping but I cannot be sure. This time she says in her message that I deserve more and then asks if he is out of town as that is when he broke NC previously.
Then she adds on to the message, "If his actions don't bother you anymore then I will leave you alone. I just thought you might want to know. Sorry. Please advise."
UMMMM, I blocked your other 2 FB accounts, dipshit! What do you think? I have considered having a lawyer send a letter to OW but I really cannot afford to spend the money. Should I send a message to her saying to stop contacting me? I have never sent one stating that yet. I have always just ignored but maybe I should send one stating that in case I do end up needing a lawyer. It will be hard to keep from telling her exactly what I think of her in the message. Perhaps I should send her a message back with a copy of the photo she sent my WH of her chest and bra and copy it to her parents. Would she get the hint then?
I have not told WH about this message, yet. I checked his phone but could not find any evidence.
That is now 3 messages in the last 3 months each one almost exactly one month apart. I only noticed this because the first one occurred near my birthday (almost exactly one month since most recent NC) and WH pointed out that the second one was almost exactly one month later.
I don't need CRAZY in my life.
NC is usually the way to go here, but I might just ping back a blurb saying that she is never to contact you again and your lawyer is drafting a restraining order should she do so. Then crickets. I'm so sorry you have to deal with this crap. Hopefully the threat of litigation wakes her up.
Nothing says "Back off, bitch!" quite like a law firm's letterhead.
That is now 3 messages in the last 3 months each one almost exactly one month apart.
Hmmm...me womanly parts thinks her womanly parts are in full force around these times.

DS - 31 - Yikes!
I would love to have a lawyer send a letter but may have to just go with a short, firm "Do not contact me again" message for now.
ajsmom - I'm not sure why I didn't think of that!
After 18 months of silence I received an Fb message from the BBC mid Sept...and now I'm spinning again.
I agree with AJ's mum, you could send a NC letter from a lawyer but we have found that it doesn't necessarily work
BUT the INSTANT you receive ANYTHING in the post, go straight to lawyer and/or police. They can't do anything (not threatening life etc) but at least it's logged.
The things I want to say to that 'woman' are unprintable but I can't; I have to just send crickets...and I do...have done for years. But still she tries.
I now know that she is more broken than the rest of us put together.
You are better than her in a myriad of ways and remember:
There's no point in arguing with an idiot, they'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience! ;o)
PS. Spending today wishing Fb would spontaneously erase the accounts of all cheaters, forever x
I tell people I am tired but really my heart is broken and I am sad.
After the first butt dialing incident, I called her back and told her that we were ready to press charges if her number ever appeared on our caller id at work, home or cell phone numbers or if she attempted to contact and of our children..(she knows them through summer employment.)
She then switched to blocked calls and spoof calling. It was truly disgusting how often she was calling our home number using my old cell phone number. We did consult a lawyer, but ultimately decided the best thing to do was NOTHING! Not to let her know she was bothering us at all. She is dead to both of us...the best revenge is living well.
Fast forward to last Friday night...two unknown calls in the car on my husbands cell phone. Came through on the blue tooth and I answered..... We both burst out laughing at her. Wouldn't ya know, later that night I had a spoof call on my cell phone.
We both decided that was going to be our response...to just laugh!

But there is also an entire other planet populated by OWs who put the loony in loony bin. Bunny boiler (although symbolic and visually compelling) does not begin to cover all the evil things these women are capable of doing. I cannot understand how they can hold down a job.
Maybe you can reply that you know at the time the message was sent, he was in bed...but not asleep.
Perhaps it came from another of her paramours. Given the circumstances you don't want contact again.
I know, I know, don't feed the bear.
There are SO many ways for people to secretly contact each other nowadays - just the multitude of apps on cell phones ALONE boggles the mind. I keep reading about texting apps that people are using on their phones now which allow you to text like normal except it's NOT going through your billing account as a normal text so there's no history of the exchanges on your cell phone bills. There are chat apps now which don't get put on your bill, and some other app that sends pictures that self destruct after so many seconds.
As much as I hate to say it ChangedForLife, finding nothing on his cell phone or finding nothing in your detailed phone billing is unfortunately no longer a guarantee that that he's not contacting her.
I just want to be sure that you've considered this very real possibility before you automatically assume the OW is just a bunny boiler or is merely trying to 'cause trouble' and making things up.
I'm a firm believer in 'trust, but VERIFY.'
Good luck to you.
Truly- (((Hugs)))back to you as well! Sorry that your are still dealing with contact from the OW. They have no shame! I have that same quote pinned to my Pinterest board. And the funny thing is I know OW has been checking out my Pinterest account because she accidentally followed one of my boards. I hope she saw that pin!
Jrazz- I totally get your meaning.
Crestfallen- I love your response to her call!
Headdesk- I have been keeping a record just in case.
LeopoldB- I agree! After reading some of the things other OWs have done, I guess I should be thankful I don't have to deal with all that.
Emotionalgirl- That's a great idea!
Holly-Isis- I actually agree. She is a pathetic person but not to the bunny boiler level that I have read of some other OWs on here. Luckily, OW lives on the other side of the country which maybe helps. BTW, I love your idea on the timing!
NeverAgain2013- I appreciate your honesty. I know the availability of secret texting apps is rampant and that just because I couldn't find any evidence does not mean that he didn't do it. Especially with WHs many broken NCs, I am very wary and still verifying what I can.
My main issue with OW contacting me is that I cannot trust OW either. When she first contacted me, she blamed me for the affair and the breakup of her marriage. Her next message was bitter about my WH and I still being together. Now this one she is trying to sound like she is my friend and that I "deserve more". UGH! I have no words. (Actually I have a lot of words for OW)
So, I really do appreciate you taking the time and being honest. And it has all crossed my mind as well. I have few illusions left.
