I’ll try to keep this short. I am involved in a defamation civil lawsuit. I did not author the posts, but the plaintiff believes I did and seems to be doing everything in their power to make it seem like I did.
Every time there is an event in the case in my favor, I get some sort of notification – reset request for a social media account, a verification code for various dating apps, etc. I only began receiving these when the case began. Perhaps trying to dig up dirt on me, but unable to.
Yesterday was a case event and this time, a masked phone number texted them in the middle of the night threatening to post embarrassing photos/videos of him/her being cheated on by their spouse. Again, NOT me or anyone I know. Something is very suspicious about this and I’m afraid of being set-up on their end. They do know my address and IP address. They do not know the new WIFI password. Maybe this is someone legitimate, but the timing is highly suspicious which makes me think there is foul play on their end.
So my question is, could they set me up? I mean, could they have set-up a fake number and made it look like it came from my Wifi? Or really me in any way? I wouldn’t be surprised if they hired a hacker (they are these types of people). If someone on my network accidently clicked a suspicious link, could they get in? Is there a way for me to tell? I want to be ready for the worst when the subpoena comes back.
Thanks in advance for any help!!
