Got Death Threats

Recommended Posts

Faux Nominal

At around 11:00 PST, I killed a player named Shweddyteddy and he got incredibly angry. He was spamming the chat with swearing and vivid threats-telling me that he was going to ban me, then he said he was going to come to my location and that I “shouldn’t sleep tonight.” He continued threatening me in various other ways and eventually wrote an IP address In the chat. I am unsure if it was actually mine or not. He kicked me out of the session before I could report him and I don’t know how to do so outside of the session. Then, after I left, I received a strange text on my phone from an email instead of a phone number. It was just a link. I didn’t open the link or respond to the text. I’m wondering if there is a way to report Shweddyteddy that I’m unaware of or if I could get feedback of any other kind?

Nah, the text you received was almost certainly an unrelated spam/phishing text.

 

He's just an idiot hiding behind his controller, if I took all the threats I got from killing people's GTA characters seriously I'd be in some sort of witness protection programme by now and my mother would have a c*nt like a bucket from being raped so many times.

 

My best advice, put these people on your "friends" lists so you can find them again in the future by using the "join a session with friends" when you're bored and wind them up some more.

Yeah, I still have to ask my mother why she's been cheating on my dad with a few dozen 10 year old kids.

Unfortunately, this is the world we live in.  Best thing to do, just ignore it and don't give it a second thought.

Your best option would be to report the gamer tag to whichever platform you are playing on, odds are he/she/it has done this to other players and other people have reported him/her/it also so it will build a case against them for removal

If these types of threats worry you then play on your own or find friends to help you soften the blow, as well as restricting freemode voice chat to friends and crew, and if someone sends you an abusive message, delete it and block them. Due to the way GTA online encourages griefing, bullying and coward-like behavior, I'd say around 75% of people are nasty, in comparison to real life where it's the other way around.

Well considering that he said that the other guy spammed something in the chat I would guess that he is on PC. And on PC there is nobody you can report him to. Social club has no option to report someone for harassing and steam, well if he is there he probably has a diffrent name there so you cant find him.

Since you most likely on PC there is a chance that the person threatening you has a mod menu and can unfortunately track your IP address if the mod menu can do it. Best to report that user to the police if you feel your life is endanger.

You can report it to police if you honestly feel threatened, if you are in the United States; 

-"Cyberbullying is the transmission of any electronic textual, visual, written, or oral communication with the malicious and willful intent to coerce, abuse, torment, or intimidate a person under the age of eighteen." - LRS Criminal Law State of Louisiana (Each state is different but the wording is similar).  

 

-"Federal Stalking and Harassment Laws: When harassing or stalking behavior involves the Internet, U.S. mail, or activities that cross state lines, the crime may be charged as a Federal Offence." https://www.criminaldefenselawyer.com/resources/federal-stalking-and-harassment-laws.htm

 

-"The crime of harassment (which can include stalking, hate crimes, and cyberbullying) occurs when one person acts in a way designed to annoy, provoke, threaten, or otherwise cause another person emotional distress. State laws and some federal laws identify multiple ways in which harassment can be committed." https://www.criminaldefenselawyer.com/crime-penalties/federal/Harassment.htm

 

-"criminal harassment entails intentionally targeting someone else with behavior that is meant to alarm, annoy, torment or terrorize them. Not all petty annoyances constitute harassment. Instead, most state laws require that the behavior cause a credible threat to the person's safety or their family's safety." https://criminal.findlaw.com/criminal-charges/harassment.html

 

 

Open a support ticket with Rockstar and just tell them what happened and ask what should you do to have action taken.

A nightly session is never complete until a wannabe gangster tells you that he is going to pull up to your house and kill your family. 

 

Just tell him to come over, these dishes are not going to wash themselves!

The federal system in the US is more strict than you would think on online harassment.. The FBI, US Marshals, Secret Service, DoJ, US Attorneys Office, and every State Police have a unit for online stalking, harassment, and cyberbullying. I've charged a person for online harassment for less than death threats.

 

"In general, every crime involves three elements: first, the act or conduct (“actus reus”); second, the individual’s mental state at the time of the act (“mens rea”); and third, the causation between the act and the effect (typically either "proximate causation" or "but-for causation")."

The 'actus reus' is the initial unwanted contact the offender had with Faux Nominal, the 'mens rea' is the threatening language to intimidate Faux Nominal, and the causation is Faux Nominal being concerned over his safety. 

 

These are the Facts which determines a crime has been committed against Faux Nominal and if presented to any law enforcement agency should take criminal complaint to file charges. 

Anyhow, if you are getting death threats on GTA, you are playing the game right lol

People take "death threats" from random people in this game seriously? 

 

I've gotten them playing crapersary modes. One of them from a pair of punk kids from "the West side of Chicago" is still a running joke between me and the PlayStation friend I was playing with that day.

Another one of these threads? I remember one from a month or two ago where someone intruded a private session and talked sh*t about someone's dead dog. But yeah, some people who play this game are psychologically disturbed.

 

I hate to be that guy, but:

 

I've had my fair share of f*cked up texts, insults, threats, etc. Hell, I even got a text from a creep who said that he would rape my sister baby! Who thinks of this sh*t? It's genuinely f*cked up. In fact, I'm still waiting for my PSN account to be deleted by two individuals that claimed they were going to do so. It's been like 7-8 months now, and my account is still up. One of them claimed to know people that could get my account removed. Hmmm... I wonder what's taking them so long.

EPFhpXzWoAA__JE?format=jpg&name=large

 

EPFhqUOWsAANVZz?format=jpg&name=large

 

^^Again, these were from 7-8 months ago. Still waiting for something to happen to my account. You should never take these empty pathetic threats seriously. You obviously angered them enough to make them want to scare you with threats.
