Default AIM Help

I have someone that is using my name as a screen name and spreading untrue things about me. I have no clue who it is, how do I find out 1. Who it is and 2. How do i delete the account. Thanks a lot!

no it is not my account, I have an aim account that doesn't have my real name in it. This person uses my real name as the screen name

Well, contact AIM and ask them to give up his IP address. They are legally bound if he is in fact using your name. If they give it up, the cops will be on his butt. If they do not, ask for a court order. If he is using your exact name, it is slandering and very illegal. It also qualifies as fraud.

yeah if he indeed is impersonating you...but you better make sure 100 percent certain that thats what he is doing you don't want to be caught up in something that isn't true you could get in trouble by taking legal action and come an find out the dude wasn't even pretending to be you...i mean what all has he done.....because you are allowed to have any name you want on aim as long as it isn't taken.

A similar thing happened to me with msn, if you contact AOL and report it they can stop them
