Glad we were able to help. Remember to share the scammer's details here too, so others can be warned and possibly saved from falling for the same thing you've been through.

Done (form details) and it looks like "she" has been busy with another post as well
Would welcome community's thoughts on digital forensic companies and utility. I am really skeptical, especially if one believes that this is a number game for them and after being told no they just move on. But would love to hear both good and bad from those that used in case i should rethink my initial.position. i do NOT like checking email every 10 minutes to see if "she" followed through.

If you read our steps after filling the form, you may have seen that we recommend NOT using the same email as you did with the scammer, but a new one. Scammers can and do put trackers or return receipts on threatening emails, so if they are opened, BAM!, they know that you are looking and they will continue to threaten you.
Also, no need to check the new email every 10 minutes, as you DID set Google alerts to let you know if something should pop up, right? The steps are all there for a very good reason. You need to follow them to the letter.

Yes. Sadly their google skills are up to snuff, i have a public email that really cant be changed (easily) so they know where to find me. BUt 72 hours in and no contact after block skype and disabling facebool I am assuming that the effort to go after me furtheris nil.
Also thanks for advice on the other matter.
