I was recently blackmailed by a family member. He had been sleeping on an air mattress in the office so he could work while we slept. Apparently he had taken a shine to pilfering through my belongings in the office and discovered a camera flash card I had hidden inside a file cabinet.

Unfortunately it contained a private video of my self I had been making that I was planning to surprise my wife with. Understood, you had good intentions to help, he took advantage of that.

He viewed the contents and made a copy on his laptop and put the card back so I never suspected it had been tampered with. So to make a very long story short sometime after he finally went home and left my employ he decided he had not received sufficient compensation for the work he had done.

So, it was about money, and he was of low morals, obviously. So, him being out of town, this crossed several state lines, correct?

But, they will be legal and non-violent, period. My reason for recommending that book is you can as well use it as a resource, and make your company have background checks, via the information contained within, because your brother-in-law sounds like the type who might have sent up red flags on one of those to begin with.

So I never have to worry about background checks either way. Originally posted by timewalker I think we have all had blackmail used on us or used it ourselves, even on a minute level between friends. It seems to be the way business is done. The same girlfriend, now an ex, loved that I had shoulder length hair when I met her, but as I let it grow out, it got to be a pain to take care of and I told her I was considering cutting it all off, and she threatened to leave if I did.

We went through this crap for a few years, because I did not comprehend she was in essence blackmailing me. I finally had enough of it, because I wanted to go back to my now standrard crew cut, so one day I just cut it all off, right before her work Christmas party.
