Elliot Davidson, of Orwell Close, Wolverton, pleaded guilty to hacking into a woman’s email and handing out her landline, her mobile phone number and her work address to no less than fifteen males between October 19th and November 15th 2011 after an unsuccessful experience dating the woman through a free dating site.
Magistrates were informed that the female, who now lives in Hastings, had started to become concerned each time her telephone buzzed. She had started to receive a number of texts from unknown persons who claimed to have held a conversation with her while on an online dating chatline, along with making mobile calls and visiting her business in person.
The prosecutor, Mr K. Taylor said it was an unusual situation of harassment.
It seems that Mr Davies, 40 years old, met up with the woman when on a free dating site in the middle of last year. They met up twice, and the second time they stayed at a bed and breakfast near Milton Keynes.
The victim was not that interested in forming an intimate friendship and Mr Davidson had issues with that.
No sooner had five days passed after rejecting meetings with Davies on a third occasion, the victim started to receive many texts on her phone from males she had no knowledge of.
Two unfamiliar men called in at her at workplace and said they got her phone number from a free internet dating website. The victim stated she had never used this website.
The woman was becoming totally distressed and frightened for her own personal security.
Eventually, Davies was tracked down with the assistance of the internet provider and he said he had made arrangements for a number of men to meet up with the female at her business location.
The prosecutor stated that after two live encounters, she took over his emotions and he was terribly upset because she did not want to continue with the relationship.
No decision has yet been taken as to Mr Davies’ fate.
