Apparently, the initial email was legitimate. As in, apparently, this former classmate of mine who I haven’t contacted since the end of finals and with whom, on the few occasions I’ve communicated with them, I only talked about class or school related things appears to actually believe I am stalking her.
I found this out via an email from someone at the Division of Student Life at my university (I verified with the office, whose number I got online, that this was actually from them) telling me that they have issued a “no contact directive” on me, saying I’ll be punished if I have “non-incidental contact” with her. Granted, not contacting her isn’t an issue since not contacting her is exactly what I’ve been doing, but if she continues to falsely believe I am contacting her, I will be accused of violating this directive. The letter closes by saying that the letter was also forwarded to campus police.
I called the person at student life who sent the letter, calmly told them about how surprised I am to have gotten this letter, since I haven’t contacted her since the end of finals and that when we interacted our conversations were class or school related.
After I gave some basic information and stated my willingness say what I’ve said under oath or supply the emails in which we’ve corresponded and any other evidence to help show that the accusation against me is false, the person asked me two questions:
– Have I been to the campus of [public university in a neighboring state] this past spring or this summer?
(No, I haven’t been to that state since I was a little kid and I don’t know anyone, other than apparently her, who has been in that state recently)
– Have I, this past spring or summer, gone by [first name I have never gone by] or [alternative version I have never gone by of a first name I have never gone by]?
(No, I haven’t)
I was told that there is not an active investigation going on at this point, but that there could be one in the near future and that if such an investigation begins, I will be notified.
What the fucking heck am I supposed to do here? What could possibly be going on? Any advice is appreciated.
