I dont believe there was any set up involved in the initial contact with my old friend. I'm the one who contacted him, and I only did so after our mutual friend died,(obviously that was just a random event) and then later after having that strange dream about my friend, (another random event), and both events would be impossible to set up. However, some of the things that began happening a few months following this initial contact , do seem to be a set up. An example would be this private facebook group, which I'm positive was a set up used to try to get some private info from me. These people obviously would have known my identity prior to the FB group, so I'm not sure what type of info they were hoping to get on me....at first I thought they were hoping to hear about an affair and then use it to blackmail me, but obviously that wasn't it. I almost think they hoped that if they tormented me long enough, I would just kill myself ( and that likely IS what they were hoping for)... but I bet they didn't think I would turn the tables on them and start investigating them. I have been told by another person who claims to have been harassed by them too (and she does have emails sent to her from the same accounts that harassed me) that they probably have some very high political connections. She may be correct. She has either been harassed as well, or she's lying and wrote the emails herself, but I tend to think she's telling me the truth. Another interesting fact is that she claims that David Miscavige is somehow connected to them. I've not seen any connection to Scientology myself, so I take that accusation with a grain of salt. Is there any talk of Miscavige being involved in politics? I've looked for info on that, but I couldn't see much to suggest any connections there.
