1) Someone sent my boyfriend an IM of my livejournal user name a year or so ago. I wrote about us in it, and some of our fights, and I didn't give it to him for that reason. It wasn't a big deal, really, it was just weird that someone somehow knew he was my boyfriend. I don't know how in the world they got his screen name.
2) Someone (he's not sure if it was the same person as before) somehow got ahold of some conversations I was having over AIM and sent them to my boyfriend. No one else had access to my computer so it must have been done from somewhere else.
3) My boyfriend got an IM from a friend of mine that the friend insists he didn't send. I'm inclined to believe him, also since his screen name as it showed up on my boyfriend's computer was in all lower-case letters and my friend's screen name is not all lower-case. The only conclusion I could come up with is that someone sent it from a phone using AIM but, for one thing, he had his phone with him, and two, he would know if someone else had signed on as him and no one had.
1 and 2 could potentially have broken up me and my boyfriend. 3 was sensical enough and realistic enough that I asked my friend how he got my boyfriend's screen name, just because I was curious, and he had no idea what I was talking about. It was not a message that would arouse suspicion. It was sent when my boyfriend was away, so he didn't respond at the time.
What the hell is going on?
Side note: I once looked at my boyfriend's deadjournal and called him and screamed at him about what was written there, and he was totally clueless. Someone, and this time, he figured out who, had gone onto his journal and changed stuff. I don't think, for various reasons, that the same person is doing this. I really don't...
Anyway, are there people who just like to hack into other people's AIM conversations or screen names and just mess around with their lives? Is someone trying to break me and my boyfriend up? Is there any way to figure out who is doing this?
Added note: Is there any program that allows people to send messages using someone else's screen name?
