Yea you will be fine honestly most of the time they just talk and don't actually show up


NastyBastord

Most of the time?


Harry_mcmoron

Hopefully


Raccooninja

They don't have your address.


Harry_mcmoron

Alright then


Hubsimaus

If they have your address they should prove it. You left out context so I can't telm what happened. But I assume they told you they have your address just to mess with you. I once got told by some guy in a group chat he wanted to murder me irl and I got spooked for a while. He even described what he wanted to do. I reported and blocked him.


Harry_mcmoron

He only said the city I live in so I think it'll be fine


Hubsimaus

In another comment you said state. So they found out state AND hometown? Anyway, they just wanna mess with you I guess. Otherwise you got a few helpful tips already.


Harry_mcmoron

My bad accidently said city just the state


Hubsimaus

As a german I learned states in the USA (I assume you're living there) are HUGE so they won't do anything. How do they want to find you?


Harry_mcmoron

Ya i think they were just trying to intimidate me since they dont know where i live also it was like 1-15 so ya guy got rekt so he was like really mad


NoobGamer87

They just got ur ip.. nothing else.

Probably not, pack up and move. GTA online players are always 100% serious. Like the 13 year old British kid who said he was gonna dig up my grandma and do unspeakable things to her (used other words) next day, we got a call from the cemetery and let's just say it was a mess...


Inner_Attitude

the british gta necromaniac? i thought he was just an urban legend... 😟


Admiral-snackbaa

Nope, we come across as aloof and pretentious but really we’re just dark side pervs


LMT323

The force was definitely strong with that one


LMT323

I wish he was

Did they message you your exact street address, or just say that they had it? If it's the second one, then they're most likely just lying. If it's the first, then I'd say probably just be a little more cautious going about your life, but try not to worry too much as chances are they live ages away, and are just BSing anyways. If you're super concerned, you could probably think about getting in touch with local law enforcement about what your options are, but they won't really do too much about it unless the person threatened you. I get the feeling that a good percentage of people who do this just want to mess with you, make you scared. I'm not recommending that you spend the foreseeable future locked away in your house, as that's not a practical way for you to live your life, but I'd say probably keep an eye out just to be 110% sure everything is fine.


Harry_mcmoron

Just my state so I think I'll be fine


JustaSnowbody

If it's that broad then yeah, you'll be fine.


Harry_mcmoron

Ya prolly


Mr_Intergalactic

Somebody sent me chocolate dicks once and I had to explain to my dad that somebody on the internet was pulling a prank


Harry_mcmoron

That must have been awkward lol


Mr_Intergalactic

It got worse when I had to explain to the pizza man that I didn't order pizza and it was somebody online pulling a prank The pizza guy was mad at me lmao, I dont blame him tho, I llived in a really bad neighborhood and when I actually did order pizza one of the drivers told me that because they all fear coming to the area I live, that whenever I orderz they all draw straws and shit to figure out who the unlucky person is that has to deliver (Back story, police where always on my street because of crazy shit, one dude got jumped and hit with a sledgehammer)


Harry_mcmoron

Jesus a sledge hammer but the fact they drew sticks lmao


Mr_Intergalactic

Lmao, that area was called Clown Town because everybody thought the street lamp at the entrance was shaped like a clown, it was actually supposed to be a fisherman, as all the streets in the community were named after fish One time I had friends visit and they were waiting for their parents to pick them up. Their parents got met at the front entrance by some ppl with baseball bats because they "looked suspicious" and after that I had to go visit my friends Cruz none of them wanted to visit that area, I moved after a year, Florida ain't like what they advertise in vacation pamphlets


Harry_mcmoron

That's actually funny but the fact these parent went to pick up their kids and got greeted by people with baseball bats is just crazy I dont blame them for not dropping off their kids their and it seem neither do you.


Mr_Intergalactic

I wouldn't really say kids, they were 17, 18, we were all hanging out sorta cuz one of them had a doctor appointment and I let them borrow my dad's car But yeah, I absolutely hated living there, I have a few Facebook videos where I'm sitting outside and you can hear fights in the background The night the dude got hit with a sledgehammer, I was at walk mart and my sister called me to tell me police and medics were outside cuz of a fight, when I got home, my racist neighbor told me it was "those damn n words"although, he said the actual word, and yelled it, lol He was wrong tho, it was white dudes attack g a white guy, my neighbor was just racist as hell and super old so he didn't give a ahit who heard him I live in a much nicer area now tho, across the street from a golf course,


Harry_mcmoron

Well this place seems to suck also my bad about the kid assumption but the fact you lived with racists and were in a bad spot I just wanna say good job you got out of dodge sounds like a horrible place.


pelican_daddy123

From the comments, sounds like they got your IP address. No biggy really, I could get your IP address in the next few minutes, it's not anything hard to do really. All they can really do is DDoS you and bugger up your internet connection for a while... which is a crime... if you wanted to go that route. I wouldn't worry pal, loads of teenagers thinking they're big lads cause they googled how to get someones IP address and found out the city they live in.


Harry_mcmoron

Oh okay thx that's a weight off my shoulders


JohnP_001

99.99% you’re safe. They just got your IP address and are just trying to scare you.


monkooo

You’ll be fine. They are trying to intimidate you with mild success, evidently. I’ve been told the same and it causes 5 seconds of wtf for me too. They’re silly. But maybe you should get a German Shepard or something just in case. I already had mine so I was all set there! Your good, homie. I seriously doubt some kid wants to risk real jail over any Gta bs


Harry_mcmoron

Ya that's what I was thinking also we have guns hidden around so we should be good


monkooo

Exactly!


Greedy_Economics5424

They can’t really do much with your address anyway you’ll be fine


Harry_mcmoron

K thanks this is the first time this has happened was a bit scared


8PieceCheesecake

For future help you should download a VPN. Yes I know they cost. Just go to Malwarebytes and reuse the free trial.


Harry_mcmoron

I'm on xbox


8PieceCheesecake

Can still be done rather easily if you have both an Ethernet cable and a capable PC


AutomatedApathy

Ip or.home. I assume your home address when you say it but who the fuck knows


Harry_mcmoron

He said the state and home im not to sure but I think he meant that the internet is labeled home cause dont internet providers have like groups like one for malls and work spaces others for homes?


Harry_mcmoron

If you guys want I can tell you guys the guys name


DrunkenMonk-1

Watch they don't swat you
