Advice Please

Calling on my blogging friends to advise me. Several years ago, I posted a picture on a post which I found googling. The photographer has contacted me, demanding that I remove it. He has sent an invoice and claims that I infringed on copyright.

He has begun to harrass me, sending several emails a day, threatening to report me for copyright infringement, and listing the penalties.

I deleted the photos after his first request.

Is this a scam or an unhinged harrasser?

    Do you make money on your blog? I don’t really know anything about this, but common sense says, if you were not using the photo for gain, and you removed it when asked, to dun you is harassment.

      I do not, and I have pointed out that I have had very few readers. Several threatening emails today equals harassment in my opinion. If he had made a reasonable case that I owe him, I would probably have complied. But the aggressive nature of his emails has me wondering if it’s a scam, or if he has been hacked.
