Woman arrested on harassment charges after using 'proxy stalker'


Police in Okinawa have arrested a 23-year-old woman after she used a "revenge" website to get another woman to harass her ex-boyfriend.

According to police, Ayaka Ishii, a food-service employee and a resident of Okinawa city, was one of two women who met on an online ex-boyfriend "revenge" site set up to harass former partners.

TV Asahi reported that after her 25-year-old boyfriend, with whom she had been living, broke up with her last August, Ishii sent a threatening anonymous letter to him stating, "I will get payback, from your friends, from your family, I will."

According to police, Ishii had sent the letter via 27-year-old Marina Yokoro, a woman she met on an online revenge forum.

Police said Ishii has denied all charges. However, police have confirmed that Yokoro sent dead cockroaches to the family of Ishii's former boyfriend on numerous occasions.

I guess you can find anything online these days, even proxy stalkers. I wonder if you can even hire hitmen online.

This is dedicated to people who think only guys are capable of stalking. Boo-ya!

People have too much time on their hands. The time she spent finding a proxy stalker online she could have spent finding a new boyfriend online. Pathetic.

I could almost swear I attended college with her... all I can say is that Karma will come back to haunt her.

I don't recall anyone saying "only males are stalkers." I'm glad that the police are looking at anyone who threatens another by continued harassment.

Funny you can write this, but I cannot respond. To answer: yes, you can. There have been many reports of people doing so.

Harassment online is not a joke.

Harassment full stop is no joke. Online is just easier which is why so many real losers become trolls and similar. not sure what the sending dead cockroaches in the post is supposed to do.

A stalker's presence is scary regardless of gender.

While I can see the motive for the dumped woman (although given this behavior it might explain why she was dumped) but what was the motive of the proxy? I guess it was money, but it does not say in the article.

This stuff is hitting closer to my home. Too close to me. Scary. Bad idea all around.

The best thing to revenge her ex-boyfriend would have been to get a new better boyfriend.

I have always known that some people have that cockroach mentality. But when it is put into practice, it is disgusting.

So, revenge stalking is illegal, but revenge websites are not? That makes perfect sense, NOT!

A demented mind will always find a way to fullfill it's demented views.

how does one obtain dead cockroaches?

1 ( +2 / -1 )

So, she raised cockroaches, killed them and mailed them? That may even be sicker than the stalking part.

Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never harm me! What ever happened to that meaning? Or can they?

-2 ( +0 / -2 )

So, would that "revenge" website become a list of all women any guy should avoid having a relationship with?
