    I had the same problem with a young lady who turned out to be a scammer. If
    you have Windows Live Messenger and the people bothering you are in your
    contact list, you can right click on their name and there is a "block
    contact" option. Make sure that their information it the contact card is
    filled out as much as possible so as to block them in all aspects. Hope
    this was helpful.

    In what email program? If it's Windows Mail and they repeatedly use
    the same return address, open a message from them, then click on
    Message, then Create Rule From Message, then the box before
    Delete it, then OK. You may see more mail from them that you have
    already downloaded, but any messages they send in the future will
    be deleted as they come in.

    If they keep changing their return address, as many spammers do,
    you'll need a more complicated rule instead.
