    1. Block the user by right-clicking on the contact name and clicking Block this person.
    2. Tick the box for Report abuse (if the person is in your contact list, also tick the box for Remove from your contact list).
    3. Click the Block button.
    4. Contact your local law enforcement agency to report the incident.
