Boca Raton, FL asked in Criminal Law and Sexual Harassment for Florida

Q: Cyberstalking/Harassment Social Media

There has been a group of guys on social media who think it's fun and games to harass me constantly. I've tried blocking them on every platform before they find me, but they still do. I have proof of them making horrid memes of me, making a false account with explicit photos from a private account they Stalked me on, and how they pretended to be a clothing agency to find my address. I have one of their phone numbers and am hoping that can help pin point their location, but I'm almost 20 and I don't want to deal with this type of stuff anymore. I started crying when I saw the rude statements they made about me under the false account. What can I do legally?
