(Previous part here)

Having worked out the threat in the previous email I chose to take whoever 'they' are's rage. I deleted the email and decided to write a reply...

Ok, I think its about time you knew who is threatening me. I purposely blocked out the sender's email address in the last part because I didn't want you to know who it was from. But I think I'm going to have to spill the beans:

The email was sent from...

I cant do it, sorry! It brings back too may painful memories. I know, I'll encode the email address and if you manage to work it out I'll tell you about them and my connections in the third part.

[email protected]

That might be a bit hard...

I'll encode the email I sent back and add that...

When you've worked this out I'll tell you about them in the next part.

Hint:

Look down, you know your ABC right?

Here's the message:

I WON’T DELETE MY ACCOUNT BECAUSE YOU HAVE THREATENED ME. I KNOW WHO YOU ARE AARON AND I KNOW WHAT YOU DO. I HAVE MORE INFORMATION ABOUT YOU AND YOUR COLLEAGUES THAN YOU THINK. IF I WAS TO MAKE ONE SIMPLE PHONE CALL INVOLVING THE SAME THREE NUMBERS, THEN YOU WOULD BE BEHIND BARS. IF I DELETE MY ACCOUNT THAT WILL ALLOW YOU AND YOUR “FRIENDS” TO HAVE FREE ACCESS TO THE STACK WEBSITE. I’M NOT GOING TO LET THAT HAPPEN…

And here's the cypher block:

a:M, b:L,c:V, e:S, f:W, g:D, h:F, i:G, j:U, k:H, m:K, o:B, p:I, q:O, r:P, s:E, t:A, u:R, v:Y, w:C, z:T

Really fun one!

Edit - forgot the email:

[email protected]
