A Cease and Desist Letter is used as a formal request to the recipient to stop (cease) and not continue (desist) any unwelcome or illegal behavior. If the recipient fails to comply with the request, the sender should be prepared to take further legal action to stop the behavior that is harming or interfering with the sender's rights and well-being.
This Cease and Desist Letter is specifically drafted to address harassment in its general sense. Harassment may be in the form of causing psychological or financial distress, or any other act that is unwelcome or offensive in nature.
Harassment may include the unnecessary sending of excessive text messages, damaging someone's property, trespassing on someone's property, or any other irritating acts that are offensive in nature.

However, it is important to include a detailed description of the offending behavior and a clear demand to stop the behavior otherwise legal action may be taken. The Cease and Desist Letter can also be used as evidence that the recipient was put on notice about their offending behavior so the more detailed the letter, the better.
