Ok, the only reason I'm putting this thread here is because I couldn't find anywhere else to put this.
Before you read on, please note that I DID NOT STEAL THIS PERSON'S ACCOUNT. Ok, so I started playing on 2b2t and I will not explain what that server is because it is not important to my question. I met a person and started skyping him. To get into the server without waiting in a queue, you have to pay or have joined before June 3rd, 2016. I don't have an account with this privilege so I asked if I could use his alternate (alt) account. He said yes and gave me his Minecraft account email and password so I started to use it. Fast forward 3 days and it was Sunday. I was doing stuff on 2b2t and then had to go out. When I came home 3 hrs later, my computer still being on and logged in, I tried to join 2b2t and it said the iconic "Invalid Session: try restarting your game."
Naturally, I restarted the game and still, the same thing happened. I started to think that maybe the password was changed because the person didn't want me to use his alternate account for some reason, even though I didn't abuse it or do anything wrong. I asked him why he changed the password and if I did anything wrong. Then he immediately started accusing me of changing his account and that already called the police and they tracked my IP to New Jersey (which is where I live). Below is our conversation... He threatened, "If you don't give it back, you could go to juvenile court within 30 days."
Our conversation on Sunday \/

[10/23/2016 3:28:07 PM] R2bEEaton: You have my word I did not even sign in to Minecraft.net or Mojang.com with your account and did not change it whatsoever
[10/23/2016 4:33:48 PM] SelfFish: i am pressing charges
Ok, first of all, that's silly. This is a 14 yr old threatening to take me to court. Second, Skype (which is what we were using) says that I live in New Jersey and I doubt he even knows my IP or called the police at all. Let me make this clear, I didn't steal his account, let's get that straight. It seems like someone is trying to frame me almost. His alt acount, i_love_tavux, 's skin was changed VERY recently to my account's one of a kind skin. Proof of that: NameMC (My account is R2bEEaton and it's a one of a kind CUSTOM skin that I made 3 years ago).
Now my question. What do I do? Can this guy actually take me to juvenile court for something like this? Here let me express this again, I DIDN'T STEAL HIS ACCOUNT OR CHANGE THE PASSWORD OR ANYTHING... Is this a scam to annoy me or get money by suing me? I'd really appreciate a SERIOUS answer. Thanks so much in advance!!
The police dont care about this, anyone can get another person's ip, its mostly due to the way the internet works, there is nothing we can do right now, but he has no evidence whatsoever from what I have read, all he has is your ip, but do watch out, he can swat you (Call the united states SWAT team, and have them come to your house claiming you have a bomb or something.) The best advice I can give you is, dont skype strangers. Im postitive the police cant do anything though, some kid once got my ip on a game, I was so worried, but the worst they can do is SWAT you.
