Aren't economists all supposed to be boring ?

The New York Daily News reports that Heleen Mees had been in a relationship with Citigroup’s Willem Buiter, but when things soured, the Dutch economist and one-time NYU professor began sending him a barrage of messages through emails, which ranged from racy, to X-rated, to demented.

Ms Mees was arrested on Monday night.

Mees, 44, was busted for stalking and harassing chief Citigroup economist Willem Buiter - sending him explicit photos of herself and images of other naked women, the Daily News has learned.

A one-time NYU professor, Mees sent Buiter more than 1,000 emails over a two-year period, authorities said.

Some of them were laced with threats, while at least one was a hyper-sexual come-on. 'What can I do to make it right ? Shall I lick your xxxxx ?' Mees allegedly wrote in one email.

'Shall we adopt a child ?', she wrote in another.

At least one message was far darker. 'Hope your plane falls out of the sky', Mees wrote to Buiter, court papers say.

Mees was arraigned Tuesday and was ordered to stay away from Buiter and his family. She also targeted Buiter’s wife and children, sending them unwanted messages, court papers said.

Mees left Rikers Island after a jailhouse visit Thursday from top diplomat, Rob de Vos, the Dutch consul general in New York. She had her $5,000 bail posted by friends.
