Everyone knows how big of a problem cyber stalking is but what you don't know is that cyber stalking is becoming just as big of a problem. Did you know that there was a survey done that states that one million women and 371 thousand men are cyberstalked yearly in the United States?So what is cyber stalking? It is similar to stalking offline but not quite the same. It is basically where someone uses electronic communication media to harass you, threaten you, bully you or try their best to intimidate you, their victim.The communication media that they might use can include email, websites, forums, newsgroups, instant messaging and anything else that is online.You will know when you have someone cyber-stalking you because they use a large variety of techniques to harass you or their other victims.
You may find that you start receiving hostile and unwelcome or unwanted emails.The key word is unwanted. If you feel uneasy about the contact someone is giving to you they may very well be stalking you online.They may publish false information about you in chat rooms and forums. They have also been found to pose as victims in provocative and confrontational sessions online and in email messages with other people. They will also use MySpace and other online sites to harass their victims.To get to their victims there are many times that physical stalkers become cyber stalkers.
The internet makes it easier for stalkers to contact their victim in a lot of new ways.This doesn't mean that you don't want to get online, it just means that you need to be careful when you are online. Always pay attention and watch what you are doing.Putting personal information online in an unsecured area is a bad idea unless you are running an online business and want to be contacted. Even then that contact should always be in a professional manner relating to the business you offer.One thing you need to be aware of is that the stalking starts online as cyber stalking, it can still turn into physical stalking. This means that you could start receiving unwanted and abusive phone calls frequently. You could experience vandalism, trespassing and maybe even a physical assault.As you can see, the problem of cyber stalking is not uncommon and there are steps that can be taken to make your life a lost easier.You do not have to sit back and get walked over.You can hire a private investigator that is an expert in reverse email investigations. They can trace the email back to the senders, locate and identify him and deliver a report that can be used in a court of law to prosecute your stalker.Stalking is serious business and should not be taken lightly so be sure the investigator you hire is qualified to carry this investigation through to the end. Many older investigators will not be familiar with this field and mistakenly tell you that a supeopne or search warrent is required. In their confusion they may also think you are asking them to hack into someone email account. Make sure the PI you hire is widely acknowledged as an expert in email tracing and is therefore qualified to handle the job.
