Having a stranger following you on the streets absolutely provide a scary feeling. A stalker can be an obsessed person who has negative intentions or it can be simply a person who just want to see you walk a round but this provides you an odd feeling and you need it to stop.
There are a lot of reported stalking cases and the law has protected these individuals by giving the stalker restraining order while those who are doing beyond following the victim around are placed in jail. With the modern technology, stalking also took a notch higher.
There are cyberstalkers who are taking interest in everything you do online as well as with your regular life. Their sole goal is to become a best friend and cohort, showing keen interest in your location, organizations, friends, colleagues, family and any other facets of your life.
They may stalk through phone calls, emails, connecting to those who know you or even a collection of photos, documents, background information, social networks and anything connected to your current social life and job. They quickly drop formal titles you may have accrued over the years, feeling entitled to call you by your first name. Some cyberstalkers are exceptionally good in keeping themselves anonymous but there are also a few who are unable to keep their animosity.
If this chance is given to you and you found out who this person is, you need to report this to the authorities. There is a law created for people attacked in cyberspace and you can get yourself a lawyer to prevent this from happening again or with another person. A cyberstalker is not different from a normal stalker, if not even more dangerous. Defend yourself by finding a good lawyer to help you out with this concern and put a stop to these incidents.
