What To Do When A Cyber Stalker Is Watching You


We are living in a New World Order where cyber space has become one of our primary sources to become connected to the world. The internet has has brought us all together as a human race, where we can gain the most updated news and events, and information regarding just about anything we wish to know. The internet definitely has its benefits. Yet there is a risk in utilizing the internet when engaging and partaking in social media. 

Recently, I decided to be consistent in posting Youtube videos on a variety of subjects that I am passionate about. Many of the topics coincide with my ideology of living a creative and fulfilled lifestyle with purpose. Much to my dismay, I came across a new subscriber who wanted to get personal very quickly. He had lost sight to the reality that I like so many others are serving a specific purpose in social media. While we as content creators encourage a following from social media venue to social media venue, this particular man became very peculiar...very quickly; inquiring about my personal life. He was insistent upon getting information, regardless of the fact that I was attempting to redirect him back to the purpose of the channel. Suddenly he brought forth negativity within his comments as he was dissatisfied with my responses to him. I had no other alternative than to "block" him from speaking. Yeah...Youtube has no feature that would banish a subscriber from watching the videos. How creepy...the guy hasn't unsubscribed yet. 

Check out the photo above, that he uses as his profile picture. CREEPY... isn't it? And most appropriate for his behavior. Could this be a cyberstalker? More than likely...yes. And in instances such as this it is best to keep all correspondence on record in the event this type wishes to pursue criminal-like behavior.

No need in getting nervous should this happen to you...just be very willing to do you're own investigative work. "Stalk the stalker so-to-speak" just enough to tally as much information you would need to file a report at your local police station, and should you find out his (or her) location that they prepared to report in their area as well. That is the beauty of the internet. A world of information is available.

What is Cyberstalking

Cyberstalking involves using electronic means, including the Internet, to stalk or harass a person or group of people. Cyberstalking can include many things including threats, solicitation for sex, false accusations, defamation, slander, libel, identity theft, and vandalism. Cyberstalking is often used in conjunction with offline stalking, as both are an expression of a desire to control, intimidate, or manipulate a victim. A cyberstalker may be someone the victim is familiar with, or a complete stranger, and is a criminal offense.

Cyberstalking is a crime in which the attacker harasses a victim using electronic communication, such as e-mail or instant messaging (IM), or messages posted to a Web site or a discussion group. A cyberstalker relies upon the anonymity afforded by the Internet to allow them to stalk their victim with or without being detected." Read More On Cyber Stalking

One Example Of A Cyber Stalking Subject Who May Be Enticed With Finding Out Information About A Person They Are Stalking

The term "information assurance" was first used by the U.S. government, but it has since made its way into common usage as an all-encompassing definition of "the technical and managerial measures designed to ensure the confidentiality, possession or control, integrity, authenticity, availability and utility of information and information systems," 

Common job titles for people who work in either field include information security analyst, computer security specialist, data security administrator, information security analyst, information security specialist, information systems security analyst and information technology security analyst.

These folks are surely trained in not only protecting information, but hacking into accounts, and very egotistically making attempts to disrupt those on the internet; specifically if those persons aren't "wrapped too tight". Should they have some hidden agendas for the purpose of gaining control of some sort, be mindful, and protect your information as much as possible. And whatever you do, if you suspect that your communications with them in social media are all means cease all communication immediately. Sociopathic behavior requires being fed by the potential "victim" the cyberstalker is intending to pursue.

Take The Information Below Into Consideration: The Make-up Of A Potential Stalker

Stalkers will not take no for an answer.
They refuse to believe that a victim is not interested in them or will not rekindle their relationship and often believe that the victim really does love them, but just doesn't know it and needs to be pushed into realizing it. As long as they continue pursuing their victim, the stalker can convince themselves they haven't been completely rejected yet.
Stalkers display an obsessive personality.
They are not just interested in, but totally obsessed with the person they are pursuing. Their every waking thought centers on the victim, and every plan the stalker has for the future involves the victim. Ask yourself this. Is the person totally involved in and completely overwhelmed with pursuing someone who has no and never will have any interest in him or her?
Along with obsessive thinking, they also display other psychological or personality problems and disorders. They may suffer from erotomania, paranoia, schizophrenia, and delusional thinking. According to Professor R. Meloy, "these stalkers have rigid personalities and maladaptive styles. These disorders in themselves are very stable and not treatable." There are drugs to treat certain specific mental disorders, but stalkers, when given the choice, seldom continue with their medication or treatment.
Stalkers are above average in intelligence and are usually smarter than the run of the mill person with mental problems.
They will go to great lengths to obtain information about their victims or to find victims who have secretly moved. They have been known to hack into computers, tap telephone lines, take jobs at public utilities that allow them access to the victims or information about the victims, and even to travel thousands of miles and spend thousands of dollars to gain information about or find their victims. Stalkers many times use their intelligence to throw others off their trail.
Most stalkers don't have any relationship outside the one they are trying to re-establish or the one they have imagined exists between them and their victim. 
Because they are usually loners, stalkers become desperate to obtain this relationship.
Stalkers don't display the discomfort or anxiety that people should naturally feel in certain situations.
Normal individuals would be extremely embarrassed to be caught following other people, going through their trash looking for information about them, leaving obscene notes, and other inappropriate behavior displayed by stalkers. Stalkers, however, don't see this as inappropriate behavior, but only as a means to gain the person's love.
Stalkers often suffer from low self-esteem, and feel they must have a relationship with the victim in order to have any self worth.
Preoccupations with other people almost always involve someone with weak social skills and low self-esteem.
Few stalkers can see how their actions are hurting others.
They display other sociopathic thinking in that they cannot learn from experience, and they don't believe society's rules apply to them. Most stalkers don't think they're really threatening, intimidating, or even stalking someone else. They think they're simply trying to show the victims that they're the right one for them.  To the victims of stalking it is like a prolonged rape.
Stalkers, like rapists, want absolute control over their victims. They don't regard what they're doing as a crime, or even wrong. To them it is true love, with the exception that the victim doesn't recognize it yet. With enough persistence, stalkers believe they will eventually convince the victims of their love.
Stalkers many times have a mean streak and will become violent when frustrated.  How violent?  Often deadly.
