You’re minding your own business. Instantly, you sense someone lurking in the shadows and you can’t seem to get him or her off your back. You’re feeling as if that protective shield (around you) is vulnerable or susceptible to violation at any time.
More than 3.4 million people in the United States are victims of stalking by intimate partners, acquaintances or strangers; and all states have anti-stalking laws, according to privacyrights.org. But some state laws require that the perpetrator threaten the victim before the person can be accused of stalking. Stalking comes in varying degrees – sexual, physical, or mental if possible and can take place in your residence, at work or over the phone. Cyberstalking is equally as bad. As a result, it’s our duty to clue you into signs you may be targeted by a stalker.
