What is Stalking?

A victim described stalking as "when someone is forcing you into a relationship against your will"

They intrude in every aspect of your life. They need to know what you're doing, who you are doing it with, how you are feeling.

They will spy on you, hack your accounts, contact your friends, watch everything you do online and more. The are obsessed, they won't stop - and you feel you are going crazy. 

On 25 November 2012 two new laws on stalking came into effect. The new offences of stalking and stalking involving a fear of violence will sit alongside existing offences in the Protection from Harassment Act 1997.
