Stalking - Harassment
The most common strategy of a cyber stalker/harasser is to attempt to damage the reputation of a victim by circulating information which claims to expose some aspect, be it real or fictional, of the victim’s life. By doing this the cyber stalker hopes to cause the greatest amount of embarrassment and grief to the victim. In situations like this clients have benefitted from a number of services that we provide:
Tracing the Cyber Stalker
CTAC can help you trace and identify the person that is harassing you online, discover the reasons you are being targeted and assist you in remedying the situation.
Logging the incidents of harassment and gathering necessary evidence is vital in cases of harassment. We can advise and help you gather evidence against the person(s) harassing you.
Online Reputation Audit
We will carry out meta-searches via search engines and Social Networks to uncover and record any negative content written about you. Once you are aware of any negative content you will be better prepared to deal with the material appropriately.
Our system of social networks is invaluable in assisting you to reclaim your reputation and credibility. With our assistance you can have any content that can’t be removed, buried so far down the search engine results that it becomes virtually invisible.
According to statistics, more than one million people are being stalked by an ex-partner, secret admirer, or an infatuated mentally unstable individual. Many stalkers form obsessions with their victim that can result in them progressing from the cyber-world to physical stalking. That obsession with their victim can also lead the stalker to become proficient in investigation techniques such as eliciting information and physical surveillance of their victim.
Counter Surveillance & Personal Security Advice
With our extensive experience and expertise, CTAC will assist you, to uncover the surveillance activities of the person stalking you. With our personal security advice, you will learn how to use effective countermeasures that can disrupt the stalker’s plans and frustrate their efforts.
Legal Process Service
Once a stalker has been identified, often, it is necessary to seek a legal remedy in order to get them to stop their stalking behaviour. In these situations, we will advise you on how to obtain a relevant Court Order and we will personally serve that Order upon the stalker on your behalf.
