Cyber stalking is a form of harassment and, if you are experiencing online harassment or abuse, then it is important to take action to ensure that it stops.
If you are under the age of 18, then you should alert your parents (or if you are not comfortable talking to them, tell an adult who you trust).

How to get rid of an internet stalker The following steps will make sure your cyber stalker becomes history:

  1. Tell them to stop. The first step to dealing with a stalker is to send them a message they can't misinterpret. Something along the lines of: 'I do not want you to contact me anymore, please stop or I will call the police' can be quite effective.
  2. Don't enter into further dialogue. After you've sent this message. If your stalker replies with an explanation or continues pestering you, ignore them and move on to the next step.
  3. Tell your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and they should be able to offer you a fliter or a block which will stop the stalker being able to contact you.
  4. Keep a log of the abuse (no matter how difficult this may be) since you may wish to contact the police or law enforcement officers. They will need evidence before they can take any action and this is where your log can help.
  5. Contact the police. Don't be afraid to take your complaint to the police, your stalker needs to know that there will be repercussions. With the rise of cyber stalking, police forces are talking a much more robust and serious approach to this type of crime. Their job is to protect you, so if you feel in danger, don't hesitate to call them.
