Not every victim of cyber stalking is accosted by a stranger. In a surprisingly large number of cases the person being victimized may know the person who is harassing them. Many times this unwanted attention may seem harmless enough but just knowing that they have the power to contact you whenever they want can be unnerving. Sometimes this type of stalking occurs when a person has been rejected in person and so they then choose to attempt excessive contact through the internet in an effort to change someone’s mind or simply to frighten the person that rejected them.
There are many different ways to learn the identity of individuals who engage in cyber stalking. One such way is with a reverse email look-up. This type of internet investigation allows a person to find out a good deal of information about a person and all that is needed is the email address they are using. Some of the specific information about an individual that may be obtained through this method includes name, address, phone number, place of employment, internet service provider and browser, location and even internet activity. Having this information will make it much easier to stop this type of harassment.
The amount of time it takes to perform a reverse email look-up can be anywhere from 24 hours to 14 days depending on each individual situation. Your best bet is to rely on a professional that is trained in the field of reverse email look-ups and knows what steps to take to obtain information for cyber stalking victims. There are a large number of websites that claim to be able to provide this service free of charge and produce results instantly. The problem here is that this avenue is often ineffective and rarely produces unreliable results, which is why this type of investigating should be left to the professionals who have unlimited resources at their disposal.
Cyber stalking should never be dismissed as harmless. What starts out as seemingly harmless jabber can often escalate into a very dangerous situation. The best way to prevent this is to hire a professional to conduct a reverse email look-up at the first signs of harassment. Waiting too long can be both dangerous and fool hardy as this may result in consequences that could have been avoided by taking the appropriate action in the beginning. Remember that being safe means being cautious and you can never be too cautious.
