Stopping a dangerous stalker is the most difficult part of the stalking experience. And while the word, victim implies helplessness, that’s often the predicament one finds themselves in if they are unfortunate enough to draw a personality disorder dead set on playing the predator role for as long as it takes to conquer the stalked. Indeed, stalkers’ level of seriousness vary. Some will cease and desist rather quickly while others chase their prey for years and years. The risk a “victim” faces is failing to detect the level of seriousness of the hunter unless and until harm is done.
This article is for the individual who wants solutions. Stopping a stalker is not an easy task. And time, effort and money are required to regain one’s freedom.
Once a person enters the desperation phase and realizes his or her life is at stake, the level of seriousness often shifts to survival mode.
Changing one’s location is a first step to breaking the trail from the tormentor. It’s a drastic step, but remember, we’re talking about survival-traditional remedies will have already been exhausted. Restraining orders, law enforcement assistance, good intentioned social agencies all have their place, and admittedly, these agencies have all helped stalking victims. But we’re interested in solutions only you can achieve to gain your independence when everything else has failed and you know you’re in danger.
Home privacy is perhaps the most important part of any privacy program. If you can be found by way of a credit report, you can be found by the stalker hunting you. You will not be able to escape unless you resort to non-traditional home privacy methods-principles used by privacy experts who have to succeed, and you will be wise to copy these guys and gals in order to survive.
Surprisingly, once one is serious and realizes their life is on the line and proper techniques and principles are used to escape, the time it takes to “disappear” is only a day or so. You can escape a dangerous stalker by this time tomorrow once you learn what is required to do it.
Establishing an alternate identity may sound like a measure you would like to avoid. I don’t blame you. It’s inconvenient, requires some none of your business types of fibbing and is one of the most effective methods of escaping a stalker, forever.
You are well on your way to freedom and safety once you have relocated and there is no paper trail to your home or name by way of traditional data base searching methods. However, the use of an alternate identity and a residence that allows you to live under the radar are only the beginning of your new life away from your stalker.
You will probably have to work. Can you work and keep your privacy? Yes. But, that presents a whole new set of challenges. For now, let’s just say that it can be accomplished and we’ll leave that subject for another article as it is a specialized privacy principle.
