Cyber stalking can be a very frightening experience. Often individuals who are the victims of this occurrence feel invaded and unsafe even in their own home. A large number of people use the internet as a safe way to explore the world and when that safety is invaded it can leave a person feeling vulnerable and scared. This is the very thing that cyber stalkers depend on when they use the internet to victimize individuals. The important thing to remember here is that you don’t have to be a victim; there are ways that you can fight back and put a stop to this type of harassment.

Internet investigations can go a long way toward identifying individuals who choose to use cyber stalking as a way of intimidating people. The most popular type of internet investigation used for this purpose is a reverse email look-up. This type of investigation can uncover more than just the identity of the person harassing you, it can also find out other important details. Some of the data that can be obtained through this process also includes address and phone number, internet service provider and browser information, where the person works, where the emails originated from and even what websites the person visits.

A proper reverse email trace consists of much more than what websites claiming to offer this service can provide. Many times these websites are ineffective and recover little or no helpful information. The best course of action in identifying cyber stalking offenders is to look to the professionals. These investigators are highly trained in the process of getting the necessary information to stop cyber stalkers in their tracks. After this information is obtained you will get a detailed report of this data which generally takes anywhere from a day to two weeks, depending on the situation at hand.

Once you have the details of the person you believe is cyber stalking you, the next step is to take the necessary action to put a stop to the stalking. The first thing to do is provide all the information you have as well as whatever proof you may have to the proper authorities. You should never attempt to resolve a situation such as this on your own. You never know what the person on the other end of the harassment is capable of and you should always leave this part to the professionals.
