Cyberstalking: Dangers on the Information Superhighway
This article provides facts about cyberstalking and expert guidance for victims of cyberstalking. Although there is no universally accepted definition of cyberstalking, the term is generally used to refer to the use of the Internet, e-mail, or other telecommunication technologies to harass or stalk another person. It is not the mere annoyance of unsolicited e-mail. It is methodical, deliberate, and persistent. The communications, whether from someone known or unknown, do not stop even after the recipient has asked the sender to cease all contacts, and are often filled with inappropriate, and sometimes disturbing, content. Essentially, cyberstalking is an extension of the physical form of stalking.

What is identity theft? Identity theft occurs when an individual's personal identifying information for example, name, address, and social security number is taken and used to steal money or services. Personal information can also be used to create a false identity that will make it harder for law enforcement to find the perpetrator. Stalkers sometimes use victims stolen identities to harass their victims by, for example, subscribing to unwanted publications and services, taking out personal ads in their names, or using Internet chat rooms, message boards and e-mail to impersonate them.
