The definition of stalking

Stalking refers to repeated, persistent and harassing patterns of behavior.

The perpetrators approach their victims insistently and over a longer period of time and act through repeated, unwanted contact, approaches and/or harassment.

The perpetrators are usually people who, out of spurned love, pursue their ex-partners – or “unreachable people” in public life – into their private lives using various methods.

The most common form of stalking is phone calls, followed by WhatsApp, text messages and emails or leaving messages on the car or doorstep.

Victims often receive shocking and obscene mail. 

Other stalking tactics include staying close to the victim, which is also demonstrated by standing or sitting there without saying a word.

They run after their victims and pursue them, even with a vehicle.

They try to come into contact with their victims through third parties and listen to the victims’ environment.

In an increased form of stalking, the perpetrators commit further criminal acts such as damaging their victims’ property and/or breaking into their apartments/houses. Some perpetrators even become violent.

Stalking is a criminal offense

As soon as your private or professional life is repeatedly affected by another person to such an extent that you cannot fully live out your lifestyle, you should seek help.

Stalking or stalking is punishable in a variety of ways.

As described above, it involves a large number of individual actions, such as tracking, stalking, ambushing or following, and the overall composite behavior is referred to as stalking.

This refers to the behavior of the perpetrators aimed at unwanted communication.

If you are a victim of stalking

We would be happy to advise you on how you can defend yourself.

  • Keep a “stalking diary.”

Write down all unwanted events with the date and time and what happened. If necessary, print out unwanted emails and take screenshots of telephone messages.

  • You can and should file a report with the police. In general, proving stalking is very difficult for victims.

We help you secure the necessary evidence that can be used in court.

Our qualified and experienced investigators will quickly, discreetly and reliably research the necessary evidence that can be used in court so that you can lead a quiet and safe life again. Using the most modern technical equipment, we can obtain rock-solid evidence through professional observations.

If the perpetrator is convicted of a crime, there may also be a possibility that he will have to reimburse you for the detective costs.

We are available to give you a free, non-binding preliminary consultation
