If you feel you're being stalked, here is what you should do:
- Report the incident. If it is an emergency, call 911.
- Write down everything that is happening, including the date, time, location, and a detailed description of what happened. Also keep any voicemails, text/email messages, screenshots, or items sent to you.
- Tell someone – friends, family members, roommates – about the problem and the importance of keeping your information private. They can also provide support and look out for you.
- Avoid being alone – walk with a friend and try to tell someone where you are going and when they can expect you to return.
- Remember, stalking is a crime and the stalker’s behavior is not your fault!
