My Story

WARNING: What you are about to read could be shocking. If you are not aware of this phenomenon, you would probably not believe what I say. What you find here are my observations and analysis based on my own experience.

When I worked for an email company in year 2009, I experienced a very strange situation. For the first couples of weeks, everyone seemed to be nice and friendly. Two weeks later, I felt something is not right. All of sudden, I noticed a clear difference of the way they (especially one particular group) treated me.  Some people were so rude. Some people passed hints on me. Some talked about my personal life. Some talked about  things I said or did in my apartment. They frequently referred to places, restaurants that I visited couples of days ago. Some were following me when I went to restroom or cafe. Some others mimicked my actions, words and my dresses. Some people jumped on me while I was walking along corridors of the office building and pretended like accidents. Someone had scratched my car door while it was in the parking lot. Those incidents seemed like small mishaps. I had to pee several times per day while I was at work. Sometimes I had to pee 4 times in two hours. I felt some vibration/needle like pain on my belly, leg and arm time to time. Whenever I went to pee, someone was following me. Different people were doing this at different times. But when this happened everyday more than couples of times a day, I came to realize they were doing this purposely. Weeks later, there were some changes in the management in my team. Couples of people left the company. It appeared that one particular group were behind this. Some other people are actually nice. Some of them seemed to be sympathetic to me. I was supposed to report to a new supervisor and she screamed at me couples of times. I was given less work. Sometimes I was not given any task for weeks if not months. Even If I was assigned something, it was not something important.  At the same time, this group tried to isolate me within the company. They were trying to humiliate me, control me, harass me, single me out, manipulate me and change my thought process.

Gradually, Harassment occurred even outside of the office. Whatever happened inside the office started to happen in public places too. Random people bumped on me while I was walking.  Someone was always watching me or following me while I was outside. A neighbor came or left the apartment at the same time I left or came. My neighbors started to harass me in various ways. One on right above my apartment started jumping on the floor at night. Another one banged my wall while I was sleeping. Some neighbors frequently slammed the doors. I had couples of car accidents during a short period of time. Wires of my car were badly damaged while it was at a garage overnight. The following day I was informed that  wires were eaten by rabbits. They did not pay me a penny for the damage. Instead they charged me lot more for changing a water pump that was perfectly fine.  Basically I was harassed 24/7.  I could not go to the grocery store, coffee shop, bar, gym, mall. You name it. I was harassed everywhere. Some of  the harassment tactics are strangers blocking my way using grocery carts, invading my personal space , cutting me off while I was walking or driving (This is called classical conditioning in psychology. Once you are harassed in this fashion for a long time, you would be so defensive next time you go to one of these places. You are stressed out. You are anxious).

They tried to isolate me from the society. Basically, They tried to put me under unofficial house arrest. I could not talk to anyone. Random people/friends/coworkers used directed conversation to harass me. Some tried to put the blame on me. Real perpetrators used different people to convince me that I was  just paranoid. I could not even talk to a woman. She may talk to me for couples of minutes. Then she gets a text message. Next thing I know is she is not the same woman anymore. Her tone is different. She is suspicious of me. All of sudden she wants to leave. When this happened again and again, gradually I lost interest in talking to people. Keep in mind, all these things I have described here are still happening. Intensity of the harassment is different from time to time. This is an unofficial house arrest. Luckily some people who knew what was going on tried to help me. (There were some nice people in the company too. Even the HR and training managers and many other people seemed to be nice people. It appeared that they did not have the power. ) However, gradually they were also not able to do anything. Soon, I realized that it was a carefully coordinated psychological harassment carried out by an organized group. I have been a victim of 24/7 covert electronic surveillance, psychological harassment, manipulation and mind control. This is also called organized stalking. What happened at the email company is called workplace mobbing. This is just one part of the harassment process. When all these things happened, I got sick couples of times. I had back pain, lose motion, head aches, breathing problems, allergies, cough. I could not sleep well. I felt exhausted. I was so demoralized. I was depressed.

However the surveillance had begun long before the second phase of the harassment(sensitization) occurred.  I believe this was happening even before I came to US. When I looked back at my past events and compared them with what is happening now, I came to know there is a clear pattern of this harassment. The surveillance started when I was in Sri Lanka. I was in junior high school back then. (May be even before that. We never know). I had no idea about this until I was mobbed at the email company. (Even though I was suspicious of some of my past life events , now only I can understand why and how these events happened. It was not easy to find a job. It was not easy to start a meaningful, intimate relationship with a woman I like. It was hard to meet people and make new friends I like to hang out with. I had been bullied at many different places. I thought they all happened because of my fault or I was just unlucky. Now I know that my perpetrators have been denying my basic human rights for years. They have been sabotaging all my opportunities. They have been ruining my personal/social/dating relationships. They have been doing lots of evil acts. They have been trying to push me into the lowest level of the social ladder. (Many things happened in my life since then. Some of these events had changed my life for ever). I clearly don’t know why they targeted me at the first place.

But I must say that everyone is not bad. A group of people from one particular group wants to destroy my life. This is the same group who started bullying me at the email company. It was clear they were manipulated by an invisible force (The real perpetrators). They all have the same political/religious view. They have found a similar group in Sri Lanka too. Apparently they all worked together. (Not necessarily they belong to the same race or religion). Those who started this at the workplace were able to recruit more people from different races, religions, colors, social levels, professions and political groups.  Slowly they were able to turn many people against me by spreading all sorts of lies and rumors. It seemed like they were able to recruit some of the local police officers too. I was followed by police cars for no reason when I went to work and back home. Some days, police cars were parked at the company parking lot. Apparently they can recruit anyone from the society.  They manipulate not only me but also anyone who comes into my life.  All information about me is passed to my friends, coworkers, relatives and strangers by these handlers so that they are motivated to do or say negative things. (However, I must say not necessarily everyone say or do bad things). Sometimes people are not aware that what they are doing is harmful. This is a no touch torture. My life has completely changed and harassment continues ever since. They may have put me on a watch list as this author describes here.

Most large corporate workforce and many smaller ones have already been brought wholesale into this Network through ‘Occupational Health and Safety’ laws that require employees and employers to report anything in the workplace that might be considered suspicious or threatening activity. Anyone who is reported on is assessed (without their knowledge) to determine if they should be put on a ‘watch list’. Watch lists are a key aspect of the Network’s operations, and will be discussed further on. – The network(version one) by Anthony Forwood

Also see ACLU spy files article.

The following research article describes this situation below. This is the story of my life. This is exactly what I have been going through for last 4 years. Well at least I had a good support system before I was mobbed even at my previous workplaces.

Workplace mobbing 

This phenomenon has been called “mobbing,” “ganging up on someone” or psychic terror. It occurs as schisms, where the victim is subjected to a systematic stigmatizing through, inter alia, injustices (encroachment of a person’s rights), which after a few years can mean that the person in question is unable to find employment in his/her specific trade. Those responsible for this tragic destiny can either be workmates or management.

case study – Leif case :

Leif could not keep his job, nor could he get another one, as his medical history could be only too clearly seen in his job applications. There was nowhere in society where he could turn for help. He became totally unemployable — an outcast. One of the ironies of this case is that Leif had previously been employed by a number of companies where he had performed well, had been a good workmate and had been given good references by his employers. (We have found similar cases in Sweden, Denmark, Western Germany, England,Austria, USA, and Australia.)   

Psychical terror or mobbing in working life means hostile and unethical communication which is directed in a systematic way by one or a number of persons mainly toward one individual. There are also cases where such mobbing is mutual until one of the participants becomes the underdog. These actions take place often (almost every day) and over a long period (at least for six months) and, because of this frequency and duration, result in considerable psychic, psychosomatic and social misery. This definition eliminates temporary conflicts and focuses on the transition zone where the psychosocial situation starts to result in psychiatric and/or psychosomatic pathological states.

Phase 2: Mobbing and Stigmatizing
Many of the communicative actions which can be observed occur fairly often in everyday life. But within the framework of the harassment phenomenon, they have an injurious effect,as these actions are used consistently and systematically over a long period, with the intention of causing damage (or putting someone out of action). All the observed actions have the common denominator of being based on the desire to “get at a person” or punish him/her.Thus manipulation is the main characteristic of the event. What is shown to be manipulated is:
1. The victim’s reputation (rumor mongering, slandering, holding up to ridicule).
2. Communication toward the victim (the victim is not allowed to express him/herself,
no one is speaking to him or her, continual loud-voiced criticism and meaningful
3. The social circumstances (the victim is isolated, sent to Coventry).
4. The nature of or the possibility of performing in his/her work (no work given,
humiliating or meaningless work tasks).
5. Violence and threats of violence. 

Important note in preface to Heinz Leymann, “Mobbing and Psychological Terror at Workplaces,” Violence and Victims 5 (1990), 119-126.

This is from another article.

A few common ways in which harassment is expressed
1. Making rude, degrading or offensive remarks.
2. Making gestures that seek to intimidate, engaging in reprisals.
3. Discrediting the person: spreading rumors, ridiculing him, humiliating him, calling into question his convictions or his private life, shouting abuse at him or sexually harassing him.
4. Belittling the person: forcing him to perform tasks that are belittling or below his skills, simulating professional misconduct.
5. Preventing the person from expressing himself: yelling at him, threatening him, constantly interrupting him, prohibiting him from speaking to others.
6. Isolating the person: no longer talking to him at all, denying his presence, distancing him from others.
7. Destabilizing the person: making fun of his convictions, his tastes and his political choices.

In the workplace, employees who are psychologically harassed or psychologically tortured are often described as having the wrong interpretation of events, or having a “perception problem”, a “bad attitude”, and the wrong view of reality. They are then asked to consult a medical professional, a psychiatrist, and are then usually subsequently discredited and classified as having a psychological problem or mental illness.

Community Mobbing 

Gradually the harassment at work place turned out to be a community mobbing as I explained before. It spread out everywhere I went. The perpetrators have been systematically destroying both my personal and professional life. They had been distancing me from my support groups by spreading various lies, rumors. They have isolated me from the society. The perpetrators have been constantly trying to push me into the lowest level of the social ladder. It is extremely difficult to make friends. Whenever I meet someone or a group of people, the preps approach them and poison them with negative thoughts. (But I believe some people also try to help me. The real perpetrators are so cunning and they can deceive those who try to help me). So eventually, the preps take control of friendship /relationship and manipulate my friends.  Still I try to stay positive. I decided to upload videos of my own experience at public places to social networking media like YouTube and let other people know what I have been going through. One of my goals is to educate people about this crime against humanity. If you are not a targeted individual, it would be very difficult to understand or believe what I say. People barely notice this crime even if this happens right in front of their eyes. This is happening in every country in this word today.

Harassment tactics:

Basically I am under 24/7 electronic surveillance. My personal phone conversations are listened. My phone is illegally wire tapped. My personal computer is hacked. My personal email and social networking accounts are hacked. My every move (even inside my apartment) is watched. Those who monitor me, share my very personal information, weaknesses, fears, likes, dislikes with my friends, co workers, managers, relatives and even strangers so that they get offended. Some of them may hurt. Some of them may feel jealous of me. Some of them feel inferior to me. Some of them may feel hatred towards me. The perpetrators gradually feed the information. Keep in mind, what ever the perpetrators say may not necessarily be true. They manipulate or misinterpret it. Whenever someone gets offended/hurt, they can use my personal information against me to harass me. The stalkers spread lies, twisted rumors and half truth. By doing this, the perpetrators try to discredit me as well as motivate others into using verbal attacks, cyber bullying or any other type of harassment. I don’t have any privacy right now. The perpetrators use racial, religious stereotypes as well as any other differences to turn people against me. They could use anything such as race, religion, color, age, gender, region, profession, political opinions etc. They try to break all my support systems.  They divide people into different groups and try to turn one support group against another. The perpetrators try to sensitize me to certain objects, sounds, words, that are related to a previous stalking incident. After I am sensitized to these words, objects or sounds, they ask my friends, co-workers to use these words during our conversations. The stalkers try to make me look like a crazy and paranoid person.  Lots of people participate in this stalking game. Some of them think this is just a simple joke. As they don’t see the complete picture, they don’t fully understand the sinister side of this program. Let alone dating it is extremely difficult to make any friends now. The perpetrators try to convince the audience that I am anti-social or I am a loner. The truth is the perpetrators prevent me being socialized by using various psychological harassment tactics. I was a very healthy, active, friendly and fun loving person before I experienced this harassment.

Some of other harassment tactics are gas lighting, cyber bullying, trolling, slander campaign, brightening (flashing lights by random drivers at nights), staging car accidents,  crowding at public   places, invading my personal space by strangers at public places, manipulating traffic lights while driving, creating artificial traffic on the roads or around the neighborhood, financial losses, noise campaign such as door slamming or banging walls by neighbors, rumbling car or motor cycle engines loud inside my apartment complex, honking, synchronization,  monitoring and electronic harassment by neighbors, mail tempering , delaying service at public places, keeping me waited in long lines,  anchoring, baiting, black mailing, mimicking my actions and words, sabotaging my job opportunities , blacklisting me in the job market, ruining my financial , professional and personal life . I cannot describe here some of other things they have done. This program is designed so that when a target try to explain what he/she experiences , the target appears crazy or paranoid.

Who is behind spying?

They are everyday citizens. Apparently some people from many community organizations like neighborhood watch, large corporations, religious organizations, city utility workers, senior citizens, fire fighters, local law enforcement officers, some officials from local fusion centers participate in this stalking game. It could be anyone from the society. Many of them are deceived and manipulated by the perpetrators. Also I have a feeling that real perpetrators are trying to divide people into different groups based on their religion, ethnicity, skin color, profession , social level etc and use them against me. They are using age old tactic called divide and rule to turn people from different groups against me. Vast number of people have no idea that they are being manipulated to harass and intimidate innocent people. Criminals, drug dealers and street thugs also seemed to be involved with this stalking game. For some reason, one group can do more harm compared to another group. This does not mean everyone who participates in this stalking game does bad things to me. Some are actually acting like guardians.  Everyone in a group/organization/neighborhood watch is not necessarily bad either. But some people actively engage in these stalking activities for various reasons.  Ordinary people are encouraged to participate in stalking activities. People are motivated to commit these hate crimes by instigating racial, religious, social level, skin color, different professional stereotypes. There are people who try to take advantage of my situation. There are people who are trying to degrade the quality of my life. There are people who are trying to put me into the lowest level of the social ladder. There are people who want to destroy my life. There are people who try to blackmail me. They are people who want to push their own personal agenda.  It does not matter where I live. They know everything. Once I move into a new area, a new groups in the local area are recruited and my personal information is shared with them. Also new groups also gather my information and report back to perpetrators. Everyone may not say bad things. Everyone may not report back. But some do. Now I know it for sure. I believe some of them(may be group leaders) have the capabilities of accessing the surveillance program. (It could be a software that pinpoint my exact location. Also these local groups may be able to listen to all my phone conversations, read my emails ,personal Facebook messages etc or else they get all these information from those who monitor me) . Even if I go to another country, still the perpetrators can track me. Still they can harass me. The same comedy is scripted by different groups. Intensity level of the harassment is different from country to country. So apparently this is an international network. So this could be collaborative work of rogue elements of intelligence agencies around the world. They may have infiltrated to every part of the society in this world. They are using community groups to spy on fellow civilians and even harass targeted civilians.  Once someone is on this watch list, his/her fate is at the mercy of these community groups. If they are decided to mess your life, you are on your own.

Job loss and unemployment :

It appears that I can no longer find a job in my field. Whenever I get an interview, those who want to sabotage my career, approach the employer somehow and tell all sort of negative things.  They are trying to convince the audience that I am not able to do anything.  Those who destroyed my professional career want to justify their actions. So they continue the harassment. They do not want me to work for a new company.  They do not want me to get to know new people.  Especially they do not want me to get to know influential people who may have ability to help me. The perpetrators are afraid of being exposed.  They may feel safe as long as they can convince the audience that what they had told about me is true. For me, it is obvious what they are doing. But it is barely noticeable for outsiders unless someone knew the whole thing from the very beginning.  The perpetrators use my friends and relatives to convince me that I need to do an odd job. They try to convince the audience and I that this is a very normal situation and no one sabotages my job opportunities.  Now, it seems like even if I get a job, I would be underpaid and most probably it may not be something related to my past experience. They are trying to destroy all my skills. They want to make me a useless person. They do everything possible to demoralize me. Once I am no longer tolerate their BS, they say he is not good at IT. He should do something else. Since 2009, I have been working on small projects. My salary has been decreased gradually since 2009. I was doing nothing for weeks sometimes. In couples of years I will forget things I have learn t so far. When I don’t use something, I easily forget it. Automatically I will no longer be able to take any interviews. Once this happens, my perpetrators would not have to do anything new to ruin my life. The perpetrators control every aspect of my life. Not only they ruined my professional life, they also destroyed my social life. This may be the same group or a different group. They have been trying to change my behavior. They do not let me make any friends, date any woman, go to social events. Even If I go there, they make sure I would not meet someone I can get along with.

Psychological warfare:

How everyone thinks about me depends on  carefully manipulated propaganda. Perpetrators share my personal information the way they want. They know how to deceive the audience. Many people do not believe that I am going through a hell. Some people notice my bad luck. Still they think it is just a coincidence. Either they are honestly not aware of what has been happening to me or they are afraid of accepting the truth.

Also the way everyone thinks about me depends on how the people around me (my friends, neighbors, co-workers and even strangers) report back to the network/surveillance system. If they say good things, the harassment is considerably less. If someone says a bad or negative thing, the harassment is severe. So I have to be very careful of befriending people. I have to be careful of what I talk. I need to be very picky. If I want to make new friends, I have to select pretty much perfect people who would not get offended easily. If one of my friends or a neighbor or a coworker gets offended, I may be in trouble. I may not get the job I want. I may not be able to date a woman I really like. I may not be able to hang out with people I like. Let’s say I did not get along with a rude person. This person happened to be someone from different race, religion, skin color, region, age group, social level, profession etc. Or he/she could be from the same race, religion or color etc. This person can report back to the network that I don’t get along with people from his/her race, religion, skin color, region, age group, social level, profession etc. If the person is from the same race and religion,then he/she plays a different card. Even This person can say I hate them. Basically personal conflict is generalized. I believe this is done by the perpetrators. May be it is the system (rogue elements of intelligence agencies) or people them self. One thing I surely know is severity of my harassment depends on people who come into my life. Someone may say why I care what other people think about me. Well we live in a society. We all are part of it. Humans need to interact with other human beings. We need to interact with people from opposite sex. When the perpetrators manipulate my personal information, they can basically control who I am going to befriend with. They can control my social network. They control every aspect of my life. Because of this psychological warfare, I don’t get a chance to talk, hang out with people I like. I don’t get a chance to date a woman I really like. I don’t get my dream job. All my dreams and life plans are shattered.
I usually like urban, educated (not nerdy), open minded, fun, fashionable,independent  people. Because of the propaganda, I mostly meet people who have complete opposite personalities, likes etc. When I meet a woman, there is a high probability that she is 20 years older or younger. I rarely meet someone around +/- 10 years of my age. This could be because of the following reason. When I was in my late 20s, I dated someone around 22 or 23. (No need to say why it did not work). One of my friends or neighbors might have observed this and reported back to the system or the loosely connected network. Ever since that group think I only like women in early 20′s. They tell this to everyone who comes into my life. So my new friends, neighbors also start to think that I only like women in early 20′s. The danger is when this happens, women in all other age groups stop talking to me.  Let’s take another example. If I talk to a tall guy, the perpetrators convince everyone else that I only get along with tall guys. So all the short guys stop talking to me. The perpetrators can manipulate any situation. If I say, I don’t like small size girls, the perpetrators try to convince the audience that means I like big size women which is not necessarily true. I like average body size women. If the perpetrators decide not to let me date or even talk to any woman, they can actually make it happen. That is what they have been doing so far. Not only they try to confuse me, but also they try to confuse my friends as well. My friends, relatives do not know what I really like anymore. Different groups say different things. However, all these groups can be manipulated by one group at the top level. Either they want to destroy my life or they want to prove everyone that what they have been telling about me so far is true. Once I move to a new state or country, groups in the previous location pass the information to new groups. Different groups may pass different information. They pass it the way they want. (I am not sure this is done by intelligence agencies directly or by loosely connected social group. Most probably, information may be passed by both groups). Again, if the first group thinks that I am going to like the second group and first group may not be able to control my life anymore, the first group may try to spread disinformation among the 2nd group so that they would have negative impression about me. Always groups can control what other people think about me. Not necessarily everyone says bad things.

Sometimes, the perpetrators script certain events to convince the audience that I am an alcoholic or I am such an irresponsible person etc. Different groups script different events. After I was mobbed at my company, I noticed that the perpetrators do not let me see a good-looking woman. Let’s say I sit close to a good-looking woman in a coffee shop. The perpetrators get someone to sit in between that woman and I. Believe it or not they do another thing. if I am going to sit next to a good-looking woman in a bus, the perpetrators get to know it promptly. Again they get someone to sit next to her. So that they make sure I would not even get a chance to talk to a good looking woman. I know many people would not believe this. I can give you another example. After the second stage of my harassment, I am not very comfortable of talking to people. If I talk to a working class person, my perpetrators convince everyone else that I can only get along with poor working class people. So where ever I go, I only get a chance to talk to that type of people. That really freaks me out. I can tolerate this for couples of times. After a while, I am sensitized to them. When this happens again and again for a long time, I tend not to talk to that type of people. Then perpetrators accuse me that I am arrogant big headed, ignorant person etc. You see how the play this game?

When my perpetrators generalized certain events , scenarios, they go to extreme ends. As an example, sometimes they say. “he is a super rich person.He does not have to work”. When I resist, they quickly change it to other extreme end. They try to convince everyone else that I am a really poor guy so only people I can get along with are poor people. Either way they always put me in a tight spot

I have been experiencing this harassment since 2009. The perpetrators have been doing this even before 2009. But I had no idea about those types of scripted events until I was mobbed at the email company. Couples of people had clearly gotten offended and reported back something really bad about me. I try to explain this in details under psychological warfare section of this blog.

Like I said before everyone is not bad. But even those who used to support me have sidelined now because of what evil people do. I know I am not the only one who is going through this. If you read this, please educate your friends and family about this crime against humanity. No human being is deserved to be treated like this. 

For further information please watch my personal videos on YouTube. Also please read “psychological harassment and psychological manipulation” and “coercive persuasion and mind control”. I have posted links on the top right side of this blog.

  1. Had an awful day dealing with neighbour and stranger gang stalkers. The problem with this type of harassment is that MANY people (not all – by any means) believe they have the right to get involved. They then gang up and victim-blame. This happens all the time. I have learned to ignore it.

    You have to be very strong-willed with adult gang stalkers and not let them break you down. Stand up to them (politely) but do not give an inch. It’s tiring and boring.

    I think Jenny Brown is right. There are different levels of gang stalking. And as the levels intensify (usually by rumour) you need to stand firm. It causes fatigue. I don’t think mine is as severe as Jenny’s so kudos to her for withstanding those attacks for so long.

    I personally despise the well-meaning “guardian” gang stalkers the most. Simply because they listen to how much this is hurting you – and then side with the group. It hurts because they are clearly only pretending to care about your feelings. They should just remain honest and side with them all the time. It’s why I stay with only a small group of trusted friends. They see through their rubbish.

    So to anyone on here who may be tired from this, keep fighting. Best wishes to all.

    • Stay strong friend…!! I have gone through what you say. It is annoying. It can knock you down mentally. But as you said correctly everyone is not evil. Everyone does not have the same mentality. I usually try to explain them what I am going through. Some people are kind enough to listen. But some people are evil and never stop what they do.

      • Thank you so much Stalkingnightmare! It’s lovely to finally talk to people who understand. Yes, I have tried explaining what I have suffered. Some people do listen. The rest, you just have to be strong with. All my best wishes.

  2. I have tried some social sites where other TI’s share their stories in hopes of making friends but my attempts are futile. I have no friends because of gangstalking and everytime I try to make new friends something seems to happen. They become rude or just don’t care and it is making me wonder if I am going to have to live my life without friends or another relationship with a woman ever again. Another thing I have been experiencing lately for the past 5 months is this ringing noise it is almost 24 hours a day. I never had this experience in years past, so I am wondering if this is something that perps do? All I know is that I am lonely and need friends or just 1 really good friend and eventually a woman who will love me, but i am losing hope and starting to become severely depressed. Part of me doesnt want to go on, but something inside of me says hold on.

    • Iam going through the same. I have not even talked to a single woman for nearly 5 years. Let alone making new friends. My existing friends stopped talking to me. But we can not give up. I go out and talk to strangers. Sometimes you meet some nice people. I also use some online chat rooms to make some new friends. I know gang stalkers are everywhere. But there are some nice people who do not want to participate in this. so don’t lose hope. Feel free to comment here. Most of the people in here are friendly.

      • Hi there Stalkingnightmare! Please don’t isolate yourself…it’s exactly what the gang stalkers want. I totally agree, it is harder to find relationships. But if they know the rumours – don’t date them. Other people do not. Also, you can find new friends. Keep trying. Some people are lovely and don’t behave this way. They look at these people and are ashamed.

        Had a horrible time the past few days. I got attacked by one of the main perp neighbours. And as ever with gang stalking – many of the others band together and gang up. Frightening and very immature. That won’t stop me standing up to the group though.

        I mentioned the nine kids on to one thing. This is bullying. There is no other way to describe this. But there are always those who refuse to do this. They are the ones who can become friends. Don’t give up. Keep looking for a relationship. I hope you are very happy when you find one.

      • Thank you for your kind words. I agreed that everyone is not evil. Only some people do this. I too have found some nice people once in a while. I know we cant give up.

    • be strong it is a test to see how strong you are do not buckle,these people are weirdos aproach and engage these people in conversation,take video footage of them, be eqaully weird back and smile it is a test of your strength,

  3. Hold on, Me too tough program be tougher is hard though lately they get my type of woman to befriend me then she dissapears, cruel unusual punishment, to say the least stay strong dont change. PCJ

  4. I say Good Riddance.. Im quite Sure they Weren’t Worth a Damn Anyway. Most people sit wondering if Anyone out there is thinking of them.. You should Know A Lot of people out there are investing All their time and Energy in2 you.. That should make you feel Good.

  5. The way I see it, all gang stalkers are nothing but cowards.. I am a victim of this for over a year now, and it has been hell, living my life in fear, being watched 24/7, intimidated, followed, cars parking near my house at odd times, the revving of vehicles that pass my house and its always the same drivers in the same cars, the brightening, tail-gating, the tracking of my movements, control&isolation, entrapment, profiling, mimicking, noise campaign, anchoring, baiting, and the list goes on. For the life of me, I don’t understand why a group of people would be so concerned about one.. Chick..? Its a waste of time and energy and gas too. It makes me questioned, their intelligence and their social behavior. Who gives them the right to psychologically attack and torment us? There is no excuse for what they do.. If anyone would like to to share their experience of gang stalking, please email me;

    • Stay strong Nicola. Still there are some nice people.

    • Hi Nicola!

      I had to reply to your comment. I am so sorry for what you are going through. Since you are a woman like me, I want you to be safe. So I hope some advice I give, as a woman who has been through this for five years, will help. Please do not assume what I am saying is sexist against men. It’s just that I have been very hurt by a small minority of male gang stalkers and I want to keep other women safe.

      My main piece of advice would be – male gang stalkers. You need to be so careful. I have been physically/sexually attacked by four men over the course of my gang stalking. My advice there….ALWAYS trust your instincts. If any man starts to go on about the slander about you (because there always is), just walk away.

      Do not allow yourself to be trapped with one of these guys. Don’t try to argue back…gang stalkers are ALWAYS RIGHT (even when they are not). Just drop the person immediately. Just walk away and do not look back. There are so many great men out there who do not abuse women and nor do they gang stalk.

      I do hope this does not offend male victims of gang stalking. I just find that serious offenders against women in gang stalking, can be very dangerous. But this is a small minority.

      The way you describe gang stalking is spot on. I am dealing with the baiting and control at the moment. Telling neighbours…”No you DON’T have the right to gang up” at the moment! Honestly….these are adults! It’s pathetic to watch. Still hardly sleeping because they are keeping me awake deliberately. But well done, Nicola on a great explanation of how someone is victimised like this.

      • I am a male victim and I do not get offended by your comments. In fact I think, some evil men control this gang stalking and mind control technology. They control everyone including other men and women. Those who are at the top of this gang stalking pyramid are the real perpetrators. As you know this is no touch torture. Those evil men use everyone else to harass us.

  6. Thanks Stalkingnightmare! I didn’t want to offend anyone…and you make some good points. I think the idea of gang stalking is seen as so new that it hasn’t been studied thoroughly yet.

    But if you look closer…it’s not new. It is identical to vigilante stalking and workplace mobbing (the OP writes about that). Everyone knows what vigilante-style harassment is.

    But because it is not fully in public conciousness yet – the different effects of this crime are not looked at. And certainly violence and threats are a big part of gang stalking. I just hoped to help someone else.

    • I understand. Someone has to tell the truth. You said it. I also did not mean every man is behind this. Only certain group of people control everyone. As you said, this can not be a new phenomenon. But it is much easier and advance with new technology.

    • All these true stories are simular I’m a victim of this illegal crime also. It’s hard to believe and hard to stay strong . This is only going to get worse but use it as a motivation to remain strong. It’s again not easy. The criminals want to control your every thought movement etc. Remember your thoughts are your own they want to sneak in. I believe within the next year this evil illegal crime will be exposed even more and the perpetrators brought to justice. We the victims need to start coming together an supporting each other. I’ve been a victim for over a year. I get angry because the law seems lawless and I really want to protect myself My way. I have joined a new support group called blue Angeles of hope. Be strong.

  7. Hello: Ladies thank you for your post
    Would like to chat with you a bit. PCJ

  8. my friend you have my deepest sympathies,I know what you are going through,I didnt believe something like this was possible the scale and precision of the attack is bordering telepathy, this has been happening to me for a while though I have only noticed it in the last few months due to my disbelief, I have begun to think I am in hell,maybe I put to many ufo blogs on my face book or maybe it was the domestic violence between my x girlfriend who has a lot of family in law enforcement I dont know, what we have to do is identify common denominators, its fucking weird right? these people are like drones they dont react like normal people,ive had kids be overly rude to me as if they had adult split personality,then click back to being a kid, then ive had adults make strange hand mannerisms then when I call them out explode in a childish rage..FUCKIN girl friends seem to be completely brushing me off aswell witch is pissing me off no end…I cant work out witch is the best course of action,ignore there behaviour or speak my mind…in a way it is sobering me up and building my tolerence level to bullshit up but at the same time by not doing anything I feel like a pussy…how do you feel? are there any postives to your battle? have you tried ignoreing it? ir are they really trying to make you suicide? my first hint I was targeted was when the bolts on my truck tire were shered off I didnt realise untill I was on the high way on the other side of town going 75mph(very lucky I stopped when I did with one bolt holding) makes me wonder why my boss at the time gave that job on the other side of town??? then a few weeks later when I approached a junction in the same truck just after pulling out my uncles driveway and put my foot down to know avail. no breaks, I pulled out into traffic but managed to swerve into a gap, I found out after hole in break line no pressure,since then, my familys pets have been killed,my family has been run off the road,I have been drugged,set up,harrassed,mobbed,pestered,bumped into,bullied but im still going…did you sign any suspicious contracts? or apply for government job? have you pissed off any body? does your family own any property that might go else where if you werent on the scene? think back to when it started, find the denominator! also fight back these people are weirdos and dont know how to act normal take the bull by the horns and engage in converstation,

    • Thank you. I am sorry to hear that you have to go through this too. I honestly don’t know why they target me. My guess is it is all about control. This could be another evil experiment. I happened to know this when I was bullied at my work place. But they have been doing this well before that. That is the time they decided to let me know that I am being targeted. Its funny how they make people act in certain way. First I thought they do this by sharing our personal information. But now i think they have the technology (NLF) to mind control. They can manipulate mind of people. They can make then behave in certain ways. This is a 24/7/365 harassment. This is a no touch torture.

  9. Oh My God! I went on my first date with my new partner today. It was lovely. But of course…who turns up? My little friends…the gang stalkers! God…when will these people realise they are behaving like callous morons? I have great friends and a good life now.

    Even with the gang stalking – I am determined it will get better, every day. And it does. But just WHEN are they going to learn to leave this alone! They talk…and all we hear is “bla, bla, bla!”

    Many people on here have said it is difficult if not impossible to have a life or a partner when you are being gang-stalked. I agree – but you have to keep on trying!

    And it’s back to education again. Tell your new partner about the situation, straight away. Give them witnesses if you have them. And then see if they can handle it. I guess it’s just like any other life circumstance (if extreme). Can you love me through this?

    Then if they inadvertently begin to perp…know that it could just because they do not how gang stalking works. Talk and work it out.

    I know the very nice Stalkingnightmare has found it hard to meet someone. Please do not give up. Life is incredible…please keep trying. All the best, Stalkingnightmare.

    I hope, this time that my new partner doesn’t perp. me. We will see. Best wishes all.

    • I am glad to hear that you have found someone loving and caring. Also Thank you for your kind and encouraging words. I know we can not give up. We have too keep fighting. Wish you all the best.

      • Thank you Stalkingnightmare. Well…it’s early days with this guy yet! But he does seem to be able to handle it. And I wish you all the luck in the world finding someone.

        I am furious this evening. As I have stated – some of my neighbours are gang stalking me. They also have complete strangers coming into the area to do the same thing. One of them has just left my home…again!!

        I am just astonished that the police become useless in these cases. Surely, with all this evidence floating around it should make it much EASIER to catch these people.

        Do you have any contact with police over your gang stalking? What experiences have you had with this, if you don’t mind my asking? It just makes my blood boil that my neighbours can so blatantly do this and the police turn a blind eye.

      • I am sure it will work out for you. I do have some experience with police. As soon as my I was bullied at my previous company, police cars showed up everywhere I went including my previous work place. Can you believe it ? When I go to work, I can see a police car at company parking lot. Once I tried to explain what I am going through to them. They dismissed my claim and asked me to see a psychiatric. However it is not the every police officer. Just like in your neighborhood, it is only certain police officers who show up all the time. I don’t think they also know full picture. Top guys are the evil one. They know what they are doing. They use people’s ignorance, hatred,jealousy to make people harass us. That is what I think.

  10. I think you are right about the police…they never get the whole picture. I am sure they mean well but they hear the rubbish too. I got that rubbish about psychiatrists…but I have too many witnesses now. FAR TOO MANY OF MY OWN FRIENDS ARE BEING SLANDERED AND ATTACKED IN THIS MANNER TO IGNORE THIS NOW. These are also very sane and logical people.

    I am not sure it is as simple as the top ones. I believe EVERY SINGLE PERSON who gang stalks must be held accountable. Gang stalkers are classic “snitches”…they will NEVER take responsibility for their disgusting behaviour. They will always blame one another. It’s time for apologies to me and to you…..and to other victims of this.

    They all show the same behaviour patterns. They are callous, emotionally abusive and disrespectful. If you force them to apologise as groups and individuals – they usually back down. This is the only way. Threaten legal action. Threaten civil action. Watch as they humiliate themselves in public. And never back down. Be polite….but extremely firm. They do relent. And never give up. Best wishes to you.

    • Soon after I wrote about police, I got a ticket for minor traffic violation. I wonder it is a coincidence. It was a scripted event. When I was driving, one car all of sudden cut me off so I had to change the lane suddenly. When I changed the lane.
      Yes everyone who participate in this gang stalking should be held accountable. Not just the top ones. However those people at the top of this gang stalking pyramid ( could be group leaders) know everything. They know what they are doing.
      Yes we do have to be polite and firm. They always test our patience.

      • Yes indeed we do have to be patient! I ended up in tears this morning after another argument with perp neighbours! I think some arrests may happen now. it’s about time.

        But yes…there is a pyramid to this. And I think you have identified where yours started. Kudos to you. I don’t think it was a coincidence – I think you annoyed someone in the police.

        Mine was so-called friends (and possibly an exe’s. friends) using Facebook, primarily. But certainly since these rumours exploded…..I have seen a lot of police cars hanging around me!

        I guess…is it even possible to hold the top ones accountable? These will be powerful people. And lets face it…..gang stalking is hardly in public conciousness as yet so they will have the perfect cover to deny it! Hence the “you must be crazy” epithets some of us suffer. You sound like you have done more research on the police side – and the pyramid than me so any thoughts would be great!

      • Yes police cars, army trucks, navy and air force vehicles show up more often when I go out.When I was bullied at my previous company, some police cars followed me for no reason for a mile or two. However I am not exactly sure who are at the top. They could be some powerful people. Or It could be rogue elements of intelligence agencies around the world. They may manipulate everyone including powerful people. I personally think they can decide who is going to be our next president. There may be a hidden system in our society. Also I think this is a collaborative work of intelligence agencies around the world. This is why even if you go to another country, harassment continues. The same script, but different people. They definitely use civil organizations, civilians to do their dirty work. They spread rumors about us so that people get offended. They try to turn everyone against us by spreading those viscous rumors. However again not everyone is evil. It could be certain people. This is what I think. I could be wrong.

  11. Great article!

    Here is an illustration I have made that outlines the mechanics of the mobbing, gossip, denigration tactics etc:

    Also for related information check our the YouTube activism channel: Activism of Care!

  12. That video was excellent. It took me a long time to deal with the fact that my friends were involved. It was devastating. I am now strong with new friends and they are on my side. But certainly many of my neighbours (not all) are involved, now.

    As usual…Stalkingnightmare makes some great points! The biggest and most hurtful thing with gang stalking, is loneliness. They MAKE you lonely. You do not do this alone. So refuse to play along. Meet new, strong people and do not allow them to perp you. What I have learned from all this is that some people are AMAZING. They will take all the gang stalker hatred and still stand by you.

    My best friend has now suffered threats, harassment at work and through his landlord. He has had cars driving around him, the same way they do me. He has had strangers outside his house and look into his flat (with me as witness). Some neighbours now hate him. Everything that has happened to me, only in a less intense way.

    Please remember, some people have compassion and morals. Some refuse to comply with the gang. I treasure my best friend now. That’s real strength of character.

    • You are right. Even though I have been going through this for years now, some of my friends have never hurt me or tried to harass me. This is why I still have hopes on humanity. Although majority will take advantage of our situation, some other people do not listen to perpetrators. Either they try to help us or leave us alone.

      • Yes…the majority do take advantage. Which shows damage within themselves. And clearly – the “friends” who do it are not friends. But there are some lovely people out there.

        My friend comes with me to politely deal with the gang stalkers. He tells them the facts and gives them a chance to relent. Most do when they have been caught. But it is sad that he has to accompany me to do this. They never listen to me while I am alone (because of the rumours). He has to teach them that I am a human being!! Which is humiliating. But we are getting there.

        Never let go of good people who won’t gang up. Children in a playground gang up…adults should have more insight and intelligence. They should say no.

  13. One more thing Stalkingnightmare. Do not do as you are told!! You are an adult. Guardian gang stalkers like to “keep an eye on you”. This is patronising. Gang stalkers push you from one to another and expect you to behave normally. And anger is perfectly reasonable in these circumstances. Bite back.

    It is not you who is out of hand but them. Their behaviour is the problem. Hence why my friend sometimes says “Give my friend respect!” He has to sometimes. The majority does NOT rule. And much as they like to create omnipotence – these people are not that many, in reality. Your behaviour is never bad. It is of an adult with self esteem dealing with emotionally aggressive groups of people.

    It took me ages to realise this. I became a little girl again…I allowed them to boss me about. I gave in. They loved it. Now I only give the respect I am given. If they are rude, I am back, if they are aggressive I call assistance, if they are patronising – I patronise back and so on.

    Please do not internalise the bull. I did. I am only healing this now.

  14. Hi Stalkingnightmare! I am not sure what has happened but I have lost the most recent comments I made! And your relies…they are not showing on my computer! Please advise! And also…please let me know if I am leaving too many. It’s great to offload about this but I do not wish to impose. My best wishes, as always.

    • Hi Supersaver, I am not sure what happened. Your last comment was on 25th of November. I can see that. You are always welcome to leave a comment here. You can leave as many as you want. You bring some important points always. Also this is a good way we (targeted individuals) can communicate with each other.

      • thank you for saying that, Stalkingnightmare! I do love chatting to everyone here! I can only now place comments when I go into the ‘my comments’ section. It was easier before. The comments just went somewhere! But I will keep posting. I am still not sleeping because my neighbours are driving me crazy! Gang stalkers behaviour is beyond cruelty sometimes!

      • Yes Sometimes it is hard to sleep because of noise harassment. Sometimes I actually use ear plugs when I go to bed.

      • Oh god yes! But they still manage to penetrate the ear plugs!! The good news is that more and more people are coming to my side, now. They are just as sick of this. When you show them what you really go through…they are appalled. So keep talking to people and they will help, eventually!

      • Yes Some people actually help me or at least try to help me.

      • They do. I think petercjurczyk’s idea of networking is our best bet. I also think having friends can make some of these people realise that other people are supporting you. I had a terrible time with a man sat in his car watching me (typical of my stalking). I know which neighbour allowed this as well. It’s scarey for a woman. But my friends and the decent neighbours helped. I do not know where these people get off!

      • Yes networking is a great idea. Often I do update my friends through this website or through facebook. I know they track all our communications. But I don’t really care anymore. I tell friends what I feel, what I like etc. Still many people do not talk to me now unless I message them. Yes It can be scary when people watching you all the time. But like you said, it is not everyone. Only certain people are evil.

      • One more thing. I am not able to see the comment section anymore either. I am not sure what happened.

      • They do not sound like very good friends if they only message when you do. You need to demand respect when being gang stalked. Yes, I think the website has got a glitch. I can only now post comments through my own account. What astonishes me most is that I am seeing gang stalkers operate right under the police’s noses sometimes. They are there today and they do nothing. I have given them evidence and I think they become afraid to act.

      • Yes I know if they are real friends, at least they should say hi to me once in a while.

      • Hi, Hope your doing well in some way we should feel privlaged. However its really a waste of time as much as were harrased we destroy there lifes as well they could be doing something else so rob them of their time make them feel your pain and spin the reason they feel compelled to harass.

      • I know peter. They waste their money and time on us.

      • Oops the more I try for you darling in our world is the more I push you away. So I’ll keep it simple dear. PCJ

      • Yes, dear they screw with or communications they are sad people at work they comment about my messages bizarre and sever invasion of my privacy I will not join them cops or masons foolish people

      • Hey, Supersaver 652
        Just tried to send you a Sammy Kersha video of some things are meant to be. PCJ

  15. Hi: Babe,
    Yea we are screwed in our messages and such we need to unit Global and then each target name the ten people responsible. We can overcome stalken
    They are scum

    • Hiya! That’s a great idea, actually! It’s what I am doing at present…naming and shaming! I guess you are all from the USA? I am from the UK. But we can certainly still unite on here! Am willing to name if you are! LOL!

      • Is national site for stalking Victims however we should problably start a company together, gather the four thousand plus targets with mandatory monthly call in participation a documentary type or movie of our plight. Reasonable people will side with us. PCJ

  16. Hang in there Targets what is done to us is absurd in a world of crimes they target us and can’t stop us either they need to go away and step off. Stay strong my friends. PCJ

    • Hi again petercjurczyk! It is very absurd. All this criminal attention on one person is pathetic. I think your idea for a company or a documentary is great! I would totally do it. Thought about similar things myself. I didn’t relise there are so many targets. Where did you learn about this?

      • Hi,Greg Gamange
        Pulled targets together for lawsuit requested names addresses another man was supposed to continue lawsuit can’t contact him should have a computer soon I’ll look it up send you his name. Thank you PCJ

  17. appolegize they had a women’s photo posted with you on my end dammit well I’ll chat and get gregs info just lost another girl and my new phone is craked still have a job for a bit

  18. Your not alone feel free to hit me up I can help

  19. I can feel and relate to what you must have gone through, it just fills me with disgust, why would someone do it and how could someone do it

  20. Mam, I am on your side. Even though I’m a male 57yrs old marine corps vet with disabilities. I am a target of this illegal crime. Don’t give up the fight for your life, you ! Shall !live! And !not! Die! I don’t know who you believe in especially when the law over looks this evil illegal crime. There is hope. I have met a lady who is being victimized today 24 /7 .she lives in another state, I live in dayton Ohio. We are in agreement that if the state laws do not enforce this crime we the victims need to start coming together. Do you agree on this? Think about this. “Blue Angeles of hope ” . The ground work is now starting. Join us please, we need you.

  21. I think Im gangstalked, too…but not sure when it started and by whom…however, Im sure now my stalking began several years ago and it seems it is still ongoing…I graduated from university 2 years ago…Now I remember those strange occurences…they didnt give me a sense years ago but now Im able to fix the mosaic…For example…I remember, when I just started the university, and was invited to a party in the universities motel and a man wanted to take photos of me… I agreed, not knowing his intentions….then when I returned to the motel next morning, I saw photos of me on the wallpaper, near the elevators…I didnt think it was tapeted there for bad intentions….besides, I always used to have a feeling someone is watching and stalking me in my university years….I always had that highly unpleasant feeling…I read other TIs go through this too…the suspicious feeling of being watched…but I thought I was just going paranoid…then I remember all the harassment and offensive behaviour I got from some “people”…I always wondered why did they hate me so much…sometimes I cried because of it…then…when being in my 1st year postgraduate studies…I remember crossing the street and having an intense feeling of being watched…and somehow my eyes met an angry stare of a man riding the car…But I thought it is just a kind of paranoya…then there was my meeting with one of my professors in a local coffee shop…I was talking with her intensely, but still somehow I turned my head and again…my eyes met with the obvious stare of a man…of whom I thought he resembled the man I saw riding the car…he had radiant blue eyes…but wasnt blond…I wondered why did he stare at me as if he knew me… and there were many such things…later, when I finally graduated, I think my stalking got to new, more horrific dimensions…last year an anonym on the internet wrote me strange things…He wrote: “I know everything about you, even the things you wouldnt like me to know..” and “There are others who are in it with me, too.” Thats why I suspect Im being gangstalked…I hope not…but when everything looks like that…therefore…I remember all the strange things, strangers talking to me as if they already knew me, harassment, offenses, that man, etc….When realizing something like this, I feel like being in a nightmare….I used to be quite optimistic and friendly, still wanting to be a friend of so many people as its possible..I wanted to be in love, too…I wanted to self-realize in the life….Now the only thing I wish is that if only such a nightmare would never happen to me…simply I feel like my life has no future at all….its horrible and I also wish I would be able to help other Tis, too…but Im neither wealthy, nor emotionally ok enough to offer a hand to someone…though Im trying. Kisses

  22. Hello everybody I am at another low point in my life right now with all the gangstalking. I thought gangstalking was supposed to become stable after you realize you are being gangstalked. I have realized I have been a target for over 8 years, but the last 6 months the harassment has increased to an utterly insane level. I am studying in school and numerous noise campaigns happen, when I am in my car I am seeing 3x the amount of red cars around me than I typically do from the douche bag perps. More and more people are trying to cause accidents around me, people at work almost seem bi-polar one minute they are friendly the next they are telling lies about me to many people. I am under EXTREME stress as gangstalking has divided me from my young children, wrecked me from maintaining a stable job. While I am working I am embarking on a new job in the hope that maybe there will be less perps on this new job, but maybe I shouldn’t keep my hopes up on that because they always get crushed. I am lonely, friendless, and have no woman. I don’t even have other TI friends, I really don’t think I have that much strength to put up with this that much longer. My family participates in this horrendous low life crime against all decent men and women. As they frequently do directed conversations where they say things that I know I never said around them. I hate my life with such a passion that I am yet again depressed and sometimes the idea of death sounds inviting. Illinois has some awful and non-stop gangstalkers and I am to the point where I absoluely hate everyone and wish the worst death on all who gangstalk me. I dont know what to do anymore. I feel like crying but maybe that just makes me weak, I don’t know.

    • Hi there,
      I personally totally understand you….I too hate my gangstalkers…especially that man with radiant blue eyes…I think he started this all…though not so sure…but Im somehow convinced that he made the majority of bad things to me…two years ago, he also harassed me via internet, wrote me nasty things, usually regarding my appearance, but not only that…he even wrote me dead threats…Im a young woman…I too would rather wish death for him and also for my other stalkers…and I was never hateful person before…I think the worst thing about gangstalking is that it made me very violent…sometimes I even imagine my stalkers being strongly tied,, their mouths filled with socks and me beating the crap out of them by the heavy iron stick…I fantasize about killing them in many possible ways…and Im a Christian…even though I know it is a sin to hate and kill, I cant help these feelings…they simply come sometimes…very spontaneously…and I was never like that before….gangstalking made me very aggressive…of course Im not aggressive to strangers, to random people I meet…just these fantasies about killing gangstalkers…but I never ever fantasized about murder before….the next thing…I feel as if Im lost….without future simply…I hope my life will be ok one day…and I wish this to other poor vicvtims, too…
