What Do Cyberstalkers Do?A cyberstalker will commonly hack into the victim’s email account in order to gain personal information. The stalker may change the victim’s password once he or she has obtained it, and may impersonate the victim in order to find out who the victim is communicating with online.
The cyberstalker may also create a web page or group on a social networking site in order to defame the victim. The stalker may publish malicious and false content in order to discredit the victim, and ruin his or her reputation. A cyberstalker seeking revenge may even put a virus on the victim’s computer.
Cyberstalking is now a Federal crime in Australia. Both the defamatory conduct and the more depraved types of online and RL stalking are specifically covered by the Criminal Code. They will in almost all cases also be covered by ACMA and the "Cybersmart" initiative. If you are harassed, visit ACMA at the Cybersmart portal or contact AFP High Tech Crime to make a complaint. The AFP will almost certainly also refer you to your local law enforcement. With sufficient persistence, even the laziest local Police will be forced to act, if only to shut the victim up. Sad that this is the way law enforcement works... But it's the reality.
It isn't 1990 any more, and we all live and work online. The BPD weirdo classes were amongst the first to take up the online world, but now that everyone coexists online it's time for the sociopathic and psychopathic element to be properly policed.
