Alexis Moore is a victim of cyberstalking who turned it around and into a career as a victim advocate, Survivors in Action. Moore’s personal story, “‘I Was a Victim of Cyberstalking’ – One Woman’s Story,” relates she didn’t put it together right away but soon realized, “…there was one person with enough information on me and knowledge of how to work the system to do this: my ex. I had a worst-case scenario cyberstalker — a man who knew all my passwords, addresses, birth date, mother’s maiden name – all the personal stuff that makes up our technological identity. He was determined to use all of his knowledge against me and became the worst kind of cyberstalker – persistent, well-informed and malicious.” Moore proved tough and savvy enough to prevail after three tough years and thousands of hours repairing the damage, but many victims are not so lucky. Cyberstalking is a growing threat and Moore details scarce statistics in another article, “Cyberstalking and Women – Facts and Statistics“.
Actress Uma Thurman stalked by Jack Jordan since 2005, was in the news recently when the stalker relapsed by contacting her a violation of his probation. Jordan ranks number six on this list of top ten celebrity stalkers. Many cyberstalkers are disturbed – so beware!
