Stalking is becoming a more prevalent crime these days, largely in part due to the advances in technology and the ability to stalk someone online. The Criminal Code of Canada has a criminal offence called “criminal harassment,” which is used to charge someone who is alleged to have been engaged in a variety of illegal behaviours, including stalking.

Being stalked or having the sense of feeling you are can be rather scary and unnerving. The main thing to remember is your safety should take priority. If you have concerns over your own personal safety, do not wait and see. Rather, contact a private investigator in Toronto to enlist their help.

Stalker Statistics

  1. Most people know their stalker. Around 75% of stalking victims knew their stalker. This is not to say it was someone who fit that “stereo-typical” ex-lover or ex-spouse you often see portrayed on TV. The stalker could have been a coworker, an acquaintance, or even a friend-of-a friend.
  2. Stalkers do not always have a romantic interest in the person they stalk. From a stalkers perspective, they view the person they are stalking as an object or belonging they can control or possess, and not always as a love interest.
  3. Stalkers take higher risks and ignore the rules. Most of us have normal boundaries and lines we do not cross because it would be rude or considered an invasion of another’s privacy. With stalkers, this is not the case and they will cross those lines, even after being warned or told to stop.
  4. Men are stalked too. Most people think that women are the only ones stalked, yet that is not true. One of our every four cases involves a man being stalked.

Now that you understand some of the general behaviours common with stalkers, let’s look at how you can tell if you are really being stalked.

  • You are constantly seeing the same person around your work or home. Coincidences only go so far and after the second or third time, you need to consider you are being stalked.
  • You receive strange letters, emails, text messages, or gifts from an anonymous source.
  • You notice things in your home seem out of place or not where you left them.
  • You notice certain belongings are missing.
  • You see the same vehicle parked outside your work and home on a regular basis at different hours of the day and night.
  • You see questionable comments being posted on your social media sites..
  • You are receiving frequent phone calls.
  • You friends or relatives tell you they met your new friend, when you have no new friend.
  • You seem to be on a streak of bad luck, where different property you own is being vandalized, damaged, or destroyed.

Keep in mind each stalker has their own set of unique behaviours and the above information is for reference purposes only.

Some stalkers never contact their victims, while others can exhibit more aggressive tendencies. If you believe you are being stalked, call the Investigation Hotline now at 1-416-205-9114 and let our private investigators help you.

A serious error in judgment on my behalf has put me at risk of ID theft. During a phone call I supplied personal info to someone who I believed was with Revenue Canada. Immediately after I realized I had fallen for the CRA scam. Shame on me!  Since the incident I've been frantically taking steps to fend off the dire repercussions that such a mistake can have. This has included: Filing a police report, Filing a report with the Canada Anti Fraud center, Adding flags to my bank accounts, Putting up Fraud alerts on the 2 main credit bureau's. I've even purchased some Identity theft tracker software to monitor my info. I contacted Investigation hotline to see if there was any additional measures I could take. The agent applauded me on the steps I had already taken. They also had knowledge about the CRA phone scam itself that helped settle my nerves somewhat. With all the fear and anxiety I've been enduring for the last while it was assuring to speak with someone familiar with the actual risk potential.

I called investigation hotline after I provided somebody a home renovation and they refused to pay, I tried to bring them to court- hired a lawyer and found out I was given false information on the contract. After speaking with Mitch and explaining my situation I felt that he sincerely cared about my case and was quick to find out the information I needed. Within a couple of days, he had all the information I needed. I could not thank Mitch enough. I would highly recommend investigation hotline to anybody as I feel they are experts in the field and act fast and work efficiently. I felt that Mitch had a deep understanding of what I was going through and was empathic and understanding. I could not thank him enough and will be using this service again if needed. Kaitie S

Apr 02, 2018 I needed an investigator on Sunday Easter Week End. No one cared about the situation except this Company. The investigator was dispatched to the location without minutes. did not care about the Money to be prepaid or secured. The investigator took it personal. He felt of my situation and Specially when it came to my kids issues. My Ex-wife was cheating in a hotel north east of Toronto. He Located her within 1/2 Hour. This a true story; I never thought Investigator cared about the situation but the money.. This company did not care about the money, they finished the job, send me the invoice and i Paid him more than what he asked for. Sometimes money does not mean any thing to some one wants to get a load off his back and find the truth about his wife,,,, FOR SURE THIS COMPANY TOOK A HUGE LOAD OFF MY BACK. THANK YOU SO MUCH JOE MICHIGAN

Mitchell and his team of Investigators are an really extraordinary professionals. In less than 5 hours after first discussing with Mitchell about my case, Mitchell and his team had solved my case and I got the information I've been searching for some time. I want to emphasize that I am from Serbia and the person who I try found lives in Canada. I really surprised with Mitchell and his team how they quickly my case was solved. I'm really grateful to Mitchell and his team and I do not know what to add yet, thank you, thank you and guys are the best.
