  • Send unwanted gifts, letters, cards, texts, e-mails, or messages?
  • Monitor your phone calls or computer use?
  • Use technology, like hidden cameras or GPS, to track where you go?
  • Find out about you by using public records or on-line methods, going through your garbage, or contacting friends, family, neighbors, or co-workers?
