Cyber Stalking occurs when an abuser, or group of abusers, uses the internet to harass an individual they most often do not directly know.This may include false accusations, monitoring, privacy invasion, making threats, identity or data theft, or gathering information in order to harass.Cyber-stalkers will also recruit, or by default of their actions, create a diversionary or supportive mob of third party abusers.

Tragically and inexcusably, victims of this abuse are driven to suicide in rising numbers in a desperate attempt to find that safe place they otherwise cannot in a cyber abuse campaign playing out in the online world.
Victims do not want to die but feel their lives and reputations have been destroyed, and so seek death for the fundamental relief of the agonizing emotional and mental pain their merciless abusers have inflicted, or continue to inflict, or by the lingering and irreversible damage they have already done.
They may post false information about them on websites or may set up their own websites, social sites, blogs or user pages for this purpose.
They may also post allegations about the victim to newsgroups, chat rooms or other sites that allow anonymous public contributions.
They will also ignore or ridicule formal warnings to cease and desist in their harassment tactics.
