Stalking in the company, arrested an employee

interno-ufficio1For nine times he emptied a bottle of water on the printer sending it into a tailspin. The woman reported also to have found crosses marked on the photographs of her sons. For a number of “teasing” whose motive is still unclear, a 65 year old man, an official of the Government, was joined by a ban of approach to the victim. The alleged offense is of stalking as well as damage to the detriment of the Government.

After the lawsuit against unidentified persons formulated by the worker, the police installed hidden cameras inside the office: the man was shot twice while he poured water on the computer desk, causing short-circuiting at the electrical system. The woman had not been able to indicate the person responsible for the facts, but for the anxiety aroused from what happened had to resort to medical care.

Stories of ordinary management in public and private companies in the same manner. Mischief, deceit, theft of objects and information. And the consequences can be far more serious than a broken printer. The damages are for the employees if  between them have jealousy and envy, but also to the detriment of the company in case of theft of information, crucial for the future of the itself.

For this reason it’s important to have great surveillance systems to avoid the risk of “teasing” and cunning within companies. Very often it’s where there is no doubt about staff and external personnel that will consume the worst misdeeds.

Are you a stalking victim? Here’s what to do

stalkingdifesa
The crime of stalking occurs when someone (often a former partner) performs a series of acts (which may be threats or harassments, but also seemingly innocuous acts, such as continuous sending of unwanted messages, flowers, or letters) making psychological violence against the victim causing an understandable state of anxiety and fear or forcing him/her to change personal habits (to replace telephone user, change residence, etc.) or even causing a well-founded fear for his/her personal safety. Therefore, it’s an offense against the individual moral freedom.

Threats, beatings, harassments, in any way the offense is committed, the stalking situations key is constituted by the evidences. Only if you have evidences of the real situation you can take action and report out. For this reason, in many stalking cases are used bugs, hidden cameras and other monitoring tools that allow you to nail the culprit. In this field, the use of professional and reliable products is critical.

Not all stalking situations are alike, so it isn’t easy talk about the defense behaviors that must be adopted. However, there are some useful rules.
First, it’s useless to deny the problem. Often, you have difficulty to consider youself a “victim”, you tend to avoid to recognize in danger, only to underestimate the risk and thus facilitating the stalker.

If the harassment is the request to start or re-establish an unwanted relationship, you need to be firm to “say no” in a clear and unambiguous way. Other efforts to convince a persistent persecutor, including improvised psychological interpretations for “need of help”, will be read as a reaction to his behavior and thus represent reinforcements, as attentions. Even the return of an unwelcome gift, an anger phone call or a negative response to a letter are signs that reinforce the stalking.

Careful behaviors are very effective to defend against the violence threat: to go out without follow predictable habits, in peak times and in crowded places, perhaps bringing with them a selfdefence spray, to increase the feeling of security.

If you receive telephone harassments, it’s recommended to don’t change the number. Again, frustrations can increase the stalker motivation. It’s best to record phone calls in order to gain the evidences. It’s useful to keep on hand a cell phone to call in case of emergency. If you think to be in danger or followed, don’t rush home or in a friend’s home, but go promptly by the police.

358 phone calls and 500 text messages in one month: the lover becomes a stalker

amantestalking

 

Twelve years as lovers with secret meetings and lies. Then the flame of love has turned off, for her, and she decided to break off the relationship. A serious blow for him, who didn’t resign himself. The disappointment became an obsession: in a month 539 text messages and 358 phone calls.

An ordinary story of stalking with the addition of hundreds of flyers and photos of the two lovers sent to her house, but clearly addressed to the husband. The disappointed lover has also try to exculpate himself for the vile act denouncing unknown for having printed the flyers that depicted moments of intimacy. At the end, the prosecutor, collecting evidence conducted through the use of high-tech tools, concluded that it was all a machinations of the broken heart man.

The two lovers aren’t very young: he, a 65-year old, a building contractor in disgrace, she has 49 years. The woman lied to her husband saying for months that she had found a job. In the morning she left the house and met the lover, who also seems to help her financially.

But in January, she decided to end the relationship. After numerous attempts to change the mind of the woman, he lost control and began to haunt her. She no longer put up with the situation, denouncing him. The PM has asked to an expert to install a monitoring software on the mobile phone of the woman in order to intercept calls, sms and always know her GPS location for protect her. Love, desperation, harassments. The praxis of stalking. Following a search in the home of 69 year-old, were found the same flyers directed to the betrayed husband. He justified himself with the complaint filed against unknown persons. But for the PM it’s clear, the man is a stalker. The judge after listening to the business owner, who admitted the end of the relationship, but not the obsession for the woman, has imposed precautionary measure.

The need to have concrete evidence often lengthens the time required to stop stalking situations. The protracted of the period of harassment could be very dangerous. For this, it’s necessary to acquire privately, before than with the law enforcement, of instruments for the control and surveillance for their personal defense and for the protection of the people around us. Endoacustica Europe is the leading company in the field of security and surveillance. The wide range of products offered by the company contributes every day to get evidence to defend itself against stalking and harassment.

Two people in a few days disfigured with acid by former

stalking02GThe love stories gone wrong can become really dangerous and are often a source of acts of stalking and harassments that lead to real violence.

Examples of this are two tragedies that occurred recently. The first concerns a lawyer of 35 years, attacked near her home, by a man with covered face that threw acid in her face. The woman opening the home door, found inside the aggressor. During the transport to the hospital in critical condition, she would have says the name of the offender. The instigator would be her ex boyfriend, a colleague, promptly stopped for complicity in serious inflicted injuries. The man would send a man to throw acid in the woman’s face, with whom he had a romantic relationship, then finished. Revenge would have been meditated by the boy discontent from the end of the relationship and he would have employed two Albanians, also stopped. The girl is in very serious condition.

We must be said that the actions of stalking don’t occur only to the damage of women. A story very similar, in fact, happened to a 32 year old, hit in the face and chest by muriatic acid. The aggression is happened in a crowded area in front of the train stop. To attack him would be a man, hired by a disappointed woman, repeatedly reported for stalking. Even in this case, she’s a former partner unhappy for the end of the story. At the time of the attack, the man was with a work colleague, slightly wounded to an arm for the sketches of the chemical solution.

Unfortunately such stories presuppose, in many cases, passed actions or threatening behaviors. Report is essential, but without evidences is really difficult to take action. The use of technological tools as micro recorders or bugs is often fundamental to collect evidences that will prevent episodes even more serious as those described above. Video, audio and images make easier the work of law enforcement, but also their own lives.

Reported for having haircut to some women on the bus

taglia capelli-2Prudence is never enough. Public places, bars, streets are often theaters of scenes of aggression and violence by strangers.

In Italy, a few days ago, was arrested a 40 year-old accused of having haircut to many women. As is clear to see, the man isn’t a hairdresser, rather, to be more precise, he is a metalworker. So, how do you explain the story? According to the reconstruction of the investigators, the man had a real obsession, that of cutting hair to young women. A burning desire that has led to him trouble with the law.

The man has make suspicions of the police because he was seen going up and down several times by bus, searched, he was found in possession of three pairs of scissors for hairdresser and two strands of hair female jealously guarded in the inside pocket of his jacket. Brought to the police station, the maniac has admitted to having cut them to young women on public transport.

It’s possible that the fetishist, who lives and works in southern Italy, has gone to Bologna at the fair of cosmetics and beauty, sure to find many “victims” to which hair cut. Among the complaints, there was in fact one from a visitor’s Cosmoprof turned to the police station of the fair, to report that someone had cut a lock of hair. The man has been charged with  private violence and illegal port of scissors.

An episode almost ridiculous, which can also make you smile. Can not be said the same for the many acts of violence consumed in the streets at the hands of strangers. Many women, but also men, thought to their own safety and always bring with them an anti aggression spray. One of the most reliable is X spray, the Endoacustica product anti aggression that allows to block the view of the aggressor momentarily due to its foamy consistency of color blue. Obviously Endoacustica also thought to the possibility in which the attacker flees. In this case, once the foam removed from the face, the blue color will remain on the skin for approximately three days and this will facilitate the identification of the subject. X spray isn’t harmful and is a simple expedient that could prove important.

Ten years of stalking by the former lover

donna-telefonoThey ended up in court a woman of 49 years old, single with a son, a distinguished bank manager, now retired, and his wife, aware of the affair occurred between the two. Episodes of stalking lasted for ten years, from 2002 to 2012 and arising from a purely sexual relationship. At first continuous and persistent economic requests from the woman, then public melodrama to embarrass the banker. The blackmail is to reveal everything to his wife. Since 2009, episodes are even more aberrant: hundreds of text messages, notes left in the mailbox or attached to the door, calls, messages through third parties.

In desperation, the man moved, but didn’t solve the problem. The woman returned to the attack by stealing mails, registering to him contracts of any kind, making clear the matter to his wife. And she has even booked under a false name a room in the same hotel where the couple spent their summer holidays, also claiming the payment of her vacation.

Man has first filed a complaint for blackmail to which was followed a woman’s complaint archived because it was deemed groundless. The prefect, at the request of the victim, has obliged the stalker to stay away from the bank manager. But without success. Last year another complaint with new details. The man speaks to a woman who feels betrayed by the abandonment, that claims what was promised to her and continually asks money. A woman that even family members keeping their distance and that lives by her wits behind a respectable facade.

The persecution ended a few months ago, when she has informed to have health problems. It hasn’t been certainly the law, until now, to stop her, it’s always anchored to the lack of evidences attesting the subsistence of stalking. Similar cases have also had worst endings, others have resorted to bugs and microcameras, collecting good evidence to nail the guilties.

Stalking by condominium and the removal from home

condominio-300x225Litigations and disputes between neighbors are very frequent. TV volume too high, noise at all hours of the day and night, teasing, threats.

Like a script, the conflicts started in a building on the outskirts of Milan. Screaming at home and in the common staircase, noise, devices at high volume. The stars of the scenes are a 40-year old and her former partner. The neighbor across family has repeatedly called for a bit of peace and tranquility, but in reply received injuries and insults. But that’s not all. During a condominium meeting was exposed the affair and the neighbor was taken by the neck and stuck against the wall while she shouted in a loud voice, “You on the fifth floor are deads, if I meet you in the stairs I’ll kill you, I have a gun”. This episode that smacks of American film, was followed by screams loudly, notes hanging on the condominium board designed crosses next to the name of the neighbors, written threatening and even intimidation sms on the phone.

In short, the question was soon converted from a mere annoyance to a real fear for their safety and for their families, ending by the psychologist who has prescribed a medication for anxiety and panic attacks. At this point, the family lawyer has well determined to classify the story in the range of stalking and the judge ordered the subsequent removal order would from home for the quarrelsome nearby. This precautionary measure can be extended at many cases. Often the lack of evidence testifying to stalking and threats poses a barrier to this implementation. In many cases, the bugs have been used by law enforcement, but also by people who want to contribute to nail the culprits. With these small cameras, concealable almost anywhere, you can record video and audio, putting an end to your suffering.

When mobbing and stalking are dangerously intertwined, the story of “Anne”

mobbing3_grIt isn’t enough identify and punish crimes, it’s also important try to prevent them. Numerous crimes happen in the workplace and becoming, most of the times, mobbing. It isn’t often able to distinguish stalking from mobbing. When you fear for your safety you are in front of the stalking, that born from a serious psychopathological disorder, non-acceptance: a rejection of others’ success…In the case of mobbing, however, this practice can lead to persecutor behaviors to remove someone from the workplace, these actions are dictated by reasons of interpersonal and organizational character and in this case, the victim may suffer from post-traumatic disorders and depression, but not in fear of his life.

Surely fears for her life, Anne, fancy name for anonymity, forty year old, that in just a few months was forced to leave the job as a victim of persecution acts by her colleague, with whom she had made a sevices company. Divorced and mother of two teenage children, Anne talks about her bad story from when the work went well when she suffered a demotion and an abrupt reduction in salary, which has deeply influenced her life, bringing her to ask money borrow to the family and friends to support her children and pay the mortgage of 600 Euros per month.

She speaks about how she was forced to do things that were outside from her tasks, and how, after her refusal to undergo these abuses, she has found closed the office with the door lock changed. She was almost fired. Readmitted to the work by the judge, she was then sent to do manual labor, which are outside of her functions, until the day in which the police had to intervene to put down a dispute in which Anna is over to the hospital with a prognosis of 15 days, attacked by her colleagues. Then came the illness, depression, until to a total loss of work, and, although the court has imposed on the counterparty to pay her wages, she never received any money, starting a series of endless legal actions. “Justice – she says – doesn’t follow the timing of the payment of bills, although it gives me reason”.

This is just one of many cases that happen every day, and as you can see, not only about the relationship between men and women, but also among people of the same gender, which often run into this problem for jealousies and enviesIn many cases, employees have proved shrewdness filming with microcameras the episodes of mobbing.

These pictures are often the key to resolving their unfortunate situation. In fact, in other cases, in the absence of evidences, the court has not been able to give a favorable opinion to the complaints of the case.

Pens, watches, buttons, ties can hide small cameras in order to record harassment and threats and solve cases that may, in the long run, cause stress, insomnia and mental disorders that shouldn’t be underestimated.
