trackers can be placed in or under your vehicle
same technology that is used to keep you on course using
electronic maps installed on your dashboard, is the same
technology stalkers use to keep track of your whereabouts. An
electronic GPS map emits electromagnetic signals that allow
satellites to determine your location on the planet. Community
Stalkers can secretly place GPS emitters or tracking devices in or
under your vehicle. Stalkers don't even need to be viewing your
whereabouts in real time. The information will be logged onto
their computer. At the end of the day, they can see where you have
been and how much time you spent at each location.
recommend the use of GPS jammers however I have been told that the
jammers only block half the signal and are not capable of
preventing the entire signal from being emitted. (If anyone
reading this would like to elaborate on this technical issue and
make a statement about the efficacy of these devices, contact us,
your input would be appreciated.)
physical inspection of the vehicle would reveal the presence of
the trackers however, you have to consider the cost (usually
$600+) vs the benefit. In practical terms if they know you are
looking for the device or have made an appointment to have it
detected they will either try to remove it before you find it or
try to pay off the company that will be doing the inspection so
they don't report finding it.
If you find a tracker at
least you have some physical evidence that you are being stalked
and you can take it to the police. You should have the inspection
company write a report that you will take to the police confirming
the date of the inspection, the company that did the inspection
and what they found. But do remember that proving you have a
tracking device on your vehicle and proving who put it there are
two different things. Likewise it does not stop them from placing
another one. It has been said that often stalkers will place more
than one tracking device. So if you find one it doesn't mean you
have found all of them.
It is highly advisable to park
you vehicle in a garage most of the time especially at night and
when you are away for an extended period of time. However this is
not a guarantee they will not access your car. If you are being
followed for some time, your routines and habits have been
analyzed. They already know the best time to do it. It's
impossible to keep an eye on one's car all the time. They may even
place or remove devices in broad daylight. They park vans
strategically to the side and back of your car do shield the
person for the 2 to five minutes it takes to place or remove the

camera to monitor your car.

However this feature also allows Stalkers to locate you at all
times even when your cell phone is off.
purchase the software that allows them to do this for under $200.
The software can be installed on your phone without your
knowledge. It can be done by someone who has access to your phone
or it can be done remotely by sending a text message to your
phone. The software will run on your phone in the 'background'
without any visible presence in the form of menu icons or
To make matters worse. Currently there is no
'antivirus or anti-spyware' on the market for cell phones and
there is no way to rid your phone of the program except to
purchase a new phone. The perpetrators are at a tremendous
the battery from your phone. This will prevent your phone from
emitting a signal that allows your location to be detected. Note
however that cell phones have a back-up battery in order for the
internal clock to maintain proper time. If anyone could comment on
the capacity of this back-up battery to provide enough energy to
send the electromagnetic signals for location detection, please
let us know.

out. Call your phone from a landline or other cell. If your phone
does not ring even though it's on, your shield works. (click

If possible get
a new phone and prepaid services. Sign up for the services under a
fictitious name. If you are constantly being followed it would be
best if someone you trust can purchase the phone for you. Be
careful though. It is not unusual for stalkers to monitor your
family and friends as a preventative measure to ensure you have no
way of obtaining un-monitored methods of communication and to
limit your ability to collect evidence against them. Only use this
phone for outgoing calls. Do not give the phone number to anyone.
The moment you start distributing your number you are putting
yourself at risk. The only thing stalkers need to access your
phone is your phone number.
Exercise caution with
regards to the location of your private calls. Cell phones send
signals through the air. This means that individuals in the
vicinity with the know how can intercept the signal and decode it.
If you doubt individuals in your community have these skills
remember that these services can always be paid for. If your
community has the will and means to position live-in stalkers
within your neighbourhood chances are they will be very thorough
in their attempts to monitor you.

would probably be the best way to make confidential calls.

and traffic cameras can be hacked into to observe your whereabouts
to avoid taking highways or roads with street cameras. Try to use
back roads for a good portion of your trip so it becomes difficult
to keep track of you using with this method. If your city has
instant traffic updates available online that show pictures or
video of the highways and streets this will give you an idea where
most of the street cameras are located.
will be followed by a caravan of vehicles where ever you go
will not be positioned behind you at all times. Two or three
vehicles will follow at a safe distance while other vehicles will
be located at strategic locations along your assumed routes. The
stalkers communicate with each other via walkie-talkies or cell
phones and inform each other of your every move. In order to avoid
detection, stalkers change vehicles on a daily basis. They may use
rented vehicles or simply borrow the vehicles of community
members. No one vehicle will follow you for a long time. When one
car stops following you another vehicle picks up where the
previous one left off. These are some of the reasons why it can
take weeks or even months for someone to realize they are being
