Stalking via social media websites is a relatively new form of the crime. Leaving voice mails is also a form of stalking made possible by a particular type of telecommunication. But other varieties of stalking such as the following have been perennial problems for victims:
- Unwanted following
- Lurking around the workplace of the victim
- Hanging out in parking lots where the victim's car may be parked
- Leaving messages with friends, co-workers, neighbors and others
Proving charges of stalking means proving that an offender has pursued a "willful course of conduct involving repeated or continuing harassment of another individual that would cause a reasonable person to feel terrorized, frightened, intimidated, threatened, harassed, or molested, and that actually causes the victim to feel terrorized, frightened, intimidated, threatened, harassed, or molested."
