Determining if You’re Dealing with a Stalker

Determining if You’re Dealing with a Stalker

Many of us assume that stalkers are something that only celebrities have to worry about, but that simply isn’t true. Every single day, there are reports of ordinary people being bullied, harassed, scared, and even killed by stalkers. According to Oxygen, 7.5 million Americans struggle to deal with a stalker each year. In 75% of those cases, women are the victims. The Bureau of Justice reports that in most cases, victims have a connection to their stalker, though the strength of that connection can vary from casual acquaintances, to former lovers, to blood relations.

Stalkers can pose a serious threat, which is why you want to alert the authorities and get the law involved as quickly as possible. The problem is knowing when someone is moving past the point of being irritating and start becoming a stalker and safety concern.

You Start Routinely Seeing/Encountering the Person in Random Places

Everyone has stories about how they constantly run into a person in random places. In many of these situations, the meeting is simply the result of two people who move in similar social circles and have similar routines. 

However, if you constantly see the same person everywhere you go, such as the school when you pick up your kids, at the post office, in the same section of the grocery store, and when you’re walking your dog, it’s time to start paying careful attention to the person. If they appear to be watching you, or the encounters are happening multiple times a day or even a week, the repeated run-ins become a red flag that indicates the person is starting to stalk you.

Extreme Gift Giving

Getting the occasional bouquet of wildflowers is a sweet gesture. Getting constant gifts, particularly from someone you’re not in a committed relationship with is a stalking red flag. This becomes even more true when the gifts are delivered anonymously or when they come from a person you don’t have a strong connection to. 

If possible, try to block the delivery of the package. If that’s no possible, try backtracking the shipment so that you can learn the identity of the person who is giving the gifts.

While you can’t really go to the police and tell them that you’re getting unwanted gifts, you can and should alert trusted friends and family members to the situation.

They’re Possessive or Extremely Nosey

It’s common knowledge that when your romantic interest starts to demand detailed information about where you were, who you saw, and what you did, it’s a sign that they’re going to be a problem and that it’s time to end the relationship.

The same is true when if a co-worker, friend, or even a family member starts doing the same thing. When the questions start to feel intrusive and inappropriate, it’s time to start putting some distance between yourself and the other person. Make it clear that you have boundaries that must be respected.

They’ve Become Entwined with your Online Life

Most of us have social media accounts that we routinely update. Most of our virtual interactions are harmless, but they can provide a stalker with another avenue that they’ll use to manipulate and spook you. 

Signs that you’re being stalked online include:

• The same person not only follows all of your social media accounts, but they constantly leave comments on every post you make and these comments start to become manipulative or intimidating.
• They frequently send you unsolicited emails and private messages
• The conversations become increasingly intense
• The person shows no interest in respecting your boundaries

Your instincts will usually provide you with the best indicator that someone’s behavior is passing normal parameters and is starting to exhibit stalker-like tendencies. If you sense that someone is a potential threat to your physical and mental safety, it’s time to contact the authorities.

Bring Your Loved One Home with California Bail Bond Store

The saying, “there is no place like home” carries such a true meaning. Home is where a person’s loved ones are. It is where a person feels most comfortable, where a person is most motivated.

California Bail Bond Store Is the Solution to Your Family Problems

When one person in the family is arrested, there is bound to be more drama to follow. It is such a tense and sensitive situation and every person in the family may have a different approach and reaction to handling the situation. How do we bring them home? Who can we hire as a lawyer? Do I need to take time off work? How can we afford all of this? How will this affect our reputation and relationships with people?

To answer the first question and ease your mind on that part, we at California Bail Bond Store are the solution. It is likely that your loved one is offered bail, meaning paying an amount of money to be released from jail. This can be by a cash bond, paying 100% of the bail amount directly to the court, or hiring a professional bail bondsman. The bail bondsman will issue a bail bond, which costs only 10% of the full bail amount, and paid over a period of time. The 10% is not refundable, but even then, most people find using a bail bondsman rather than cash bail is more affordable and ideal.

California Bail Bond Store can help you bail your loved one out of jail quickly, returning them home to you where they belong. You will be there to welcome them home, to offer your love and support, and to be ready to work together to plan ahead for the next steps.

Cash Bail vs. Bail Bond – Which Is Better for You Financially

Between cash bail and bail bonds, there is not necessarily a better way to bail out of jail. They both produce the same outcome. However, deciding between the two is mostly dependent on your financial circumstances.

People who use cash bail have to pay the entire bail amount first, then the defendant can get out of jail. For bail bonds, the cost is only 10% of the full bail amount and that price is paid over a set period of time that extends beyond the defendant’s release from jail. Once the bail bond paperwork is finalized and processed, the defendant is out of jail and the payments will continue to move along as scheduled. There is no payment plan for cash bail.

Let us be clear again, one is not a more respected way of bailing out of jail than the other. Though bail bonds are less of a financial strain, even celebrities and millionaires will prefer them. It has nothing to do with social class, only which option better fits your financial situation.

To learn more about the differences between bail bonds and cash bonds, or to get a free consultation for a bail bond, feel free to contact California’s most sought-after bail bonds company, California Bail Bond Store.

We have licensed bail agents available 24/7, both online and at 877-793-2245.

The Price of Collateral

Many bail bonds will require collateral in order to be authenticated. Collateral is typically property, vehicles, and valuables that a person pledges to the bail bond company. The bail bonds company uses collateral as insurance.

You see, the big thing about bail bonds over cash bonds is that a bail bond costs 90% less than cash bonds. The defendant will need to show up for court in both cases, but for bail bonds, the collateral acts as a big incentive for the defendant to honor this agreement. If the defendant fails at showing up for court, the bail bonds company can, and will, claim the collateral from the original owner. The original owner loses whatever property, vehicles, and/ or valuables they pledged. Knowing they have loved ones putting so much at stake for them is the incentive for the defendant to go to court. Otherwise, the loss of collateral is at the fault of the defendant.

To find out what collateral is accepted, and to get all your other bail bonds related questions answered. We urge you to contact a professional from California Bail Bond Store now online or at 877-793-2245.

California Bail Bond Store Will Save Your Loved One

Some people think that those who are arrested do not need saving, that they are right where they should be. After all, they were arrested for doing something bad. By having these people arrested and in jail, the public is safe.

However, this is not how it always is. Not every arrestee is a dangerous, violent criminal. Not every arrestee is responsible for their own arrest, maybe they were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Not every arrestee deserves to sit in jail as they wait for the outcome of their trial. That is just not fair.

We understand that if you are not in any way involved with a crime, you just hear about them on the news, then you probably do think that whoever the police arrested should be in jail. However, if you have a loved one in jail, you will see the situation as we do, and want your loved one out of jail immediately.

Our team here at California Bail Bond Store can help you with that. All you need to do is contact a team member online or at 877-793-2245 and be ready with the name of your loved one who is in jail, where they are being held, and what their bail amount is.
