More than 1 MILLION women and 370,000 men are stalked and cyber stalked annually. Do NOT hope stalking fades away, it will escalate and worsen before ever getting better.

The cyber realm is a maze of misinformation; we have observed this time and time again with dire results. An investigator who has a very basic understanding of “cyber investigations”.

They are wasting time, effort, MONEY and but not limited too; making their client (s) look foolish in court and open to civil suits. Trust the experts!
