What is unwanted contact?

There are many acts a stalker could do that could be considered unwanted contact. Some examples of unwanted contact include, but are not limited to, when the stalker:

  • comes near you or into your sight;
  • follows you;
  • waits outside of your home, workplace, or school (or your family or household member’s home, workplace, or school);
  • communicates with you in any way (mail, email, phone, or through another person); or
  • damages your home, workplace, or school.1
