Have you heard about On Craig’s List you can find a roommate, a job ,an escort and even a cyber stalker. It’s an online classified ad community started by Craig Newmark in 1995 in San Francisco. Since then it has taken off like wildfire and now attracts over 25 million visitors each day from all around the world. When an online community is this popular it inevitably attracts cyber stalkers and scam artists as well. A reverse email search can identify and locate a Craig’s List stalker.

What is a Craig’s List stalker and how do they operate?

A Craig’s List stalker is a person that is taking advantage of the privacy the site affords. Craig knew that people online like to remain anonymous so he utilized a free email forwarding format for users to communicate.

Craig’s list is also for the most part a free service. There are small fees for help wanted ads and real estate ads but you can post person ads or rants and raves for free. A Craig’s list stalker will use both of these features to use Craig’s list as a platform to stalk and harass their victims.


1. They will post the victims name address and phone number to harass them.

2. They will adversities garage sales and post the victims address.

3. They could post an ad in the escort service section and post the victims name and address and phone number.

If you are a victim of an online stalker you can use a professional reverse email search to locate and identify that stalker. Even if they are using under a fictitious name and set up a free anonymous email account like or to stalk you.

Once you have identified this stalker and documented their online harassment you can file a lawsuit to recover damages and file a criminal complaint with the police. You can even get the court to issue a temporary restraining order that will prevent the stalker from even using a computer until the case is tried before a judge.

If you are a victim of this type of online harassment you can hire a professional investigator to do a reverse email search investigation into the online activity of your stalker. They can locate the stalker and return their full name address and phone number. They can also document everything and maintain a chain of custody so that the evidence may be used in a court of law.

Not every investigator will be familiar with this type of investigation. Some will even tell you it’s impossible to obtain this information with a search warrant or subpoena.

That’s why you need to make sure the PI you hire is considered an expert in email tracing and internet investigations and qualified to handle this type of investigation.
