There are very few solicitors in the UK who understand online harassment and who genuinely appreciate the unique experiences of online harassment victims. Many individuals who suffer from online harassment do not know where to turn for help, having been told that the police cannot help them through lack of resources, or that the online harassment which they suffer from is in fact a civil matter and is of little or no interest to the police.
Despite the fact that online harassment is a criminal offence too, when victims try to get help from the police, they are often told that there isn't anything the police can do. For most of those who seek help with online harassment, the law is unclear or ambiguous, which means often, they feel desperate and lost. The police often gives misinformation about online harassment, about what constitutes online harassment and about the law which governs it. We find that the police in too many many cases is being dismissive of obvious cases of online harassment and by doing this, allows victim of online harassment to be condemned to a life time sentence of harassment, abuse and low self-esteem.
Because getting help with online harassment is challenging, we share with you here, in as much detail as we possible can, the laws, the practices and the stories about online harassment. We want individuals who seek help with online harassment, to know that they can read, educate themselves and obtain credible legal advice on how to deal with and resolve the matter of online harassment that bothers them so much.
