Stalked Or Cased?

Today I discovered a young man watching my house. Am I being stalked by someone I don`t know or is he waiting for me to leave to rob the house? Either way I called the police, told them what he looks like and gave them the heads up on two old houses just off the road. Living in the woods is not as safe as some think, but neither is living in the city. Have you ever encountered this before?

Good that you have been vigilant. It is better to be watchful anywhere you live.

@andriaperry Exactly so we have to be extra careful.

I would be worried too. It certainly sounds like he is casing the joint.

I've seen people liked that a few months back but I think it is not the same case as you. Some people just love to watch houses for building inspiration. They might like to have the same design as your home. And, of course, there are some that are looking for a way to get into the house. I hope it's not the latter...

No my house is common so its not something someone would look at for inspiration, just looking for what to steal.

@andriaperry do you have a dog to guard your perimeter?

Oh no, that is very strange. I am glad you rang the police. Did they come and patrol the area

No, usually I get paranoid and it turns out to be the meter reader. Better safe than sorry, though.

Not out here! This road is isolated, not many walking it and at certain hours of the day down right dangerous with traffic.

It is frightening to know that somebody is stalking or watching you. Good that you have notified the police about it. Just be more careful and make sure that every door and windows are locked properly. Don't forget to set the alarm. Be safe.

O I never have this experience. If you're worried do report to the authority, let them send some watch out for you. Try keep safe your valuable things. Or get some device or alarm for yourself from store Just be careful of yourself. Your safety is more important.

No, I've not had anything like that happen to me. Did anything come of it?
