Anyone come across this? Themselves, friends, anyone they know?
Not personally but it must be terrifying for the victims.
I ve heard its sometimes orchestrated by big corporations in a clandestine way to target individuals who have spoken out truthfully about that corporation.
That’s dangerous territory .
I doubt itI think it can be orchestrated by anyone with criminal connections or with the money or influence to use people with criminal connections. In terms of motives, it can be jealousy, revenge, financial or some other motive that is intended to break someone down to the point of suicide or not being able to function or to pay money.
Symptoms include: property vandalised, sensitisation to certain colours or noises intended to get you to react adversely to such sensitisations in every day life so that you can be set you up for criminal charges, 'brighting' which is a term used for car headlights to shine on you as you're in the street, isolation from friends and family, lies spread about you to get others to join in and isolate you from others, bribing and blackmailing of strangers to join in, following you on foot or in car and making sure you know you're being followed, stealing small items from your home and replacing them somewhere else to make you think you're imagining things, it's very common for these people to gain access to your home, car or workplace, tracking your mobile phone and car, knowing your movements so that they know you'll be turning up at a supermarket in the next half an hour and having someone in the car park already there waiting to follow you in and make it look like a chance encounter while repeating something to someone else about you to fuck with your mind as you're wondering how can someone in a supermarket who you've never met know something about you and why are they talking to another stranger about it. All sorts of sustained stalking by a determined group. These people tap your phone, access every mail you've ever sent, and so they know everything about you before they start so they aim to have something on you to use as a stick to keep you quiet about a reign of psychological destruction and it often starts long before you realise it's going on.
Just wondered if anyone has had experience of this or knows someone who has?
Really? Interesting thread but seems quite far fetched to be common. I’m certain it would happen but I’d be surprised if it was a regular occurrence.
Sounds a bit Hollywood

The scenario you speak of would cost an absolute fortune and the people involved won't be minimum wage ,I also deliver takeaways ,type people .Who on here would warrant so much expense ?
Or rather it's not as common as you think ,if you've pissed off criminals they don't shine headlights at you and move your lawnmower. Even ex husbands of your new lass just punch you .I know, seems unbelievable, and a huge waste of time and effort. But, reading about it, it seems to be a craze for some people, a bit like internet group bullying where someone takes their life and those who targeted the individual get a perverse kick out of it, that sort of thing; or as a revenge ploy for some group, usually against whistle blowers, or to aid a protection racket. Been reading about it and not as uncommon as you would think.
