If you are receiving death threats or believe yourself or your children to be in immediate physical danger, please dial 911 immediately. While we will be happy to help you or law enforcement officials trace messages you've received online, we cannot be there physically to protect you and we cannot guarantee an immediate response to your request for help.
What We Can Do
If you are being harassed or stalked online, we can help. WHOA's volunteers are available to help trace messages and to give you advice on who to contact, how to proceed, and how to increase your safety online. If necessary, we will contact system administrators and others in position of authority on your behalf in order to request that they take action to stop the abuse. We are also available to work with law enforcement personnel on specific cases or for general training and education regarding internet crime. And sometimes, simply talking to someone who has been in a similar situation and is willing to listen and give you feedback is a relief.
What We Can't Do
We are not cybercops. We are not attorneys. We have no legal authority to make someone stop contacting you, and we will not contact any harasser directly. If a case involves minors (anyone under the age of 18, whether that person is experiencing harassment or is harassing someone else), Please go to our new Kid/Teen Division by clicking here.
