What Do You Want Me To Do?: 13 Years of Online Harassment (Paperback)
True story of what became known internationally as the UK's longest running online harassment case to date. Lindsey Goldrick Dean was subjected to 13 years of persecution by a man that she ended a relationship with after four dates.
Blurb on the back:
Meeting someone like-minded through an online dating site seemed more possible than the unlikelihood of meeting someone in the offline, physical world. This seemed to be true as Lindsey Goldrick Dean started dating the man whose emails had sparked her interest.
Having realised that in reality, he wasn't quite the person that she had believed him to be, she ended it after four dates. She would never have imagined that this man would drag her into the darkness of his mind. Nothing could have prepared her for what he had in store.
Over the next 13 years, he got more creative, more sinister in his persecution of Lindsey, pushing as much as he could to the global audience of the internet.
How could she get him to stop?
Who could she turn to for help?
'What do you want me to do?' was the question that the people that were meant to help asked when she turned to them continuously throughout the years.
This is a detailed account of her true ordeal - the mental torture; having had her reputation, ambition, sense of safety controlled; her whole life hijacked.
You will be intrigued by how she coped.
You will be captivated by the scale of the perpetrator's activities to persecute her.
You will be gripped by this thought-provoking true crime story and question why nobody was willing to help.
By the end of the book you will be compelled to search what's online about yourself, wonder what you would do and wonder who you would turn to?
