I saw an article on gang-stalking that came from your website. I am being gang-stalked. This is by a nasty woman and a core group of 3-4 of her friends who are charming/coercing others (including strangers) to help. My home has been broken into numerous times while I was out or at work. The woman is going through a divorce and is erroneously claiming I am involved with her soon-to-be ex-husband. There's a little bit of truth with a heap of lies mixed in.
It is slow torture, and I was forced to quit my job. These women are part of a much larger social group that I was a member of for 18 years (a big ski club). For the record, I have not seen the guy in person in over a year (when they were still happily married), and had a brief phone conversation nine months ago to try to re-establish a friendship (he is friends with people I had been friends with for many years).
I think there may be hidden camera(s), bugs, landline phone taps at home, and remote cell phone monitoring (listen, track, email, texts, etc). I worked in a public place and was repeatedly photographed with no ability to stop it. People were coming up to me at work and harassing me (proxy strangers).
I need help! Any guidance on how to proceed? Need to find out how to get my place sweeped for bugs/cameras. Need to find landline tap. Phone company did not find anything outside but the stalkers may have overheard phone conversation with phone company, removed the tap, and put it back. I've heard clicking, echoes, and static on my home phone for months.
Will changing my phone numbers help? I live in Denver, and the only electricians I know are part of the same ski club. Everyone socializes (and gossips) together, so it's hard to find someone to trust.
No one believes this stuff can happen, or that these people would ever do stuff like this.
The primary abusers definitely have the problems with anger management, drug/alcohol abuse, etc. , but can charm everyone. I have had run-ins with them before, but I thought I had mended at least 2 of the 3-4 fences a few years ago.
I was targeted by them. Someone from that core group engaged in an email conversation with a phony email impersonating someone else (similar email address). My other email and the phony email are both yahoo addresses. Yahoo claims they cannot recover deleted email conversations unless they are less than 7 days old (mine were from Oct.-Dec? 2013.) I'm sure yahoo does not get rid of anything but they put a "policy" in place. There must be a way to get that email conversation back, and find the source of who created the bogus email address.
My attached neighbor on one side next door moved away. The place is vacant (for sale), and people may be coming in from there (attic) as well. I found some people who potentially could help (have the right knowledge) but won't.
I would be grateful for any guidance you can give me. This email is not my primary or secondary, and I have not given it to anyone connected to these people. I don't know if any of my phone lines are safe.

I don't specialize in this, but I can think of some practical, common sense ideas that may help.
The internet is your friend. Use it.
1. Expose them. Put a huge spotlight on these people and watch what happens. Have a cell phone with camera and audio recorder functions with you whenever you go anywhere, including work. Memorize and practice how to turn on the camera or audio recorder function so you can do it quickly when the opportunity arises. Take photos of the culprits at every opportunity and try to zoom in as close to the face as possible. Record any conversation you have with them. Take photos of where they live and work. Publicize the name and address of their employer and the company they work for. Plaster their photos, names and addresses all over the internet with an explanation of how they are harassing you. The names of each person has to be listed in the keywords of every article posted so whenever someone does a search for their name, your articles will come up. This, they won't like.
2. Go down to Superior Court and find out how to apply for a restraining order. Tell the clerk these individuals are stalking and harassing you constantly. They are stressing you out and you fear for your life. Get a restrain order against every single one of them involved. The order should forbid any sort of contact, whether in person, by phone, or email , or through a third party, etc. Put any new player on notice that you will be court restraining and suing anyone involved with harassing you in any way and on any level. When they contact you, you call the police and have them arrested for violating the restraining order. You may have to get a temporary restraining order to start. And then convert to a permanent restraining order as they continue to harass you. Often the police are in the loop on a targeted person, but not always (however, Denver police are BAD NEWS, so be careful). It depends on who is harassing you and how much pull they have. This woman sounds like a low level nobody, so the cops may help you. If not, the restraining order can't be ignored by them because if it is, you can sue the police department for negligence and dereliction of duty, and they don't like that because you might win and get money out of them. And it looks bad in the newspaper.
3. Get free legal advice over the internet or from a legal aid group on how to file a pro se lawsuit against the woman who is harassing you the most and the main culprits helping her. Sue them for damages, for loss of job, for mental and emotion stress, emotional cruelty, anxiety, worry, stress induced insomnia, etc. Find out what they own and sue them for everything they have. If you can find a lawyer outside of Denver who will sue on a contingency basis, all the better. Forget local attorneys.
4. You need to think of LEGAL ways to put pressure on them so they will back off. As it is, they are getting away with everything, so they have no incentive to stop. You have to put hard pressure on them. The spotlight will do it in most cases, but they will try to retaliate it, so be prepared for that and expose them at every turn.
I'll post your story and any photos you send.
For more privacy, make phone calls outside of the house with a prepaid cell phone. Send handwritten letters with a phony return address to people you want to contact with private info that you don't want them to hear. Send as flat rate Priority envelope (large 9x12 inch cardboard envelope) and sandwich your letter inside aluminum foil and track the delivery over the internet.
You might find a local amateur who can sweep your place for a reasonable cost. It's easier to just go outside to make phone calls. You can't trust what the phone company tells you. You can get internet based phone service like Skype that the NSA can tap, but she can't.
