‘Stalking on steroids’: family harassed by endless service calls

A Utah family has become the victim of extreme stalking involving unwanted service providers repeatedly being sent to their home, according to the homeowner and police.

Walt Gilmore’s family in suburban Salt Lake City has been the target since August of a stalker using phone calls and texts to send a parade of people to the home for legitimate services and illegal activities, the Deseret News reported on Friday.

The person responsible may be using a computer program to make calls, according to police.

Up to 20 people a day arrive saying they were called to provide electrical, plumbing, tree-trimming, and towing services, according to Mr Gilmore, who said some were seeking illegitimate business.

“They have police records. Criminals. Felons. Active warrants for their arrests coming to my home. They’re looking for drugs. They’re offering prostitution,” Mr Gilmore said. “And it’s pretty concerning to me, my family, and my entire neighbourhood¬†that these folks are there.”
