Who do I file the restraining order against? Do you think the office manangement is driving 9 miles away from where they work to do this to me 24/7. They found someone close by to where I live just as they did where I used to live. I feel certain I know what tenents they used to do this to me? I once worked on a police dept and developed very strong gut instinks, plus the behavior of these people toward me changed immediately. I never heard noises like this in my life anywhere I ever lived.
The mover did it on purpose. He is not involved in any other way. I told him 3 times NOT to mention my address once we were inside, and one of those times was the minute he arrived outside of my apartment before we went inside. I don't know the people who are on my roof so how do I file a restraining order. They are very clever and too fast for me to catch. My doctor read the email I sent to the owners of what has, and still is happeneing to me. You can read it below. The office property management is not driving all hours of the day and night to do this. They know people, and they have found these criminals. They are not and never really were very professonal. This must be their way of getting people out and they would laugh like hell if they could do it again to me.
It's very hard for people who are not experiencing this, or who never had to go through anything similiar to believe this. It was my mistake to even bring it up on this Forum, but here is the email I sent to the property management directors. I'm not suffering from some illness or taking any medication that would cause me to hear what I'm hearing. They are enjoying this little game of their's because they know it's getting the best of me. How would you like to have someone listening to your conversations and even at your most personal moments.
If you want to read my email to the owners, here it is. I have changed the names of the office management so the apartment complex will not identifiable.
