I Have A Crazy Strange Upstairs Neighbor Who Follows Me In Each Room Of My Apartment...

My Mom and I, share an apartment together we just moved out of a bed bug infested building with very noisy loud neighbors who lived over us.
Now we live in a nice building but one  or two or more problems we face. One the neighbors in our building are very trifling and messy......we live in a dog loving apartment with people who let's their dog poop in the back courtyard under the porch where we put our grills, we don't have a grill.. and if we did we will not put it on ground in this building....people also leave the gate open nobody's worried about safety.
Other then that the building is semi quiet, and it's very spacious and we get good heat in this  winter freezing cold weather we've been having where I live.

This is what annoys me and makes me pissed off. I have this very nosey upstairs neighbor who is always following me and my Mom from room to room. We can't tell anyone because people would think we are crazy and paronoid, nobody would never know intill it happens to them ok.
When we are on the phone or talking loudly or normal, he comes in the room that we are in and stands there...we know he's there listening cause we hear the floor creeking, we have hardwood floors...we have no rugs down he doesn't either he hears every move we make, and we hear every move he makes. He does not work we think he lives alone or with an older lady...who could be maybe his mom or wife. He's like in his early to mid 50's the lady is in her 60's. She follows us around to but  she's not bad as him, he's like a ******* stalker...we have to creep and tip-toe around our own apartment, it seems like we can never get a break  inless he's sleep or steps out the house...and he barely goes anywhere and he has a car.

When he see us he's like so happy he's just creepy. We have exeperience this before in a another building we lived in about  4 years ago with another strange creepy upstairs neighbor who have the same similarities...both walk around with boots following us from room to room....nosey, get happy when he see us. I can't stand neither one of those crazy creeps. Like Rockwell's song " I Always Feel Like Somebody's Watching Me"! True Story.

This sound just like my creepy next door neighbor named Dave Kilian he is super creepy and does a lot of weird stuff,I think he's the creepiest person on the planet!hes a creepy weirdo!

It's just a ghost that lives over there, happens to people who don't go outside a lot

I have a creepy lady upstairs of me too,this lady follows us around we've moved our bed around the room and she does the same thing..twice my doors was open my dishes was washed and a bottle of perfume was found in my apartment..But ppl thinks am crazy but am not..Ive been watching that same perfume on ebay..then it shows up in my house..i also thinks she bugged my apartment.I am scared of her..i said it out loud i don't like her..Now she seems pissed,she's been dropping really heavy stuff on the floor over and over when she sees me she drives up close to me and walks up close to me...I don't like this feeling..but in my gut i feel like she wants to hurt me..My husband just got back from deployment so he's home everything is ok,once he leaves she starts..drill is coming up for him and he has to leave and i don't feel safe..i told the landlord twice they've warn her but its not stopping her anger..God knows i don't feel safe.

That's really creepy how long have you going through this?

My fiance swears this is happening to us. My only concern is. HOW DO THEY KNOW EXACTLY WHICH ROOM YOU'RE GOING IN???? Especially if you're not talking so that can't hear you. We probably can hear them before they can actually hear us. I do feel things are possible but I have not seen any real sign. I've even sat with Him when he thought it was happening but the guy was in a total different room. This guy is always home all the time as well. So he could be disabled and lonely. I have had times when I was home alone I might be cleaning or on the phone and that causes me to walk back and forth. We walk around our own apartment just as much the only thing is HE CAN'T HEAR US!! But anyway if it makes him feel better I will not mind us getting the EMF you can never be to sure . Again... Anything is possible I just don't believe we're a victim...

We know that the creep upstairs is following and listening to our every move, we have creaky hardwood when we go into a certain room, they would follow and make stumping noises.... We do have rugs in some rooms...we have very thin walls we can hear him and he can hear could be a stalking victim.

I've had the same experience with every apartment I've lived in. It's like they are tracking you like a hunter. Sounds crazy but it's true. I find also that when you tell people about it, they either ignore it or simply think your nuts. Those trackers either are lonely, seeking attention or just plain psychotic. Once they start tracking you and they find that you know it, they are very elusive. You hardly ever see them anymore and some will smile in your face. That's what happens when you share walls with people you don't know.

Omg.....I'm going through the same thing except my neighbor is a female ....I am as well...she follows me everywhere I go in my apartment...she purposely stumps at me all hours of the night. I don't bother her at all and I'm a quiet person. The worst thing is when I go into my bathroom ....I feel as if my privacy us being she's watching me, she has put lies out in me...I feel this should be some type of stalking law. I can't sleep at night...I have severe depression now. However I refuse to be defeated by her and move....I haven't done anything wrong. I cry out to God and yes I do pray for her !!

I have called the police they won't do anything about the noise because they don't hear it when they come out....I think they think I'm crazy when I tell them about the other part... (her following me) but she stumps at me that's why I told the police about the following me part

Call the police, he stalking you. Cannibal like to fellow there victims.Potential future victims. This is happen to right now,this cannibal is Chinese. He looks real creep.

This is happening to many, many people. None of us are crazy. My upstairs neighbor follows me from room to room as well and has stalked me while I walk to my job. It's bizarre. My mother and my friends have noticed the following in the apartment too. My apartment and car have also been broken into several times, but of course, I have no proof to nail the jerk, yet.

To everyone: Buy an EMF detector or download a free EMF reader app if you have a smartphone. These measure the presence of electronic devices. I found holes in my ceiling, and the EMF reader goes crazy when I take measurements there and in the air vents as well. There are also companies that will come to your home and take professional measurements, for around $100. I'm hiring one this week so I can have the proof I need to take legal action, and I urge everyone dealing with this to do the same. Something strange is going on in the world today. We need to stand up to these creeps so we can get this to stop.

I'm sorry this is happening to you and your car and apartment has been broken into several times. What about moving out the apartment building? I know it's not easy moving these days, moving can be a hassle. Does the sick creep know where you work? Good Luck to you and be careful!

Thank you for the info I mite look into that

I swear mine follows and tries to listen not that we're quiet but whenever I get up at night ill hear him and during the day he's there all day but I hear no tv no radio just a few tip toe steps and tossing in mattress and one time I woke up screaming for waking up late and I swear I scared him like it sounded as if I startled them I feel like he can see me it's weird how can I 100%test him or do a joke to trip him out to see if I get a reaction

Everything you said I feel like that weirdo does the same thing him and his dumb old wife. I can't wait to move out in the summer.
Good luck to you!

I found holes in the ceiling over the beds in both rooms I stuck a pen up one of the holes and felt something soft insulation carpet I don't know it was creepy

That's scary you should report that to the landlord or get the police involved to check that out.

I can relate. I have had the same experience for over a year...and of course I will simply move out this year. One thing I do..from time to time is give the person upstairs a work out. I simply walk fast all over my apartment to let them know how stupid they are; like a pup-it.

Sometimes we walk in high heels all over the house from room to room, and this sick a$$hole runs to the front and back door, to see if we are leaving out of our apartment... so he can run out of his apartment to see us.
We can not stand him or his wife.

Thank you. I have a neighbor just like it. We caught him peeking out window at us several time and he quickly ducks under the window sill upstairs. He never goes anywhere except when we shut off our last bedside lamp then he creeps downstairs creepy quietly and goes outside or wherever for 1 hour. We have no privacy. He,ll always asks about my daughter that lives with me. He'll even follow us into our bathroom then walks out when we are done. When walking outside he'll peer into our windows and sometimes waves at us. I'm so fed up with him! He's 62 years old and all alone without TV, radio, telephone, or car. Never has anyone come to see him and his family doesn't want to have anything to do with him. Help Mr. Wizard!

hank you for validating my ordeal. I believe my upstairs neighbors are using a baby monitor to tract my movement a around my apartment. She is tampering with my water pressure so my shower flows slowly. I have to wait until she leaves her apartment to take a shower. I live in Texas where its permissable to record someone without their OK. Other states allow recording only with agreed permission of two parties involved. Remember that when you visit Texas & most southern states. Also buy a device to detect Speedtek if a audio or camera is in a room.

Omg that's terrible to have neighbors to spy on you with a tracking device, it's like we are being watched in our own homes, by our stalking neighbors.
It should be against the law to spy on your neighbors or guest in hotel rooms with spying devices. It's bad enough we are being watched when we go to stores or public places where they are surrounded by cameras, which I don't mind cause it's so much violence in the world....but you don't want to be at home being watched and listened to by our stalking nosy/noisey neighbors, that don't have a life, but to annoy and stalk.
Oh and thanks for the heads up about the hotels in texas whenever I visit

I m experiencing similar activities from upstairs neighbors. She follows me around apartment and let's me know she is directly above my head by dropping hearvy objects. Sierra Ridge Apts. C107 in Austin, Texas

Mine does to and he's an sicko I can't stand him!

I have experienced this first hand for a full year! (Couldn't break the lease). There wasn't much I could do unfortunately to get it to stop. A old couple from India living with their daughter were the tormentors....they NEVER left their apartment. They followed every move I made from the front door to the shower. If I sat down on the couch they could here it. I did not live in an old building, in fact it was pretty new but the sound traveled really well through the walls IF you were intentionally trying to listen(putting your ear to the wall/floor etc) I found that white noise generators mounted to the ceiling or against the walls worked the best. Most people though I was a little nuts when I mentioned it to then but finally I got a group of friends to quietly sneak in and experience made me feel so much better. They sat in the middle of the room on the floor and silently laughed as the people upstairs followed me around like dogs. Now that I don't live there and time has gone by I kind of just laugh about it because I realize how much I controlled these peoples lives. They might as well have been sitting in a cage as much as their apartment.

I agree but nobody believes this is happening the average person you tell this too, they would say, "It's all in your head!"...I sometimes believe he has some tracking device set up in his apartment,he's a sick person sorry for what you are going through thanks for your comment.

I know exactly what you're talking about. I've been living under this type of harassment for more than a year now. I think there should be through wall radar involved in this type of harassment, but as i see more and more cases like yours and mine i'm no longer sure about it.

That's terrible that they was stalking and stealing your mail,good luck to you as well in finding a better place to live. Thank you for your comment!

good luck with that situation i have problems people stalking me once i leave my apartment i had to get landlord and cops involved so that calmed it down some but i still hate where i live. best you can do is try to find a different place which is what im trying to do. I been lookking online different stories at least where i live it isnt a "dangerous" "ghetto" area just annoying nosy neighbors i think i rather live with nosy f****rs than killers or somethign like that they do also steal my mail i have my important stuff go to my sisters which is a pain but nothing else i can do till i can move to a place with safe locking mail boxes
