    Ran into this dude in the main square by the bus station. Tall, skinny black dude in the marines, 24 y/o. He is stalkery, extremely controlling, psychologically manipulative, and targets travelers. within 30 minutes of meeting this dude he ran a military background check on me. He offered me work painting houses but kept prolonging it.when I ditched him he followed me yelling down the street, called the cops on me n was threatening to press charges just for trying to get away from him. I mean shit idk whyd you go to Montgomery in the first place, but if you find yourself there, AVOID THIS DUDE. He targets travelers n is fucking nuts.

    There are sites meant for use by private investigators where you can look up someone by name and general location and find out their SSN, any past known phone number or address and other info. Kevin Mitnick writes about this in his book The Art of Invisibility.

    He knew my name and hometown. Started asking me if i knew certain people from my hometown n i asked why. Then he said it was because he called his base for a bg check which he pulled up on his phone. Said he was a seargant. Gave me his mos n all that. Sounds like a complete misuse of that technology... you can't just fuck with random civilians like that

    So what kind of info did that bring up? Like anything the cops would have or even more perhaps? Thats pretty fucked up. Id say thats probably a huge misuse of his privelages nevermind technology. Im not a lawyer but id say thats crossing some boundaries. Id anonymously call the fbi on the motherfucker. For real. I wouldnt get involved directly because the system is corrupt so im sure alot of scumbags with power would have his back but maybe this particular individual should have less authority. Be carefull who you entrust any personal info too i guess. Im gonna seriously go by my travel names after hearing this. Fuck.

    yet another reason to refuse to answer random stranger's questions!

    it seems like almost everyone who approaches me is trying to get something so I don't feel bad when I refuse to engage or ask them questions in response.

    I want to know what the police were like when he called them and tried to press charges on you just for walking away from him. Last time I checked the police arrested people from making bogus calls like that.
