I live in the central part of Singapore in an HDB estate with my family. I have a suspicion that two of my neighbors have been spying and monitoring me and my family for the past few months or perhaps more (I noticed it only for the past few months although this may have been going on even before I started to notice it).
I noticed the following which has raised my suspicion :
- A “bird like” sound made from the neighbor’s unit the moment I move from one part of my house to another, and it is made with almost perfect timing (he has a pet bird also but sometimes the tone and type of the bird-like voices are different depending upon whether the bird is making the noise or otherwise. Sometimes I have noticed a Black Javan Mynah bird flying past by and perch on the potted plants kept by one of the "eavesdropping" neighbor who is directly above us and sometimes the bird like noise is heard but no bird is seen)
- The neighbor appears to know when and at what time I come in and go out of the house with almost perfect timing. This is indicated by his presence either at his door or waiting outside the moment I step outside the house
- My phones have more than the usual number of spurious calls. One number with an “unknown” number keeps ringing at regular intervals. On the top of that I get calls from numbers which upon lifting are no longer in service. Also, recently a spurious SMS got delivered to my phone and after that my phone started behaving strangely
This has disturbed my family's peace and me and my wife are debating whether we should first gather evidence and also report to the police using the assistance of a Private Investigator (who is registered with the Singapore Police and who would do both but for a fee) or directly approach the Police and report to them on our own with the hope that the Police would do the work regarding gathering evidence (although we may or may not be able to gather the kind of evidence that usually a Private Investigator does).
This particular situation is unprecedented for me and my family since we never faced such problems and always had good neighbors till now when we moved in to this HDB estate 2 years ago. Hence we are looking for some good advice in this matter on how to get this matter resolved.
Thanking you in anticipation,
