What to do if Neighbours are Spreading Rumours About you

By: Jeff Durham - Updated: 16 Dec 2017 | comments*Discuss
 
Dealing With Neighbour Rumours Coping

Unfortunately, we live in a world where gossip and rumour-mongering is prevalent throughout the whole of society. Often, it comes about as a result of the person who is spreading the rumours about you being very insecure, and may even be jealous or envious of you for whatever reason.

Try To Rise Above It

Firstly, although nobody enjoys being gossiped about, it’s important to realise that most gossip and any rumours that are spread about you will probably be pretty harmless. Wherever possible, you should try to keep a cool head and let it rise above you.

Much of the time, the person(s) who is spreading rumours are hoping that they can provoke you into some kind of retaliatory action so the more you can ignore them the better. Laugh things off if another neighbour approaches you with some gossip, and the likelihood is that they will lose interest, too. The rumour ‘spreader’ is more likely to start to feel that they're the one that other neighbours are starting to pity.

What if it Starts Becoming Malicious?

Although most gossip and rumours are pretty harmless, even if they can be a bit hurtful, sometimes they can start to get out of control and, before long, you can feel quite victimised, especially if the person spreading the rumours have been able to coerce other neighbours to ‘jump on board’. This can sometimes be very damaging to the mental health of the victim.

You might start feeling as though everyone is laughing at you or condemning you and this can lead to you feeling paranoid or suffer symptoms of anxiety and depression. If this happens, there is a real case of harassment taking place now and you are Protected By Law Against Harassment. You may wish to approach the police or, perhaps a better course of action would be to contact your local authority’s anti-social behaviour team, if they have one, and explain the issue to them.

Confronting the Rumour Monger

Before considering taking any of the actions above, it may well be worth contacting the rumour monger first to discuss the situation. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll end up becoming friends with them but sometimes rumours originate as a result of complete misunderstandings, so it might help to ask them why they have been spreading rumours about you and on what grounds are they basing their assumptions.

It’s also useful to tell the person how their actions have affected you, especially if there are no grounds for the rumours in the first place. Even if you don’t get the desired response, it may be worth asking your neighbour if they’d be prepared to Speak To A Mediator with you to help reach some kind of agreement.

Taking Legal Action

Unless the rumours can be proven to constitute some kind of harassment, taking the person to court is fraught with danger. Firstly, you’ll need to be able to provide proof that their comments are slanderous and have caused defamation to your character, and that’s often quite difficult to prove. Also, not only will legal action be costly, a defamation lawsuit may not necessarily result in any restoration of your character, and may even damage your reputation further.

Therefore, simply ignoring or laughing off rumours are usually the best way to go about dealing with them and people will soon get bored. However, if they do start to cause you harassment and make you feel that you’re being wrongly persecuted, then the threat of involving the police or actually involving them is perfectly acceptable under laws to deal with harassment.

My nosy jealous neighbor will not leave me alone. Everywhere I go I hear them in the same room. They listen through the walls and to my every sound and footstep. It's gotten to the point where I don't want to be in the house anymore. I absolutely hate them and it drives me nuts to live here.

If you've read the whole article you'll see that contact the police is usuallly the last resort, after trying mediation and legal action via the civil courts. Have you tried any of the other suggestions?

I need an advice, regarding with my shallow/narrow-minded couple. I live on my own, independent, a successful artist, my work addresses the social culture in constraint environment and the conflicts, history in our time. I have also life threating illness, this illness developed 6 years ago. I have also been kind to then and been tolerance for unreasonable bad behavior.... !!! The neighbor moved to next door to a semi-detached house after 20 years when I bought the house where I live.Their drive is next to my garage and the boundary is mine.Whilst away from my university degree and for the past five years now and then I had to have IV hospital treatment as in-patient. While I was away from home( detached house, a lager then next door house) they moved their goalpost.. taken one and a half feet towards my property to widen their driveway. I have offered my house to them if needed for their guest if needed during their son's marriage. I generously gave £50 as a gift to their daughters' newborn child... When I told them politely in a joke, to have their garden ornaments which were nailed to the wall of my garage... the paint from my garage wall, the plants placed on my drive... to why have they tarmacked my drive?They became hostile and became aggressive. They know I am very ill and I don't really have the energy to get into this messy business., because of my health situation. I was told by my friends, that the woman next door is jealous of my bubbly, lively personality and my independence finically ...the materialistic issue is infected her mind. I have asked the local village if they would like to exhibit some of my work related to war. I was told, that fine and like made and arrangements for this exhibition. A man came around to my house a day before and told me that the arrangement had to be canceled. When I asked who were on the committee he would not answer my question. This morning, I when to get the village shop, as I was about to enter this man who came over to my place to cancel the arrangement for the exhibition- Simply looked the other way and never say hello or how are you... I am sorry for the cancellation of your exhibition.My house has been for sale for some time,somehow not able to sell it!!! Could you please give me an advice what to do.There have been incidences, where some people have moved away from me when I am waiting to pay for the shopping, they give me a horrible look as if I am untouchable. Forgive me for the grammatical errors!!! I just this statement in hurry!!!

You think that's bad. There's a woman in my neighborhood who has helped spread rumors about us and she is a childcare provider. Even teaching other people's children not to like us. I can tell who these children are because every time we walk past they go "ew".I've had people purposely stand by me in the store and watch what I was picking up. I would move to another aisle and come back, then they would complain about how they were done with my attitude, as if they were too dense to move on with their day?That is a curse they, their parents and their family will have to live with for the rest of their lives. That is a curse they have put on themselves. If you watch closely though, this karma comes back around quickly. It's only a matter of time before the structure will fall.In the form of death, or great financial and emotional loss.

I got some neighbors who do not want the rest of the neighbors talking to me, these neighbors do not seem to havemuch personalityfor others who are non family, although a Jamaican family has volunteered to join with them.I do not mind that these neighbors have zero tolerance for non family members, but I do not understand how do they find joy in separating those who want to socialise withwhom so ever they chooses. Is it not a human being right and freedom ofchoice and mindset to speak to whomsoever they wish whether family or other human beings,God put us all here with other families, I can understand that they have never felt comfortable with other human beings, that's aright, but those who accustom to be friendly and feel comfortable withothers human being right should not be infringed upon.Who are with me? They have been trying to copy but you have to be originally so,this is why I know who they are, they are so sly not!
Little mr Puppet sh - 24-Aug-17 @ 6:11 PM
Some 5/6 years ago,my neighbours moved into their house,and knowing the reputation of the husband,i became very anxious about them.Shortly after wards our car got scratched,quite badly,and knowing full well it was his sons pals,who were responsiblei approached them. Immediately i was subjected to all kinds of abuse,Verbal. After that,we started getting our door banged at 1,2,3,even 6 in the morning. I was a water bailiff at the time,and had to make out a report of his and friends behaviour,whilst fishing.Although my neighbour did nothing wrong, he and his pal were both banned from fishing. Whist iwas away doing my job,my neighbour,terrorised my wife,who was innocent in this,one afternoon. Some weeks afterwards,his pal and him with his son,decided to come to the loch,demanding permits to fish.I told them they're banned and won't be sold permits to fish.They insisted,so i told them " Go away n i'll see about having your ban lifted",but no they started calling me very abusive names,threatening to poison my fishpondthreatening to get me "one dark night".At that ,i closed the door of the caravan,stepped down,in front of the main abuser,waited till he started againand swung a punch at him. I can't remember if i hit him or not,as he was sitting astride me,i could see no sign of blood in his nose. AnywayThey left threatening to get me back. I was charged with assault,as he walked into the police station with blood pouring from his nose. Since then i have had to call the police several times to put a stop to the harrassment,but it still goes on to this day.I have offered mediation 3 times but each time refused. WHAT DO I DOafter all this my wife is now in a care home,SAFE.
Big Yin - 31-Jul-17 @ 2:20 PM
Hi Tina. Ive actually been disappointed to learn that a charge of harassment can also be covered as a public order offense. I was never given this option by police and was only told about a Pin. I have a recording from when my neighbour kicked my back door open and started yelling abuse trying to get me to come out to pick up my rabbit he let out. As our back garden is communal, that video should have been viewed as a public order offense, but I was only told about a Pin :( . The neighbours girlfriend has a new game of calling the police to report me of things that I havent done :'( - a police officer spent over an hour speaking to me and my dad yesterday and he said the recording I had would have had him charged as a 4a public order offense, but I was never told of this option before they issued the Pin :/
Tom - 22-Jul-17 @ 11:28 PM
@mhairat You just got to learn how to put up with it' becausethis maybe just what the neighbourhood want as they getready to embrace thismaliciousperson perhaps this is what the area is looking for people who likea lotof confusionwho canfront and stir up things for you ,Just as they can teach you, you can teach them too, not to long ago a woman with two children stoop so low to run into me on purpose and then say sorry, I can see these personwants to give meor someone a criminal record so I ignored her, I can onlyfeel sorry for her kids because Karma will come back to them because of what she has done to others continually.Same level all the time, no progress. Sorry the truth offends
have The Pink One - 21-Jul-17 @ 5:30 PM
Tom a PIN isn't an admission of wrong doing, nor does it carry any criminal liability. It is simply a notice that you feel the persons actions are harrassing. This should of been explained to you ... It does not mean they have done anything wrong, so to say 'you've had one put on someone' is misleading. Regarding the false accusations the police will not take any action, it is a civil matter. And even then you will only be entitled to recompense if you can prove A) They have made these allegations and B) It has had a detrimental effect on your reputation/persona which in these circumstances is very unlikely.
Tina - 15-Jul-17 @ 1:29 PM
Hi. Ive recently had a police notice (Pin) put on my neighbours boyfriend after 6 months of intimidation. My problem is the neighbour is now going round to people and telling them that its me that's been threatening her. I also heard the neighbours boyfriend tell some people that Im 'a nonce' last week, which is a particularly concerning rumour to spread. Are there certain false accusations that are a criminal offense if they're made?
Tom - 14-Jul-17 @ 9:55 PM
What I am attempting to do is write a letter for my building so everyone gets told about the situation and at least I get to tell everyone my side. my neighbours are pretty cruel telling people I'm being cruel to my partners children, which is so not true, and I'm not letting everyone believe it is. so I'm telling everyone the facts. I have only wrote the letter, I'm still a bit nervous to give out copies to all my neighbours but I'm going to.I'll let you all know what happens

Mhairat - Your Question:
I have been living in an apartment complex with my husband and our 2 children for a year. long story short, one of my female neighbors has something against me. This woman and I are about the same age and we have never actually spoken to eachother. Well yesterday evening I was getting ready to go to the store. So I went to open my front door and I heard voices. I live on the bottom floor with a stairwell about 20 ft infront of my front door. well, since I heard voices I decided to glance out my peep hole to see who was out there. It was the woman that has something against me talking to another female neighbor that lives right beside me. they were talking amongst eachother at the bottom the stairs infront of my apt. I decided to wait to walk out the door. I avoid this woman as much as I can because I know she is drama. I have seen the way this woman yells at her children. well anyway, as I was waiting I decided to wait behind my door before exiting my apartment. and in my apartment, you can hear every single thing that goes on outside. noise basically travels to my doorway. So as I was waiting for them to finish their conversation I heard the woman gossiping about me to my neighbor. So what im wondering is, should I just ignore her when she tries to stir up drama about me to the neighborhood? should I have opened my door in the midst of her gossip and confronted her? She is a very large woman who has an anger problem from what I can tell and an even larger mouth. Im just annoyed that I have to live next to a woman that is trying to get the other neighbors to dislike me, because she has some kind of problem with me.

Our Response:
Just ignore it. If you are a kind and considerate neighbour, the others will soon realise that this woman is simply a gossip.

Abs - 21-Apr-17 @ 6:05 AM
My hell began 1 year ago with a new neighbour - husband, wife and father in law (son).I have been residing in my home for 20 years, no troubles with any neighbour.We keep to ourselves as we are senior citizens. The father-in-law began a campaign of terror against us, simply because we are 2 women. 1 crippled.He : a. eavesdropped on our conversations and confronted us with what we were discussing even though it had nothing to do with him. b. Would make sexual innuendos towards us. c. Everything we did was subject to his scrutiny. d. He would literally stalk me - when I went to the garbage shute, to the mini-mart. Tried intervention by speaking to his daughter-in-law, she promised the earth.Things quieten down for a bit then started up again as he began to target our friends who visited us. a. He would deliberately block their path. b. Sexual innuendos towards our lady friends. c. Deliveries or courier service would be interrogated by him.Wanting to know where its from or who its from. d. Slander and tarnishing of reputation - he would go from house to house belittling us, carrying tales. e. He would purposely spit at our area. 74 and 55 year old women, we never once opened our mouths to him.Instead we stayed far away as we were repulsed by his behaviour. He caused us a lot of stress and mental torture.What I've written may sound light but its not.Imagine having the whole neighbourhood scrutinise you as if you were a criminal.I am embarassed and afraid to leave my home.Essentially a prisoner. 2nd intervention with the son, he accused us of being the only ones to complain, we are troublemakers. I even asked him if I had done anything wrong towards him and his family.His father is neither senile or suffering from any mental illness. He's only in his 60s, ex army purser. One day I caught him spitting and lost my temper with him.His son retaliated by starting a hate campaign against us.He went to every neighbour to complain about our 'attitude'. Neighbours would move away when they saw us coming as if we had the plague. Even the mini-mart keeper would avoid serving us. Till today both father and son are carrying out a campaign to force us out of our home (rental).Shunned and ex-communicated. We live on a stipend and cant afford to move. There is no justice especially where I come from. Its a matter of how long we can go on or whether we can find a place that we can afford. My 2 cents......if any of you are in a similar situation .....MOVE....dont waste your energy fighting a lost cause. There are battles that we cannot win. If you can afford it, just move.I cant begin to describe the physical, mental, emotional toll it has taken on both of us.Loss of appetite, sleepless nights, paranoia, fear, shadows everywhere, trauma....the list goes on. Worst part is we NEVER did anything to harm him.

It has been constant day and night gossiping around my neighbourhood. I have been to the police about my mail but they said they couldn't do anything about it because they didn't know who it was. My brother made himself the Executor of my Mother's will and took everything. He wasn't supposed to be. I don't know what to do about all this gossiping and also my mail as my brother paid off my solicitors so I didn't get a reading of the will.

First and foremost you have to be able to identify the root of the problem and if there are any underlying malaise orbored group involved . Next you have to find a strong source of belief, try, prayer, meditation or yoga while the problem is hot on your trail (see organised gang stalking) Don't underestimate people the problem may have gone underground Another cure is tocompletly give up on the ones causing you problems, let this be your last resort because in today's worldthis one is sad to look at. There is nothing else you may be able to do but Give up on the humans like how the dead man give up on life or get Into the circle and make confusion with them, if this is not how you are you will then know to make your way out, you will find a way, where there is a will there is a way. In my neck of the woods the bigger informer run the smaller Informer obviously Let's hope the higher man rum the lower man when there is no more joy. There are people who are different in behaviour wise to another. Such people minds are so narrow mindedthey have to stand from a distance to see what they are doing wrong When everyoneis making merrydont expect any in any dark circle to see the light.

Life is a hard thing to liveit seems, make sure you are not putting the into them the energy they are putting into you This is how some people chooses to live very low, by harassing other people on a regular basis, whether it's by telling lies, peeping, bugging or using their time and energy to bang unecessarily, it's all a total waste of their own precious time, can sombody tell them how pathetic they look, instead of endorsing them. Life was not meant to be lived easy so please leaveother people alone it was meant to be full of tears, joy, and laughter, tears for everyone, laughter and joy for everyone, save your energy on something to better you situation, life is not hard for only you, put your drill down its nonsense, get some sense, your banging is low rubbish nobody cares
Stepchildren Busines - 11-Mar-17 @ 10:05 PM
Whether it's sombody bugging your house or stalking you it's very uncomfortable I has a neighbor who thought he could wire and bug people's house, he saw himself as a person who needed to please his girlfriend because this was what she wanted . It's scary knowing sombody are watching you do little harmless things which are meant to be private for everybody including the peepers and their famalies. It so happenthey took up residence opposite me just to peep at me these days I keep my curtain mostly closed, it's really upsettingbecause they had confessed what they were seeing hearing and doing totheir friends although unlawful. The others jumped on the band wagon without stopping them. You could tell something is going on in the very saidneighbourhood amongst many people involved. What it boils down to evidently you can see these peepers people want to have a life but do not want others to have a life which feels very strange. Butthey have a low quality life when it resorts to peeping at other people on a regular basis and it's very upsetting for those on the receiving end, I hope it will be done to them and their generations one day in this life.

I was twelve when a stranger started stalking me.I was terrified.He followed me everywhere,to school,to shops stared at me every time I stepped out of my house.he had friends who'd call him the moment I stepped out of my house and he'd appear staring at me.i was so scared that he'd try to hurt me.i told my friends but they weren't any help.His friends were my neighbours,soon it felt like every guy in the neighbourhood knew what was happening but instead of doing anything to help they stared too.it freaked me out.They seem to think I wanted or drooled over my stalker.What shames me the most is that after some time I began accepting and even wanting everyone's attention.i correlated it to how attractive I was.Eventually he stopped stalking and people ignored for the most part.ive lived in this neighbourhood for a few years now,and I feel like everyone hates me.i don't know what rumors were spread but I'm considered disgusting.It hurts.I feel guilty.its been a few years now since he stalked me and I've become stronger,I know if he appeared now I'd call the cops or do something about it.im not the child I was but I also don't want the whole neighbourhood to hate me.

@jobe I am sure you have stated you do not have a criminal record this maybe part of the problem they want you to lost it, so you can have a criminal record since theyprobably know s all the criminalsand their likes in the neighbourhood as friends or buddies, there is an old saying birds of a feather flock together, you can seek true spiritual guidance, I can't promise your prayersfor peace withinyourself will be answered right away, but it definitely will, after a while the war within the enemy will go on, but God can grant you the inner peace they so long for. Try meditating, or somekind of prayers, you will not even hear them when your prayers is answered or you will hear the enemy and pity them, they will long for your peace as the battle they fight is not about you, but about them. I have a neighbour who takes perhaps a drill to the wall of my bedroom,i am suppose to be the crazy lady so she can get away with it since the flats are so close, Ifeel shewantsto deafen me and I already have a slight ear problem,as you can guess there is no reaction from me to the poor soul, but I heard a reaction from another one pounding like crazyexactly above me, since they already know who is drilling orwhateverit is that person is doing. They all seems to be ready to point their fingers at the wrongneighbour as usual.Wait for Karma or is it already a case of theirown Karma, because what quality of human will drill about 2 am, could it be a paid job?You mustBe carefulnot to react because one man was shot by a nightmareneighbour, another had her finger bitten off,it's all very real and serious, and criminal, do not take part, there is a not so secret anymore thing called organised gangstalking google it. I feel your pain. Don't try nothing as i triedreactingonce some years back, and the result was plain to see. They had to ask so many not involved to be involved.Some people could really make themselves shame by starting things and do not know when or how to end it.

We have been terrorized, harassed, stalked, vandalized, stolen from, brake lines cut, slandered, persecuted and taunted for close to 8 years.We call the police and when they come, they separate me and mom and then ask mother if she feels safe living with me (I'm her son) and then talk to me and suggesting that I'm a troublemaker.I've done nothing, I have no criminal record and my neighbors have slandered me, and I just mind my own business! Nothing more! I talk to no one. I'm afraid to move out of fear of being followed and then slandered to the new neighbors. I'm just so torn and mom is too. We can't understand why these people are doing this to us! It makes me so sad. I wake up sad and I go to bed feeling sad. I've prayed SO hard to God. Is there nothing we can do to stop this for God's sake?? Please help..

@kam I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news but we livein a world where wrong seems to be accepted as right, nobody want to help the victim but make friends with the perpetrator and their children instead, what you can do is keep far away from them, and hope theyget theirkarma I live in a place where the so called spiritualist has also been involved inscattering everyone because her wrong seems right. She gathers information from everyone to read back to their palms She is pretending to read all the neighborspalms and scattering the community for her own selfish gains something weird about her. She is not comfortable in her own skin but does not want others to unite.. Keep away from fake spiritualist
