The following paragraphs have been taken from the book Mobbed!: What to Do When They Really Are Out to Get You by Janice Harper. (Backdoor Press)
Is someone out to get you? Have they made things so bad for you that now a lot of people are out to get you? Have your friends or coworkers been told to avoid you, and one-by-one they’ve obliged? Are you being accused of everything from moral failings to criminal behavior?
If so, you need some information and you need some help. In this book, I go where a lot of the anti-bully books will not go into the minds of good people who will become bullies when given the opportunity and into your own confused mind when under attack and making bad decisions.
I will take you through the labyrinth of lies, distortions, and smear campaigns that commence when a bully turns into a mob and you find yourself the subject of gossip, lies, inquisitions and accusations from the very people you once trusted as friends, coworkers, and colleagues. I’ll tell you how to cope, with a few dirty tricks and a few uncomfortable truths. And I’ll tell you how to start to heal once the attacks have stopped, but the wounds still bleed.
