Pedophile tactics

This is the modus operandi: pedophiles go online, meet and flatter targets, lie about their ages and/or identities, pretend to be young and/or wealthy and/or celebrities, gain children’s trust, and then abuse them by cajoling them, whether it’s by talking them into taking lewd selfies, creating Skype accounts and then convincing them to strip in front of a camera, sextorting them by threatening to tell parents or share images publicly, or even, in some cases, meeting in real life.

At this point, both Google and Facebook are paving the way for preteen customers. Parents, know who your child is talking to online!
