Predators hide behind masks of anonimity.
You think you’re chatting to one of these guys when in reality–your online “buddy”
may look quite differently


Cyber predators use the Internet to hunt for victims to take advantage of in ANY way, including sexually, emotionally, psychologically or financially. Cyber predators know how to manipulate kids, creating trust and friendship where none exists.

The stakes are too high


Keep Safe your personal information–all of it! Never give your real name, address or phone number, the name of your school, or a picture of yourself to anyone you don’t know online.



Keep away from Internet Strangers–no matter what they tell you, because you have no way of knowing who they really are. Don’t talk with them online and never EVER meet them face-to-face.


Keep telling your parents about what you see on the Internet–always tell them or a trusted adult when something or someone makes you uncomfortable.


According to the University of New Hampshire’s Crimes Against Children Research Center:

♦One out of every five youths who use the Internet received an online approach of sexual solicitation during a one-year period.
♦In 15% of such cases, the solicitor attempted to meet the child in person.

♦Only 25% of those who encountered a sexual solicitation told a parent or adult.
♦If asked, more than 29% of Internet-using kids will freely give out their home address, e-mail address and other personal information online.
