Online Predators

I was recently doing research for a book storyline and ran across some really scary info about online predators. Not just scary for our children...but adult women as well. Tonight our news just happened to feature a story on a dating website so I made sure to watch. They are offering advice and listed an agent's telephone number to set up group talks to discuss our security while online. Whether it be chatting in groups or sites like MySpace.

KOCO.com listed some resources in reference to internet security.

Isn't it sad how the most innocent are the ones being targeted by those perverts. It makes me so angry.
All caring people need this information.

Chelle, here's one site that definitely needs to be shut down. I'll blog about it tomorrow.

It's by a pedophile and they even have a link for girls interested in such relationship.

So sick.
