“One in five U.S. teenagers who log on to the Internet says they have received an unwanted sexual solicitation. Solicitations were defined as requests to engage in sexual activities or sexual talk, or to give personal sexual information.”

What about the teens who did not speak up?
What are their stories? What can they do?
Cyber crime is defined as: any use of a computer as an instrument to further illegal ends such as; committing fraud, child pornography, cyber bullying, intrusions, plagiarism, and predators.
This blog is meant to provide guidance for everyone on the internet, and to help reduce the number of crimes committed online and better inform the public (you, our readers) about cyber crime. We have chosen to present this information through a blog due to easier access, and online interaction, which allows you as the reader to input your thoughts, ideas, stories, and feelings.
On this site, you will be able to find contact information if you think you have been a victim of a cyber crime, detailed information on what these crimes entail, and prevention methods. You will also be able to read other’s stories, and experiences of cyber crime.
Just how radically is the Internet transforming the experience of childhood? Join us and FRONTLINE in the discussion Growing up Online .
Hope this blog helps.
