So, how does a predator gain


    He or she slowly
    Grooms You…
How does a predator trick you into
believing he or she is your friend?

 SIMILAR INTERESTS : They tell you that they
         like the same things that you like.

 TRUST: They make you think that you can tell
  them anything. When you talk about problems
          they always take your side.

 SECRECY: You can tell them secrets. And, they
may tell you to keep your friendship secret because
            no one else will understand.
     An Online Predator Will LIE
    To You To Gain Your TRUST!
 A predator may tell you he or she loves you.

 A predator might tell you he or she will
  treat you better than your family does.

 A predator might tell you he or she will
          buy things for you.
             THEN WHAT?
 Predators might send you pictures that make
you feel uncomfortable, and then tell you that it is
okay to look at them.

 They may even tell you that they are going to tell
your parents, or that they know where you live and
are going to hurt you or your family if you tell
anyone about them.

 But no matter what they say or do
          LET’S RECAP!
A Predator will groom you by:
Pretending to like the same things.

              Pretending to share your interests.

Telling you they truly care about you.
               Always taking your side.

Becoming your new BEST friend.

 But don’t be fooled! These are just LIES!
 The FBI has a special task force to find
           Internet predators.

1 in 5 U.S. teenagers say they have received an
      unwanted sexual solicitation online.

Victims are typically in their early to mid teens.


    That makes YOU at RISK!
Not all online solicitations are unwanted.
Sometimes you meet someone online and
       WANT to meet them offline.
                Remember Katie?

 Predators want you to be a Willing Participant.

        But there is still Danger involved!

How can Online Relationships go Wrong?
Sometimes Teenagers are willing participants
in online relationships with others who might
                   be older.

Bored                Insecure

         Lonely                 Curious

   No matter what the reason, ANY online
      relationship can be dangerous.
                     Consider This:
 i-SAFE student pre-assessments, like the one
 you probably participated in, have shown that:

• More than 31% of teens say it is easier to talk with people
        on the Internet than in real life.

• Over 25% of 10th graders are willing to meet an online friend in person.

• Almost 15% of 8th graders say they have met in person,
        someone they first met on the Internet, and by grade 12
        that number increases to 23%.

    So What do You Think? Are there Dangers?
   Stay SAFE ~ THINK About
         Things Like:
    Your Screen Name
          What you reveal while online
                  Who you are talking to

And…Know how to report suspicious behavior

 personal information about YOU!
What is wrong with this screen name ???

   Private Information
There is certain information you should
     never reveal on the Internet.
 Address                      School
            Social Security
                                Age or
  Phone                        Birthdate
 Number       Family and
            Friend’s Names
         Indirect Information
Predators can also learn about you indirectly
  They will ask you questions and learn from things you say

Details like your school mascot or a concert that you are going
       to can help them identify you and where you live.

    By becoming your buddy, they learn about you so they can
               eventually get what they want --

                A Meeting With YOU
           Online Friends
You never know who you might be talking to
       Online, so who can you trust?

You can talk online with friends from
school or other groups that you belong to.

              If you or your parents know the person,
              it’s not the same as talking to a stranger.

                                You can send e-mail to or chat
                                with a friend of the family.
What should you do
if: You think someone is grooming you?
     Someone wants to meet you?

     Someone threatens you?

     Someone sends pictures to you that make
     you uncomfortable?

 Call local law
 enforcement      Tell a teacher or another
                       adult at school.     Tell your parent,
                                          guardian, or another
                                             trusted adult.

access the survey, discuss Internet safety with them instead.
Either way, have your parent or guardian sign the form and
return it to your teacher.
