  2. 2. Do you think your alone? <ul><li>According to the company Pandora Recovery, every time you go online, you may be watched by any kind of online predators. They watch and wait until it’s time to strike. This kind of predator can steal any sort of information from you. Or, they can send a virus to your computer attach to any e-mail, web site, etc. These virus’s can corrupt your entire computer and anything on it, and cost you an untold amount of money to repair your computer, or lose valuable information you’ve stored on your computer. Therefore, whenever you go online remember, you may be victimized by any sort of predator. Never assume your alone. </li></ul>

  5. 5. HR 5319 <ul><li>Because of the Patriot Act, in 2006 legislators came up with the Deleting Online Predators Act (DOPA) which would seek to keep students away from on-line predators by blocking all sites with any interactivity in schools and libraries. Even though this bill would stop on-line stalking, it also defeats the purpose of any site being an educational tool. </li></ul>
  6. 8. Police Sting Operations <ul><li>Police in virtually every state set up sting operations to arrest and convict on-line predators. Posing as young boys or girls to attract child molesters on-line. Once the conversation has begun, the predator can urge young boys or girls into a private chat room and within a short period of time, can get the child’s name, address, school, etc. It doesn’t take long for a true predator to prey upon their victim and set up a meeting place where any number of things can happen to a child. Perhaps sex, kidnapping, torture, even killing their victim. </li></ul>
