With almost 99% of the singapore group's population paying no attention to our dear mr notellingu's advice against online wolves, i think i might as well start a new treat and post a little story someone send me regarding online predators... Maybe we are too exaggerating abt this wolves thing, but well, it wont hurt to be more careful... I am not saying u shouldnt tell anyone anything online, but its always better to think twice before u do... so here it is :



After tossing her books on the sofa, she decided to grab a
snack and get on-line. She logged on under her screen name
ByAngel213. She checked her Buddy List and saw GoTo123 was on.
She sent him an instant message:


ByAngel213:
Hi. I'm glad you are on! I thought someone was following me
home today. It was really weird!

GoTo123: LOL You watch too much TV. Why would someone be
following you? Don't you live in a safe neighborhood?

ByAngel213: Of course I do. I guess it was my imagination
cuz' I didn't see anybody when I looked out.

GoTo123: Unless you gave your name out on-line. You haven't
done that have you?

ByAngel213: Of course not. I'm not stupid you know.

GoTo123: Did you have a softball game after school today?

ByAngel213: Yes and we won!!

GoTo123: That's great! Who did you play?

ByAngel213: We played the Hornets. LOL. Their uniforms are so
gross! They look like bees. LOL

GoTo123: What is your team called?

ByAngel213: We are the Canton Cats. We have tiger paws on our
uniforms. They are really cool.

GoTo1 23: Did you pitch?

ByAngel213: No I play second base. I got to go. My homework
has to be done before my parents get home. I don't want them
mad at me. Bye!

GoTo123: Catch you later. Bye


Meanwhile.......GoTo123 went to the member menu and began to
search for her profile. When it came up, he highlighted it and
printed it out. He took out a pen and began to write down what
he knew about Angel so far.

Her name: Shannon
Birthday: Jan. 3, 1985
Age: 13
State where she lived: North Carolina
Hobbies: softball, chorus, skating and going to the mall.

Besides this information, he knew she lived in Canton because
she had just told him. He knew she stayed by herself until
6:30 p.m. every afternoon until her parents came home from
work. He knew she played softball on Thursday afternoons on
the school team, and the team was named the Canton Cats. Her
favorite number 7 was printed on her jersey. He knew she was
in the eighth grade at the Canton Junior High School . She had
told him all this in the conversations they had on- line. He
had enough information to find her now.

Shannon didn't tell her parents about the incident on the way
home from the ballpark that day. She didn't want them to make
a scene and stop her from walking home from the softball
games. Parents were always overreacting and hers were the
worst. It made her wish she was not an only child.
Maybe if she had brothers and sisters, her parents wouldn't be
so overprotective. By Thursday, Shannon had forgotten about
the footsteps following her. Her game was in full swing when
suddenly she felt someone staring at her. It was then that the
memory came back. She glanced up from her second base position
to see a man watching her closely. He was leaning against the
fence behind first base and he smiled when she looked at him.
He didn't look scary and she quickly dismissed the sudden
fear she had felt. After the game, he sat on a bleacher while
she talked to the coach. She noticed his smile once again as
she walked past him. He nodded and she smiled back. He noticed
her name on the back of her shirt. He knew he had found her.
Quietly, he walked a safe distance behind her. It was only a
few blocks to Shannon 's home, and once he saw where she lived
he quickly returned to the park to get his car.

Now he had to wait. He decided to get a bite to eat until the
time came to go to Shannon 's house. He drove to a fast food
restaurant and sat there until time to make his move.
Shannon was in her room later that evening when she heard
voices in the living room. "Shannon , come here," her father
called. He sounded upset and she couldn't imagine why . She
went into the room to see the man from the ballpark sitting on
the sofa. "Sit down," her father began, "this man has just
told us a most interesting story about you." Shannon sat back.
How could he tell her parents anything? She had never seen him
before today! "Do you know who I am, Shannon ?" the man asked.
"No," Shannon answered. "I am a police officer and your online
friend, GoTo123." Shannon was stunned. "That's impossible!
GoTo is a kid my age! He's 14. And he lives in Michigan !"
The man smiled. "I know I told you all that, but it wasn't
true. You see, Shannon , there are people on-line who pretend
to be kids; I was one of them. But while others do it to
injure kids and hurt them, I belong to a group of parents who
do it to protect kids from predators. I came here to find you
to teach you how dangerous it is to talk to people on-line.
You told me enough about yourself to make it easy for me to
find you. You named the school you went to, the name of your
ball team and the position you played. The number and name on
your jersey just made finding you a breeze." Shannon was
stunned. "You mean you don't live in Michigan ?" He laughed.
"No, I live in Raleigh . It made you feel safe to think I was
so far away, didn't it?" She nodded.

"I had a friend whose daughter was like you. Only she wasn't
as lucky. The guy found her and murdered her while she was
home alone. Kids are taught not to tell anyone when they are
alone, yet they do it all the time on-line. The wrong people
trick you into giving out information a little here and there
on-line. Before you know it, you have told them enough for
them to find you without even realizing you have done it. I
hope you've learned a lesson from this and won't do it again.
Tell others about this so they will be safe too?" "It's a
promise!"
