Where’s your child? Predator test shows how easy it is to kidnap young girls
Would your child fall for this?
A social experiment has revealed how easy it can be for someone to kidnap a child using Facebook.
Coby Persin carried out a child predator test with the agreement of the families of three children – one who was 14, another who was 13 and a third who was just 12.
Mikayla, 13, started chatting with Coby via a fake Facebook profile for a 15-year-old boy called Jason Biazzo.
Just four days later she not only gave him her mobile phone number but she agreed to meet him in her local park.But after arriving she is shocked to find her father there waiting for her instead – and he isn’t happy at all.
‘You realise how scary this could have been?’ he tells her
Next up is a 12-year-old girl called Julianna, who agrees with ‘Jason’ that he can come to her house after her father had fallen asleep.
Julianna, who also offered up her telephone number without a second thought, texted him saying: ‘LOL. I would have to wait until my dad falls asleep if you want to chill cos I can’t have boys over.’
Again, Julianna invited him inside and her father (who wasn’t asleep) wasn’t happy at all.
‘What’s wrong with you?’ he said. ‘You could have been raped or murdered. I love you. Don’t you ever do this again.’
The third youngster was called Jenna – a 14-year-old who again handed over her phone number.
This time the parents
allowed Cory to pretend to kidnap her in a van – to demonstrate the dangers of chatting to strangers online.
Again Jenna simply jumped inside the van – not even looking inside where her mother and father were waiting in balaclava’s.
‘Turn around. How could you dare go into a stranger’s car,’ her father said.
‘What were you thinking?’ Her mother added. ‘What would have happened if you came out and it wasn’t us sitting back her. And there were really crazy people back here.
The experiment ends with a stark warning about there being 750,000 registered child sex predators in America alone.
And finally the message: ‘Keep your kids safe’.
