interesting how they got their material

it IS kind of interesting how they got their material, by essentially manipulating random rebellious teen girls and encouraging them to do something a little crazy in front of a webcam, etc..

It's the old 'confidence' game, basically. Only instead of 3 card monty, it's "full monty".

parents should educate their children about the ways of the world, and stop 'helicoptering' them. explaining how con games work might help them to avoid such situations. "If he says he's a teenage boy, or even a teenage girl, it's probably a middle-aged pervert". stuff like that. "don't be a victim". street smarts.

[you can't watch over them 7/24, so give them to tools to watch themselves, instead]
