Signs of Online Predators
Here are just a few signs to look out for when identifying an online predator:
Online predators sound nice
Contrary to what most people think, online predators actually sound very nice online. The most dangerous ones don’t sound fake at all, and they actually have real conversations with teenagers in a non-threatening environment, whether it be on social media or an online chat room.
Online predators already know things about you
There may be things they tell you about yourself that you know you didn’t tell them. This might be through the things you post on social media, for example.
Online predators always agree with you
No matter what you say, they feel the exact same way about everything you say. They do this because they want to gain your complete trust.
