Dont Get Caught in the Web Thursday SlyKid: Hey Cool. Hows it goin? Coolgrrrl: Boring. Nothing to do, just hangn. SlyKid: UR always on. Im only allowed on-line an hour a day. Coolgrrrl: What my parents dont know… SlyKid: Theyre not there? Coolgrrrl: Nope. Not til about 6.
Monday Coolgrrl: Guess what I did on Saturday? SlyKid: U met the President? Coolgrrl: No. Got tix to Kelly Clarkson at the Dome for my B-day. SlyKid: Last concert I wanted to go to was an hour away. Couldnt get my brother to drive me. Coolgrrl: Oh, the Dome is only about 10 min. from my house I almost could have walked. SlyKid: Whod U go with? Should I be jealous?
Coolgrrrl: No. Just Krista and Heather SlyKid: BTW, Happy B-day. How many candles? Coolgrrrl: 12. The cake was awesome. My mom spelled out Angie with chocolate chips. SlyKid: Wish I could have seen that. I didnt get a cake when I turned 14 last month. Coolgrrrl: ohhhh…thats sad….Moms home. Gotta run. SlyKid: Later.
Wednesday Slykid: Where U been? Missed ya yesterday. Coolgrrrl: Soccer game. Slykid: Really, I play too. #6 for the Franklin Cougars. Coolgrrrl: Thats funny. Im #7 for the Jefferson Wildcats. Two presidents. Two cats. Slykid: We lost our game. Coolgrrl: Bummer…
What do you think? Is Coolgrrrl using the Internet safely?
If you said no, youre right. After just three conversations SlyKid now knows a lot about Coolgrrrl. Her name is Angie. She is 12 years old. She lives close to the Dome. To find out where exactly that is, all he would have to do is look up Kelly Clarksons concert tour schedule. She is home alone until 6:00 p.m. She goes to Franklin Middle School She is on the school soccer team and her number is 7.
On the Internet people can describe themselves any way they want. SlyKid might describe himself as a 8 th grade student, but he really could be a 44-year-old man. If SlyKid is a bad guy and he lives in Angies area or can get there, he could easily find out her soccer schedule, identify her during a game, and follow her home. Angie has unknowingly put herself at risk. Source: Current Health 1, November 2002, Vol. 26 Issue 3, p28, 1p.
