Real Stories Project
We've dealt with a variety of idiotic criticisms over the years that we've been fighting internet predators. Of those criticisms, the most annoying and simple-minded is the outright denial that these crimes happen to real teens. Seriously, people try to deny that real teens end up victims to internet predators.

We will be documenting one story a day of real teens groomed, abducted and molested by actual predators and pedophiles via the internet. Each story is of a different kid. These stories are often very disturbing. If you're at risk at all from an emotional trigger, please avoid this section.

Hopefully this will help address those naive enough to believe that the crime we fight simply doesn't "happen" to actual kids.
