Fake Profiles by Underage Girls

As abhorrent as sexual abuse is of anyone let alone of a person underage, the question remains of what supervision of the internet is made when underage girls go on adult dating sites and represent themselves as being over 18.

There can be NO excuse for the actions of one man aged 63 when he met up with one such girl. The child eventually told him in person she was not 18 but in fact, 15. Sexual acts occurred and the next day the child complained to her mother and subsequent arrest was made with charges laid.

This man gets what he deserves as the child informed him of her age before the acts were committed but surely there has to be some thought given to girls who deliberately set up profiles like this and catch out unsuspecting men. I think it is creepy that these older men would want to be chasing girls as young as 18 but if the girls lie and DO NOT reveal correct age, then the actions of the girls needs to be brought into question as well.

Computers can be set to passwords and blocking of sites to aid prevention of this, again it comes down to supervising your kids access to the net. No point in getting all outraged if you give your kids free reign on the net.

I agree too, nunyaa, but isn't the problem that, as soon as some sites are blocked, these weirdos find a way round it?
