Kidnaping Due To Online Chat Rooms

In October 2006, a sexual predator lured a schoolgirl using a cell-phone based messaging service. The suspect, a 33-year-old man abducted and held the 16-year-old girl captive for five days, after he developed a cyber relationship with her through, MXit, the popular mobile chat service used by over 2.3 million people, mostly teenagers in South Africa. 
This article is one that is targeted towards parents and guardians warning them of the dangerous predators online. The article presents parents with possible solutions and ways in which they can educate themselves and their children about the possible online predators. Hopefully, this article will help provide parents with an insight into what their children have to face when they use the internet in a negative way.
