I have reason to believe there is a internet predator on this site. His user is BENSONWALTERS. A few days ago i posted a thread on this site called QUOTES in the friendship and love quotes section, this was on my old profile called fo sho dawg. . This guy replys back saying the following.. Dear Friend,
I am writen you to tell you how i feel about you when i saw your profil, please see below :
Love is a feeling that is beautiful and very delicate. You need to constantly remind your lover about your truest feelings and show that your sweetheart means the world to you. So i just want this love and romance fill your hearts and your life.
Loving you is like breathing. How can I stop?
Please i will be very greatful if you contact me through my private email address so that we can know each other more better. Email: email@example.com
And please you are advise to fill this form along when you are contact me.
Now at first i was like ok. So i emailed him saying do i know you and how old are you. Well he emails me back saying that he is 43 years old and he is in love with me and that he dreams about me and all this really weird stuff. Now i was completely creeped out. Because i am only 16 years old and NO man should ever say anything like that to any teenager EVER! No normal guy would say such things to a teenage girl. I have reason to believe that this man is a predator. If this man does contact you tell your parents or do not fall for this guys con. He is sick and needs some serious help. Just expressing my concern for the teens at this site. sincerly concerned and creeped out teen

Some words of advice for everyone:
* Do not give out any personal information. If someone should ask for your phone number, address, school name, etc. do not answer! You also should not give out your Internet Service Provider supplied email address. There are several good anonymous email services available, such as Gmail. Parents are encouraged to check their children's emails for inappropriate content, no matter which email service is utilized.
* You have the right to say NO! Anytime you feel uncomfortable with someone, you can either end the chat and stop replying to him/her, or tell the person you do not talk about certain things. You always have the right to stop replying and talking to someone, tell a moderator/admin, or tell your parents!
* Online predators are very slick in their methods, they often look for kids that do not have a lot of friends, are sad, lonely, or come from one parent households. They usually masquerade as another teenager, in order to get you to talk with them. Or, they may pose as another adult, even saying they are moderators. They will attempt to become your friend, telling you that they understand your problems and want to help. If this person is a legitimate moderator or admin, they should be trained as to what they can and cannot say.
