Sex As A Weapon: A Hard Look at Sextortion

sextortion.fantasy

 

This week we are going to examine the case of Donald Kelly, a 36-year-old man from Manhattan, New York, who was indicted on charges of enticing a minor to engage in illegal sex acts, sexual exploitation of a minor and possession of child pornography. In this case the victim was an EIGHT YEAR OLD GIRL!

We are entering an age where a child’s first sexual experience may very well be a virtual sexual experience. Sextortion is the act of blackmail with a photo. Today thousands of sextortion-rings prey on available and vulnerable minors. They get sucked in believing they are communicating with another young boy or girl, but in-fact it is more likely a 52-year-old registered sex offender who is part of a large-scale ring of pedophiles preying on innocent young children. Many parents seem oblivious to the reality of their child’s situation believing their child is smarter than most and that they will be careful. The result: Instead of waiting for the child to grow up in a world of innocence, they EXPERIENCE SEX as a WEAPON. Their lives are changed forever. So who is at fault here?

In this show we will explore the statistics of how often this is happening and, even more importantly, we will talk about the impact on the next generation and what can be done to prevent it.

Join us Thursday, January 11, 2018 at 7a.m. PST on VOICE AMERICA – Variety Channel as we take an in-depth look at the impact of sextortion.

The Impact of Illegal Immigration on
Human Trafficking

 

Illegal-Immigration-Crossing-The-Rio-Grande2

When it comes to mass migration of individuals around the globe, we are living in historical times. Europe is seeing a major influx of impoverished and displaced persons arriving from foreign cultures. The U.S. is grappling with “the wall” and how to deal with the massive entry of people from Latin America and Mexico, who are seeking to escape violence, crime and poverty.

This week California legislators (not the people) voted to make California a “Sanctuary State” ignoring long standing immigration laws. Lost in the dialogue is the reality of what happens to a vulnerable undocumented adult or child alien (with few resources), who has paid a cartel member (coyote) to cross the border illegally and is now being extorted. For many, their family members back home are being threatened with violence if they don’t come up with more money.

Few of us see the underground world an illegal migrant has to navigate. They fear law enforcement and being deported. They fear being violated both financially and sexually by gang or organized crime members. Few can go back home. They have paid with everything they had. Many become victims of sex and labor trafficking. Their dream of starting a new life becomes a nightmare.

Join us Thursday, January 4, 2018 at 7a.m. PST on VOICE AMERICA – Variety Channel as we take an in-depth look at the impact of illegal immigration on human trafficking.

The Marketing of Commercial Sex Services:
How It Is Done and How It Is Changing

The Internet has spawned thousands of websites that promote commercial sex, escort services, erotic pornography and steamy chat lines. One of the most infamous of these is Backpage.com.

In Riverside County, California alone there are an estimated 15,000 to 18,000 ads on Backpage per year that offer a connection for hooking up. And that is just for ”Women Dating Men,” and does not include the many other categories such as Gay and Transgender hookups.

Backpage has long been a target of activists, NGO’s, Law Enforcement and Congress. Backpage is, in fact, the “electronic auctioning of people’s sexual services,” while veiling themselves as only being in the advertising business. They insist that they are not responsible for what people sell once they advertise on their site.

Millions of dollars have been spent trying to put Backpage out of business. Organizations launched complaints resulting in Backpage no longer able to accept credit cards. However, with credit cards, law enforcement could at least get a search warrant and trace the money. Now sex trafficking investigations have become harder as Backpage began using Bitcoin, which can be anonymous and non-traceable.

Technology companies spent millions developing algorithms to track keywords and emojis on the Backpage ads to help identify potential victims of sex trafficking (Thank You, Thorn). BUT, Backpage CHANGED again. Now they only offer phone numbers on the ads. Yes, just like the White Pages… So what is wrong with THAT?

Join us Thursday, December 28, 2017 at 7a.m. PST on VOICE AMERICA – Variety Channel as we take an in-depth look at how the online marketing of commercial sex is changing.

The Global Online Video Games Market to Reach Nearly One Trillion Dollars in 2016

online-video-games

This week we will be rebroadcasting one of our most listened to shows to date!
Original air date December 22, 2016

It is the time of year where families gather, we all eat too much, and there are gifts and toys overflowing. Throughout the world, we all relax and indulge ourselves, including our children. It is also the time of year where young people receive cell phones, iPads, Xbox, PS4 and other video games. Most of us have no comprehension of what is in the game when we purchase them. But, our kids are begging and pleading and assuring us that “everyone” but them has this latest technology and “they don’t want to be left out.” And so, we capitulate and pray that our child(ren) will be an exception to the rule, use good judgement and be safe while using this technology.

This week on Exploited – Crimes Against Humanity, Million Kids will explore how predators use online gaming and chat rooms to access, groom, recruit and exploit our young people. We will examine the impact of animated sex (soon to be virtual reality sex) and violence, the occult, and  sorcery. We will look at the Tetris Effect as a player is obsessed with score-keeping and performance. And, we will look at the need of the player to be “part of the team” — rising and falling with acceptance and rejection based on his or her performance in the game and support of the team. We will also look at the addiction process of a fantasy world.

Join us Thursday, December 21, 2017 at 7a.m. PST on VOICE AMERICA – Variety Channel as we take an inside look at the phenomena of online video gaming and how to use technology to build a dialogue and keep your child safe from predators. And, we will look at resources for parents if their child is headed for trouble.

Lynndel “Lynn” Edgington, Founder/President, Eagle Research Associates, Inc. | Author: Robbing You With A Keyboard Instead Of A Gun – Cyber Crime How They Do It

Understanding Cyber-Currencies and
Money Laundering and the Role They Play in Global Human Exploitation

robbing_you_with_a_keyboard

The global phenomena of gangs using child and adult sex trafficking to generate millions of dollars is driven by one thing —— IT’S ALL ABOUT THE MONEY.

On one of our recent shows, we talked about the SCALE AND SCOPE of organized criminal gangs generating tens of millions of dollars by exploiting people. Prostitution advertising websites use bitcoin to charge for their ads. Gangs use bitcoin to buy and sell on the dark net. Kids use bitcoin to buy virtual tattoos in online gaming. Investors boast glowingly about the amazing investment opportunities with cyber-currency.

BUT WHAT THE HECK IS IT? AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

This week our guest will be Lynn Edgington, Founder/President of Eagle Research Associates, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in Southern California. He is also the author of, “Robbing You with a Keyboard Instead Of A Gun – Cyber Crime How They Do It.”

Lynn works with law enforcement around the globe to assist in cyber-crime investigations involving crypto-currencies and cyber-financial fraud. During this show, we will share with the public key elements to watch out for so you don’t become a victim of cyber-crime. We will discuss the phenomena of bitcoin and the dangers associated with investing in cyber-currencies. We will look at multi-level marketing and ponzi schemes and how unsuspecting corporations and individuals have been victimized. We will look at how organized crime groups use cyber-fraud to launder money.

Join us Thursday, December 14, 2017 at 7:00 a.m. PST on VOICE AMERICA – Variety Channel as we explore cyber-currencies and money laundering and the role they play in global human exploitation.

Working With The Homeless to Prevent Trafficking and Exploitation

Sam Eitner
Samantha Eitner
Orange County Rescue Mission
Orange County, California

A HOMELESS WOMAN IS AN EXPLOITED WOMAN.

I will never forget chatting with a survivor of sex trafficking. She shared with me about the first night she was homeless. No one told her that a homeless woman cannot sleep at night. She said she was sleeping on a park bench when she was raped.

This week Host Opal Singleton interviews Samantha Eitner from the Orange County Rescue Mission. We will talk about why people are homeless and what can be done about it. We will also explore issues of addiction, unemployment, mental illness and how to create safe housing environments for women with children. And, we will talk about how you can volunteer to help the homeless in your community.

Join us Thursday, December 7, 2017 at 7:00 a.m. PST on VOICE AMERICA – Variety Channel as we explore how to work with the homeless population to prevent trafficking and exploitation.

Scope and Scale

People often ask if the global epidemic of sexual exploitation is real. Million Kids has been in the “business” of combating adult and child sexual exploitation for nearly ten years now. And the answer is “YES” it is very real. Million Kids is committed to dealing with facts not drama. While trafficking is NOT occurring on every street corner, there is a very real threat to the safety and sanctity of the most vulnerable in our society. 

What is disturbing is the frequency of cases being brought to the court system, the number of perpetrators, and the number of victims in each case. In the early days, we would often see one pimp with two to five victims in a case. Today, it is not unusual for a case to be comprised of eight to thirty perpetrators exploiting dozens, even hundreds of victims covering many cities and states in the U.S.

What is the difference? Organized criminal activity, cyber communities and social media use in recruitment. This week we will look at a wide variety of cases to understand the epidemic known as human exploitation. We will also explore these cases from a law enforcement perspective as to what it takes to build a case and prosecute the perpetrators. Human Trafficking is the fastest growing crime in the U.S. and it will take a serious financial and human commitment to stop this scourge in our communities!

Join us Thursday, November 30, 2017 at 7:00 a.m. PST on VOICE AMERICA – Variety Channel as we explore the SCOPE AND SCALE of human trafficking in the U.S.
