SEXTORTION (Virtual Sexual Assault)
PART 2

sextortion-example

It can happen to anyone (man, woman, boy, girl, gay, straight, innocent teen or a pernicious child) reaching out to find love in all the wrong places. Sextortion is the act of extortion or blackmail based on a sexually oriented encounter. Sometimes it is an old boyfriend threatening to use photos from a broken relationship, or a gamer who lures a teen into sending naked photos. It can be a “meet up” on Kik, Tinder, Grindr or Meetme that leads to webcam sex or a naked photo. Often it is a pedophile looking for photos of naked children to sell to thousands of others on child porn rings. Occasionally, it is a hacker using Malware that finds old photos stored on your hard drive that you long ago forgot about. The bottom line: Sextortion is an epidemic in this age of technology. It is one of the fastest growing cybercrimes in the U.S and around the world.

This week on Exploited: Crimes Against Humanity we will examine real cases of sextortion. Every case is different and fascinating. There is no single method. Predators have varied fetishes and preferences. Some desire very young kids and others blackmail naïve and trusting adults. Most predators have multiple victims. At times they operate independently and other times they are part of an organized Sextortion ring. Predators begin on one app or chat room and move stealthily between them, using live streaming and webcams to keep from being caught. Join us Thursday, September 29, 2016 at 7:00 a.m. PST as we go inside the dark world of pedophiles and predators that prey on the innocent through sextortion.

SEXTORTION (Virtual Sexual Assault)

When Salacious Selfies Turn to Blackmail

sextortion-example

Nearly every day we read about it and pray it won’t be our child. A predator in a faraway city has befriended a teen and ultimately a photo is exchanged. Quickly their lives become a nightmare as their new exciting “friend” threatens to destroy them by distributing the photo, or demanding money, or, even worse, requiring a continuous supply of more erotic and damaging photos. The youth is terrified, shamed and may even think of suicide. They panic, they can’t sleep, they may run away or stop going to school. The impact on an adolescent is life changing. It is the malicious phenomena called Sextortion.

According to the U.S Department of Justice, “sextortion is by far the most significantly growing threat to children.” Sextortionists are prolific and most have multiple victims. Their motives vary. Sometimes it is the collection of progressively erotic and degrading photos to share on large-scale child porn rings. Sometimes they want money – large sums of money. Sometimes it is about the power of demeaning a vulnerable child. Sometimes they desire a “relationship” with their prey. Both girls and boys are susceptible. In ALL cases it is virtual sexual assault.

Join EXPLOITED: CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY on Thursday, September 22, 2016 at 7a.m. Pacific Time as Opal Singleton and Susie Carpenter explore a multitude of cases involving sextortion. We will examine the statistics and predator tactics. We will talk about the do’s and don’ts of reporting cases of sextortion. We will look at common apps, chat rooms, games and schemes for enticing and recruiting vulnerable teens. SEXTORTION IS VIRTUAL EXPLOITATION. We invite you to join us and educate yourself so we can keep our young people safe.

Walking A Mile In Her Shoes (or five)

prostitution

Have you ever thought about the reality of the life of a girl in prostitution? What happens when the John doesn’t pay? How do they spend hours in 5 inch spiked heels? What was life like for her when she was a child? or as his new girlfriend? or after a night where he beat her severely and burned her with an iron and raised her quota. Night after night of negotiation and exploitation of acceptance and rejection and wanting to be the hero, but fearing she may be beat to death.

Whether the victim is a 13-year-old runaway duped by a smooth-talking pimp or a 45-year-old woman, who has logged years “in the life,” victims of exploitation experience severe psychological damage, deep-seated emotional trauma, and are often branded and scarred after horrendous physical abuse.

This week on EXPLOITED: Crimes Against Humanity we are having the “Jen and Gwen Show” hosted by Opal Singleton. Jen Osgood from Rapha House and Gwen Adams from Priceless Alaska will join us to share their experiences in dealing with the physical, psychological and safety needs when working with victims of sex trafficking. If you are willing to hear the truth about victims of sex trafficking, we guarantee this will be one of the most informative shows you will ever experience. Be sure to share this information with your friends!

Join Exploited: Crimes Against Humanity Thursday, September 8, 2016 at 7:00 a.m. Pacific Time on Voice America – Variety Channel as we explore the exploitation of migrants in the U.S.

Legal and illegal immigration is a huge issue in the 2016 U.S. election. All around the globe we are witnessing mass migration and millions of refugees being uprooted and displaced because of war and political unrest. These are truly historic times for our world.

This week we will explore how foreign nationals are exploited in the U.S. You may be surprised to learn that most exploited foreign nationals arrive in the U.S. legally. Certainly those with no documentation are the most vulnerable, but most exploited migrants have student or work visas. And, most victims of human trafficking are exploited by foreign nationals of the same ethnicity.

We will look at cases involving Chinese women sex workers in Los Angeles and New York, a Latin American sex trafficking ring, and how innocent “border kids” ended up forced to clean chicken coops and debeak chickens all day long without pay. America is a land of promise to foreign nationals, but in many cases vulnerable victims find themselves at a center of a nightmare when they arrive because they trusted the wrong people. Join “Exploited: Crimes Against Humanity” on Thursday, September 8, 2016 at 7:00 a.m. as we take on the tough conversation about how migrants are trafficked in the U.S.

Our world is changing at the speed of light. Technology is neither good or bad.

skip-lara-lanfriedA LOOK AT HUMAN TRAFFICKING IN THE GLOBAL MIGRATION AND REFUGEE CRISIS IN EUROPE AND THE MIDDLE EAST- and how that affects you as a U.S. Citizen

Millions of individuals around the globe have lost everything due to war, gangs and political unrest in Syria, Ukraine, Africa, and Latin and South America. Some have been forced out as their homes are bombed and others have chosen to find a way to escape gangs, cartels and ISIS through migration to keep their families safe. Families have been separated and reduced to the possessions on their back. Most have no income and millions are just trying to find a way to safety and stability. Women are especially vulnerable to rape and being forced into sex trafficking.

Our guest this week will be Dr. Skip Lanfried, the Global Freedom Pastor for Yorba Linda Friends Church. Dr. Lanfried just returned from visiting the refugee camps in Turkey, Jordan and Greece. He will share about some of the people he met, the challenge of dealing with gangs, and child exploitation in refugee camps. Dr. Lanfried will tell us the stories of real people, in real danger desperately trying to save their family from sex and labor exploitation. This will be a truly fascinating discussion as we attempt to fathom just how quickly a life can go from safety and success to complete destitution and annihilation.

Be sure to join us on Thursday, August 18, 2016 at 7:00 a.m. Pacific Time on the Voice America – Variety Channel. If you miss the live show, you can find the archived show on ExploitedCrimes.com.
