According to a report from the Cleveland Police department, A ten-year-old girl was groomed by perverts through her iPad – despite her parents taking ‘all sensible safety measures’ to protect her.
The girl was given the tablet to help with her schoolwork. But just a month later her mother checked the device and was ‘terrified’ to discover that she had been targeted by at least 16 men.
They used popular applications such as Skype and Snapchat to send the girl explicit messages and encourage her to expose herself on camera.
The perverts, who are understood to be based in the UK and overseas, were able to contact the girl, who lives near Middlesbrough, even though her parents had taken child safety precautions.
Police have now launched an international investigation to find the men. Detectives from Cleveland Police are liaising with Snapchat and Skype bosses in the hope of tracking them down, according to the Sun.
Her father, 37, said that his daughter told many of the men that she was ten years old, but that it only encouraged them to ask for explicit images.
He told the Sun: ‘In one case they begged her to undress. When she refused he said “Your parents won’t come into your room in the time it will take to get out of your pyjamas”.’
He father added that the most frightening exchange he read was one in which a man offered to transfer his daughter money so that she might travel to meet up with him.
On another occasion one man begged: ‘Open cam baby open’ and added: ‘plzzzzzz I like sex. What problem r u no interest to sex.’
