Click, Click, Who's Really There?eBook - 2006
A click of a mouse seems so harmless, but how do you know what you are really tapping into on the other side or who is really tapping into you? Who says it is acceptable or safe to welcome millions of strangers into the comfort and privacy of your own home? Despite startling facts and statistics reported by the FBI and other law enforcement agencies, families and children still believe the myth, "Yes, people are at risk online, but not me or my child because . . ." Every "because" statement turned out to be false for the children and families who were completely blindsided when they were invaded, victimized, and traumatized by online crime. Not one victim knew what he/she was up against until after the assault. Today's families can no longer afford to subscribe to the ostrich syndrome. You may have your head in the sand, but the predators, pedophiles, hackers, scammers, and other strangers have an absolutely clear view of you. The numbers are alarming enough. Why wait to become a statistic? Empower yourself now Learn how to reap the benefits of the internet while reducing the risks using a family based, non-technical approach.
