Congratulations, you have more sense than some teenage girls.Just been reading about this -
Haven’t pasted the news article onto here though as it’ll undoubtedly just attract a load of armchair news critics with a superiority complex saying things like ‘ooh you don’t get your news from there do you- you should try reading this newspaper instead’
Anyway - the crux of the matter is that the victims are claiming to have been ‘befriended’ online . For Christ’s sake man. You don’t get befriended by a complete stranger who could be anyone, anywhere in the world ONLINE!!! If kids could lift their heads up from their screens for a bit longer they might learn that the world doesn’t revolve around their phones - in fact the world in their phones Is probably a lot darker than reality in a lot of cases. This blackmail story being proof of that.
