At Cybersleuth Investigations we know online abuse is the dark side of social media and that it’s becoming all too common.

While the news is full of stories about online predators that target children and teens for sex and money, we rarely hear about those who prey on adults.

In recent years, there’s been a significant increase in the number of predators that troll social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, and dating sites including Match.com and Plenty of Fish, seeking unsuspecting victims.

These predators often come across as funny and charming, and are adept at making their victims feel special and cherished in order to procure funds or explicit photos. They will claim to share many of their target’s same interests, and may even send photos (most likely fake). Behind their charming façade are seasoned manipulators who have played the same twisted game time and time again with multiple victims.

Cybersleuth Investigations was formed to provide guidance and assistance to those who have fallen victim to an online predator. We work with our clients to identify the person who is harassing or blackmailing them online, and to quickly resolve the situation. If intimidation has crossed the line to criminal intent, we can also work with law enforcement investigators to put an end to the aggravation.

No one is exempt from being targeted. In a 2016 survey of over 3,000 Americans, 47% reported experiencing some sort of online harassment or abuse.

 Many people believe nothing can be done to identify or stop an online predator, or wrongly believe they somehow brought the situation on themselves. That’s not true. The shame and stigma associated with victim fraud means that many suffer in silence.
