Year of the Fix: 2014
Location: Devon
Campaign: To help others realise the dangers of online grooming

When I was fourteen, I became the target of online grooming.

 

I had started speaking to this guy and at first, everything seemed normal.

 

But soon the conversation became increasingly flirty and took a turn when he started asking me to send inappropriate photos and to run away with him. 

 

In the end, this man was arrested and sent to jail for his actions.

 

Following my experiences, I now know that not all predators are immediately obvious to spot – especially online where identities can be hidden.

 

I hope my Fixers campaign will help prevent other young people from being lured into such traps.

  

('Rebecca' is not my real name, because I would like to remain anonymous.)
