Did you know that there are over 750,000 registered child predators in the United States alone?
YouTube filmmaker Coby Persin adds this chilling statistic to the end of his social experiment video to remind parents to keep their kids safe.
In the video above, the dangers of social media are highlighted by luring young girls through Facebook.
With permission from the girls’ parents, Persin created a fake Facebook profile, posing as a 15-year-old boy named Jason Biazzo. After adding fake photos of a cute, young boy to his account, he begins a conversation with the girls that lasts for about 3-4 days.
During that time, he manages to gain their trust. The girls offer to meet him at parks, invite him to their home and get into his vehicle.
As you can imagine, the parents were absolutely outraged to see the whole process unravel before their eyes. They were shocked how easy it was for a total stranger to lure their child.
Watch this video until the very end and make sure to educate everyone around you about the dangers of social media and child predators.
