Many people ask "what is a cyber predator?" Well, a cyber predator is someone who uses communication technologies to stalk a person with the intent of inflicting financial or bodily harm. Here too, though the problem is widespread, much of the public is unaware of how cyber predators identify and pursue their victims. Anybody could be a cyber predator so don't trust anybody you don't know over the internet.
spaceCyber Predators often do something called cyberstalking. Cyberstalking is the use of the internet or other electronic means to persue or harass someone, often causing a range of physical, emotional and pschological to the victim. Unfortunately, stalkers can hide behind anonymous e-mails and use computer programs that conceal their digital location, making it difficult for law enforcement to link harassment to a particular stalker.
spaceThe Centers for Disease Control conducted an extensive telephone survey, funded by the National Institute of Justice, that found that approximately 8 percent of women and 2 percent of men had been stalked at some time in their lives. Another study found that more than 1 million Americans are stalked each year (Tjaden & Thoennes, 1997). Results of similar studies suggest that the vast majority of cases are heterosexual in nature and involve males stalking females.
