Vengeful online sex ads take growing toll - The Red Tape Chronicles - msnbc.com

Vengeful online sex ads take growing toll - The Red Tape Chronicles - msnbc.comA good reminder to everyone that we are all vulnerable online if someone cares enough to hurt you. The laws are getting better, and if someone implicates others, or someone is underage and being targeted, the FBI may get involved quickly.
The secret? Be careful, google, bing and yahoo! yourself, get emotional and legal help.
In particular, I wanted to give Craig at Craigslist lots of credit here. They are quick to respond and care a great deal.
Be careful out there!
