Cyberbullying and the Wild, Wild Web
What Everyone Needs to KnowBook - 2017
J.A. Hitchcock began to have an interest in cyberstalking and cyberbullies in 1996 when she blew the whistle on a literary agency scam. They stole her identity and began posting messages online pretending to be her; and that was only the beginning of a barrage of threats. When she contacted local police they had never had an internet-related case and couldn't help her, so she taught herself how to track down online criminals, how to handle the situation, and how to stay safer online. After 10 years of being a victim, her cyberstalkers were brought to justice. Unfortunately, not all internet crime stories end with a happy ending. Really, anyone of any age can become the target of a cyberbully. And quite honestly, victims are getting younger and younger every year when it comes to being cyberbullied. Throughout this book, Hitchcock explains how someone can become victim to cyberbullying and how they can stay safer online.
