Online Victimization

                                                     ONLINE VICTIMIZATION
People may be victimized online in many ways:

Threats or other offensive behaviour sent online to the youth or posted online about the youth for others to see.

Sexual solicitation:
Requests to engage in sexual activities and talk or give personal sexual information. This becomes aggressive with continued requests for offline contact with the perpetrator through regular mail, by telephone, or in person.

Unwanted exposure to sexual material:
Without seeking or expecting sexual material while searching/surfing the web, accessing email/links or instant messages. These become distressing incidents only when and where the youth rate themselves as extremely upset of afraid as a result of the incident.
