“Worldwide Predator Hunters” : The group conducts sting operations posing as teenagers to catfish potential online predators before confronting them on Facebook Live.
They use “decoy” profiles of fictional children to attract adults alleged to be seeking illicit contact with minors. If an adult shows up for the meeting with the fictional child, these meetings are recorded, and the videos are released on social media
From the Worldwide Predators website:
What We Do
Our method of raising awareness about the epidemic of child abuse involves a multi-facet operation: predator exposure and registry, the hosting of awareness events, and community outreach and education.
How We Hunt
Once an adult contacts one of our decoys on a dating site, the decoy immediately claims to be underage. Normal people discontinue the conversation at this point. The ones that attempt to groom the decoy and ask to meet are exposed by our Hunter Department. We escalate the case to law enforcement, and supply police with the incriminating evidence we have gathered. Attempts are also made to refer these predators to getting psychological help. From there, our marketing team updates our online registry and alerts the community. Our decoy, research, hunting, and marketing departments are groups of skilled volunteers. We do this as a public service to our communities. NO ONE under the age of 18 is EVER involved with WWPH stings. If you are interested in helping us, please visit our Support page.
To protect children by identifying and exposing online child predators. To raise awareness about this epidemic within the community. To provide community education about safe internet practices.
To bridge the gap between hunters and local law enforcement agencies. To assist in the capture and conviction of child sex offenders. To help sexual predators find psychological help, and be safe members of society.
Above all, to Keep Kids Safe. We Won’t Stop!
We asked them a few questions, below are their responses.
- Tell us about your group?
- When did you start your group?
- Why did you start it?
- What is your short term and long term goals?
- How many people are apart of your group?
- You get paid or all volunteer?
- How do you find suspects?
- How often do you do stings?
- Police agencies assist your group?
Some do, some choose to not even respond when we send all the information of the individual along with all files to them, even when we do follow up with them when we haven’t heard from them in a period of time we still get no responses.
- How often do the suspects get arrested?
Depends on the state we’re working with, Minnesota is a big fan, we also work with the BCA there which has had us lure individuals to a sting house.
At this time we currently 50 exposures, 10 arrests and 9 convictions.
- Kind of equipment do you use? Cell phones, computers, body cameras and some do wear bullet proof vests.
- Your most memorable sting?
I would have to say a child pornography case out of Minnesota which also lead to a high speed chase and the individual had crashed 2 minutes into the chase.Links to your website and social media
