The young girl in the video receives a message from a person she doesn’t know claiming they have the same interests. The stranger got her number from an online forum where she shared her number. This person is claiming to be the same age as the girl – 10. We can clearly see from the footage that this is not the case. The stranger asks her to meet up. The young girl imagines what would happen if they met up. When she is brought back to reality, she decides against the meeting and tells the stranger.

Some top tips to be mindful of when you use the internet:

1. Don’t interact with strangers online or accept friend requests from people you don’t know.
2. Don’t give any personal information away online, for example, your phone number.
3. NEVER meet up with someone you met online.
4. Stop and think before you access the internet. You don’t want to regret your decisions when it comes to the internet.

How do you who and what to trust online? You don’t. Be careful.

    I like this video. It’s simple yet effective. I like the way it shows what might happen but then the girl does the right thing and says no to meeting the stranger. Well done to all involved. Best of luck!
