Brad Summer innocently let his seven-year-old daughter Madi use his phone to play on the app Musical.ly – an online social networking platform that allows you to upload short videos accompanied by music. On the surface it seemed safe, but real danger was soon to show…

Madi, from Illinois, was using the app to “make goofy duets of songs” with her cousins. Her father was careful to ensure she only accepted friendship requests from her family and friends, to keep her safe whilst using the app. Except, Madi’s online connections weren’t all they appeared.

The user, posing as ‘Jessy’, began to demand topless photographs of seven-year-old Madi. Fortunately, Madi didn’t comply. However, that didn’t stop the predator from bombarding her with more demands.
Madi, clearly educated on the perils of strangers online chose to ignore the messages, which requested she “make some pics without t-shirt now”. The anonymous predator also persuaded Madi to keep the conversation a secret from her mother, by telling her: “it’s a secret between us only”.

Madi grew suspicious and chose not to return any of ‘Jessy’s’ messages. But, when her father saw the conversation, he couldn’t ignore it. Summer responded to the predator, informing them that they’d been discovered and to add to the strangers alarm, he informed the predator that he is a police officer.

Summer posted the incident on Facebook, to warn other parents about the dangers online. The post went viral, with parents across the globe being sickened by the exchange. The post has served as a dark reminder that “stranger danger” is a true peril on the internet!

The only thing we can do as parents, caregivers and role models is ensure that the children in our lives know exactly what to so when they are messaged by people like this, and that’s seek help from an adult!
