Contacted by my first pedophile
 
There are Vt users who aren't who they say they are. Naively I gave one of them my email. :-(
My email contains my full name, but that isn't enough to find me in the US. My dad who I live with has a different name as well. But I still worry.

I said that if I receive more messages I will report that person to the police. I'm just 14.

And Mr Pedo - we live in the West. There are guns everywhere in my house so just try something!!!

Whether or not this person contacts you again, you should definitely report this to the VT Staff. They will look into it. It's almost certain this person will just move on to other VT members and attempt to be inappropriate with them as well. VT is meant to be a safe environment.

To be honest, you're right about there being members here who aren't who they claim to be. Based on my own experiences, there are probably a lot more than people realize. Don't believe everything you read or see, and please don't turn a blind eye to it. Many members (including myself) have been fooled or hurt by others.

Unless you really, really knows someone via the internet, don't share private information. As Emerald Dream said, there are more false accounts and pedophiles online than you may think. It is always good to have precautions online.

Emerald Dream, while totally correct, is not a staff member. Please send this information to a senior staff member such as myself or xXl0sth0peXx.

No, staff member means us :P We're users like you who volunteered to help out the site. Here's a list of current staff members. Here's more information about the staff as a whole.

Oh no sorry hear that. Got to be so careful, it's a shame people can't be who they say they are online. :-(

Yeah without mentioning names there's a few very dodgy people on this site. I just stick to the advice around sharing of information and way to contact off VT and keep any chats on the VT PM system, that way anyone that I think is a threat I can contact VT staff and it's all on the site for them to see

This is very good advice. Always be sceptical of who you give information to.
