Those dastardly pedophiles will do anything to score fresh photos of naked minors. Why, they'll even offer video game points! Yes, it's true. Local media wouldn't lie or be otherwise confused on the concept of points.
"Kids are playing games, and they are being asked to take photos of themselves naked in order to get game points," state attorney Cybercrime Detective Lt. David Maurer said. "There is not only the chatting version of the games but also a webcam involved."
"My theory on it is that predators are going to go where kids are, and kids are playing video games so it's a perfect place for them to be," Maurer said. At any time, there can be up to 300,000 people online playing the most popular Internet-connected games, Local 6's Donald Forbes reported.
"You think they're just watching a game, and I didn't really know they could actually get through the games and play a lot of people," parent Alida Magana said. The most popular games are Halo 3, Call To Duty [sic], Final Fantasy and Grand Theft Auto.
I didn't know that "Send Nude Photo To Creepy Guy" was one of the Achievements in Halo 3. Do you think Sony will try to keep parity with their new Trophy system? And how many points is a nude photo worth in today's modern online economy? Someone should ask Lt. Mauer for more information. After all, he has a theory.
