National, local officials warn of online dangers

The online world is vast. And one of the best ways to safeguard children is to limit their access to people they don’t know, authorities said.

Children should not have contact with strangers online and should never give out their passwords or account information. They also need to be wary of posting photographs or information with identifiers, such as where they live or go to school, and they should avoid “sexting,” which Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office Detective Sgt.

Unwelcome exposure: Website’s ‘wins’ are nude selfies of local girls

The message came from a high school friend: “Have you seen this? This is seriously messed up.”

When Tyler Crews clicked on the link, what she found was “sickening,” she said: nude and semi-nude photos of girls she had grown up with in Bedford – the kind of photos teen girls send to their boyfriends, never imagining they could end up posted online someday.

But there’s a shadowy website where users, apparently mostly men, post and request sexual images of young women – they call them “wins.” They trade images of former classmates the way previous generations of boys traded baseball cards.

There’s a “catalog” where you can search for girls from particular high schools, and there
