Vegas man posed as child fashion photographer on craigslist

Personally I think people who push their kids into modeling are mentally deficient. Too many people see it as a get rich quick scheme without realizing how many people out there want to take advantage of their children. I’ve posted too many stories about child predators and human traffickers who used the allure of modeling to get close to their victims. However if you’re going to push your kid in that direction don’t post ads on craigslist looking for work for your kid.

One such woman from Bakersfield, California placed such an ad and police say it was responded to 43-yer-old Charles Max Pollock of Las Vegas. That’s over a four-hour trip and almost 300 miles in case you were wondering. Pollock allegedly said that he was a photographer, rented a motel room and took explicit photos of the child. No word on the age of the child but he’s at least of computer using age since the article states that Pollock continued communication with the child. Since Pollock crossed state lines he’s looking at 30 years in federal prison.

Craigslist is the cesspool of the internet. If you post just about any ad in regards to an underage child you more than likely to get a response from a child predator than a talent agent.

More child porn posted on Tumblr

tumblr

Why do so many pedophile scumbags feel the need to post child porn to Tumblr? Do they really think that no one is going to report them? Tumblr is owned by tech giant Yahoo who have received enough bad publicity about predators in their old chat rooms. They don’t need any more bad press over something like that. In previous instances of Tumblr child porn, Tumblr has reported it to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. People have been arrested for this.

For example there is 44-year-old John D. Corr of Phoenixville, Pennsylvania. He was recently arrested for allegedly posting child porn to Tumblr. As you might expect his arrest came after Tumblr contacted the NCMEC who in turn contacted police. Corr is said to have been in possession of over 100 child porn files.

During the execution of a search warrant, police said, they recovered a HP Pavilion Slimline computer, an external hard drive, a thumb drive, “numerous zip disks” in plastic containers, and CD’s.

Zip disks? Really? 1992 called.

Anyway don’t think that you’re slick thinking you’re not going to get away by posting child porn to Tumblr. They will find it and they will report you. Instead just go ahead and turn yourself in if you have child porn and make it easy for police. You’re going to be caught eventually anyway.

WI man arrested on Omegle child porn charges

Steven Capuzzi

Steven Capuzzi

If you’ve read any of my previous posts about the website Omegle then you know it’s an ‘anonymous’ webcam chat site whose motto is “Talk to strangers.” Apparently you can talk to pedophiles too as there have been instances of suspects trading child porn on Omegle. Since there are no user accounts or user names on Omegle are pedophiles going on there looking for other pedophiles to trade child porn with? You can’t post any kind of file on Omegle either so who is hosting the child porn they’re trading?

Anyway we have another suspect who allegedly posted child porn on Omegle and he is 31-year-old Steven Capuzzi of Madison, Wisconsin. Like in previous stories Omegle sent tips to the National Center for Missing and Exploited children who in turn contacted authorities. So while Omegle may not be the most morally ethical site on the internet they’re at least trying to keep their own yard free of trash. So let that be a warning to the predators and child porn traders on Omegle, they are very willing to turn you in and you’re not as anonymous as you might think.

And again to parents this is a website to keep your eye out for. Underage kids should not be on this website and as I’ve said before they really shouldn’t have a webcam either. Letting your kids use a webcam is just like opening a window to the all the scum on the internet.

There was a crooked craigslist creeper

Jeff Beckman

Jeff Beckman

I can’t do every craigslist creeper story anymore because there are just too many of them. Every once in a while though, it only takes a mugshot to make me stop and post one of those stories. For example take 51-year-old Jeff Beckman of Rosholt, Wisconsin. Have you ever heard the expression ‘don’t get your nose bent out of shape’? It looks like he did.

Anyway, Beckman has recently pleaded not guilty to child solicitation and child porn charges. Police in nearby Marathon County say that Beckman allegedly responded to a craigslist ad they placed posing as someone peddling children. They say that Beckman was willing to pay $60 to have sex with three children, ages 12, 14, and 15. Police later found child porn while searching his home.

Yet as a society we’re still apathetic towards getting craigslist to monitor their own yard. I wonder if the ad the police placed was even flagged by anyone on their local craigslist. Somehow I doubt that it was.

Ohio man creeps craigslist while on family vacation in Florida

Edison grad indicted by federal grand jury on child porn charge:

Sex-sting suspect admits watching molestation live on Internet, FBI says:

Zachary Perdue

Zachary Perdue

Zachary Perdue, age unknown, of Norwalk, Ohio, was recently indicted in a Florida courtroom on charges of child porn and attempted online child luring. Police say that Perdue allegedly placed an ad on the casual encounters section of craigslist looking for sex with a girl of any age. Perdue was in the Orlando area on a family vacation. No word on what family members were with him. I seriously hope it wasn’t his wife and kids.

Perdue did receive a response to his ad from a 14-year-old girl. After asking the girl for sex and sending her explicit pictures Perdue said that he wanted to meet the girl in a public place. He said he was concerned about being set up like in “To Catch A Predator”. Guess what. He was.

When he went to meet the girl at a Sanford, Florida, gas station he was instead met by the police. When police searched his phone they say that they found child porn and his phone of kids between the ages of 5 and 10. He also supposedly admitted to police that he had previously watched some guy molest the guy’s son over the internet.

I know I’m flogging a deceased equine here but some people would have you believe that assclowns like this are just innocent victims being set up by the money hungry police in Florida. And craigslist would have you believe their site doesn’t need moderation. Neither of those statements are true.

Canadian craigslist creeper said put the age of your kids in the subject line

Sex offender arrested again for allegedly targeting kids:

Frank Cunningham

Frank Cunningham

33-year-old Frank Cunningham of Newmarket, Ontario, is a registered sex offender with a number of infractions to his name. In 2004 he was convicted of sexually assaulting a little girl and in 2005 was convicted for luring a child over the internet. Apparently Canadian prison agrees with him because he’s been arrested again, this time for allegedly trying to lure children through craigslist. The way he tried luring them is downright repugnant.

Police say that Cunningham posted an ad on craigslist looking to meet single mothers where he talked about cuddling up with the mothers to watch chick flicks. You can see a picture of the creepy ad he placed on craigslist in the linked article. However it’s not the mother’s he was really after, it was their children since he placed in the ad “put the age of your kid/kids” in the subject line.

Cunningham did get at least one response to his ad, the local police posing as a single mom. They had been tipped off that someone had been posting ads like this in order to gain access to the children. Police say that they also found child porn in Cunningham’s home. At this time they do not believe that any children were harmed this time by Cunningham. They are asking for anyone who has come into contact with Cunningham to call them.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact police at 1-866-876-5423 ext. 7078. Anonymous tips can be left through Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-222-8477, visiting 1800222tips.com, or texting YORK and your tip to CRIMES (274637).

Even still there are people who walk around with their heads in the clouds thinking that craigslist is still a safe place to meet someone. It doesn’t matter if you’re male, female, gay, straight, or whatever, craigslist is not the ideal place to meet someone new. The chances are too great they’ll turn out to be someone like this.

Kik, Facebook and Snapchat: Ohio man hits the creeper trifecta

Man arrested on sex charges involving girls:

Man Meets Girls on Social Media, Arrested on Sex-Related Charges:

Brian Scott Sibley

Brian Scott Sibley

Zippy the Pinhead’s even more brain addled cousin is 27-year-old Brian Scott Sibley of Vinton, Ohio. He was recently arrested by Scioto County Sheriffs for allegedly having sex (child rape) with an underage girl.

Police received a tip from the mother of a 15-year-old girl who said an older man was communicating with her daughter and her daughter’s 11-year-old friend through Facebook, Kik and Snapchat. Great, a creeper who employs redundancy measures. Further investigation revealed that not only did Sibley allegedly solicit explicit photos from the girls, which police say he received, but he also is said to have had sex with one of the girls. I want to say I hope it wasn’t with the 11-year-old girl but I don’t want the other girl to be the victim either.

Police posed as the girl and convinced Sibley they were going to have sex with him but instead was arrested at the arranged meeting place.

As I’ve said before parents, it’s not just your kids’ computers you have to monitor but their cell phones as well. Unfortunately you can’t watch over your kids shoulder while they’re using their cell phones away from home but you should be checking their phones for these apps and their attached friends list regularly.

California Kik Kreeper extorted pre-teens for pictures

Man uses threats to get young girls to send him nude pictures:

‘Sextortion’ suspect set for freedom:

Child porn, exploitation suspect ordered to home incarceration:

kik

25-year-old Brian Caputo of Arvin, California is a Grade-A scumbag, allegedly. He’s accused of posing as a young girl on Facebook, Yahoo Messenger, and Kik as a young girl in order to gain the trust of other young girls on these platforms. He would use aliases like Giavanna Derann, Catness Love and Melissa Harpson to convince girls from ages eight to 13 to send him nude photos.

Let’s stop right there for a second. While I’m sure the parents of the victims are horrified over what has transpired no eight-year-old needs to be on any of these services. Not even under the supervision of a parent. Secondly is this a thing that teen or teen girls send naked pics to each other? It sure as hell wasn’t in my day by cracky.

Once Caputo would receive any of these pictures then he would blackmail his victims into sending him more pictures or he would make the pictures he already has public. He tried blackmailing a 12-year-old girl from El Paso, Texas, into sending him pics and if she didn’t he would release the pictures of her 11-year-old friend. Instead the girl went to her parents who in turn went to police.

Caputo is not only accused of possessing child porn but trading the pictures he received as well. When questioned by police Caputo tried claiming that whoever was doing it was stealing his wi-fi.

So you think a predatory scumbag like Caputo would be kept under the jail while awaiting trial. Nope. He’s currently under house arrest at his mommy’s house where his underage sister was forced to move out. Does anybody want to lay odds he gets in trouble again before going to trial?

This assclown intrigues me so I’ll be keeping a close eye on this story.

UPDATE 3/13/2014: The courts have come to their sense and have revoked Caputo’s house arrest. He’s now being held without bond.

Illinois man charged with posting child porn to Tumblr

Forest Park man charged with posting child porn on Tumblr:

Kenneth Sims

Kenneth Sims

29-year-old Kenneth Sims of Forest Park, Illinois, was recently arrested for allegedly posting child porn to the blogging site Tumblr under the account name “addicted-to-cuties”. Police say they took 16 flash drives worth of images and videos of child porn from Sims’ Tumblr site. Even if they were all 1GB flash drives 16GB, even if all videos, is way too much child porn that should be existing in Tumblr.

Investigators were contacted by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children after they received a tip. In the past the NCMEC has received tips from Tumblr itself but there was no word if this was the case here.

But Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is the deal with the child porn scum posting to Tumblr? The last 3 stories I posted about Tumblr had to deal with child porn. What makes them think that it won’t be discovered on Tumblr especially considering that Tumblr’s corporate overlord, Yahoo, has a vested PR interest in making sure that crap does not exist on their site.

As far as parents should be concerned I wouldn’t worry too much about Tumblr. Just make sure you keep an eye on your kids’ accounts and who is interacting with them and you should be ok. What’s that? You say your kid doesn’t have a Tumblr account? That’s cute. Yes, they do.

Police say that Florida craigslist creeper wanted to have sex with special needs kids

PD: Man attempts to meet 3 y/o & special needs child for sex:

Man arrested after planning to have sex with boy, 3, police say:

Paul Andrew Vangelder

Paul Andrew Vangelder

It seems like 47-year-old Paul Andrew Vangelder of Port Charlotte, Florida, was feeling a little lonesome on Valentine’s day so he did what any perv would do, he looked for companionship on craigslist. And to what should his wandering eyes doth appear but an ad for parents who were willing to turn out their kids. Not just any kids though but two special needs children, one a 3-year-old boy and the other a 9-year-old girl. Vangelder was said to have described what he wanted to do to the children in great detail to the parents and then set off to North Port, Florida, to meet them.

Wen Vangelder arrived at the home he was greeted by the officers of the North Port police. This was all a sting to catch craigslist creepers. You know, for the grant money and not to put actual criminals in jail or anything, as some would have you believe. Except that this was allegedly found on him…

Officers found a bi-pod camera stand and a digital camera with an SD memory card inside of it in Vangelder’s silver Nissan truck.

While searching the SD card, officers found a pornographic video of four young boys committing sexual acts on each other.

So it sounds like this may not be his first rodeo but I’m sure we’ll hear about he was an innocent man entrapped by the greedy police.

Look, this is a real thing. There are actually parents out there who will turn their kids out on craigslist. This is no urban legend. In my opinion any use of craigslist, since they can’t be bothered to monitor their own site, is helping support the continued violation of children by the craigslist creepers.
