Seriously! What Would You Think?!!?

I watched this special recently on TV about how sexual predators have this new way of finding prey. Apparently now they are texting cell phone numbers with pictures of things to see if they got a response back from young girls who might have their own cell phone. This was of high interest to me because we have talked alot about getting Alex her own cell phone because she does so many activities and I'm always dropping her off somewhere. I want her to have a phone.

So this morning I get 3 texts in a row around 9 am from Area Code 240. Ummm. That's NOT a Kansas area code. Imagine my thoughts when this picture came through. A picture any little girl would "aww!" at!And then following this picture was this one..........

After this picture I got a "har har" forward type message about Obama being elected as president. So after 3 texts. One being a cute dog, second some dude looking like a pimp, and third this stupid forwarded message I was not only mad I was thinking this dude is looking for some teenage girl. I almost text back "text me again and I'm calling the cops." but then I decided to call Dave about it first. Glad I did because it's his uncle. Yep that's Dave's uncle and you can see in the picture he is wearing his cop outfit. lol!!

This is not what his uncle Lee looked like when I met him years ago. He actually looks like Sal "Pussy" from the Sopranos. Wanna see a comparison?

Anyways good thing is, it wasn't some perv. Dave was laughing like crazy and will probably be telling his uncle all about how mad and freaked out I was knowing him. I'm just glad it was his uncle because I really would have called the cops.

Sabrina, that is very funny, I too would have freaked. Can you get a phone that only rec's calls, no texts or photos? Our oldest has a phone for school, but it's a dinosaur one, just for him to call if he needs us.

what you have posted is a good reminder for keeping our kids safe, it's scary out there!
