Investigators at the Talbot County Sheriff’s Office are seeing an increase in online child exploitation cases during the past few weeks.
Children are coerced into sending inappropriate pictures to persons posing to be young persons, only to find out they are adults who then threaten to “release” the pictures to others in the community if the victim doesn’t send money or more pictures.
The sheriff’s office is asking parents to educate themselves and their children about the dangers of online communications.
