FBI Alerts To Cyber Stalking Danger For Kids Learning From Home


MILFORD MILL, MD -- The FBI's Baltimore field office says there is a real danger of cyber stalking for kids who are learning from home online.

The FBI says complaints about cyber stalking predators are up more than 250 percent in Baltimore alone and far more all over the country. FBI special agent for violent crimes against children Matt Vilcek says his team is "drowning" in the number of stalking complaints some of which happen after an email attachment is opened or a Zoom event is hacked. He recommends that kids learn how to safely surf online at SOS.FBI.Gov.

Leif Jackson, VP of Content and Community at Cybrary talks with 104.7 WONK FM's Jen Richer about the cyber threats under the pandemic.
