Victim of Cybercrime : Leslie
Friend : Candy
Candy : hey Leslie, Are you alright? You haven't
been answering my messages lately. You're not talking to anyone in school
Leslie : It's just.... I .... I don't know... I
Candy : Come on Leslie. I'm your best friend. You
know you can trust me.
Leslie : Every time someone is repeatedly sending
me e-mails and pictures of me with my friends. I didn't think that it would be
that bad. Until the same person continued pictures of me and e-mailing me
calling me a loser and a moron. He/She sent me screenshots of people
gossiping,spreading rumors and talking rubbish about me.That thought was
haunting me and I never talked to anyone after that.
* Leslie burst
into tears *
Candy : Oh Leslie.Why didn't you tell me before?
You've got to tell your parents first thing after you reach home.
Leslie : But it would become a bigger problem..
Candy : No,Of course not! You got it reverse.
Cyberbullying is a crime and whoever is doing this to you has got to get
Leslie : What if she starts hating me even more?
She wouldn't stop.
Candy : That's never gonna happen. The police
will take care of this.
Leslie : I still have a bad feeling about this. I
even doubted coming to school. I couldn't even sleep. Before going to the
police can you try to solve who this person is and stop him/her? I'm kind of
scared to go to the police....
Candy : I'll help. But later, we have to inform
Leslie : Um.. Okay.
Her E-mail address is **************. And I get
messages from her from 4pm after school till 11pm near midnight. She knows my
name,email,phone no. and even you.
Candy : I think she might be one of our school
mates. I'm not sure but I guess so.
Leslie : I'm still very scared Candy. She doesn't
seem to like me at all. But everybody in school is really nice to me.
Candy : Maybe she is jealous of you and shows her
true feelings online.I'm not sure though. I suggest you head home and tell your
parents. I'll come with you if you want.
Leslie : I'm not sure. I get messages from her telling me
that if I don't listen to her, things would be a lot worse.
Candy : And then?
Leslie : I would just put my phone down cry myself to sleep. This happens
almost everyday. I feel so confused.I didn't know how bad this can be even
after reading mystery books. My parents saw a change in my behavior.
Candy : But they didn't ask you? or You didn't tell them?
Leslie : I did but in a twisted way. I didn't want them to know. i had the same
dream every time. So i decided to tell them about it. But instead they sent me
to a psychologist.
Candy : Oh.
Leslie : It made me feel even worse. They thought I was mad. I just didn't want
them to know.
Candy : Well you can't be like this forever. You have to tell them.
Leslie : But what If I get punished? Punished for not letting them know
Candy : Well it's not too late to tell them. And they're your parents, they
will do anything to help you. It's even more dangerous and important than you
think it is.You have to let this fear of this person go away. You'll feel much
Leslie : Are you sure? I wouldn't feel guilty?
Candy : Trust me. You'll never regret this.
Hope it helps
I tried my best
