Over 1,000 pedophiles around the world have been caught soliciting online sex with a 10-year-old Filipina girl that they did not know was the computer generated product of an anti-exploitation sting, a Dutch human rights group has said.

The girl, known as ‘Sweetie,’ was created by Terre des Hommes Netherlands as a way for the organization to notify the public about how frequently children in developing countries are victimized. The group said it has turned over the identities of the perpetrators willing to pay for sex with Sweetie over to law enforcement.

They were ready to pay Sweetie for sexual acts in front of her webcam,” Albert Jaap van Santbrink told AFP in The Hague on Monday.

Sweetie was only real in that she existed in an internet chat room for ten weeks. Launched from Amsterdam, she attracted more than 20,000 sexual predators from 71 countries who asked for sex performances.

Santbrik said the men were from all walks of life and came from a variety of professional situations. They were “fathers, musicians, an architect,” he told AFP.

Our worst-case scenario is that the same will happen with this phenomenon as with child pornography, which is now a multi-billion dollar industry in the hands of criminal gangs.”

One man identified only by his screen name, “Older4Young,” said he was a 35-year-old father of two from Atlanta, Georgia in the US. He offered Sweetie $10 to undress on camera.

Turn on your cam,” he wrote. “I’m horny.”

Posing as Sweetie, Tres des Hommes workers said they never made first contact in the chat room, but instead waited for predators to begin a conversation with the girl. Activist Hans Guyt said it is more necessary than ever to trick predators into soliciting children online because the problem is only getting worse and rendering international borders irrelevant.

We identified ourselves as 10-year-old Filipino girls. We did not solicit anything unless it was offered to us,” he said.

Sexual crimes end in arrest most often when the victim comes forward. Yet when the victim is a child, and under the control of an adult who is selling that child for profit, law enforcement is forced to get creative.

The biggest problem is that the police don’t take action until child victims file reports, but children almost never report these crimes,” Guyt continued. “The predator won’t come forward. The victim won’t come forward. This requires a new way of policing.”

  1. I HAVE BEEN TO THE PHILIPPINES AND IN FACT I WAS MARRIED A PILIPINO FROM DAVAO CITY. i HAVE A YOUNG SON, THERE I SAW MANY YOUNG CHILDREN BEGGING ON THE STREETS. THIS IS SOMETHING THAT DOES NEED TO BE STOPPED AND STOPPED COMPLETLY. THE MAIN PROBLEM IS CHILD POVERTY. AND THE PEDOS USE THAT TO EXPLOIT THISE KIDS.
    PLEASE SIGN THIS AND HELP PREVENT CHILD ABUSE.

  2. The main problem in the Philippines is that it is not frowned upon over there to exploit children. Also that the mentality of some of the organised gangs is to promise children work and then sell them into prositution. This is a problem that starts at grass root level and also the fact that they see foreigners as ways of making money and unfortunately will do anything to get money by whatever means. Westerner predators will go looking for children online particularly from Thailand or the Philippines as they know that the government is corrupt and any prosecution over there has to be paid for by the victim or the victims family. When a child is killed or exploited over there they have an arrangement called blood money; the criminal will pay a bribe to escape the law and the police and courts will accept this. While this climate continues children from this country are particularly at risk.

  3. The Portland police are womanizing with other people’s wives and are granting those women permission to poison off husbands and police are using their police powers to cover up victims 911 calls and to deny victims help at emergency hospitals!

    My Wife Was Having An Affair With A Cop That Was Impersonating Me And My Wife Poisoned Me For Trying To Warn People About It!

    I am a victim of a corrupt sting operation by local police/sheriff’s and my wife and her side of the family and her own daughters were sleeping with those officer’s!

    Under the pretense of conducting a sting operation, those officer’s and my wife and her side of the family were setting me up using a body double and photogenic photo’s and were framing me for a murder!

    I caught them in the act of using that double/officer making child porn and they murdered the child, so they were setting me up as a pedophile and for a murder using a double!

    The Portland police and Multnomah county sheriff’s have a history of womanizing with other people’s wives and granting those woman permission to poison off husbands and they have a history of using body doubles and photogenic photo’s to frame innocent people as pedophiles and they have a name for it, they call it pedofying!
