SAO: Sexually Explicit Cyber-Bullying Campaign Targets South Florida Users

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office is warning Internet and social media users to be on the lookout for a cyber-bullying campaign that popped up Friday.

Officials said, Friday afternoon, someone had created a social media account, within the past 24-hours, that is specifically asking South Florida users to send sexually explicit pictures of friends or acquaintances.

The State Attorney’s Office investigators said the accounts are related to a cyber-bullying campaign based on a movie called “The Purge”.

The “purge” refers to the film that imagines the country making all crime legal for one night out of the year.

The State Attorney’s Office investigators said it appears that some of the victims affected by the incident believe that they have identified the suspect. Victims should also not get involved in the sharing of the any photos.

Victims are asked to contact police.
