This, Too, Must Somehow Be MySpace's Fault
The man agreed to meet "Natalia" based entirely on her (fictional) profile with pictures and a statement that she was looking for "some fun." He agreed to meet her at her supposed apartment And then things went poorly...
That is when two girls who were 14 and 15-years-old, approached him saying they knew Natalia, the girl he thought he'd be meeting. They also said they knew where he worked at what car he drove.
"This was not the girl that the picture was of on MySpace," the victim said.
The so-called Natalia did tell the victim that she was 18, so he was shocked to learn he was actually talking to a 14-year-old. He says he has since removed personal information from his MySpace profile, like his salary and the kind of car that he drives.
Good call, that, removing your salary.
