Although someone may seem kind and understanding at first, taking a long time to develop a relationship with you, they may flip when they feel it is for their benefit.
In this way, people whom you have once trusted could use your personal information against you. In any case, it is necessary to talk with someone you trust and create a safe action plan to combat online abuse.
Online bullying could dramatically impact young women, such as Amanda Todd, and need to be taken seriously. If the abuse becomes serious, the Edmonton Police Department has the authority to launch an investigation if the threats are targetting at the victims and their friends and family.
Please see the Edmonton Police Department website to access other Edmonton and area-specific resources on online bullying and harassment.
