SUSPICIOUS ONLINE AD LURES GIRLS

The Council for the Welfare of Children (CWC) warns everyone, especially the students and parents, to be vigilant on suspicious advertisements preying on girls.

A concerned citizen reported to the CWC an online advertisement on the internet on April 13, 2016 while on search for rooms to rent.

The report came with the screen-captured advertisement, captioned with “Free room and food for school girls.”

It was also stated “I would like to offer free room and food for school going kids and girls. No rent required. Just for kind. God bless. Text me (+xxxxxxxxxxx).”

Further, the CWC deeply encourages everyone to be vigilant and report too good to be true advertisements to the proper authorities which could prevent victimization of girls and women.
