My chat with a predator

I heard about a site, allegedly a safe haven for predators, via a Youtube video. I decided to make a guest account, posing as a 15yo girl. The following chat occured within a minute of me making this fake account. May this gallery serve as a warning to parents: you’re children are actively being preyed upon.

Meet the predator

Chris Hansen sparks controversy

Famous journalist, Chris Hansen, has apparantly enraged many of the people who came to trust him. The famous journalist, known for targeting child predators, had allegedly sold the rights for his Onision investigation. While Hansen has claimed it to be a move to gain more attention, the online community is simply not buying it. In one instance, Hansen even blocked an individual who was critical of the act.

Being critical of Hansen, Youtuber “Deity” makes his feelings known. He would later be blocked for this tweet.
In a tweet, “Deity” shows that he had been blocked by the journalist.

Controversies

Although Hansen has had years of experience as a television journalist, he hasn’t been without financial problems. Rather it be millions worth of debt, an arrest, it seems that things haven’t been fairing well for the journalist. It is for this reason, many within the online community speculated that the Onision investigation was a money ploy.

Although Hansen brought a form of momentum to the Onision situation, he hadn’t actually stated any facts that weren’t already available. At one point, Hansen attempted to interview the infamous Youtuber only to be met with local police. Meanwhile, some within the online community speculated this to be a problicity stunt.

Behind the scenes of the investigation, there was a boiling pot of controversy. While much of it was focused on his former employee, Vincent Nicotra, Chris wasn’t spared. Nicotra was infamously known for filing false DMCA claims, doxxing, hate speech, and so fourth. While all of this had been made public, it would take months for Hansen to act. Upon removing Nicotra, things cooled down a bit, but that wouldn’t last.

During the investigation, Hansen made claims that the FBI were investigating. However, when probed, he appeared to be evasive only stating that, “these things take time.” For a community who already felt betrayed, for many reasons, this wasn’t flying very well. The controversy didn’t end on that note, however.

Hansen selling the Onision story seems to have boiled the pot dry. Questions regarding the victims, who entrusted him with their stories, has become a common concern. It also raises questions into Hansen’s current investigation on “Dahvie Vanity.” In this aspect, people can’t help but wonder rather or not Chris will sell this story also.

While selling a story, even if it brings controversy, is common, blocking those who are critical is questionable at best. As a journalist, we are constantly under a microscope, people awaiting for us to slip just so they can berate us. However, doing a move that creates controversy and then blocking those who question it, leads me to question Hansen’s journalistic integrity.

The Maya chat (Gallery)

The controversial images have been omitted, only leaving a notation for their location. Below, is the entire chat, up to the point Maya sent the third image. You will notice my lack of response, though I was reading these messages as she sent them. This gallery is to prove, once and for all, that Maya herself ilhas sent the very images she tried to file a CP report on.

Maya sends alleged CP image.
After calling me disgusting, as if I had requested the images, she resends the initial image. Note that I had not responded to any of her DM’s.
Because Maya had to be the one who released the initial document, she would be incorrect. She was not doxxed as she made it public the moment she sent it online.
Not going to lie, I actually began tuning her out at this point. I had work to do and her constant bombardment of messages was getting old.
Again, without me asking, or even responding to her, she sends me image number 3. She then refers to my article as Bullshit, while making herself appear to be mentally unstable.

As I have stated, Maya sent my platform three images that she herself alleged to be CP. This means that she most likely filed a false report against the 16yo who she also alleges doxxed her when he released one of the images.

Dahvie Vanity-We Can’t Forget This

As many of you know by now, Dahvie Vanity was the former lead singer of “Blood on the Dance Floor,” during the Myspace music era in the early 2000’s. He’s now trying to rebrand himself with the name, “Kawaii Monster,” and currently has an active Instagram page (with the comments currently set to limited, of course.)

What’s scary is that with this rebranding, comes a new fanbase, which is actually working! This is exactly why we need to keep this conversation going. It’s been said that Dahvie has raped and assaulted around 100 underage girls and it’s terrifying to think that there could be more.

Most of you are probably wondering, “How can these new fan girls deny the evidence that’s easily accessible?” From my experience exposing alleged predators, even with a lot of evidence backing it up, many people stay in denial. So many people tend to think that their favorite celebrities are perfect and can do no wrong, even when it comes to women my age and older.

That doesn’t mean we should just throw our hands up and surrender, though. I know that not only can we convince some of these new fans, but also, the more we keep getting the word out, the more likely that justice will finally be served for the survivors.

I want to take a moment and address JayyVon Monroe, one of the other former members of “Blood on the Dance Floor.” I am fully aware that Dahvie bullied him, paid his medical bills, and would often threaten not to pay for serious bills such as his HIV medication. That does not absolve him of being complicit. There were many occassions he could have gone to the police, called them, something. He should’t have stayed quiet. There’s no excuse for that.

Also, there’s a video of Jayy with Dahvie making fun of Jessi Slaughter (who is now non-binary and goes by Damien.) Slut shaming them, as well as participating in a song that slut shamed them once again.

A few months ago, an anonymous source sent me a message on Twitter regarding Jayy and “Blood on the Dance Floor.” They informed me that they were a victim during that time period. They also stated that Jayy does know more than he’s admitting to and wants him to own up to it.

In case you’re wondering, no, I haven’t forgotten about Jeffree Star. I was appalled by his interview with Chris Hansen and the excuses that he made. This was his chance to own up to his mistakes he had made during that time but chose not to. The one thing that I’ll agree with Jeffree on is that Jayy needs to own up more. Other than that, Jeffree further proved that he knows how to manipulate and can easily come across as very convincing to those who may not know him well.

Please, let’s keep this conversation going. Don’t stop talking about him. I’ll also start uploading videos again in July and will be following this case more closely on my small Channel. If you’re one of his survivors and haven’t had a chance to speak yet, I’d be more than happy to talk to you for this blog. I will keep your name private if that is want you want. Your voice deserves to be heard.

The James Saroka case

My years of journalism has brought me across many vile people. With these people, I believed that I had seen the worst of society, as I have learned, I would be proven wrong. Our team stumbled upon James (Jim) Saroka by mere circumstance. While many have already begun investigating into this man, we conducted our own investigation. The results, thus far, are condensed within this article. I have also began collecting evidence in hopes of criminal charges being filed on Saroka.

Operating scams, lewd acts with minors, physical and emotional abuse are just a few of the accusations Saroka has against him. As with anybody accused of such things, we began the process of compiling information. We first researched his organization, “Feetpeace,” his Youtube estimated income, and evidence to support the lewd accusations. The internet has not failed to provide.

Abuse accusations

Several Youtubers have covered this, and other subjects already. The videos that captured my attention, were made by two individuals known as “Digital Goon” and “Repzion.” The videos show various uploads from Saroka which outline the abuse. They can be found here and here. The videos outline, in depth, the abusive nature of Saroka.

Within his many uploads, Saroka admits to physically abusing his girlfriend, Kaitlyn. While this is an arrestable offense, the abuse doesn’t end there. In multiple videos, he berates, degrades, emotionally abuses, and uses many other forms of manipulation tactics on her. While discussing these things in his various videos, not only is he proud of his actions, he appears to be proud of the attention he gets from it. Below, we have included financial stats from his Youtube channel.

The abuse isn’t just toward his girlfriend, however. There have been reports of Saroka sending lewd videos to children. In one video, allegedly sent to a girl around the age of 12-14, he is accused to have been masturbating. While this video has not been found, or confirmed, edited photos have begun to circulate the Twitter feed. One such image is below.

Provided to us by an anonymous source, this is allegedly what was sent to a child.

With the image above, a source sent us an offical statement. That statement reads as follows:

“He was a part of our youth group (bc he used to believe in God but now I’m pretty sure he believes he is God?) (ALSO I knew him bc he was one of my friends cousins) but anyway, we tried to include him in our group and such, he was a little off but never as crazy as he is now. I studied psychology in college and my theory is that he always had some type of underlying bipolar disorder, but that typically doesn’t come out until your late teens early 20’s BESIDES THE POINT. BUT he took a liking to my best friend and we were all just trying to be friends with him. I don’t remember how it got to this point but he ended up sending her a voicemail poem but it was very creepy, and it ended with us waking up dead. He said he was going to kill us all. Obviously as young teenage girls, we were freaked out so since it wasn’t something that we could go to the cops with (so we thought) bc it wasn’t actual assault, we called our pastor since this POS was acting like the actual devil. The pastor contacts him and invited him to meet up just to talk to him (since he also has a background in Psych) and just to see where his head is at and if any other actions needed to be taken. When they met up, they were talking and everything was fine and James just freaked out and attacked him. Started choking him and stuff. So of course he called the police and filed a restraining order.”

Feetpeace and scams

As if abusing his girlfriend wasn’t bad enough, the criminal activity doesn’t end there. Over the years, Saroka has made a profitable career of operating scams. The scams, which often are operated by his organization, “feetpeace international,” are directed toward helping other people. What we have learned is, at no point, has the people ever recieved any money from him. So where the money go?

Saroka often creates “donation campaigns.” Through sites, such as GoFundMe, he raises money for people in need. However, the money is actually going to James Saroka, not the targeted individual. Because his campaigns are so questionable, we began looking into the organization itself.

Using several governments sites, we ran a nationwide search for “feetpeace” and “feetpeace international.” The results came back with a message stating that no such organization could be found. This means that his organization does not exist legally. With this information, we as a platform, recognize his organization as another one of his scams.

The search results from the IRS.gov site.

For many, these scams have not gone unnoticed. We found reports, on a variety of sites, that discuss Saroka, his organization, and his scams. One site, picutred below, had reports going back to 2017. This only furthered our questions as to why he has yet to be criminally charged. While assaulting his girlfriend would most likely not be a felony, these scams would be.

One of his victims, Josh (42,) was scammed out of $60+ thousand. As he paid off Saroka’s debt, while raising his own, it was clear that this vulnerable man was paying with his health. When comparing two photos of Josh, it is apparant that after meeting Saroka, he had sacrificed food for himself.

Currently, we have reached out to Sugarloaf police department for comment. Though to date, we have not recieved a statement, we remain hopeful of obtaining one. In our inquery, we asked them about the fact no charges have ever been filed against Saroka. Should we get a response, this paragraph will be edited to reflect that.

In my years of journalism, I have come across a variety of predators and abusers. While all of them are vile, none compare to the level in which James Saroka has obtained. This man exceeds anything I have ever seen from any predator before, preying on people in multiple ways. Worst yet, this article only covered a fraction of what this pitiful excuse for a man has done. We plan to stay on this, working to get legal action taken against Saroka. Until that time, this article is the best we can do.

Twitter accused of promoting pedophilia

While most social sites, such as Youtube and Facebook, take an aggressive stance against the MAP (Minor Attracted Person) community, Twitter has taken a more obscure approach. It is through this obscurity that questions began to arise, what is Twitter’s stance?

In one section of their TOS, the site claims to have a zero tolerance policy. However, within that same segment, Twitter backtracks this claim. The evidence is pictured below.

Twitter claims, in the image above, to have a zero tolerance policy toward sexual exploitation of children.
Pictured here, Twitter seemingly backsteps their “zero tolerance” policy.

The two images, in many ways, contradict one another. Twitter states they have a zero tolerance policy. Immediately after stating this, they claim discussions related to child exploitation is not a policy violation so long as it doesn’t promote the act. That opens up a pandora’s box. Aside from speaking against the act, how does one talk about it and not glorify it? This also leads to questions regarding the MAP community, who thrive on Twitter with no reprecussion to what they tweet.

Twitters “child exploitation” policy, at best, is vague in this regard. If you have a zero tolerance policy, than that should mean zero tolerance. With the exceptions that the site has allowed, they are claiming a zero tolerance policy that isn’t really a zero tolerance. The exceptions leave many loopholes opened, and it’s abundantly clear. When reporting these MAP accounts, we almost never see any reaction from Twitter. When there is a reaction, it usually ends with a few tweets being removed while the account continues to thrive. The policy boils down to incompetence, wreckless, and lacks any sort of thought as to how it should be implimented.

The DOC articles update

It’s been awhile since we’ve touched on this subject. Within those articles, we had withheld the identification of our source, and will continue to do so. However, we have been granted permission to release the name of the facility to which the articles discussed. If you need a “refresher,” the articles can be found here, here, and here.

As you may recall, we spoke of how the whistleblower had gone months without employment, a common trend among those who speak out against law enforcement. In recent times, even members of our platform have recieved messages from people alleging to be former employees, thoug some of their profiles state they are current officers.

The articles, to which we spoke of, derived from an correctional facility out of Oklahoma. Mabel Bassett Correctional center has a long history of alleged cover-up as well as corruption among the officers. Beyond this, there are many other accusations regarding the facility. In one review, the individual alleges,

It’s infested with mole,kitchen has roaches and medical is the worst. An inmate received notice from medical that she was exposed to HEPATITIS A and medical refused to give her the vaccine, so now how many inmates have been effected in this facility????

Other accusations, some to which had been confirmed, range from officers refusing to stop fights to a potential cover-up of a death (unconformed.)

While this article is a basic update, that isn’t what caught my attention. As stated, members of our team had gotten some messages from an alleged former officer. Recapping one of the messages, the individual wrote, “I got a random message not long ago asking about the place and I looked at the reviews and saw ur comment.” When asking about the comment, I was informed that he had no memory of writing anything regarding the facility, and so we looked.

Searching on Google reviews and Facebook, it would appear that the statement was, in fact partially true. There was a comment left on Facebook, an oversight perhaps. Upon showing the member the screenshot, he did recall it, stating it was to bring awareness for those negatively effected by this place. However, the messaging person wanted information about our whistleblower. Details we cannot, and will not provide.

WoC has had a long standing policy of not revealing sources. Should the individual contact me for this information, I will be obligated into citing our policy to them. This protects our sources and prevents potential retaliation. Over the years, we have learned many things. One of these things is nobody ever asks for sources without having a reason. While the reason may very well be for information, as a platform we have an obligation to protect them; we simply can’t maintain trust and credibility if we reveal those who trust us to withold their identities.

This article isn’t much, just an update with some other details. Unless we get something more critical, we are planning to end fiture updates regarding this facility here. While we still haven’t revealed some information, such as the name of the captain, it’s not due to the lack of knowledge. In fact, we using nothing more than a lastname, we were able to find the captain on Facebook. The rest of the information is being stored away for the “just in case” factor. While we hope to never need to, we will only do another article if the facility does any future retaliation against our sources.

Dahvie Vanity: the abuse discussed

Recently, it seems that there are many things coming out regarding internet celebrities. However, lead singer for the band, ‘Blood on the dancefloor,’ Dahvie Vanity has had accusations floating around him for years. Though the abuse and rapes are coming to light now, this isn’t the first time it’s been highlighted.

Vanity began his career as an internet sensation. In the days of Myspace, his music quickly appealed to the youth, which placed him into the perfect position for exploitation. For many of his fans, he was an idol. However, not every girl kept that aspect of innocence. Vanity, according to many, made a point of targeting young girls who were already vulnerable. Some came from broken homes, others were emotionally vulnerable, all of these children were made victims by this predator.

The singers’ victims include Dianna Farrell (2007,) and the infamous Jessi Slaughter (2010.) However, there are dozens of other young women who have come forward regarding his sexual abuse. The most disturbing aspect, to all of this, is the fact Dahvie has yet to be held accountable. Although he has had encounters with law enforcement, he seems to only get a “slap on the wrist,” in one instance, a mere warning. How is this possible?

While there are two alleged investigations pending, one has to question the police, who allowed this man to walk free. In the past, Vanity had a method for silencing his victims. Writing songs about some victims, bullying them, or even sending his die-hard fans to torment them, it ensured their silence. After the rape of ‘Jessi Slaughter,’ those of us around at the time, witnessed the horrific bullying she endured. This including doxxing, death threats, phone calls, and so fourth. At the age of 12, she made an apology video, potentially under duress from Vanity and his fans. In this video, she apologizes for accusing him of rape; it was at that moment, he had won her silence.

His abuse, once exposed initially, had cost him tours, band members quitting, even friendships. Ironically, however, it didn’t appear to affect his following much. In recent times, he has made a “new” start on Facebook. His Blood on the dancefloor page remains highly active with frequent postings. This presents a problem. First, let’s talk about Facebook’s TOS.

According to the terms of service a convicted sex offender cannot have an account. This means, that should he ever face justice, Facebook would be required to disable his accounts. Because he’s not convicted, the said problem arises, one that could had been avoided if law enforcement had done their job. With over one million followers, Dahvie Vanity, currently, has access to countless teens. Through this, there are thousands of potential new victims. While Chris Hansen has taken on his investigation, it may do little in swaying Vanity’s followers. Given past ordeals involving those who expose Vanity, it may only serve to enrage them into defending their fallen idol.

Handling a dox threat

This article isn’t like the ones we typically write. Instead, this is a basic guide into handling a dox threat, as well as handling the situation after a dox. My platform, and myself, aren’t new to this. In 2017, while facing a three year smear campaign, I had been doxxed, alongside my family. Needless to say, I have had plenty of time to prepare for another round.

Initial threat

If you have never been through something like this before, the mere threat of being doxxed can be a very serious element to contend to. Having your information made publically available, without your consent, not only places you in potential danger, but those around you as well.

Rather or not the dox happened, you must remain calm. Remember, if you go into a panic, you aren’t able to think clearly and therefore miss potential evidence.

Collect Evidence

Always keep a record of the evidence. The more you have, the easier it is to prove. If the would-be doxxer is broadcasting his intentions, screencap it. The same goes if they are bragging about past doxxings. Remember, doxxing can be a felony, it can have added charges such as stalking, and you cannot afford to not have enough evidence.

Find Support

In most cases, pertaining doxxing, the individual has a history of the behavior. With that in mind, finding former victims, who have been threatened or doxxed, may be critical. The reason for this is it demonstrates a past behavior. In the law enforcement field, the past behaviors will often dictate those of the future.

Centralize

As you collect evidence, especially from other victims, find a way to centralize it. By having it in one location, law enforcement is able to get to it mich more quickly. In the case of Vincent Nicotra, we have a gallery for this very purpose.

Statements

This is especially essential when reporting it to law enforcement, links provided below. Having a written, or typed, statement will allow you to summarize without the pressure. If going to the police with a prewritten statement, always be sure to sign the end of it.

Reporting

In cases to which there are multiple victims, this maybe a challenge. When reporting, and using other victim names, try to be accurate. If you do not know their real names, try using an alias they are known by. For example:

Youtuber: John Doe

Though it isn’t their actual name, it does give law enforcement a means of contacting the individual. So who do you report these crimes to?

First off, you want to start with your local law enforcement agency, this begins the legal trail. If all they can do is take a report, that’s fine, don’t be discouraged, you are making a trail that dhows you have reported the situation. Now, once you do this, you may file an ic3 report.

An ic3 report, as it’s commonly called, is the cybercrime division of the FBI. By this point, you would had hopefully collected the evidence needed, should they ask for it. However, it never hurts to mention, within your report, other victims, centralized evidence location (if applicable,) and any information you may know regarding the doxxer.

Vincent Nicotra: Doxxing

Earlier this year, people witnessed the moment journalist, Chris Hansen, terminated his web designer, Vincent Nicotra. The termination was a result of countless unethical behaviors that ranged from false DMCA claims to doxxing. While you would think the lesson would had been clear, it appears that Nicotra is back to doxxing.

Nicotra implying that she was doxxed. Being that he posted this, implies he had it done, or did it himself.

Doxxing

Doxxing is a common method for obtaining personal information about a targeted individual. If used to harass the target, doxxing can be classified as a form of stalking, one of many reasons it is illegal. Illegal doxxing is the method of obtaining personal information and posting it online with malicious intent, exactly what Vincent has a history of doing.

Due to the nature and legalities of doxxing, social media sites have options for reporting this behavior. Twitters’, for instance, can be found here. Beyond going to social media, a victim can report these crimes to agencies such as the FBI. Information on this can be found here.

With each dox Vincent continues on innocent people, it is obvious that he either doesn’t care about the legal effects or is completely oblivious to them. The facts are simple, in a case such as this:

  • What Vincent is doing is illegal.
  • His doxxing can be classified as stalking, especially since he has doxxed some people several times.
  • Vincent can go to prison for these crimes.
  • Being that most of his victims are spread throughout several states, he could face felony charges.

While it is unlikely that Vincent will ever stop without legal involvement, we still issue this article as a warning to him. Furthermore, we present this article with the hopes that his victims are able to get the justice they deserve.
