Education to Defeat Deception

We partner with an energetic and committed team in the Philippines, The Honor 1000 Team, in the fight against trafficking and the growing rates of cybersex crime. Weekly sessions are conducted with elementary students to promote awareness and educate them of the various risks online.

The alarming reality is that each week, 2 out of every 10 students share their personal experiences of online phishing, account racking, and deception.

Phishing
Phishing is when seemingly harmless links get through to young people’s inboxes. These links are actually phishing mechanisms that obtain their personal information once clicked.

Racking
Since not all Filipino households have access to the Internet, so young people frequently visit computer rental shops to check on their social media accounts, exposing them to risks as their log on information become easily accessible to strangers if they are not cautious enough. Several students experienced racking, that is, their accounts were “stolen” and used to share pornographic videos and photos online without their knowledge or permission.
Deception
Strangers connect with young people, engage them in conversations, and later on try to deceive and convince them to get into a personal relationship.

We are thankful that these students are gradually becoming better informed of the various forms of luring and deception happening online, and how they can avoid or stop them.

Let’s stop trafficking and cybersex crimes before they even happen. Let’s continue to promote awareness and advocate to educate young people.
