Chat room where there are sex pinoy

"We were swamped by men looking for contact, looking for sexual activities with us," Guyt said.

During a demonstration for AP early Monday, one of the researchers logged into a public chat room as Sweetie - identifying himself by her purported age, gender and country of origin.

(CBS/AP) AMSTERDAM - Dutch children's rights activists used a computer-generated image of a 10-year-old Philippine girl to catch suspected sex predators and say that, as a result, they successfully unmasked 1,000 Internet users from 71 countries who wanted to pay to watch a child engage in sex acts via webcam.

Typically this involves asking a victim to send a small amount of money to buy food, pay for daily living expenses, internet access, hiring a private room with a webcam or numerous other variations on the above.

In an online sting operated from an anonymous warehouse office in an Amsterdam industrial park, activists from Terre des Hommes set out to gauge the scale of a fast-growing Internet phenomenon the Netherlands-based group calls webcam child sex tourism.

The result was shocking, the group's director of projects, Has Guyt, told The Associated Press on Monday.

"If we don't intervene soon, this sinister phenomenon will totally run out of control," said Terre des Hommes director of projects Hans Guyt as he stood in front of a wall plastered with the pixelated faces of adults duped by "Sweetie." He said webcam sex with minors - which usually involves men from wealthy Western countries paying children from impoverished countries for sex shows - is still "a cottage industry" and needs to be stamped out now. "Our worst scenario is that the same thing will happen with this as has happened with child pornography - that is now a multibillion dollar industry in the hands of criminal gangs." Terre des Hommes has posted a documentary about its 10-week investigation on You Tube and begun a petition aimed at pressing police and politicians to do more to halt such illegal sex shows. present legislation is suitable and more than enough to cover these acts," Guyt said, as he called for a "novel approach" to policing the problem.

Terre des Hommes' novel approach involved using Sweetie, a 3D digital animated girl, as an online disguise for a group of researchers who then chatted to potential clients online.
