Letzgo Hunting were a team of parents that wanted to make a change to the way the internet is used by children, we wished to educated parents to the shocking things that COULD happen to their children whilst using the "World Wide Web"
You do not have to look far to see storys depicting the abuse of children, they are in our papers on a daily basis. It was my belief when starting LGH that parents were smug to this and often believed "It wouldn't ever happen to us" when in fact it is something that can happen after just short chat with a person, we could people using everyday websites such as Facebook and Tagged, these websites ALLOW children as young as 13 to join them.
We created profiles as fake children online and waited for people to approach us, we didnt approach on anyone or force anyone to say anything they didnt want to, we never EVER asked for material that a child should not see. we NEVER asked for a meet and allowed the person we were talking to to instigate EVERYTHING they wished to say.

That snippet of conversation was taken from a conversation between a 26 year old male and a 14 year old girl, goes to show that these people KNEW they were breaking the law.
This next snipit was between our 14 year old girl and a 29 year old male who committed suicide, it may prove to be a little contrivercial that im including it here but there has been alot of speculation that he committed suicide because "he was framed."
why would we frame anyone? theres plenty of sexual predators out there without the need to set anyone up.

One of the biggest speculations we revieved was "what if they were showing up to warn the girl not to meet strangers." Well, if that was the case do you really think we would have shown up? we didnt meet people who wanted to be friends, we met people we strongly believed were a serious and sexual threat to children.
we spent a year talking to over 200 people, most of which were decent people and once informed of an age they continued on with their daily tasks and forgot about us, but, for some, the urge was just to much.
Other time we realised some of the people we were talking to tried to maniplute the children with false promises and hope, one of the biggest cases of this was David Harmon, a presenter for EuroSports, He said he may be able to get our 14 year old decoy a place on tv, what a complete fabrication this really was, he was a presenter looking to keep a child quiet, just like Jimmy Saville. These people are a real threat to the future generations and more should be done to stop these people, it should be the predators that are living in fear, not our innocent children.
I have dealt with alot of victims of child abuse thought my investigations, including a case we managed to reveal ourselves, James Stone, Convicted and Sentenced to 8 Years after admitting to one of or decoys he had a sexual relationship with a person under 16, this persons mother had actually contacted us and tipped us off, all she suspected was "he was talking dirty to her daughter, possibly grooming."
James Stone almost immediately told our 14 year old decoy that he was masturbating to a photo of her, he sent photos of his penis to us and tried to offer "his services" in helping our inexperienced decoy to lose her virginity.
You may ask yourself after getting such positive results and such a long sentence, why didn't we continue? Well, allow me to explain.
We had a constant struggle with another team of Hunters, constant threats to out myself and just generally being insulted, i continued to work my way as it was working for me and then we had the suicide come to light, our statement on this has always remained the same. "Mr Cleary's death is an unfortunate event, we are sorry for his familys loss and we are also sorry that he will never be proven guilty or innocent in a court of law. however Letzgo Hunting still stand firm in that on the day we met Mr Cleary he posed an IMMEDIATE RISK TO THE SAFETY OF A CHILD, we would not have changed anything we had done."
Now. the reason i closed down the team, this was not because of other Hunting groups, it was not because of Mr Clearys Death.
I closed Letzgo Hunting because of the Daily Mail and their attempts to expose my team, I use the team EXPOSE very lightly, NONE of my team have a criminal record, however, my team members are ALL parents and family orientated people with a passion to the protection of children. If we were to walk down a street and see a parent hitting a child we would have no issues in stepping in to protect that child.
so why were we worried about being exposed you may ask? If we were to be exposed it would put our familys in immediate danger from Paedophiles, Familys of people caught and any individual that had an unhealthy thought process towards children.
NOTHING WOULD MAKE ME HAPPIER THAN TO HAVE BEEN ABLE TO CONTINUE WITH CATCHING THESE PEOPLE.
I now have future plans on educating children directly on the risks of the internet and social media.
