  1. Predators Watch is a one of several websites created at the end of 2012(http://www.statscrop.com/www/predatorswatch.com ) that claim to allow submissions of anonymous reports so that individuals are included in its directory-style database as sexual predators with an “active” status. An anonymous reporter can submit an individual’s name, age, picture, location, phone number, and/or e-mail address. Reported individuals are immediately included in the directory, in which anyone can browse individuals through a search engine—by location, name, e-mail address, or phone number. They then send the person who was reported an email telling them they will be removed from the site for a fee of $99.95.

    FEATURES
    Predators Watch does not limit the location from which an individual can make an anonymous report or the location of reported individuals. The website also does not provide a physical address for the organization or the website creators’ contact information.

    It does, however, have a Frequently Asked Questions page. On this page the creators inform visitors that they cannot be sued for Defamation|libel due to the Communications Decency Act (which implies that the creators are from the United States, but it is not explicitly stated in the website).

    It is also stated in the Frequently Asked Questions page that in order to offset the costs associated with changing the database’s contents on an individual basis, individuals can delete anyone from the directory if they pay a one-time fee of $99.95 online.

    HISTORY

Extortion is a crime in many states, and a federal crime to the extent it uses interstate communication.

    Similarly, to the extent the site makes deliberately false statements of fact to extort money, its purveyors may have committed fraud, which is both a state and federal crime.”” Gizmodo claims that this site “”is designed exclusively to shame women in the name of fake puritanism, they will demand $100 from the abuse victim before taking down the file.
