A friend at work is going through a really rough time right now. I won't go into all the details but she's in the middle of a divorce, had to move out of her home, and is temporarily living with another friend in another county. Her soon-to-be ex was given temporary custody of their just-turned 13 year old daughter until it's all settled because of the school issue, etc. Here's the thing ... this girl, when she was just 12, opened a MySpace account that neither parent was aware of for a while. She claimed to be 15 and posted several pictures of herself and a friend that are rather provocative and they appeared to be much older than they really are. When they found out about it, supposedly the father had it removed. The girl put it back up again at a friends house. Again, it was supposed to be removed, and my friend assumed that it was. She has no computer access where she currently lives. This was last May or June. We were talking about it the other day at work, and when I got home, just out of curiosity, I went to MySpace, put in the girls' name, and IT'S STILL IN THERE! It's set to "Private" and shows no updates since last May. But the page that comes up shows a picture of this girl that makes her look much older, gives her real first and last names and the name of the very small town where they live! It's such a small town that they are the only ones in the local phone book with that last name and there is only one middle school for kids that age! Any pervent with a telephone could call their house or find her when school gets out! Of course, her mother is bordering on hysterical. I would have checked too if I were her, but she's the trusting type and believed it when she was told the account had been closed. I know some of you have done this before, so I guess my question is - how does a parent contact MySpace and have their underaged childs' MySpace account and page removed <u>permanently</u>? There must be a way to do it. Not just set to "Private", but completely removed and not allowed to repost it again so this kids' picture, real name and enough info to find her is not out there for every pedophile in the country to find? I told her I'd try to find out. Has anybody done this before????
