Internet Prankster teaches kids a valuable lesson on stranger danger

Chris Persin is a YouTube prankster who probably scared the life, and probably some crap, out of several teen girls.

On his YouTube page, Persin usually does social experiments, and pranks. But this time, things got a little too real when the 21-year-old New Yorker pretended to be a 15-year-old boy, and chatted up a few teen girls online to see if they would meet him. And he did all of this while the girl’s parent’s permission.

According to The Daily Mail:

YouTube star Coby Persin, 21, set out to help some New York-area parents teach their children how real the threat of pedophiles, rapists, and abductors truly is, posing as a teen himself and luring their young daughters into potentially dangerous situations by first striking up conversations with them on Facebook. 

This is how he says he engaged the girls online:

‘I made a fake profile on Facebook posing as a 15-year-old boy,’ Coby explains, showing off a page for a made-up teen named Jason Biazzio. ‘With their parents’ permission, I friend-requested three girls ages 14, 13, and 12.’

Coby didn’t have to work hard to set the groundwork for a first meeting with any of these young ladies, merely chatting with them online or via text for three or four days before arranging to meet up at their homes or somewhere nearby.

What’s so sad is that each and every girl he engaged with fell for the bait. Watch the video to see how things turned out for the girls. It may be worth your salt to watch it with your family.

Oh my! Would you have participated in this social experiment? What are your thoughts about it? Sound off below.
