online-predators-michael nuccitelli-psy.d.-ipredator-oppedohunt-350x356OpPedoHunt is a group of volunteers, professionals and a Google+ community that works to identify and bring to justice online predators and child pornography merchants. OpPedoHunt seeks to help confront the growing segment of online predators who exploit children driven by deviance and financial gain. Online predators include active pedophiles, non-compliant registered sexual offenders, child molesters and the consumers & distributors of child pornography. OpPedoHunt is owned and operated by Anonymous activist, RhinoWarrior Pinkie Pie, this writer, Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. and AlphaTina Connelly. Provided below is a brief overview of OpPedoHunt, their perplexing suspension by Google Plus and the definition of online predation.

On or about Sunday June 14, 2015, Google Plus suspended the OpPedoHunt Google Plus Community stating there was content that breached their Google Plus Content & Conduct Policy. On Monday June 15, 2015, an appeal was submitted with online user content being deleted dating back to June 11th. As the moderators could not find any content breaching their content & conduct policy, identified iPredator users profiles dating back to June 11th were deleted assuming one of these or a combination thereof were the complainants.

Also on Monday June 15, 2015, this writer created a private Google Plus Community called “OpPedoHunt ” preventing identified Pedophiles and iPredators public access to our profiling, reporting and hunting efforts. After approximately a week of waiting for Google to un-suspend OpPedoHunt, that community was deleted and the private OpPedoHunt now serves as their iPredator portal and community.

Provided here is the OpPedoHunt Private link for interested parties, to request joining and iPredator’s internet safety website webpage link. Also provided is OpPedoHunt’s mission statement and the definition of online predation.

A relentless hyper vigilance, passion and patience to introduce the concept of justice to online sexual predators, child pornography consumers and distributors who seek to exploit innocent children. Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. (2015)

Online Predators

Online Predators are defined as adult online users who seek to exploit vulnerable children or adolescents for sexual or other abusive purposes. Online Predators are sexual predators who use Information and Communications Technology and the Internet to locate, target and victimize minors. Although online sexual predation occurs between adult online users, the underage minor child is the primary target.

The typology of iPredator that is categorized in Online Predators has a variety of different terms used to describe the same patterns and motivations for their abuse. Historically, those who are not familiar with the profiles of sexual predators, pedophiles and child molesters tend to view them as being easily identified and incompetent. Although the vast majority of sexual predators are neighbors, peers, relatives or mentors, the “veil of anonymity” in cyberspace makes accurate assailant identification a daunting task.

Common forums Online Predators use to target children include chat rooms, instant messaging or social networking sites for the purpose of flirting with and meeting minors for illicit sexual experiences. Online Predators often are motivated to manipulate or “groom” a minor with the ultimate goal of meeting and engaging in sexual activity, despite knowing they are engaging in illegal activities. In the simplest definition, “grooming” is best described as a sexual predator’s premeditated method of manipulating a child with the result being sexually themed.

CAIN-Cyber Attack Investigation Network

CAIN

a-cain-cyber-attack-investigation-network-internet-safety-ipredator-social-media-safety-image

Volunteer Cyber Attack Investigation Network Launched

CAIN, a volunteer cyber attack investigation network, has been launched by iPredator Inc. in Google+. Below is a brief introduction about CAIN. The link to the full article, available at iPredator’s internet safety website, is available at the end of this post.   

CAIN, Cyber Attack Investigation Network, is a group of online users who volunteer their time helping other online users that are cyberstalked, cyberbullied, internet trolled, sexually solicited, cyber harassed, exploited, deceived and defamed. In addition to helping online users, CAIN actively searches for those who meet criteria for iPredator. If the assailant(s) is an iPredator, they are tracked, reported, blocked and monitored until Google+ or the host social networking site deletes and bans their profile.

When the assailant is profiled as being high risk, CAIN members will investigate the assailant outside of Google+ or the host social networking site to assess if they are actively involved in cybercriminal and/or deviant behaviors requiring law enforcement intervention. CAIN also disseminates internet safety and cyber attack prevention information relevant to online users of all ages.

CAIN G+ Community: https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/107895202001874547216

I created the concept of CAIN, Cyber Attack Investigation Network, in late 2012 to be an adjunct to the iPredator Team. Both were created to help financially strapped & pediatric online users who are abused, exploited and harmed online. Having a plethora of other projects and helping iPredator targets, I was prevented from having the time to focus on launching these groups as planned. iPredator Team and CAIN were scheduled for some time in the near future. iPredator Team description is as follows:

It was not until I met Ms. Tina Connelly (+Tina Connelly) in Google+ that my schedule for CAIN was moved up to October 2014. Interacting with Ms. Connelly in Google+, I was slowly introduced to the online behaviors of the most incredible group of Google+ members who worked in small groups to hunt and identify iPredators.

a-cain-cyber-attack-investigation-network-internet-safety-ipredator-social-media-safety-image

The most astonishing fact I learned is that they are primarily high school and college aged online users. Ranging from fourteen years old to early twenties, they spend their time searching Google+ for cyberstalkers, cyberbullies, internet trolls, online sexual predator, cyber harassers and online users who use social networking sites to exploit, deceive and defame others. Instead of spending time socializing and networking, like the vast majority of online users who use Google+, they predominantly focus on hunting iPredators.

Once they identify and compile proof of the iPredator’s malevolent and nefarious online activities, they alert their followers, report them to Google+ and then block them. Like a pack of wolves working in unison, they track iPredators until Google+ suspends their profiles or the iPredator cancels their own account not being able to continue in their cyber abuse or online deception.

For anyone who reads this article, I strongly suggest you create a Google+ profile. I cannot recommend enough setting up a profile allowing you to watch the hunters become the hunted. The best metaphor I can use to explain their talents is that of a wolf pack on the hunt for their next meal. Tenacious, coordinated, relentless and innovative best describes their online investigation tactics. In the realm of humility, I have yet to see one of them brag or target online users fueled by retribution or envy. They do not ask to be paid, recognized or thanked by Google for the valuable service they provide Google+ members and all online users. It is time for them to be recognized and this why I have accelerated CAIN’s introduction.

If not interested in clicking to another site, provided below are useful concept definitions.

a-dark-psychology-darkside-of-cyberspace-criminal-minds-digital-forensics-dr-internet-safety-michael nuccitelli authored-ipredator-image

Dark Psychology: Dark Psychology is the study of the human condition as it relates to the psychological nature of people to prey upon other people motivated by criminal and/or deviant drives that lack purpose and general assumptions of instinctual drives and social sciences theory. All of humanity has the potentiality to victimize humans and other living creatures. While many restrain or sublimate this tendency, some act upon these impulses. Dark Psychology seeks to understand those thoughts, feelings, perceptions and subjective processing systems that lead to predatory behavior that is antithetical to contemporary understandings of human behavior. Dark Psychology assumes that criminal, deviant and abusive behaviors are purposive and have some rational, goal-oriented motivation 99% of the time. It is the remaining 1%, Dark Psychology parts from Teleology.

Dark Psychology encompasses all that makes us who we are in relationship to our dark side. All cultures, faiths and humanity have this proverbial cancer. From the moment we are born to the time of death, there is a side hidden within us that some have called “Evil” and others have defined as criminal, deviant or psychopathic. Dark Psychology posits there are people who commit these same acts and do so not for power, money, sex, retribution or any other known purpose. They commit horrid acts without a goal. Simplified, their ends do not justify their means. There are people who violate and injure others for the sake of doing so. Within in all of us is this potential. A potential to harm others without cause, explanation, or purpose is the area explored. Dark Psychology assumes this dark potential is incredibly complex and even more difficult to define.

iPredator

iPredator: A person, group or nation who, directly or indirectly, engages in exploitation, victimization, coercion, stalking, theft or disparagement of others using Information and Communications Technology [ICT]. iPredators are driven by deviant fantasies, desires for power and control, retribution, religious fanaticism, political reprisal, psychiatric illness, perceptual distortions, peer acceptance or personal and financial gain. iPredators can be any age or gender and are not bound by economic status, race, religion or national heritage. iPredator is a global term used to distinguish anyone who engages in criminal, coercive, deviant or abusive behaviors using ICT. Central to the construct is the premise that Information Age criminals, deviants and the violently disturbed are psychopathological classifications new to humanity.

Whether the offender is a cyberbully, cyberstalker, cyber harasser, internet troll, cybercriminal, online sexual predator, cyber terrorist, online child pornography consumer/distributor, online psychopath or engaged in internet defamation or nefarious cyber deception, they fall within the scope of iPredator. The three criteria used to define an iPredator include:

  1. A self-awareness of causing harm to others, directly or indirectly, using ICT.
  2. The usages of ICT to obtain, exchange, deliver and tamper with harmful information.
  3. A general understanding of Cyberstealth used to engage in criminal or deviant activities or to profile, identify, locate, stalk and engage a target.

Unlike human predators prior to the Information Age, iPredators rely on the multitude of benefits offered by Information and Communications Technology [ICT]. These assistances include exchange of information over long distances, rapidity of information exchanged and the seemingly infinite access to data available. Malevolent in intent, iPredators rely on their capacity to deceive others using ICT in the abstract and artificial electronic universe known as cyberspace. Therefore, as the internet naturally offers all ICT users anonymity, if they decide, iPredators actively design online profiles and diversionary tactics to remain undetected and untraceable.

Cyberstealth, a sub-tenet of iPredator, is a covert method by which iPredators attempt to establish and sustain complete anonymity while they engage in ICT activities planning their next assault, investigating innovative surveillance technologies or researching the social profiles of their next target. Concurrent with the concept of Cyberstealth is iPredator Victim Intuition [IVI]. An iPredator’s IVI is their aptitude to sense a target’s ODDOR [Offline Distress Dictates Online Response], online & offline vulnerabilities, psychological weaknesses, technological limitations, increasing their success of a cyber-attack with minimal ramifications.

a-dark-psychology-darkside-of-cyberspace-criminal-minds-digital-forensics-dr-internet-safety-michael nuccitelli authored-ipredator-image

iPredator Bridge

iPredator Bridge: iPredator Bridge is a theoretical tenet of iPredator representing the psychological, perceptual & behavioral trajectory of people who use Information and Communications Technology [ICT] to harm others motivate by self-righteousness, moral turpitude, religious, political, philosophical convictions and pro-social perceptual distortions. Not initially driven by criminal, malevolent or deviant endeavors, iPredator Bridge seeks to define why some people approach the nefarious and malevolent realm of iPredator, decide to proceed, and then continue along a trajectory where their cognitive, affective, behavioral and perceptual actions harm others or societies.

Similar to the iPredator, they are motivated by personal convictions, greed, power, control, narcissism or psychopathology. Different from the iPredator, they have yet to engage in criminal & deviant activities using ICT or use complex perceptual distortions to validate the harm they cause. iPredator Bridge investigates why some people draw near to this realm and either proceed in their maladaptive trajectory or cease and desist. Hidden in cyberspace, and through ICT, they contemplate the benefits and detriments, proceed, and then continue a path where their cognitive and perceptual processes are focused upon directly or indirectly harming others. For those who cross this proverbial bridge, they enter a world where their choices are increasingly governed by criminal, deviant, immoral and maladaptive processes.

Although it is assumed all humanity, has residing deep in their psyche, the potential & Dark Psychology for behaving in harmful and malevolent ways they rarely or never activate, ICT and cyberspace offers a direct connection and psychological route to the dark side. Just as ICT and cyberspace is incredibly pro-social and beneficial to humanity, these same technological advancements can lead humanity to diabolical and sinister endeavors. iPredator Bridge is a symbolic representation of the approach, route and initial crossing into the realm of the iPredator. In a rudimentary and abstract way, it is posited that cyberspace, ICT and all future technological advancements, related to information technology, is an extension of the mind and the instinctual drives of the collective brain to replicate itself outside a human organism. Related to this postulate are the theoretical tenets of Carl Jung [1875-1961] and his construct of the Collective Unconscious.

“The Information Age technocentric concept of being “connected” is actually a paradox of disconnection causing us to lose our instinctual drives for social cohesion, allegiance and selflessness. As our dependency upon Information and Communications Technology [ICT] grows, spreading throughout our collective human consciousness, the less we care for our neighbors and the more we delude ourselves into thinking that online connections are far more valuable than realty based relationships.” Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.

Darkside of Cyberspace Review

a-darkside-of-cyberspace-dark-psychology-cyberspace-dr-internet-safety-michael nuccitelli authored-ipredator-image

Darkside of Cyberspace

Darkside of Cyberspace is a metaphor and conceptual framework defining a virtual environmental realm that includes all criminal, deviant, deceptive, harmful and malevolent activities in the abstract universe of cyberspace. Whereas iPredator is a criminal, deviant and disturbed typology construct, Darkside of Cyberspace also includes legal and illegal online activities, as well as, destructive and self-destructive online behaviors.” Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D., iPredator Inc. [2013]

iPredator is an Information Age Forensics, Cyber Criminal Psychology and Human Consciousness construct. This conceptual framework began construction in 2009 and will inevitably be amended in time. Given this concept is new combined with having been constructed at the beginning of the Information Age, the construct author, Michael Nuccitelli Psy.D., has compiled for your reference many of the definitions he designed or accessed in his mission to create a comprehensive framework describing what he terms, the Dark Side of Cyberspace.

iPredator: A person, group or nation who, directly or indirectly, engages in exploitation, victimization, coercion, stalking, theft or disparagement of others using Information and Communications Technology [ICT]. iPredators are driven by deviant fantasies, desires for power and control, retribution, religious fanaticism, political reprisal, psychiatric illness, perceptual distortions, peer acceptance or personal and financial gain. iPredators can be any age or gender and are not bound by economic status, race, religion or national heritage. iPredator is a global term used to distinguish anyone who engages in criminal, coercive, deviant or abusive behaviors using ICT. Central to the construct is the premise that Information Age criminals, deviants and the violently disturbed are psychopathological classifications new to humanity.

Whether the offender is a cyberbully, cyberstalker, cyber harasser, internet troll, cybercriminal, online sexual predator, cyber terrorist, online child pornography consumer and distributor or engaged in internet defamation or nefarious online deception, they fall within the scope of iPredator. The three criteria used to define an iPredator include:

  • A self-awareness of causing harm to others, directly or indirectly, using ICT.
  • The usage of ICT to obtain, tamper with, exchange and deliver harmful information.
  • A general understanding of Cyberstealth used to engage in criminal or deviant activities or to profile, identify, locate, stalk and engage a target.

Unlike human predators prior to the Information Age, iPredators include the multitude of benefits offered by Information and Communications Technology [ICT]. These assistances include exchange of information over long distances, rapidity of information exchanged and the seemingly infinite access to data available. Malevolent in intent, iPredators rely on their capacity to deceive others using ICT in the abstract and artificial electronic universe known as cyberspace. Therefore, as the internet naturally offers all ICT users anonymity, if they decide, iPredators actively design online profiles and diversionary tactics to remain undetected and untraceable.

Cyberstealth, a sub-tenet of iPredator, is a covert method by which iPredators attempt to establish and sustain complete anonymity while they engage in ICT activities planning their next assault, investigating innovative surveillance technologies or researching the social profiles of their next target. Concurrent with the concept of Cyberstealth is iPredator Victim Intuition [IVI]. An iPredator’s IVI is their aptitude to sense a target’s ODDOR [Offline Distress Dictates Online Response], online & offline vulnerabilities, psychological weaknesses, technological limitations, increasing their success of a cyber-attack with minimal ramifications.

iPredator Bridge

iPredator Bridge: iPredator Bridge is a theoretical tenet of iPredator representing the psychological, perceptual & behavioral trajectory of people who use Information and Communications Technology [ICT] to harm others motivate by self-righteousness, moral turpitude, religious, political, philosophical convictions and pro-social perceptual distortions. Not initially driven by criminal, malevolent or deviant endeavors, iPredator Bridge seeks to define why some people approach the nefarious and malevolent realm of iPredator, decide to proceed, and then continue along a trajectory where their cognitive, affective, behavioral and perceptual actions harm others or societies.

Similar to the iPredator, they are motivated by personal convictions, greed, power, control, narcissism or psychopathology. Different from the iPredator, they have yet to engage in criminal & deviant activities using ICT or use complex perceptual distortions to validate the harm they cause. iPredator Bridge investigates why some people draw near to this realm and either proceed in their maladaptive trajectory or cease and desist. Hidden in cyberspace, and through ICT, they contemplate the benefits and detriments, proceed, and then continue a path where their cognitive and perceptual processes are focused upon directly or indirectly harming others. For those who cross this proverbial bridge, they enter a world where their choices are increasingly governed by criminal, deviant, immoral and maladaptive processes.

Although it is assumed all humanity, has residing deep in their psyche, the potential & Dark Psychology for behaving in harmful and malevolent ways they rarely or never activate, ICT and cyberspace offers a direct connection and psychological route to the dark side. Just as ICT and cyberspace is incredibly pro-social and beneficial to humanity, these same technological advancements can lead humanity to diabolical and sinister endeavors. iPredator Bridge is a symbolic representation of the approach, route and initial crossing into the realm of the iPredator. In a rudimentary and abstract way, it is posited that cyberspace, ICT and all future technological advancements, related to information technology, is an extension of the mind and the instinctual drives of the collective brain to replicate itself outside a human organism. Related to this postulate are the theoretical tenets of Carl Jung [1875-1961] and his construct of the Collective Unconscious.

“The Information Age technocentric concept of being “connected” is actually a paradox of disconnection causing us to lose our instinctual drives for social cohesion, allegiance and selflessness. As our dependency upon Information and Communications Technology [ICT] grows, spreading throughout our collective human consciousness, the less we care for our neighbors and the more we delude ourselves into thinking that online connections are far more valuable than realty based relationships.” Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.

Online Deception Q & A

ONLINE DECEPTION

online-deception-question-answer-online-deception-identity-cloaking-construct-cyberstealth-internet-safety-ipredator-image

Types of Online Deception

Disinformation [aka, Online Deception, Cyberstealth]: Unlike classic deception used by traditional criminals and deviants, Disinformation [aka, Online Deception, Cyberstealth] completely relies on the anonymity and “veil of invisibility” available to all ICT users. The primary difference between Disinformation and Cyberstealth are the activities iPredators and ICT users engage in. In this writer’s construct, Cyberstealth is reserved for iPredators who actively plan a strategy that have criminal, deviant and harmful implications to targeted victims. Disinformation includes all forms of Cyberstealth, but also includes deceptive practices that do not have elements of crime, defiance or harm against others. Disinformation does not require an ICT user to engage in nefarious, deviant or malevolent activities. Although all forms of deception are problematic, Disinformation can be as subtle of what many call a “white lie.”

Another difference is when iPredators use Cyberstealth to hide their identity from victims. In general, iPredators use Cyberstealth when their actions involve illegal activities and hiding their identity is paramount to reduce being identified, apprehended and prosecuted. ICT users who evaluate their odds of being identified, develop tactics and strategies to minimize identification are motivated by criminal, deviant & harmful causes are iPredators using Cyberstealth.

IBWSC

Online Deception Warning Signs Checklist (IBWSC): Based on the iPredator Bridge construct, the Online Deception Warning Signs Checklist is a 50 item checklist designed to investigate if a loved one, colleague or peer is participating in or close to participating in harmful online and/or ICT activities towards others. Multiple affirmative responses to IBWSC statements suggests the person being queried exhibits patterned and/or observable behavioral patterns indicating they may be engaged in online deceptive activities. The IBWSC focuses on confirmed behavioral observations and not upon personal convictions and/or philosophical reasons for harming others online or using ICT.

Based on iPredator Bridge construct, the IBWSC assumes there are both people engaged in nefarious and malevolent activities and those engaged in harming others driven by distorted beliefs they are doing so for righteous and/or morally supported reasons. The common thread identical in both segments is the victims they target suffer from their attacks. The IBWSC has not been validated by clinical research, a governing body or academic institution. It has been compiled and published to be a point of reference to educate and assist anyone who is concerned that they, their children, business or community are in the presence of an iPredator or someone in transit to becoming an iPredator.

CYBERSTEALTH

Cyberstealth: Cyberstealth is a concept formulated along with iPredator and is a term used to define a method and/or strategy by which iPredators use Information and Communications Technology (ICT) , if they so choose, to establish and sustain complete anonymity while they troll and stalk a target. Cyberstealth is a methodology entrenched in Information Age Deception or also called online deception. Given the Internet inherently affords everyone anonymity, Cyberstealth used by iPredators range from negligible to highly complex and multi-faceted. The rationale for using “stealth” in the suffix of this term, serves to remind ICT users the primary intent fueling iPredators. This intent is to hide their identity by designing false online profiles, identities, covert tactics and methods to ensure their identities remain concealed reducing their probability of identification, apprehension and punishment.

Unlike classic deception used by traditional criminals and deviants, Online Deception completely relies on the anonymity and “veil of invisibility” available to all ICT users. The primary difference between Information Age Deception and Cyberstealth are the activities iPredators and ICT users engage in. In this writer’s construct, Cyberstealth is reserved for iPredators who actively plan a strategy that have criminal, deviant and harmful implications to targeted victims. Information Age Deception includes all forms of Cyberstealth, but also includes deceptive practices that do not have elements of crime, defiance or harm against others.

“Whether used to influence the masses or in cyberspace to persuade others into divulging confidential or sensitive information, social engineering requires psychological manipulation to control a person, group or nation. In the Information Age, children can be just as effective at social engineering as adults and cause driven groups.” Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. (2014)

IPREDATOR

iPredator: A person, group or nation who, directly or indirectly, engages in exploitation, victimization, coercion, stalking, theft or disparagement of others using Information and Communications Technology [ICT]. iPredators are driven by deviant fantasies, desires for power and control, retribution, religious fanaticism, political reprisal, psychiatric illness, perceptual distortions, peer acceptance or personal and financial gain. iPredators can be any age or gender and are not bound by economic status, race, religion or national heritage. iPredator is a global term used to distinguish anyone who engages in criminal, coercive, deviant or abusive behaviors using ICT.
