According to authorities, it is not uncommon for a predator to pose as a teenager by creating a fake profile so thy can interact with the child. They prey on the vulnerable, the less than confident, and those who might have attention seeking behaviors. The grooming process can be a matter of days or weeks. The predator will continue to befriend the child and when the time is right they might ask for pictures, to chat more explicitly, or worse, to meet up in person.
