This KCTV investigation probed the claims of the group Perverted Justice, which exposes men who use the Internet to prey on children. A member of Perverted Justice would pose as a minor in an Internet chat room and wait for an adult man to approach the "minor" about sex. The "minor" would then arrange to meet the man at a home rented by KCTV. After four days, 30 men made appointments to meet the "minor" for sex. Sixteen came to the door and were confronted by the news crew. The investigation showed how prevalent and serious the problem of Internet predators is.
