Description

Dateline NBC set up hidden cameras inside a rented Northern Virginia house in order to catch men on the Internet who were trying to have sex with minors. During their investigation, 19 men showed up at the house because they thought they were about to have sex with a minor. This report brought attention to "one of the fastest growing crimes in America" and also offered suggestions to parents on how to make computers safer for children.
