On 8-25-20 the Polk County Sheriff’s Office received information about a website teenagers have
been using called omegle.com. It is reported that children learned about this site through the Tik
Tok app. Investigators looked into the site and found that it is a chat and video chat format where
you do not need an account or login to access. There is a link to jerkmate.com, a pornography site,
on the homepage. Within seconds of entering the chat room Investigators were sent pornography
sites, social media accounts from other users, and were asked to give users access to their social
media accounts. Investigators were also solicited to have sexual conversations.
Parents are reminded that predators use social media platforms to solicit, send, and receive child
pornography, and that every year we receive reports of teenagers sharing inappropriate photos of
other teenagers through social media.
