Anne Arundel County Police have sent out an alert to parents warning them about MovieStar Planet, an online social media game.
The game targets children between the ages of 8 and 15. In the game, children interact with each other through chat rooms and a guest book where users can write messages and greetings. Users can also create their own virtual “movie star” that can be used in movies, chat rooms, and games. Unfortunately, individuals who wish to exploit children have been contacting children through this site, police say. They are requesting personal information and photos from the children, according to police.
Parents should be alert to this site and other online activates involving their young children, police warn.
