Recently Catawba County Schools and the Catawba County Sheriff’s Office became aware of two instances where students were contacted via the Internet by persons who desired to exploit them.

These persons contacted both students on their Chromebooks via chat rooms associated with internet-based gaming sites. These persons then provided students with a link inviting them to a Zoom meeting where attempts were made to exploit them by soliciting inappropriate images and videos.
