Prank Nets Arrest

Boys’ MySpace prank results in sex crime arrest:

This amuses me to no end…

FONTANA, Calif. – A group of boys who posed as a 15-year-old girl for an Internet prank ended up helping police arrest a 48-year-old man who tried to meet the fictitious teenager for sex, authorities said.

The five boys had created a fake profile of a girl on, a social networking Web site, to cheer up a friend who had recently broken up with his girlfriend.

But soon, a man began sending messages to the “girl” and their conversations began to have sexual overtones, said Fontana police Sgt. William Megenney.

The man also sent the “girl” his picture and arranged to meet her at a public park. The boys went to the park and, when the man arrived, they called police.

Michael Ramos, 48, of Fontana, was booked into West Valley Detention Center on Monday for investigation of felony attempted lewd and lascivious conduct with a child and for an outstanding warrant, Megenney said.

Kudos to these boys for putting this scumbag behind bars.

This MySpace profile matches up with the suspect’s name, age, and location. That’s another reason why you shouldn’t post all your personal information on MySpace. Then assholes like me get to ridicule you for eternity.

  1. Great story! Refreshing to hear something good about our kids. Those boys should be proud of themselves, I bet thier parents are. Another sex offender caught, one less creep of the streets (at least for a little while!)


  2. This story was published in I believe Seventeen magazine. It was a great article and the boys should indeed be proud.
