L.A. County Kik kreeper extorted girls into sex
Josh Manuel Magana

27-year-old Josh Manuel Magana, of Whittier, California, is accused of allegedly extorting under age girls into sex using the mobile messaging app Kik.

Here’s what parents and kids need to know about how Magana is said to have found one of his victims…

Detectives said 27-year-old Josh Manuel Magana had learned enough about the victim through her social media posts to convince her that he knew where she lived and what school she attended.

As I’ve said before, online predators don’t need very much information from your kids’ social media accounts to find out where they live, work or go to school. The most innocent picture could provide them with the information they may need. Anyway, back to Magana.

Using the screen name “thegiftedmonster”, Magana reportedly threatened his victim into sending him explicit pictures. Once he received the pictures, he then threatened the victim into having sex with him or he would make the pictures public. One of his victims didn’t even come forward until she was contacted by police. Magana is accused of using this scheme to sexually assault both a 16 and 17-year-old girl in two separate incidents, but let’s be honest, this is nothing short of rape.

Police believe that Magana may have more victims…

Detectives said they believe Magana has more victims, and urged anyone who had been contacted by “thegiftedmonster” to call the Los Angeles Regional Human Trafficking Task Force at (323) 526-5156.

Magana is being held on close to $1M bail.

Las Vegas man accused of being craigslist and Kik kreeper

Mario Alston

38-year-old Mario Alston, of Las Vegas, is accused of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl from nearby Henderson, Nevada. Alston allegedly placed an ad on craigslist that the victim is said to have responded to. The contents of the ad are as of yet unknown, however, the conversation soon moved to the mobile messaging app Kik, where the victim is said to have given Alston her address. When the girl’s parents weren’t home Alston reportedly went to the home and sexually assaulted the girl.

I know this sounds like just another Kik kreeper, because the app is rampant with sex offenders and pedophiles, but there is something I wanted to address from the article I linked to.

Detectives say Alston and the 13-year-old started communicating non-stop on the “Kik” app. It’s an app where messages can be hidden from parents.

Emphasis mine.

While Kik is a preferred tool of predators, the messages are only hidden from parents if parents choose not to check their kids’ phones. Despite all of its faults it’s not an app designed to be hidden from parents, you just have to now what to look for. I’ve even included a picture of what the app icon looks like at right. Both Android phones and iPhones have a button that list all the apps that are on the phone. Don’t just rely on the apps that are on the phone’s main screen. Again, you may trust your child, but do you trust the strangers they may be talking to?

Who watches the watchmen?: Kik kreeper cop told girl to stop crying in pictures

Who watches the watchmen?: Kik kreeper cop told girl to stop crying in pictures
Chris Wilbanks

Chris Wilbanks was a Sergeant with the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office in South Carolina. That was until he was arrested for allegedly using the mobile messaging app Kik in order to extort explicit pictures from an 11-year-old girl from Washington.

Using the screen name of ‘Redneck Rick’, Wilbanks is said to have posed as a 14-year-old boy who went to the victim’s school.

Wilbanks asked the girl for photos of her wearing athletic apparel and a swimsuit. Eventually, Wilbanks asked for nude photos of the girl, court records state.

The girl refused at first, but Wilbanks told her he would show the photos to other people unless she sent more, according to the court records.

Court records indicate the girl was visibly upset and crying in several of the images. Wilbanks told her not to look so upset and to smile, according to those records.

Police in Washington were alerted to the messages by the victim’s mother. Homeland Security then became involved in the investigation, which led to the arrest of Wilbanks.

If there is anything lower than a pedophile it has to be someone who’s entrusted to defend the public who’s also a pedophile. Let’s also not forget that no 11-year-old needs to be on Kik, not only becuause Kik’s terms of service require their users to be older, but also because Kik is a hive of sex offenders, pedophiles, and child porn collectors. All your kids need to be on Kik is a phone or tablet and a wi-fi connection.

UPDATE 2/11/2017: This past Thursday, Wilbanks was ordered to remain in custody after he allegedly destroyed evidence. He also cried in court. Authorities say that he also communicated with his victim on Kik while on duty.

He’s looking at 15 to 30 years behind bars.

Isaac Kemp may be the ultimate Kik kreeper

Isaac Kemp may be the ultimate Kik kreeper

I really wanted to find a mugshot of this creep, but I couldn’t find one with 100% certainty that it was him, but I digress.

44-year-old Isaac Kemp of Draper, Utah, has been charged with 65 felonies in the state of Utah concerning the solicitation of two underage girls from Nebraska and North Carolina, but that description barely scratches the surface.

Kemp is also accused of allegedly raping an underage girl from Nebraska after posing as a 16-year-old boy on Kik. After collecting several explicit pictures and videos of the girl he then reportedly told her that his ‘uncle’ would be coming to visit her and that she would have to have sex with him in order to get her ‘experienced’. Police say that he raped the girl in a Nebraska hotel room and gave her morning after pills. Kemp was originally charged with $1 million bail in Nebraska, but it was lowered and he was then able to post bail.

In the North Carolina case, Kemp was allegedly exchanging explicit pictures with a 12-year-old girl on Kik. So far no charges have been filed in North Carolina.

Kemp was said to have been very particular with his electronics when it came to other members of his family…

“In an interview with Kemp’s wife, she said she suspected that something was going on with Kemp, as far back as several years. She said Kemp disappears frequently to the bathroom while at home for long periods of time, and he takes his phone with him,” the charges state. “Kemp’s wife said that Kemp is very private with his cellphone and that no one is allowed to look at it and no one other than Kemp knows the pass code.”

This reminds me of a time where a former co-worker came to me and asked me advice about their friend’s peculiar behavior about their computer. This was in a day before smart phones were the norm. She said that her friend would never let his wife or kids use the computer, and it was always password protected. I said he’s either having an affair or he’s into child porn. Sadly, it was the latter, and the guy ended up going away for a long time leaving his wife and kids to fend for themselves.

As you should know by now, Kik is teeming with sex offenders and pedophiles, and as shown here they will go to preposterous extremes in order to violate your children. They will traverse great distances, spend extravagant amounts of money, and make up the most cockamamie stories just to get what they want from children. If you’re not watching your kids’ online habits, they are.

UPDATE 2/9/2017: Thanks to reader Kate who was able to find a mughost of Kemp.

Blaine A. Mallon

Police in Austin, Texas, have arrested 27-year-old Blaine A. Mallon for allegedly trying to find an accomplice in order to rape a female relative of his. Mallon is said to have gone on random webcam chat site Omegle in order to find someone to help him rape a woman that he knew by asking “looking for someone to help me rape a girl I know. Interested?” The conversation then allegedly moved to Kik where Mallon is said to have given the person he was talking to all the information about his intended victim including…

…photos of the victim; victim’s home address; description of the victim’s car; the victim’s work hours; information about when the victim’s boyfriend is leaving town; and a statement that said, “She lives alone. Great Body. Very much a good girl mentality. Should be a lot of fun.”

Thankfully, the second person went to authorities with the information that he had and police were able to determine that the man requesting the rape was Mallon. The victim told police that Mallon was related to her and was around him on a regular basis. No word on if that relation was through marriage or blood.

When Mallon was confronted with what information police had he reportedly said that the whole plot was just a fantasy.

Mallon allegedly told police that he wouldn’t hurt the victim. He further stated that he would have stopped the rape from happening by telling the other person the victim’s address was fake, according to APD.

Oh, is that the case? Then we’re sorry to have taken up your time sir, you’re free to go, which is what Mallon probably imagined what police were going to say after telling them that reason they they’ve never heard before.

Guys like Mallon make up way too many users in places like Kik and Omegle. If you don’t want your kids conversing with would-be rapists, you may want to keep an eye on their app and internet use.

Texas Teacher blackmailed by student she was having sex with

Sandy Doan

27-year-old Sandy Doan of Dallas, Texas, has allegedly fallen into the same pitfalls of too many teachers these days. She started communicating with one of her middle school students over Instagram and Kik (no Snapchat?) before starting a sexual relationship with the student. Normally I would be throwing sarcastic quotes around about ‘having sex’ and ‘relationship’, but it’s hard to call the kid a victim in this instance.

Instead of just the usual bragging to his friends, this kid had the criminal wherewithal to allegedly blackmail Doan into giving him thousands of dollars for his silence.

“Anit [expletive] watch ima start getting the pics and everything ready … to show the cops right I anit playing,” the messages read, according to police.

Doan, also known as Thao Doan, wasn’t arrested until the kid’s mother found out that her son was receiving large amounts of money from Doan. The kid’s mother also said that he has a lengthy juvenile criminal record. However, police sources say that the then 14-year-old blackmailer will probably not face any charges. Why in the blue hell not?

While Sandy Doan is allegedly ultimately responsible for landing herself in the situation in the first place, the extortion of $28,000 is not something that should just be chalked up to boys being boys. To not charge him shows other kids in his community that crime does pay.

Garden State RSO indicted for being a Kik kreeper

Bryan Sanderson

24-year-old Bryan Sanderson of Middletown, New Jersey, was convicted in 2013 of endangering the welfare of a child. This resulted in Sanderson being placed on the sex offender registry for life. Apparently, being on the registry did not discourage Sanderson from engaging in illicit behavior as he has been given a 24 count indictment for allegedly sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl he met through Kik.

Police say that during their investigation that they not only found Sanderson to be in possession of child porn but that he was trying to solicit sex from 12 and 13-year-olds as well. The investigation started when Sanderson was pulled over while having a 14-year-old girl in his car. Investigators believe that there may be more victims.

Anyone with information is asked to contact prosecutor’s Detective Michael Acquaviva at 732-431-7160, ext. 2233.

Anyone who wants to make an anonymous report can call the Monmouth County Crime Stoppers confidential tip-line at 1-800-671-4400. Tipsters can also text “MONMOUTH” and their tip to 274637 or they can email a tip via the website at www.monmouthcountycrimestoppers.com.

Not only does this show that Kik is still rampant with sex offenders and pedophiles, but sex offender registries don’t do much to keep predators from re-offending. Instead they should be kept in jail longer rather than be given probation.

Bryan Asrary (not Justin Bieber)

24-year-old Bryan Asrary of Revere, Massachusetts, is accused of posing as Justin Bieber in order to extort explicit pictures from a 9-year-old girl for two years. The victim, from Los Angeles County in California, followed Bieber on Instagram and was messaged by Asrary claiming to know Bieber and promised a meeting with the alleged singer. The victim was then instructed to open a Kik account where Asrary is said to have posed as Bieber himself. That’s when Asrary is said to have threatened the victim into sending him explicit photos of herself. Two years later in 2016, the suspect is said to have tried to extort more pictures out of the victim by threatening to publish the original pictures. The victim then went to her mother who went to police.

In what should really come as no surprise, this is not the first suspect to try to pose as the Canadian pop star, or the second. In the annals of this website there have been two others who have tried to use the Bieber bluff. Their stories can be seen here and here.

While I can understand why a parent may allow their child to follow Justin Bieber on Instagram, it should still be done under strict supervision, not to mention that no 9-year-old should ever be allowed to have unfettered access to social media no matter how innocent their intentions may be. Any platform, regardless of how kid friendly it may be, can be abused by miscreants like this in order to corrupt your children.

Kik kreeper caught with missing Missouri girl

Kik kreeper caught with missing Missouri girl

25-year-old Dominic Pearson was charged in federal court with attempting to entice a minor for sex, but the charges hardly explain what it is alleged to have happened. Pearson is accused of allegedly grooming a 13-year-old girl over mobile messaging app Kik before arranging to have the Missouri girl run away.

After picking up the girl with another man named ‘John’, the victim claims that Pearson allegedly raped her after they left the Springfield area. The victim also claims that Pearson was well aware of her age.

What makes matters worse is that the girl was using her father’s cell phone to use Kik. At any time this man could have checked the app to see that this was going on…

“I am on the way to you, we are going to meet up with our ride,” said one message from “black heart.”

Other messages were more graphic. One said “I can’t wait to be with u and marry u.” Another indicated “black heart” might be coming to get the girl from the “east side of Nebraska, I am working my way there.”

Again, you may trust your kids completely, but do you trust everyone that they’re talking to online? You shouldn’t, especially on Kik considering it is rife with sex offenders and pedophiles.

Robert Dion Ables

39-year-old Robert Dion Ables of Hutchins, Texas, is accused of allegedly extorting a 14-year-old Canadian girl for explicit images of herself. Ables is believed to have used the mobile messaging app Kik in order to attempt to blackmail his victim.

kiklogo

Investigators say that Ables posed as a 14-year-old girl when asking the girl for explicit photos. When he received them, he is said to have sent similar pictures of a different girl to the victim. He then threatened the victim that he would post her pictures on Facebook if she did not continue to send him pictures.

Ables allegedly admitted to the crime and said that he had been involved in online extortion since 2014 which he says has made him $50,000 in two years.

Ables said he obtained sexually explicit photographs of minors by contacting girls on KIK Messenger.

Another good warning for your kids is that if a stranger online claims to be or around their age, they still could be a predator. Posing as a child is just one of many ways that online predators use to gain your child’s trust. This is not a rare occurrence on Kik either. As I have mentioned many times in the past, Kik is inundated with sex offenders and pedophiles.
