Enticed by a child porn website

James Charles Cafferty

One day, Mr. Cafferty saw this in his email:
"Welcome to the hidden side of yur soul, where you view the yung and innocent. We have been around since 2002, offering the best of private and series Child Pornography (CP), (hardcore/soft core) all for FREE! All you have to do, enter in the password, and you'll be viewing free CP for days. We move around when we have to... congratulations for finding us. Yur old password won't work, so get the new one and you are IN!!!"
He was interested and he entered the site, because he did have a hidden side to his soul.

What he didn't realize is that the site was run by the FBI's Innocent Images Task Force, and the email was sent to Mr. Cafferty because he'd been identified as a possible suspect.

The email description is explicitly about child porn for a reason - it can't be confused by those looking for legal porn who might say they accidentally clicked on a link.

If someone takes the bait and enters the website and clicks on a supposed child porn video, the video acts as if it's downloading, but it fails. That's because there's no actual porn on the site. But whoever logs in is obviously interested in child porn, and the FBI is definitely interested in them.

And that's exactly what happened to Mr. Cafferty.
