Groups to help you protect your social media accounts if you are in the industry already.
Model Mom Strong is a account run by concerned mums on Facebook. Be aware that there are a lot of pedophiles and clients who don't want to buy images or pay royalties that are very good at obtaining photographs under various guises..and groups such as Model Mom Strong have a running page where members alert other members as to new people who are spotted on Facebook and Instagram.
If your child is approached, report the page and block and if possible let any mutual friends or others know. Do not interact with the character, however disgusted or angry you may be.
Another You Tuber called Coby Persin also has videos which I have posted below that I think get the message across very well for kids to understand the dangers of predators and fake accounts. PLeASE do take a moment to watch and share. What should I do if someone is threatening on Facebook to share something my child wants to keep private (ex: messages, photos, videos)?shareShare Article
If someone is threatening to share personal information about your child (asking for photos, money or anything else), you have options. Here's what you can do:
- Report this to local law enforcement.
- Report this person to us. Sharing or threatening to share intimate images goes against our Community Standards.
- Ask your child to block this person. Depending on your privacy settings, people on Facebook can see a list of your Facebook friends. Once you block someone, they no longer have access to your friend list and won't be able to start conversations with you or see things you post on your profile.

Operation SAFE CHILD
In addition to being able to quickly provide important details
to police agencies investigating child disappearances, the SAFE CHILD
card serves as an important tool when used in conjunction with the AMBER Alert and DCJS Missing Child/College Student Alert programs.
The cards and database allow essential missing child information to be
electronically disseminated, statewide if necessary, within minutes and
dramatically increases the possibility of bringing a missing child home
