Perverted Justice Foundation, Inc. Their website serves as an archive of collected data on these investigations, which they make available in order to assist law enforcement and the public in understanding the behavior and child grooming techniques of online hebephiles. The activity of the Perverted-Justice organization has included online volunteers carrying out sting operations by posing as children or teenagers the age range portrayed by the decoys is usually 10—15 on chat sites and waiting for adults to approach them.
After obtaining the identifying information of the adults who are seeking sexual contact with minors the adult seeking the minor may offer their telephone or other details so that a meeting can be arrangedthe organization would then pass the information on to law enforcement. Perverted-Justice also operates a site that targets groups and individuals it identifies as being involved in the pedophile activism community,  a site that provides information to abuse victims on their legal recourse,  a site that gives advice to children and teenagers on dealing with grooming on the internet,  and a site that targets organizations that Perverted-Justice believes allow pedophile activists to use their services.
In late Perverted Justice announced that, as of the beginning ofthey would be formally ending decoy operations. They also announced perverted chats they would perverted chats converting the official website to an archive of past operations and collected data, and removing other site features such as the forums.
The data they propose to compile and make accessible on the website, including thousands of formerly-unseen chat logs, will be available for research purposes in order to assist anti-pedophile groups and law enforcement with regard to understanding the behavior and techniques of online pedophiles. The site originally started with the posting of chat logs to shame people who engaged in sexual chats with purported children. Some members of the site allegedly went further by harassing the targets of their chats in real life, as well as their friends, neighbors, employers, and family. Von Erck said he got the idea for the website while watching people attempt to groom young girls in chat rooms in Oregon.
He says Perverted-Justice is a computer watchdog agency that works closely with law enforcement agencies. We cultivate cooperation with police and work within the law to get justice, not outside of the law. Perverted-Justice functions by supporting volunteers who act as informants in chat rooms where children and minors can typically be found. The volunteers' public profiles have youthful-sounding usernames, young ages, and pictures of children.
The administrators of the site say they do not initiate online contact with the users,  perverted chats refuse to act on tips from the public as a result. In the past, around this point the chatlog and details would be published on the site. Volunteers on the site's forums would then engage in "follow-up", attempting to identify and notify family members, perverted chats, and neighbors. However, in Decemberthe organization set up its "Information First" program, in which interested police departments could contact Perverted-Justice, and any "busts" made within that department's jurisdiction would be sent straight to them without being posted to perverted chats website.
Since July when they facilitated their first conviction, the site's operators switched to a policy of cold calling local police with the information they obtained. Before Perverted-Justice's "Information First" program and cold-calling policy became standard, logs that received no interest from law enforcement agencies were posted directly to the website.
In Novemberafter the site's th conviction, Perverted-Justice announced that chat logs would no longer be posted unless law enforcement was involved first, as "Information First" agreements were sufficient to cover most U. The complete unedited chat logs, which usually contain sexually explicit content and obscenities and sometimes are annotated with comments from the Perverted-Justice volunteer are now posted to the website only after the person's legal case has been resolved. The current follow-up process consists of notifying a community of the offender's status once a person has been arrested and convicted.
To begin the follow-up process, the site's volunteers do a reverse-directory lookup to obtain their target's name, as well as checking on the Web for any other information they can find about them. They then post the target's name, address, and photograph if available, on the website, as well as the chat log: a record of the conversation they had with the volunteer. In a process called "Follow-up," additional volunteers on the site's forums, operating under rules and restrictions set up by Perverted-Justice administrators, will contact the target's family, friends, neighbors, and employer to alert them to the website posting.
All telephone s are perverted chats from the site's main s after two months though still available on the site's forumsto avoid another case like that of the Milwaukee bank teller, who received a threatening phone call from a man who had obtained her from the website. The woman had never been online or even owned a computer, and was forced to change herwhich had ly been registered to the subject of a Perverted-Justice sting.
Volunteers also take part in what the site's operators call "group media busts," where people are invited to a house by a self-proclaimed minor, who is actually a Perverted-Justice volunteer. When they arrive, they are greeted by a television news reporter. The first of these events were conducted in latein co-operation with investigative reporter John Mercure at Milwaukee's WTMJ-TVwhom the site credits with initially conceiving the concept.
Similar events with other local news organizations took place in the following months. Dateline rented a house and wired it with hidden cameraswhile volunteers posed as minors in chat rooms, telling users who talked to them that they were home alone. In two-and-a-half days, 18 men showed up at the house after making a date with a Perverted-Justice volunteer.
After the third installment of To Catch a PredatorPerverted-Justice hired an agent and put the group's services out for bid to several television networks.
NBC came out ahead and continued the highly rated perverted chats. Perverted-Justice's website documents convictions that include disorderly conductindecently solicitingattempting to entice a juvenile to travel with intent to engage in sexual act, transporting child pornographyand possession and dissemination of child pornography. According to the official website, Perverted Justice contributed to at least convictions while stating that the actual is likely closer to Perverted Justice formerly ran a website targeting individuals and groups involved in the online pedophile activist community.
The site's stated objective was to "house our voluminous research regarding the identities and pursuits of those in the pedophile activist community". It listed a of arrests of pedophile activists that it stated were based on its profiles.
Perverted-Justice volunteers also worked to match up MySpace profiles with convicted sex offenders from state registries and alert MySpace officials to their presence. They say they have identified almost three thousand such profiles, most of which have been deleted. Perverted-Justice, as well as its volunteers, have been commended over the years by a of individuals and organizations, including many active-duty law enforcement officials and child-safety advocates.
Active-duty law enforcement who have worked with the website on perverted chats have also gone on record speaking about the organization. Perverted-Justice and its volunteers have been criticized over the years by several individuals and organizations. Individuals opposing Perverted Justice see it as an organization that encourages extrajudicial violence and harassment against individuals who have not yet been convicted of any crime in the perverted chats system. Also Stone Phillips from a Perverted Justice related event concedes that " According to Von Erck, Bruce Raisley, a private pilot and software developer made graphic violent threats against Perverted-Justice contributors and volunteers, and threatened to expose the online identities they used when posing as children.
Raisley stated that he was a former Perverted-Justice member who left the group after he discovered that Perverted-Justice used a photograph of his son in a Perverted-Justice decoy profile, and failed to get a swift response from law enforcement. Allegations were made that Von Erck had "set out to destroy [Raisley] by posing as a woman, seducing him online with graphic sex chats, posting the transcripts on the web, and threatening to release a purported video of the individual masturbating.
The photos were later posted online along with a warning against further threats and attacks. In latethe official site announced that they would end active decoy operations at the start of In addition to formally ending the chat room decoy operations that they were well known for, Perverted Justice founder Xavier Von Erck announced that the organization will be suspending all active operations with the conclusion of the Stephen Deck case. In mid December Deck was convicted again after having a conviction overturned in appellate court, thus marking the conclusion of the final case-related activity for Perverted Justice.
InPerverted Justice ended all active operations and announced that their official website will be effectively transitioned from active status to a summary based format of past operations and history as of April or May During the final few years, Perverted Justice had dozens of researchers from colleges and projects across the western world asking for permission to use data from the website, and maintains that they have always given permission to use chat logs on the website for research related activities.
The organization has several thousand chat conversations archived that never saw the light of day because the targets never rose to a level of prosecution. Perverted Justices last stated goal is to compile these chat logs, as well as extensive information compiled over the years of operation in a dataset that will be available for research purposes.
Perverted Justice stated that changing internet platforms, specifically Twitter and social networking in general, contributed to the organization's decision to cease operations - citing that internet predators are no longer confined to mostly a few deep wells as they were when the organization started up.
The organization pointed to the fact that internet access for younger generations is ubiquitous, connecting online victims at an earlier age each year with technology that far exceeds the power of personal computers perverted chats when starting the website long ago. Because of the changing social media landscape, their once effective methods of patrolling perverted chats rooms had been rendered non-effective. The site points to the fact that law enforcement officials are far more open to talking to citizens with information than they were back when the organization started.
Perverted Justice stated that it will be up to future generations to figure out the best way to efficiently get internet predators arrested, and to figure out the best way to use newer technologies to fake being underage convincingly.
