How to make a report

You can report any of the things we have discussed today to the Cybertipline or 1-800-THE-LOST. You can report anonymously, which means you don’t have to tell them who you are. You can cut and paste cyber-bullying threats on a word document and then send it to the tipline. Make a copy of the email or text, etc. and paste it in your message to the tipline. Just make sure you send as much information as you can, and let them know if you are a minor and someone is sending inappropriate pictures to you or trying to get you to meet them online, etc.
