Meeting Your "Internet Friend"
NEVER DO THIS. If someone asks you to meet up, make sure who you know who your talking to. Have you seen there face? In oovoo or something. Made sure it was the real person? If someone asks you to meet up and you dont know who you're really talking to, report it. Tell a parent or an officer.
