December 28, 2017

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico officials are launching a new ad campaign to warn teens and their parents about online sexual predators.

The Attorney General’s Office says the ad called “Monsters” can be viewed on Facebook .

Attorney General Hector Balderas says parents and teens must be on guard for online sexual predators who lurk behind the screens of computers, tablets and phones.

Balderas’ office says the Facebook ad was funded by a federal grant to the New Mexico Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, which Balderas’ office oversees.

A similar ad is running on screens at theaters in Albuquerque and Santa Fe this holiday season.
