Teen receives naked photos of adult stranger on Snapchat

 A teenager says someone is sending her nude pictures through one of the hottest apps in social media: Snapchat. What's worse? She says everyone who uses the social media network at her school is receiving them, too.

Responding could allow spammers to steal your personal information, your money or identity. It is one more reason parents need to be vigilant about what kids are doing online.
