Women working as virtual prostitutes though have a different and invisible enemy to fight: the economic crises in Italy.Desperate Italian women, faced with unemployment and rising costs of living, on the backs of government austerity measures, are now turning to ‘virtual sex’ work to fight the Italian credit crunch."The child predators doing this now feel that the law doesn't apply to them. According to the UN and the FBI, there are over 750,000 child predators online at any given moment, Terre des Hommes said, also announcing an online petition to pressure governments to adopt proactive investigation policies.Yet only 6 people have been convicted of engaging in webcam child sex tourism in the world, the rights group said."The biggest problem is that the police don't take action until child victims file reports, but children almost never report these crimes," said head of campaigns Hans Guyt.
