Megan, best friends who are victimized by a criminal who
uses the Internet to lure young women with promises of
modeling contracts and online romance. Neither of the

their computers during their conversations with their
‘online boyfriends.’ Soon Sheena and Megan
begin to suspect that someone is stalking them in real
life. Players work with a detective to track the predator
and arrest him.
Wise Kids AirDogs AIRDOGS was designed to show teenagers that online
crimes have lifelong legal and social consequences for
