Slow clap for Toronto dad Cliff Ford.
In January 2014, Ford’s 12-year-old daughter received an email with the subject line, “Hey sexy.”
Ford’s spidey sense kicked in; he decided to pose as his daughter and chat with the stranger.
Over the course of three days, Ford unearthed enough information about the predator to bring the info to police.
According to CBC.ca: “The FBI arrested Bowers on Jan. 14, finding USB keys, computers and CDs that contained child pornography. The investigation soon revealed that Bowers was a primary player in a local child pornography ring that traded pictures and videos of minors online.”
Ford was surprised. “I was just trying to protect my daughter,” he said. “I had no idea there would be other victims.”
The predator was sentenced to 20 years in prison.
