The Rise of the Cheater

.From peeking at a neighbor’s test in school to sneaking a second helping of dessert when no one’s looking, everybody seems to cheat a little every now and then. In fact, if you’re like most people, statistics show that you’ve probably already fibbed a time or two today. Lying and cheating have been an ugly little fact of life for a long time, but today’s generation of students and young professionals show a startling trend in attitudes toward cheating: The average young person doesn’t just admit to lying and cheating more often than previous generations, they also often believe that lying and cheating are a necessary fact of life. If you’re a student, chances are you’ve given someone the answers to a quiz, “borrowed” a friend’s paper, or even collaborated on a test when you shouldn’t. These are all behaviors that have been present in academics for decades, but the alarming fact about this behavior is how it sets adolescents up for their actions as an adult. Studies show that students who regularly cheat in school are far more likely to participate in dishonest conduct as adults, from swindling a customer to cheating on a spouse. If adolescents today are behaving more dishonestly than ever, what will they look like as adults tomorrow?

iPredator Inc

iPredator Inc. was founded in September 2011 to provide educational and advisory products & services to consumers and organizations on Cyber Bullying, Cyber Stalking, Child Predators, Cyber Crime, Internet Defamation, Cyber Terrorism and the new fields of ICT Forensic Psychology & ICT Psychology they are pioneering. Created by a New York State licensed psychologist and certified forensic consultant, Dr. Michael Nuccitelli, their goal is to reduce victimization, abuse, theft and disparagement from online assailants.

In addition to assisting citizens, iPredator Inc.’s mission is to initiate a nationally sustained educational & awareness campaign with the help of private, state and federal agencies. In June 2012, iPredator Inc. launched their website, www.iPredator.co along with their forensics blog, Dark Psychology and Internet safety blog, Dr. Internet Safety. At their website, they offer an enormous free resource library for site visitors covering the vast range of Cyber Predators, Internet Safety, Cyber Security, ICT Psychology, Forensic Psychology and Criminal Psychology.

As Chief Operating Officer, Dr. Nuccitelli became interested in the psychology and profiling of those who use Information and Communications Technology to abuse, steal, taunt and victimize others online in 2009. In 2012, Dr. Nuccitelli and his team of expert consultants grew even more determined to develop victimization prevention & intervention strategies for vulnerable online users utilizing education, investigation, legal, law enforcement and information technology experts.

At the center of iPredator Inc.’s products and services is Dr. Nuccitelli’s theoretical construct, iPredator. As a member and consultant to the American College of Forensic Examiners International, iPredator was the feature article in their 2011 winter issue of The Forensic Examiner published quarterly. Since 2009, Dr. Nuccitelli has dedicated himself to learning the psychological composition of those who are engaged in online malevolent activities. His definition of iPredator is as follows:

iPredator: A child, adult or group who engages in exploitation, victimization, stalking, theft or disparagement of others using information and communications technology (ICT.) iPredators are driven by deviant fantasies, desires for power and control, retribution, religious fanaticism, political reprisal, psychiatric illness, perceptual distortions, peer acceptance or personal and financial gain. iPredators can be any age, either gender and not bound by economic status, race or national heritage.

Dr. Nuccitelli and his colleagues have compiled an enormous database leading to iPredator Inc.’s resource library available at no charge to all site visitors. Having read, reviewed and compiled these links, websites and resources, he went on to develop the IPI Assessment Collection & IISC Collection designed for parents, businesses, educators, healthcare professionals, teens, adults and public figures offered at their website to take online and/or purchase. The IPI Assessment Collection & IISC Collection address cyber bullying, cybercrime, cyber stalking, cyber terrorism, digital reputation, social media, corporate disparagement and cyber predators. Interested parties can also purchase the licenses to these assessments to use for their own endeavors to educate and assess their communities, organizations and businesses in their online activities and ICT safety practices.

Concurrent with these assessments, iPredator Inc. offers a unique educational & advisory-based membership service called iPredator Protected. iPredator Protected functions to educate, advise and assist their members on the appropriate strategies for prevention, intervention, investigation and guidance if targeted by an iPredator. iPredator Inc. services include trainings, educational seminars, phone consultations and advisory, investigation, forensic and ICT Forensic Psychology services for law enforcement, attorneys and court systems. iPredator Inc. also offers trainings on ICT Psychology and Digital Reputation Management for businesses and the general public.

iPredator Inc. retains and consults with regional and national attorneys, law enforcement, ICT security experts, criminal investigators and the American College of Forensic Examiners International. Law enforcement, the legal system, community organizations and national activist organizations support iPredator Inc., their mission and the products, services and valuable information they share at their website, www.iPredator.co.
