How to prevent cyberbullying: A look at tips and strategies
A cyberbullied teen is fighting back against online threats in the hopes of keeping his family safe.
Peter Strzok is a former FBI agent who was fired in May 2017 for leaking information to the media about the Trump campaign.
The investigation led to the resignation of former FBI Director James Comey and led to charges against former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
In March 2018, Strzkies family was targeted by a malicious cyber attack.
His wife and two young children were among the victims of an online assault that left their home and the family’s vehicles damaged.
His ex-wife, a nurse, was also one of the victims.
The attack left Strzoks home and vehicles damaged and he and his family were forced to flee the city of Richmond, Virginia.
His family is now living in a temporary home in the US, and he is now working as a journalist.CBC News spoke to Peter Strzokey about his experience.
Strzok says he is fighting a war against cyberbullies who are targeting his family, and his son has suffered permanent brain damage from the attacks.
Peter says his son was diagnosed with autism and autism spectrum disorder.
Peter said he learned the hard way in 2017, when his son suffered a concussion.
Peter says the cyberattack affected his entire life.
Peter’s son was an active participant in a group called ‘Cyber-Solutions’ that helped others with autism.
Peter tells CBC News that he was not surprised when he received the anonymous emails in February 2018.
“I was actually pretty surprised because I knew that it was coming from people who I trusted,” he said.
“That’s how bad it is.”
Peter says he contacted his son after receiving another email that claimed the family would not be able to afford a trip to the doctor’s office for the child.
Peter said he told his son he was worried about his safety and called the number listed on the email.
The phone number was disconnected and the caller claimed to be a lawyer representing the family, Peter said.
Peter contacted his wife, who is also a nurse.
Peter told her the cyber attack was affecting their children’s lives.
Peter told CBC News he didn’t think the family was safe, and that the cyberbullish messages had been coming from the same person.
“They were saying, ‘We’re going to make sure that you’re not going to be able or that you won’t be able,'” Peter said about the emails.
“And it was a horrible way to handle it.”
Peter Strzycki is one of a number of individuals who say they have been victims of cyberbulls threats in recent years.
Peter has also filed a federal civil rights complaint against the people responsible for the attack.
In the complaint, Peter Strzyciks family was asked to pay a $1,500 filing fee to have the cyber attacks reported to federal authorities.
Peter believes that’s an unfair and unconstitutional attempt to force him and his other family members to pay the filing fee.
Peter is now seeking legal redress, and says he’s not afraid of cyber attacks anymore.
“We’ve just been fighting them and we’re not afraid anymore,” he told CBC.
Peter thinks that cyberbulling is on the rise, and has no regrets about the way he was treated in 2017.
Peter and his wife are hoping to get a court order to prevent their family from being targeted.
