Coby Persin created a fake Facebook profile posing as a 15-year-old boy and sends friend requests to three girls, ages 12 to 15, with their parents' permission. Coby then convinces the girls to meet with him. The teenagers' parents along with Coby surprised the girls at the meeting spot, telling them the person they thought was a 15-year-old boy on Facebook could have been a pedophile or some other crazy people who could have kidnapped them.
