End Online Child Abuse

The FBI observed nationally at least a 20% increase in reporting of financially motivated sextortion incidents involving minor victims in October 2022-March 2023, compared to the previous year.

Nationally, from October 2021-March 2023, the FBI and Homeland Security Investigations received over 13,000 reports of online financial sextortion of minors, involving at least 12,600 victims, and led to at least 20 suicides.

The National Strategy for Child Exploitation Prevention and Interdiction’s 2023 Report to Congress notes there were 2,172 victims of child sexual abuse material (CSAM)  in March 2009, increasing to 19,100 victims in April 2022.

That same report shows the number of CyberTips received in 2021 was four times higher than the number received in 2016.
