TLC EXPLORES WEB PREDATORS AND DIGITAL CON ARTISTS IN TWO SPECIALS

'Cyber Stalkers' premieres on Wednesday, April 9 at 10/9c and 'Web of Deceit' airs Wednesday, April 16 at 10/9c

New York, NY - More than 110 million Americans use social media today and nearly one million relationships this year will begin online, but internet predators and false online identities are also at an all-time high. TLC explores the dark side of this phenomenon in two specials - CYBER STALKERS and WEB OF DECEIT, both premiering in April.

CYBER STALKERS, premiering Wednesday, April 9 at 10/9c, is a one-hour dramatic reenactment based on true stories of online connections gone wrong. After moving back to her hometown to focus on the next steps to getting her daughter back, Jeanette turned to social media for support and helpful connections, but she quickly learned that every favor comes with a price. The second storyline follows Jeremy and Brittany, a couple who found love online, but things took a turn for the worse when one of them was not entirely honest about the past.

The following week on Wednesday, April 16 at 10/9c, WEB OF DECEIT follows Sandy's digital saga gone terribly awry. Her romantic relationship with Keith began online, but after several setbacks and unsettling conversations, she hired renowned private investigators, Dawn Ricci and Tony DeLorenzo, to look into her story and set the record straight.

Online at TLC.com, get preview clips from each special and advice from the experts on how to avoid online scammers. Follow the Twitter conversations using #WebOfDeceit and #CyberStalkers.

CYBER STALKERS is produced by Megalomedia Inc. for TLC

WEB OF DECEIT is produced by Cineflix Productions for TLC.
