    One day, Scarlett was walking home with her best friend. Scarlett is usually supposed to come home right after school, but since her friend was so eager to tell her something, she decided to bend the rules.

    They went to the nearest park, and her friend took out a slip of paper that had a phone number on it - the phone number of a girl she did NOT like from school. Her friend suggesting texting the number. Even though Scarlett was afraid of getting in trouble, she ultimately agreed, and they texted the girl and pretend to be her crush - a boy named Jason. They pretended that "Jason" was asking her to hang out, and they even went as far as asking the girl for nudes. The girl completely believed them, and she responded back with flirty messages and inappropriate pictures. Scarlett and her friend thought it was the funniest thing in the world!

    They continued going to the park every day after school and texted the girl, still pretending to be Jason. When they went to school and watched the girl interact with the REAL Jason, they laughed so much. They thought it was a hysterical joke.

    But one day, they ran into trouble when the girl asked them to FaceTime. They didn't know what to do, so they pretended that "Jason" was sick. The girl kept calling them over and over again - it seemed like she was catching on.

    The next day at school, Scarlett and her friend watched as the girl approached the real Jason and commented that he did not look sick. Scarlett's friend couldn't control herself, and she started laughing hysterically in the background. However, because of her reaction, the girl knew it had to be Scarlett and her friend behind the text messages. They were busted, and the girl reported them to the school.

    Scarlett and her friend were terrified of getting in trouble, and they became even more fearful when they found out that the police had to get involved. They learned that what they were doing was called cyberbullying - a serious offense. Scarlett and her friend both were grounded, and they learned a very valuable lesson. They may have thought what they were doing was a harmless, funny joke, but it was really cyberbullying.

      Well, this just shows that some bullies (and cyber bullies) don’t know what they’re doing.

                        I noticed everyone in the comments want to make jokes, yeah real funny, until some one kills themselves because of cyber bullying,( of course that wasn't this case,) and others say catfishing instead, but I guess that makes it better, right, how pathetic people are.

                                                  Catfishing is a form of cyberbullying. Any action that has the intent to hurt someone's feelings is cyberbullying.

                                                          thats such a horrible thing to do. this is whats wrong, kids fear about being in trouble and what the consequences will be more than the fact it's the wrong thing to do. it's selfish. i would know since i used to be like that, and so was most people around me. its sad really.
