Laura sat at her laptop still steaming mad from the incident that had happened earlier with Michelle. "I'll show her!" she thought. Just then, Laura had an idea... "I can set up a bogus email account and create a fake Facebook page. I'll put Michelle in her place without her even knowing who did it." After a setting up her new identity, Laura became "Julie". Pleased with herself Julie launched a full blown cyber attack on her once friend Michelle. "See if she ever messes with me again", Julie laughed. On the other end of the computer, Michelle sat with her mouth gaping open. She couldn't believe what she was reading. "Who's Julie?" she thought. "What did I do to her?" Michelle's heart was beating fast and tears began to stream down her face.
