Sue Scheff

Just a quick thank you to all the people that emailed me with their stories and support. I am simply amazed at the number of people that are being abused on the Internet with slanderous statements and photo's.

Personally, I will always have critics, like others who step up to the plate and want to make a difference in the world. Being in the public eye can bring all sorts of interesting, disturbing, and strange things to light. I am stunned at the amount of time and energy that is being spent to harm others on the Internet.

I am grateful I have contributed so much positive to the story and helped others to step up and speak out. It has been extremely difficult at many times, however knowing I am making a difference in so many lives helps to me to continue my mission to help parents and be a voice for victims of Internet Abuse.

Thanks again to the crew at 20/20 ABC - the fantastic producer and a special thanks to Michael Fertik and his team at Reputation Defender.

Martin Bashir sits down with Sue Scheff

On Tuesday, August 14th - I was on the new 20/20 i-Caught series.

Although I was very hesitant to go on, the producers and Martin Bashir made me feel at ease.

I was not hesitant on my story; the fact I have become a voice for so many people that have been defamed, destroyed, harassed and more on the Internet - I felt I had to share my story.

The response has been overwhelming and I am simply amazed at the number of emails I received of people going through the horrors of the Internet.

Reputation Defender CEO, Michael Fertik, is extremely professional and very caring of people that are being abused online. Although some may think that this service is to serve as a deceptive way to hide ugly truths, it couldn't be further from the truth.

As I posted in an earlier Blog, Reputation Defender does their due diligent prior taking on a new client, like myself. They will not take on clients that are not reputable.

Sure, I still have a small number of people that are out there campaigning to destroy me on the Internet, but I always know I won 2 jury trials - I fought back - I won - and the truth in both my cases prevailed.

Thanks to 20/20 ABC News for sharing my story, it has helped so many already.
