- Melbourne mum left 'disgusted' when 'perv' asks to see daughter, 4, in nappy
- Woman known as Jo says man messaged her after posting for sale advert online
- She is now cautioning parents to be 'careful', 'wary' uploading photos of children
A mother has issued a chilling warning to parents after a stranger asked for pictures of her children wearing nappies.
The woman, only known as Jo, felt 'odd and weird' when she was asked to send a photo of her four-year-old daughter wearing a spare nappy she listed for sale online.
The Melbourne mum posted the advert selling Huggies Toddler nappies to Facebook's Marketplace and was outraged by the man's 'inappropriate' request.
Screenshots of the interactions supplied to Kidspot show the 'paedophile' asking whether the items were still available before requesting to see a picture of one of the items.
The woman thought the request was 'odd and weird' but calmly responded with two pictures showing a close up of the Mini Mouse print on a nappy.
Jo told Kidspot she assumed the man was only asking due to being a father and being 'worried he might get the wrong ones'.
But the man's messages then took a sickening turn as he asked to 'see a pair of them on one of your kids please'.
She responded by stating his request was inappropriate before reporting his profile to Facebook.
'By looking at his profile, I quickly summed up that he was a perv and, most likely, a paedophile ... I felt disgusted that someone tried to violate my daughter,' Jo told Kidspot.
The mother is now calling for others to be cautious about posting pictures of their children online as 'it may be used for something unsavoury'.
'The internet is not a safe place anymore so better be always cautious than sorry,' she told Kidspot.
Jo's post on the interaction has caused a stir online, with many commenters venting their disgust and sharing how unbelievable the situation was.
One commenter called the man an 'absolute pig' while another said the interaction was 'the reason why I never post pictures of my kids online'.
