Children's coalition to warn credit card users against porn

Credit card statements from this summer will include a letter from a coalition of children's charities warning of the legal repercussions of using cards to buy child pornography on the internet.

The initiative is part of a new partnership between the Children's Charities' Coalition for Internet Safety, the Internet Watch Foundation and the Association of Payment Clearing Services.

"If we all speak with one voice about this issue then more people will listen," said John Carr, internet adviser to NCH.

The letter will carry logos of all charities in the coalition including NCH, Barnardo's and the NSPCC.

A press and marketing campaign, which encourages the public to be vigilant and to report any illegal pornography sites to the Internet Watch Foundation, will support the partnership.
