Child molesters would love to be able to hijack a "trusted" kid's account - at least long enough to social engineer personal information from the kid's contacts or set one or more of them up for a meeting. It takes little imagination to think of ways to use or abuse a stolen online identity, or to cause trouble for or damage the reputation of the real owner.
