WINNIPEG, Manitoba -- If you come across a creep online, who wants a naked photo from you, a Canadian campaign has the perfect answer.

The effort aimed at helping teens suggests you send them something else instead: A naked mole rat.

The campaign says, "Don't get sextorted, send a naked mole rat."
