The men involved were "fathers, musicians, an architect", Santbrink told AFP.
They "come from all over the world, from America, Europe, but also from countries like India, Japan, Korea", said Guyt.
The rights group said they used the same procedures as the police.
The identities of 1,000 of these alleged predators were submitted to Interpol.
“The internet is free, but not lawless,” says Hans Guyt, director of campaigns at Terre des Hommes Netherlands. We want governments to adopt proactive investigation policies that give law enforcement agencies the mandate to actively patrol public Internet hotspots where this child abuse is taking place every day.
The child predators doing this now feel that the law doesn’t apply to them,” he adds.
Despite the fact that webcam child sex tourism is banned by most national and international laws, only 6 perpetrators worldwide have been convicted of this crime.
Terre des Hommes Netherlands has now handed over to police the identities of those who were willing to pay children in developing countries for online sex, a growing phenomenon, it said. While they were chatting with the "girl", researchers gathered information about her customers through social media.
"They were ready to pay for sexual acts in front of her webcam," the rights group's head Albert Jaap van Santbrink told journalists in The Hague. Using this information, researchers identified the abusers and passed the information on to police.The group said it wanted to raise the alarm about a largely unknown but quickly spreading new form of child exploitation that has tens of thousands of victims in the Philippines alone, known as webcam child sex tourism. "The biggest problem is that the police don't take action until child victims file reports, but children almost never report these crimes," said head of campaigns Hans Guyt.A computer-generated 10-year-old Filipina girl has caught 1,000 pedophiles around the world who are paying for child porn.The Dutch chapter of the children’s rights group Terre des Hommes created the virtual girl called “Sweetie” as part of a sting operation to track down adults who were willing to pay children in developing countries to perform sexual act in front of the webcam.Asked why choose a Filipina girl as a model, Terre des Hommes shared with Marketing that they have identified webcam child sex tourism as an “enormous problem in the Philippines.” “In order to properly research it, we had to go underground and investigate the Filipino side of it.The research period took just over 2 months while producing and editing the film was done in a month.” Terre des Hommes researchers pretended to be the girl while working undercover in a warehouse in Amsterdam for two-and-a-half months.
