Teenagers as young as 14 have been duped into filming highly explicit videos of themselves.

.. for one of the largest online child abuse video networks ever uncovered.

Last week, U-S authorities announced they'd discovered an online network with more than 27 thousand members... sharing thousands of videos of victims who were mostly young boys.

The Australian Federal Police has revealed that at least seven of those victims were Australian teens.

Five Australians have been charged... so far... in connection with the network.
