Terre des Hommes Netherlands has now handed over to police the identities of over 1,000 adults who were willing to pay children in developing countries for online sex, it said.
"They were ready to pay Sweetie for sexual acts in front of her webcam," the rights group's head Albert Jaap van Santbrink told journalists in The Hague.
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.
Within a 10-week period, over 20,000 predators approached Sweetie, asking for webcam sex performances.
While they were chatting with the "girl", researchers gathered information about her customers through social media.
Using this information, researchers identified the abusers and passed the information on to police.
