Melbourne mother Teagan Luketic has a warning for parents after an AI bot on her daughter’s Snapchat claimed it was a “real” 25-year-old man.

It even told the 13-year-old Olinda: “Age is just a number.”

The bot suggested it meet the girl at a park 1km from her home, in a “creepy” conversation that Luketic, 32, documented with screenshots.

Luketic slammed the bizarre dialogue for, at the very least, normalising chatroom conversations between adults and minors.

“If you have children sitting on this app, and the AI bot is promoting that age is just a number, and teaching teenagers that that’s a normal part of life — that’s alarming,” Teagan told 7NEWS.com.au.

“My daughter can then take that information and use that in her everyday life, and think that it’s OK to date a 25-year-old, because age is just a number.”
