Summary:  The FBI is posting fake links to kiddie porn on various chan sites and other forums.  Click on one of the fake links and you get a visit from the Party Van.  But they aren't recording the referrer, so they have no idea if the victim was genuinely trying to download kiddie porn or if someone had been tricked into accessing the files via a META refresh, Iframes, URL spoofing or TinyURL, or if they'd used a browser with a pre-fetch function (like Firefox) which downloads links automatically.
