It’s an odd case of blackmail as Toronto Police warn the public of the dangers associated with online activity. Male users on the subsites WeCHAT, Facebook, Skype and Kijiji are luring into a private chat with a seemingly interested beautiful woman.
Police believe the woman then convinces the victims to become sexual on webcam, which then she records.
The suspect uses the illicit material to black mail the victims into paying out settlements or giving gift cards.
People should be aware of the potential of internet scams, and should never disclose anything on non-secure/non-trusted sites.
