Police Naked Scammers Seduce, Blackmail Men On Web

Who would have thought that getting naked and naughty with a stranger online could have negative consequences?

Police in Singapore are reporting what appears to be a ring (or rings) of online scam artists who use attractive women to “friend” victims on social sites, seduce them into cybersex on webcams and then threaten to post images or videos of them online if they don’t pay up.
“They would commence a webcam conversation with the victims and initiate cybersex by undressing themselves first before persuading the male victims to appear nude or perform sexual acts in front of the webcams,” the Singapore Police Force wrote in a post on its website. “Unknown to the victims, the suspects had recorded the acts.”
