WASHINGTON – The University of Maryland Police Department is investigating an extortion case that involves nude photos of a college student.
The student, from the College Park campus, told police that during an online video chat with someone on Saturday, the other person started removing her clothing. So he did the same.
Later that evening, he received a demand for money. The extortionist threatened that they would post nude images of him from the chat on Facebook if he didn’t pay up.
Police said the victim sent the scammer an undisclosed amount of money before reporting the incident to police on Sunday.
