A 25-year-old Australian has been charged with nudity extortion, or sextortion, of 112 girls from multiple countries, Australian authorities report. The man is said to have presented himself as a social media celebrity to get into conversation with girls. He then blackmailed the victims to perform sexual acts on camera.
An Australian police unit dedicated to combating child abuse launched an investigation into the suspect after tips from Interpol and from the United States. A 13-year-old American girl had told police that she thought the person she spoke to online was 15 years old, and that he was asking questions of a sexual nature.
The girl said he sent her screenshots of their conversation, which had been modified to make it look like she went along with his sexual fantasies. The suspect allegedly threatened to send the screenshots to her family and friends if she didn’t do what he said. Then he forced the girl to undress and engage in sexual acts while he and others watched online. Australian authorities believe the suspect used the same method to blackmail other girls from multiple countries.
Police investigations revealed that the man from Parkwood, a suburb of Perth, West Australia, is behind the perpetrator’s social media accounts. Police searched his home and seized multiple electronic devices, a telephone, hard drives and USB sticks. More than 2,000 sexually explicit images of girls were soon found.
