Extortion
Morocco
Officer Chris Fischer took a report from a PSU student who met a female on Facebook. The student made a Skype video of himself masturbating for the female, which the female recorded. At the end of the video the female told the student that she was actually a male and demanded $2,500, stating that the video would otherwise be released on YouTube. The person then posted the video on YouTube but removed it, proving to the student that they had the capability to post the video. Officer Fischer was able to have YouTube and Facebook remove the video, which had again been posted. The person who posted the video is apparently in Morocco.
