The scam was the woman luring him into compromising online sexual conversations, and later threatening to reveal the conversations to his wife, friends and associates if he didn't send her money. That's called blackmail, and it's a felony in all 50 U.S. states. It's also a crime in the Philippines.

 

Once she demanded money to remain silent, a crime had been committed.

So just give the blackmailers a free pass to keep ripping people off at will? I blame both, but blackmail is a felony, plain and simple. When felonious activity goes unpunished, you just get more and more of it.

This kind of crap is more common than we might think. Syndicates from China/Taiwan/Philippines have been engaged in on line extortion for a while now. From 2014:

 

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/philippines/10802940/Philippines-police-and-Interpol-smash-cyber-extortion-network.html

 

 

 

Philippine police, backed by Interpol, have arrested dozens of suspected members of an online extortion syndicate who duped hundreds of victims worldwide into exposing themselves in front of webcams, including a Scottish teenager who committed suicide after being blackmailed, officials said on Friday.

 

At least 58 Filipino suspects in the capital, Manila, and other cities were arrested recently after investigators from Interpol, the US Homeland Security Department and other police agencies traced online chats from some of the victims’ computers, said Philippine National Police Chief Allan Purisima.

 

Mr Purisima said the syndicate would secretly record the victims after tricking them into exposing their bodies or having cybersex, and later threaten to send the video to their relatives and friends unless they paid, usually from $500 to $2,000 (£300 to £1,200).

He said members of the “sextortion” group would create fake Facebook accounts of fictitious young and attractive women and entice and lure victims with p*ornographic material after striking up online chats with them.

 

Hong Kong police Inspector Louis Kwan Chung-yin said more than 470 people from Hong Kong were victimised last year and about 160 so far this year.

 

In one case, a victim paid the equivalent of $15,000 (£9,000). The victims were of various ages.

 

Sanjay Virmani, director the Interpol Digital Crime Center based in Singapore, said the victims were from Asia, Europe and the United States. He said that the extortionist had been tracked down using evidence from computers and intelligence information from police.

Warning those still engaged in cyber extortion in the Philippines and elsewhere in the world, Mr Virmani said: “You better be prepared for the consequences of your actions because as you can see we have made a commitment to work together. You will be caught and you will be held accountable for your actions.”

 

Scottish police officer Gary Cunningham said he was representing the 17-year-old boy’s family in tracking down those responsible for his death last year. He said the family was “extremely supportive ... in bringing to justice to individuals out there who have fallen victims to these crimes.”

 

Senior Superintendent Gilbert Sosa, chief of the Philippine National Police Anti-Cybercrime Group, said he could not specify the amounts extorted from the victims but said they ran into millions of pesos, or tens of thousands of pounds.

 

“This is not an issue directly involving the Philippines exclusively,” British Ambassador to Manila Asif Ahmad said. “Cybercrime is international, and is an international problem, it respects no nationality or borders. We are all potential victims of cybercrime, none of us are immune.”

i read recently that you should always block the lens on your laptop or computer when you are not using it. They can be operated remotely and you can be then open to blackmail.

I will never touch myself in a bad place again, if I think a camera is nearby. At least that's what I'm telling myself.

There isn't a scam per se.  There is, though, an attempt at grabbing money from an educated middle-aged guy and I say hell mend him.  Just keep your drawers on, chap.

 

Edited:  It's more serious when teens are involved as quoted above.  I say to my three "don't show your bits on cam" and, if the worst happens, they know they won't be judged (I hope).

If his wife  paid any attention to him and made herself desirable he wouldnt have to go trolling the internet looking for sexual satisfaction.
