York regional police
are warning males of a new scam.
The scam begins when the victim is contacted on facebook. The guys are led to believe they are are beginning relationships with new girls (often located in the philippines).
They are encouraged to strip and perform sex acts online, which are recorded without them knowing. The guys are told that the video would be released on social media and emailed to family and friends if they do not receive between $250 to $5,000.
Police are not sure how many people might have fallen for this scam, as most people are too embarrassed to report the crimes.
