Beware of Naked Photo Scam

Maybe don’t send that picture of your junk to a stranger?

According to the Swellesley Report via Universal Hub – a gentleman reached out to Wellesley Police to report the following:

On July 19, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. Officer DeBernardi spoke with a male reporting party who stated he was a victim of an internet scam where he was chatting with an unknown female party on Instagram and SnapChat.  He stated they agreed to exchange naked photos to each other and when he sent photos to her she demanded money and threatened to send the photos to his friends and family.  He sent a small amount of money initially and refused to send more money.  The unknown female party sent the photos to some of his contacts when he didn’t pay additional money.  The Wellesley Police Department is investigating similar incidents that have occurred recently.

Moral of the story? Keep it in your pants.
