Patna man honey-trapped on Facebook, asked to pay Rs 20,000 – Patna News

The woman, who initially supplied to set up friendship with the sufferer, turned nude throughout a video chat and recorded the dialog. Later she began blackmailing the sufferer to pay Rs 20,000, else she’s going to share the video on web.

In the criticism, the sufferer alleged that he befriended a lady on Facebook weeks in the past.

“After the friendship, the Facebook friend started chatting with me over the platform and after a few video chats, she offered to establish a strong friendship – which I accepted. Following that the girl turned nude on the screen during the chat,” the complainant stated.

“After few days, she sent the same video on my Whatsapp and demanded Rs 20,000 as the first installment of the extortion. I went into shock after I saw it. When I contacted the woman, she told me that she had used screen recording for the trap. She also threatened me to upload the video on the internet, if I would not pay the said amount online,” he stated.

“We have registered an FIR against an unknown person and investigation is currently underway. It could be handy work for a cyber gang. It is extremely difficult to trace such a gang as they are experts at changing the IP address of the computer system. They use fake digital profiles and target people through Facebook, Instagram and other digital platforms,” stated an inspector rank officer requesting anonymity.

“Awareness is the best method to avoid getting honeytrap,” he stated.
