Man blackmailed after nude online chat

A 25-year-old man in Ampang was blackmailed into paying RM1,500 (S$586) after he took off his clothes while chatting with a foreign woman on the Internet, reported China Press.

During the Saturday 10.30pm chat, the woman took off her clothes before asking the man to do so.

Four hours later, after their chat ended, the woman sent the man a video link, threatening to circulate it online if he did not pay her RM1,500.

Although the man banked in the amount, the woman kept asking for more.

The man subsequently lodged a report at the Ampang police station.
