Sextortionist government worker gets nearly 5 years in the slammer – Naked Security

He ran his predatory scams from his official, government-issued computer for more than two years, posing as a member of the fictional Google “Account Deletion Team.”

He used aliases including “David Anderson” and “John Parsons”, telling victims that their email accounts would be deleted if they didn’t respond.

Once he’d gained access to their Gmail accounts, he used the details to hijack at least 450 Google, Facebook, Twitter and iCloud profiles belonging to 200 individuals. He ransacked their personal information and photos, then he’d start extorting them.

His preferred prey was young females, some of whom were students at US colleges and universities, with a particular focus on members of sororities and aspiring models.
