University of Pittsburgh police are advising students to be extra cautious when interacting with strangers online after several local university students were targeted in an extortion plot, reports WPXI.
According to police, male students are being messaged on Facebook or Twitter from a random person. The men are then asked to switch over to Skype and perform various sex acts on camera.
Later, the anonymous person demands payment. They tell the men the videos will be leaked to their loved ones if they don’t pay up.
