Alberta RCMP say they have received a number of reports throughout central and southern Alberta where social media platforms were used in an effort to extort money from individuals.

In a number of cases, Mounties say the victims received friend requests from what has been typically a female, or other messages on Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram and/or on a dating application, that subsequently moved to direct messaging on various platforms.

Police say the victims involved have sent a nude image(s) and the suspect(s) subsequently made demands that the victim send them money or their image(s) will be sent out to all of their contacts, friends and/or family.

RCMP say it is common for offenders to follow a victim’s friends and family on social media platforms as a way to demonstrate they can follow through on threats to share the image(s) if the victim does not comply.
