Man threatened to leak online date’s explicit photos on Facebook | #facebookdating | #tinder | #pof | romancescams | #scams


A man threatened to leak a woman’s naked photos over Facebook if she didn’t send him explicit pictures of herself.

Jordan Harris initially matched with the victim on dating app Bumble under a different name before the pair added each other on Snapchat.

Nottingham Magistrates’ Court heard how Harris, 22, of Glade Avenue in Nottingham, accessed intimate pictures of his female victim before trying to blackmail her into sending over further pictures of herself.

Sonjay Jerath, prosecuting, told the court that the pair had met on Bumble in February of this year.

He said the victim began talking to someone she believed was called Alex Smith and they exchanged Snapchat usernames and began messaging each other.

Mr Jerath says the victim discovered on February 9 that she had been logged out of snapchat and went on to receive a text from an unknown number.

“The text read ‘I have something of yours’”, he told the court.

“She replied ‘who is this?’, and then received a text saying ‘I have something of yours, show me more’. She didn’t know who this was from.

“She got further messages on Snapchat saying ‘Hi, send me two photographs from your personal account’.”

The victim claims Harris then lied and told her he was in fact a 14-year-old boy and that he would get her into trouble with police.

The victim then notified the police of the threats being made against her, the court was told.

Mr Jerath told the court the victim then believed he had hacked into her account and accessed the photographs.

Mr Jerath continued: “She told him to ‘leave me alone’. He then replied ‘send me more or I will post these all over Facebook’.”

Mr Jerath read to the court on behalf of the victim: “I feel frustrated. I’m doing my degree at the moment and I am trying to work hard.

“I have cried on numerous occasions over this and it is always in the back of my mind. I’m fearful of him and the threats he has made to me.”

Mitigating, Valerie Thorpe said: “Mr Harris accepts he met the complainant on Bumble, he does not accept he hacked into her account. He says she sent him some photos and gave him her password to go onto her account and view photos.

“He accepts he told her he would post messages on Facebook afterwards. He sent her an apology after this. He also does not accept that he ever told her he was a 14-year-old boy.

“He is extremely remorseful for his actions.”

A Newton Hearing will now take place to establish the truth in the discrepancies in both versions of the events, which will impact the sentence given to Harris, who pleaded guilty to a charge of harassment without violence.

A hearing date was set for December 17 of this year.
