Lonely man falls into nude chat trap, loses HK$5,000 in extortion scheme


7th December 2023 – (Hong Kong) In another case of online deception, a 22-year-old man on Man Tai Street, Hung Hom, reported an incident at around 2am today (7th). He claimed that explicit photos of him were taken on a social media application, and subsequently, he was extorted by a woman for HK$5,000. Fearing the exposure of compromising photos, the victim reluctantly handed over the “ransom.” After conducting a preliminary investigation, authorities have classified the case as “extortion,” but no arrests have been made thus far.
