Extortion attempt after internet "performance"
A man who works on the West Island found out the hard way that arranging sexual encounters over the internet sometimes doesn't work out very well.
The 22-year old began chatting with a woman on a dating website. They quickly decided to "perform" for each other on their webcams. This the man did in his car parked outside his workplace.
There was a computer glitch during the "performance" and the man realized the woman was recording him. She then threatened to post the video on-line unless he coughed up an undisclosed sum of cash.
Instead, he went to police to report the attempted extortion.
