Elderly Couple Victims Of Sextortion: Durban – KZN
A 64 year old couple residing on the North Coast have become victims of sextortion after they shared nude pictures via watsapp with a man that replied to their online advert.
The elderly man approached Reaction Unit South Africa after he paid a total of R7000 into a bank account belong to the suspect. The victim informed Reaction Officers that a few weeks ago his wife agreed to place an advert online looking for a male to join them in a threesome. One of the replies suited the couples requirements & they exchanged contact numbers. They then chatted to the white male who sent nude pictures and requested the same. The husband then sent several nude pictures of his wife & the recipient then threatened to post the pictures on facebook unless he received cash. The couple who have grandchildren were embarrassed & paid an amount into the account provided to avoid being exposed. The suspect contacted them telephonically a few days later & they then realized that he was an indian male & that his online profile was fake.
The couple made several payments & eventually contacted RUSA after the suspect continued to extort money from them. They are also fearing for their safety.
The victims have declined to open a criminal case.
