Woman nabbed for P2M Internet threat
A woman in Cebu City was arrested for allegedly demanding P2 million from her American ex-boyfriend so she won’t upload their intimate photos and videos on the Internet.
Ancy Dieto and a female companion were arrested by agents of the National Bureau of Investigation in Central Visayas (NBI-7) at the lobby of the Marriott Hotel at 3:30 p.m.
The two women, both residents of barangay Inayawan, Cebu City, will be charged with robbery extortion before the Cebu City Prosecutors’ Office today, said NBI-7 agent Rey Villordon, the team leader.
The entrapment was laid by the NBI-7 after the American sought their help. The American asked not to be named for security reasons.
