    'Sextortion' man charged over 'blackmailing women online'

    A man who is said to have blackmailed more than 350 women after convincing them to strip off in front of their webcams has been arrested in the US.

    Prosecutors said Karen "Gary" Kazaryan, 27, had hacked into hundreds of Facebook, Skype and email accounts to obtain naked or semi-naked pictures.

    It is alleged he threatened to post the nude images of victims publicly unless they removed their clothing on camera.

    If convicted, he could receive a maximum jail sentence of 105 years.

    A press statement from the US Department of Justice detailed the charges against Mr Kazaryan, of Glendale, California.

    Mr Kazaryan is said to have gained unauthorised access to hundreds of women's accounts, changing their passwords to prevent them from getting access.

    "Once he controlled the accounts, Kazaryan searched emails or other files for naked or semi-naked pictures of the victims, as well as other information, such as passwords and the names of their friends," the statement said.

    "Using that information, Kazaryan posed online as women, sent instant messages to their friends, and persuaded the friends to remove their clothing so that he could view and take pictures of them."

    If it was Thailand there'd be a few dozen photos of women with their baps out and a bit of pixelation.


    Damn PC Brits.

    105 years in prison seems a touch over-reactive.

    Especially as he'd soon hack his way out.
