Sextortion photos of Miss Teen USA have landed a California teen in jail after he hacked into her computer to get pictures of the beauty queen naked through her webcam. This sextortion case reaches around the world as this same teen extorted other girls globally. He told them to send nude photos of themselves or to do disrobe as he watched them through the computer’s webcam, according to Fox News on Sept. 26.
If Miss Teen USA and the other young girls didn’t do what Jared James Abrahams said, he threatened to hack into their Facebook accounts and post nude photos of the girls that he obtained by hacking into their computers and taking pictures through their webcam.
Most young girls have their computers in their bedroom and this computer science major has been hacking into the computer webcams of people he knew and also by trolling Facebook for young girls. In June FBI agents raided Abrahams’ Temecula home and seized computers and hardware, cellphones and hacking software, court records show.
Miss Teen USA, Cassidy Wolf, went to the authorities when she was contacted, but unfortunately many of the young girls this guy targeted were frightened and did what he said to avoid a scandal. Abrahams has been charged with cybercrimes and extortion. He could face up to to two years behind bars if convicted, and he’s already confessed to this crime.
One young girl from Ireland wrote back to Abrahams agreeing to do what he asked over Skype, but asked him to please remember she is only 17. He wrote back to her that he didn’t care how old she was, but he is a man true to his word. He was letting her know that he will do what he said he would if she didn’t comply. She would have her nude photos all over the social networks. This is just one of many threats that this guy has made and sadly scared young girls were put into compromising positions for his own sick entertainment purposes.
Abraham confessed to the crimes when he was arrested. He also said he had done this to a number of girls. The police report stated:
“Abrahams used malicious software to disguise his identity in order to capture nude photos or videos of victims through remote operation of cameras on their home computers without their consent.”
He did the same thing to many of the girls. He would contact them and send them the pictures he had captured and threatened to hack into their social networks and post the nude and semi-nude pictures for all their friends to see. He agreed not to do this if the girls would send them naked pictures of themselves or stand in front of Skype for five minutes and do what he says, such as disrobe.
This is the type of case where many would like to see this guy put in a room with all the girls’ fathers and brothers and let him try and make those demands. All they would need is five minutes, just like he demanded from the teen girls! Miss Teen USA’s sextortion case started four months before she was crowned and while devastated, mortified and scared, she did the right thing by taking this to the authorities.
