Alexandria Police are investigating the extortion of thousands of dollars from a man claiming to be the victim of blackmail.
On September 1, the victim started a romantic relationship online with a Twitter user, whose account has since been suspended. The victim told police that he paid initially to be involved with the suspect by making multiple payments to the latter’s Cash App and Zelle accounts.
About three weeks later, the Twitter user threatened to reveal the victim’s identity to the public with an explicit video unless he was paid a total of $6,500, according to a search warrant affidavit.
Instead, the victim called the police.
Police found a number of text messages between the victim and the suspect’s California phone number: “I have tons of info on you… You send me $2,500 Right now it won’t be exposed,” and “So send it or your entire family friends, work, and clientele, will know about everything.”
