Two males suspects landed in Las Pinas police custody when they pose as female recruiters for sexy models online. They offer 10,000 Pesos per photo if the candidate qualifies.

The college student accused of hijacking the webcam of Miss Teen USA Cassidy Wolf and other young women is a former high school classmate of the pageant winner. The suspect allegedly took nude images of the women using their own webcams, and then blackmailing them to send more explicit material.
Man Became Victims but do not Report
The police found more nude photos in the office of the sextortionists that prompted them to urge other victims to come forward. The Estafa or Extortion case will be stronger when there are multiple complainants.
