"I ended up being extorted"
Claudia clarified that the situation was generated during a weekend: "One Sunday I received a message on Instagram that said 'Hello, Claudia. I am contacting girls who have more than a thousand followers with the intention of sending them a breakfast in exchange for advertising'It was the first time they offered me an exchange. "
"More than starting an influencer career, I wanted to help this person who sold breakfasts. But in the end I ended up being extorted."
The 'modus operandi' of the accused
The sub -prefect Luis Orellana, head of Cybercrime of the Investigation Police (PDI), indicated that this individual achieved the passwords of his victims using an online form.In that document he would have requested some data from people and the creation of a password.
The woman revealed that that is when she fell into the trap, since she scored her "universal key", which she used in other social media accounts.

"I supplanted my identity to earn money"

The woman, dismayed by the situation, decided that "he was not going to send anything."After this answer, the victim said that the accused effectively committed the crime: "He uploaded a photo of mine in underwear to my Instagram. Then he continued uploading photos, both in publications and stories ... It was terrible, because I also discovered that the guy hadcreated false accounts to sell my photos. "
"To those who hooked, I sold my photos like 'Packs' (documents with intimate photos). Basically supplanted my identity to earn money," he said.
