According to the article, the blackmailer was based in the Philippines but she was described as having blonde hair and blue eyes which doesn't sound right, does it?

Anyway, it's a stiff lesson for the young man involved. The scammer trousered $800 after threatening to share his nude pics with his family and employer, all of whom she found out about through his Facebook account. Yes, he foolishly gave out his full name to someone on a dating app he only knew for five minutes.
