Throughout her teenage years, a woman sent hundreds of nude pictures to her boyfriend seven years her senior, who is now blackmailing her.
The victim, Christine Ng, who is now 20, is dreading the thought that her nude photos may be exposed after she decided to end the relationship with him, whom she has never met in person.
“I met him on Facebook in early 2012 and we became close and chatted online a lot,” she said, adding she was aged 14 at the time.
“He wanted to have sex with me early on but I was scared, so I did not meet him,” she
said at a press conference held by MCA public services and complaints department head Datuk Seri Michael Chong at Wisma MCA here on Monday.
Ng, however, said that she relented and sent him nude pictures of herself to the man about six months into their online relationship.
She said she had wanted to break up the relationship by 2013 but was afraid to do so because the man threatened to release the pictures to her family and on the Internet.
“I was so afraid and traumatised – I even tried to commit suicide.
“I finally broke it off with him at the end of 2017, but I am scared as he kept harassing me,” she said.
She added that she recently lodged a police report on the issue after seeking help from Chong.
Chong said he has received 11 such cases this year.
“Please do not send compromising pictures of yourself to anyone as it can be easily used against you. Don’t trust anyone who asks for it,” he said. – The Star
