A man who lives in the 3100 block of Jackielane Drive contacted Columbus police at 2:59 p.m. March 27 regarding an ongoing extortion attempt involving faked nude photos of his sister.
The victim said that between March 1-26, he received four computer-altered images over Facebook of his adult sister not wearing clothing.
"The senders demanded 2 million Iraqi dinars for each image, which is roughly 1,400 U.S. dollars," the responding officer noted in his report.
"The victim has deleted all images and any correspondences from the senders. The victim wants the incidents documented in case the threats or demands continue."
