SwingTime Swindle

By Viga Boland     Jan 31, 2007 in Crime
I love it when crooks get caught and these two have been caught trying to get others caught!
Let me unravel that.
"A Long Island man and woman, acting in concert, placed ads on an adult "swingers" Web site searching for "friends" to get to know better - in sort of a carnal way - Nassau County Police said."
Once they found some willing partners, they video-taped the subsequent sex sessions and then threatened to expose the swingers to their spouses unless they got lots of money in exchange for keeping silent.
The victims involved were both married to other people but after one of the male victims decided to go to police, a sting operation was set up and the blackmailers were caught.
"On Tuesday, police arrested the mastermind of the scheme when he met the male victim to exchange $50,000 to keep the pictures private. The woman from upstate was blackmailed for $51,000, but police recovered $20,000 of that, officials said."
The blackmailing duo's activities date back to 2006. "Now detectives are seeking others who may have been victimized in the plot and are asking anyone with information to contact CrimeStoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous."
Anyone you know? :))
