Extortion

Bill Mathew threatened to post a video of me if I didn't give send him $300 in Amazon gift cards within 2 days. I have reported him to local police and the police in Navarre, Florida where he supposedly lives. I believe he is an illegal alien as at 52 years old he doesn't have a full time job and only works odd jobs. Claims he is a cycling enthusiast. Says his daughter is in Bangladesh and/or India and his son attends Northwestern University and is on a 40% football scholarship. Claims his wife died in a car crash 6 years ago when he was in the middle east with the Air Force.

This is what happened I received an email with the contents from the above email address and a person named Pasquale Hollyer... what is really impressive I never visited the sites he mentioned.
I have cut and pasted his comments:

  • Monetary Loss: $0
I had a friend request from a pretty girl. Recently single I added this person. The conversation grew into sharing explicit video of each other. She immediately sent me a video of the conversation, and told me that if I did not pay 3000 she would share it with my place of employment, my friends, family etc.
