A Hamilton man has been arrested for posing as an agent for a fictitious modelling company and trying to extort racy pictures from a female victim.
OPP from the Norfolk County detachment arrested the 22-year-old on Monday following an investigation that started in June.
The suspect has been charged with extortion, criminal harassment and identity fraud.
The OPP say it’s not clear how the victim and the suspect met, but did say they weren’t likely known to each other before the scam took place.
Police also say they aren’t sure if there are any other victims, but believe it’s possible.
They’re encouraging anyone who thinks they’ve had contact with a man who’s posing as a modelling agent to call their local police service.
