Cassidy Wolf Sextortion Photo Case: Jared James Abrahams Arrested

by at . Comments

Jared James Abrahams has been arrested in the case involving alleged sextortion photos of Miss Teen USA Cassidy Wolf and seven other women.

Abrahams, 19, of Temecula, Calif., is believed to have used malicious software to control their computer webcams and tape the women in the nude.

At that point, he allegedly sent them emails threatening to publish the photos of Cassidy Wolf and the other women if they did not send him more.

Abrahams went to great lengths to gain access to the victims’ computers, even creating a VPN to disguise his identity when he sent email threats.

Miss Teen USA Cassidy Wolf was the most high-profile victim, and allegedly the first target of his attacks, as well as an acquaintance of Abrahams.

The FBI first learned of the alleged plot in March via 18-year-old “C.W.,” who became concerned when she received an alert from a social networking site.

She was told her password had been changed, which she had not done. She said she then received “an extortionate email” with nude pics attached.

The sender, according to the complaint, said that C.W. should comply with his demands or have her nude photographs “plastered all over the Internet.”

Wolf spoke out about the case, both to get ahead of the story by telling her side and to raise awareness among other teens who could be targeted.
