Porn scam targeting school kids

(Riverton, Wyo.) - A new scam that targets teen girls has been uncovered by local law enforcement and is currently under investigation by Wyoming Department of Criminal Investigation agents. According to Riverton Police Department Captain Eric Murphy, the scam was brought to their attention by kids in both Shoshoni and Riverton who told of a series of Facebook pages targeting girls. The sites allegedly report that the sender has pornographic images of the girls, and threatens to release the photos to family members and parents if they don't send more photos. "It's not someone from Fremont County, but someone out of the area doing this," Murphy said. Since the scam began, the threats have elevated to causing personal injury and death to girls or their families who do not cooperate. "It seems to be hitting everywhere in the state," Murphy said. He said it is something parents should be aware of. *Feature Photo: Royalty Free Image-Pexels / Pitchengine Communities * #county10 #news
