Police have arrested the man believed to be the mastermind behind the website Jamaicangirlsexposed.com. 27 year old Ronald Oates of a Kingston Address is the main suspect behind a major cyber crime offence involving the posting of nude photographs of women on a local website. He was arrested and taken in to custody and has been charged with breaches of the Cyber Crime Act and extortion, among other offences.
Oates is expected to appear in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate Court on Wednesday.
The police allege that Oates would hack into women's email account and threaten to post nude photos of them if they did not pay him. He demands $10,000 or more for the photos not to be put online. Police said he has received as much as $150,000 from one victim.
They added that the official number of women affected is 25, but the number could be in the 100s based on information unearthed when they arrested the 27-year-old suspect.
