ROP arrests a person on blackmailing charges

Muscat: The Royal Oman Police (ROP) has arrested a person for defrauding girls and impersonating a security employee. 

A statement issued online by ROP said, "The General Department of Criminal Investigations and Investigations arrests a person on charges of defrauding girls and impersonating a security employee to delude the victims of his ability to secure their personal accounts from hacking into a social media and as soon as he obtains the data, he steals the accounts and extorts them to pay sums of money."

He also used an application to publish a recruitment advertisement for women to lure them through social media, as well as requesting personal information and account numbers, and then requesting them to send shameless videos in order to blackmail them later. Legal procedures are being completed against him.
