#1243113: NC: Arrest Made in ‘S**tortion’ Scam Involving More Than 40 Women, Including UNCG Students: Police
A man was arrested by UNC-Greensboro police after a three-month “sextortion” investigation, according to the university.
Kevin Kerney, 31, of Denton, is accused of pretending to be a modeling agent to solicit photos and extort social media accounts of young women.
UNCG reports the man offered the women the opportunity to become a model and requested revealing photographs.
Kerney then reportedly threatened to make the images public unless the victims shared private information, such as social media accounts and passwords.
