FBI arrests Facebook hacker

Written by Nick Farrell



Blackmailed women


The Untouchables have fingered the collar of a bloke who they think had been hacking into hundreds of Facebook, Skype and email accounts and extorting women into showing him naked snaps.

Gary Kazaryan, 27, was named in a 30-count indictment by a federal grand jury. Prosecutors said that Kazaryan hacked into the victims’ accounts, and changed the passwords, which locked victims out of their own online accounts. He searched emails or other files for naked or semi-naked pictures of the victims and the passwords and the names of their friends.

Using that information, Kazaryan posed online as women, sent instant messages to their friends, and persuaded the friends to remove their clothing so that he could view and take pictures of them. When the victims discovered that they were not speaking with their friends, Kazaryan often extorted them again, using the photos to again coerce the victims to get their kit off on camera.

Kazaryan posted nude photos of some victims on their Facebook pages when they did not do what they were told, prosecutors said. Apparently Kazaryan victimised more than 350 women, but they have not identified all of the victims whose accounts were hacked. They found 3,000 pictures of nude or semi-nude women on Kazaryan’s computer.

If convicted on all counts, Kazaryan could face 105 years in federal prison which is a long time without seeing a naked woman.
