Several months ago I posted about our client's online dating extortion ordeal. Our client was brave and determined enough to speak out publicly. Brandi Kruse at KIRO radio profiled his story, and he was one of the first victims to file this type of complaint with the IC3, the Internet Crime Complaint Center.
Since then, the IC3 has received a substantial number of similar complaints, so many that the FBI has issued a public alert. The FBI's investigation and alert are explained here, and the local update from Brandi Kruse is here.
Shortly after our investigation and the original story aired, baitmymate.com went offline.
