Sextortion Scam : Malaysia Leng Yein Exposed Massive Highly Organized Illegal Online Porn Ring – Help To Take Down More Than 136000 Images

Australian company Internet Removals told The Daily Beast with Leng Yein’s help, they have taken down more than 136,000 images and videos from the internet

MALAYSIAN DJ and Playboy model Leng Yein reportedly helped expose a “massive, highly organized online porn ring.”

Yein’s help reportedly lead to more than 136,000 illegal pornographic photos and videos of victims being taken down from the internet, The Daily Beast reported.

Leng Yein said that victims begged for her help, as they told her how they fell prey to scams on different social media platforms.

“The worst extortion case of naked photos in Malaysian history!” Leng Yein said in a YouTube video where she described the scam on Feb. 21.

Some of the victims were just eight to 11 years old.

Leng Yein – who has warned her followers about potential scams – said after her video, she received hundreds of messages about similar online scams.

People posing under fake identities on Facebook, Twitter and other sites would reportedly reach out to the victims.

They would promise the victims money or other items like iPhones in exchange for nude pictures and videos, The Daily Beast reported.

After the alleged predators got the pictures and videos, they would publish them online – without consent.

Some of the suspects would threaten to send victims’ nude content to family and friends if they did not continue sending images and clips to them.

Reputation management company Internet Removals typically charges for its services, but spokesperson Jasmine Loh told The Daily Beast that “the scale of harm caused by incidents was enough to warrant immediate action without cost to any of the victims.”

The content was removed from Mega, a hosting site in New Zealand.

Loh forwarded accounts to The Daily Beast that were found selling and distributing the porn.

Some of the accounts would charge over $100 for “private collections,” the news site said.

Following investigations from The Daily Beast into the reported exploited content, more than two dozen accounts across Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram were permanently suspended or removed, the news site said.
