A man has been arrested for alleged extortion over his ex-girlfriend's nude photos in Vietnam's Mekong Delta, local police said.
Nguyen Van Tuoi, 28, was caught in a cafeteria in Can Tho Town on Saturday evening when he was receiving VND100 million (US$4,482) from the woman, whose name was not disclosed.
She had contacted the police earlier, saying she was being extorted by Tuoi, who threatened to leak her explicit nude photos, which he had taken without her consent.
According to initial investigation, Tuoi shot the intimate images with his smartphone when they were still dating in May.
After they broke up, on Aug. 16 Tuoi sent three of the photos to the women and threatened to leak them to her family and relatives if she refused to have sex with him one more time.
She agreed and they met at a hotel the next day. But even after that, Tuoi continued to send her more photos and then blackmailed her into either continuing to have sex with him or paying him VND100 million.
She agreed to pay him but reported to the police.
