An Irish OnlyFans star has been subject to a revenge porn threat after a trio of men allegedly blackmailed her with a promise that they would share her sexually explicit images with her parents, friends and colleagues, Newsweek reports.
OnlyFans has a policy that seeks to prevent this sort of blackmail of the woman star, forbidding users from taking images off the site and sharing them elsewhere.
The site may ban users who attempt to screenshot or record any of the content.
But according to an Irish company that promises to help customers scrub the internet of undesirable content of themselves, such a policy didn’t stop the men from blackmailing the woman who is an OnlyFans star.
However, Ceartas, an Irish company that says it can “remove your personal and private content from the internet,” has shared details of an OnlyFans breach that it called “our most disturbing case yet.”
Three Men Arrested After Blackmailing Woman With Her OnlyFans Photos
Ceartas posted on multiple social media sites information about the woman who is an OnlyFans star and was subjected to ruthless blackmail.
The men who threatened her claimed to have her home address, college address and the names of her parents.
The woman who clearly would rather keep her OnlyFans stardom a secret was blackmailed by the men for a “very large sum of money.”
The men boasted evidence that they had in their possession compromising images of the woman that they threatened to distribute, the Irish Examiner reports.
Two men are due in court on Wednesday evening charged in connection with an ongoing Garda investigation into an alleged blackmail and extortion attempt targeting an Irish OnlyFans content creator.
