26-year-old Taruna Aswani, who is living in the US was checking her email on October 22 when a particular email caught her attention. She was surprised to see an email with a subject line “Long time no see”. After she opened the email, she found the following written.

“I have nude pictures and video that belongs to you that nobody else knows it exists beside the person you sent to (sic).”

The sender was a stranger called Kevin John, who threatened her of leaking the footage to her contacts.

Immediately after reading the email, Taruna contacted the Police, the Cyber Crime Department and the FBI, asking them to probe the case. Soon enough, she received a second threat, via email – from a person who claimed to have hacked into her Google cloud backup.

She also shared a post on social media about the plight she faced. It read:

“As embarrassing as the videos may be ( they were sent to my boyfriend at the time ) I choose to stand up to this man. Instead of cowering down to his requests. I do this so that other women may take a lesson to stand up to bullies and low life’s like this and may get the confidence to stand up as well in case he is known to us and is targeting all of us, but we’re either too scared, ashamed or clueless in how to manage or handle such situations… Perhaps someone may be able to locate this person through his digital footprint.”

The courage she has shown is commendable and something to inspire from. Many fell for these kinds of blackmailing and get harassed. What she has done is inspiring and will help other girls, even boys to stand against the perverts who threaten other people with images/videos of their private moments.
