Man using sex video to blackmail victims arrested

Agents of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) arrested a 23-year-old man who allegedly blackmailed three young women that their “sex videos” would be posted on the Internet if they refused to give in to his demands.

Head Agent Roland Argabioso, chief of the NBI Field Operations Division (FOD), said suspect Jeffrey Simbe, a 23-year-old student, was arrested last week during an entrapment in Sampaloc district, Manila.

Simbe will be facing charges of robbery-extortion, violation of Special Protection of Children against Abuse, Exploitation and Discrimination Act, and Anti-Violence Against Women and Their Children.

Argabioso said three women, one of them a minor, accused Simbe of filming sex videos with them and using these videos to blackmail the victims. Some of the complainants claimed that they were unaware that they were being filmed while having sex with the suspect.

One of the complainants told investigators that the suspect had threatened to distribute the video via the internet if she refused to have sex with him or if she decides to end their relationship.

Another victim who is still a minor also claimed that the suspect sent their video to Simbe’s friends via an online social networking site.

Argabioso said the opportunity to conduct the entrapment operation arose when the suspect asked P10,000 cash from one of the complainants in exchange for not distributing their sex video.

The woman, backed by the NBI, agreed to meet the suspect at a fastfood chain along P. Campa St., Sampaloc, Manila around 11:30 p.m. last November 23. It was then that the P10,000 cash was handed to the suspect.

The suspect had just accepted the marked bills from one of the complainants when NBI agents arrested him.

NBI agents found several video clips from the suspect’s cellphone showing him having sex with several women, including the complainants.
