Social Media Extortion Scam

CrimeStoppers and the Honolulu Police Department want to warn the public about a social media scam regarding unknown females requesting to friend you. Once the friend request is accepted, the female will entice the person to commit a lewd act. If the act is performed, the female will inform you that the act has been recorded and if payment is not received the recording will be released on social media. Please do not friend anyone that you have not met in person.
