Police are looking to arrest a young woman on a charge of blackmail after allegedly persuading men to perform sex acts on Skype before asking for money in exchange for not publicizing videos of their chats, police in the United Kingdom said.

The attractive woman, who was not identified, forced more than 20 men, aged between 17 and 36, to hand over 500 pounds ($766) by threatening to reveal their videos to friends and family members.

Most of the victims were students living in Welwyn Hatfield, Hertfordshire. Police said that all the men had been contacted by the young and attractive woman on social media sites.

The woman then encouraged the men to chat with her through Skype, and eventually persuaded them to perform sexual acts on camera.

After the encounters, the victims were contacted and notified that everything has been recorded and would be publicized on the Internet unless they paid up.
