A married State Department employee has been arrested and accused of ‘sextorting’ college students from his computer at the U.S. Embassy in London.
Father-of-one Michael C. Ford from Alpharetta, Georgia, allegedly hacked into computers of victims as young as 18, stole sexually explicit photos and then tried to blackmail them.
Authorities, who detained him at Atlanta’s Hartfield Jackson International Airport last week, say in one case he posed as a Google employee to obtain a password and sometimes referred to himself as a ‘talent scout’.
Among the women he targeted were an 18-year-old from Kentucky and a 22-year-old from Illinois.
