After recieving the photos, instead of paying them, Mr Nik blackmailed the women into stripping, while he watched on Skype and masturbated. He was finally arrested after one woman complained to Chiang Mai police, who also seized mobile phones, hard drives and computer hardware.
Nik, who was arrested last Monday, worked for Channel One television station in the Northern Thai provincial center. The case is now before the courts. Police urged members of the public to beware of such scams.
