Utah mother shares experience of son who died by suicide after ‘sextortion’ scam

SALT LAKE CITY – A Utah mother is speaking out about the disturbing trend called Sextortion, where people online use personal pictures to blackmail victims.

Cindy George’s 21-year old son Jake Curtis died by suicide after becoming a victim of one such scam.

He was a month away from graduating from Utah Valley University. He wanted to be a teacher like his mom, but all that changed when he met a girl on Facebook in October 2015.
