KIDAPAWAN CITY – Authorities in Makilala, Cotabato arrested on Thursday an online tutor for allegedly extorting money from a Davao City-based law enforcer whom he had an “intimate relationship” through online chatting.

Major Arniel Melocotones, chief of the Makilala Municipal Police Station (MPS), identified the suspect as Jude Fundar of Purok-32 in Poblacion, Makilala.

Melocotones said the suspect posed as a girl whom the law enforcer had fallen in love with through exchanges of online messages.

He used as alias the name, “Hannah de Guzman.”

The relationship between the law enforcer and “Ms. De Guzman” has allegedly became intimate that the victim shared some of his video files and pictures that exposed his private body parts through chat.

The victim, whose identity has been withheld for security reasons, told authorities in Makilala that he started to doubt about “Ms De Guzman” when she started to ask for money.

Worse, he said, was when the “girl” allegedly blackmailed and threatened him to pose online his video files if he refused to give her money.

On February 13, the victim deposited the cash to “Ms De Guzman” through a money-cash-transfer remittance center.

De Guzman reportedly told him to deposit the money to Fundar.
